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.

I bought this machine several years ago. The average depth of coins it finds is around 6 inches. So far my best finds are several old wheat pennies, a 1901 indian head penny and a 1942 walking liberty hlf dollar and a 1940 mercury dime.
However if u are looking for the old stuff i would suggest a minelab in the 600 to 700 dollar price range.
