Most helpful review for Fisher F44Fisher f44-great detector for the money
The F44 provides a lot of performance for a machine a little over $300. No other machine on the market has near the features of the F44 for the money. The custom mode, where tones can be assigned to each category, is an industry first that I'm sure many others will copy. Depth is very good for a low priced machine, and separation is decent.
Fisher advertises it as weatherproof, but I've found that if you're water hunting and happen to drop it, it won't leak. I wouldn't intentionally submerge it though. The build quality is good and light. Just because it doesn't weigh five pounds and made of steel doesn't mean it's not durable. Fisher machines are a lot tougher than they look.
This would be a very good beginner machine, as it's not too complicated. But I've got over 40 years in the hobby and don't feel at a disadvantage using it.

All I can say is that this is one great machine!! I bought it for the hunts that I do with my local treasure club because I was really beating up my minelab and wanted a machine that was lighter with the frequency shift toggle so I could have less interference from other machines. Well to make a long story short, the machine did great at the hunts. However one must practice at your local park to gain the nessasary exsperience needed to participate in a compitition hunt. Well I had heard that Tesoro had some really great discrimination, and could really ferret coins out of trashy areas. This is no bull, I love the light feel and continue to pull old coins out of parks with it to this day. No it doesn't go as deep as my minelab but I have found coins at a respectable 10''. Not bad by anyones standards, and indeed a very fast machine.
