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 strictly for coin hunting. I don't plan on using it on the beach. I didn't want anything I would have to program, and take away/distract from my hunting time. I also didn't want to dig foil/tabs. I watched the video tape, and set the discrimination to reject everything except Dimes, Quarters, 50 Cent pieces and dollars.
Within 6 hours I found a bunch of coins , and a gold ring, 2-8 inches deep. When the better coil becomes available (deeper) I will purchase it. Other than that, I bought the carry bag and a pinpointer.
