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.

Most helpful review for Teknetics Gamma 6000Just As Deep As The Omega 8000
Anyone wondering about the gamma 6000 on its ability shouldn't worry no more I'm here to tell you its a sweet unit and just as deep as the omega 8000 and I think maybe a little stabler, one of the lightest detectors on the market and feels lighter than a tesoro and seems to get best performance using the 2 tone mode, ground grab feature works well and also the pinpoint feature when your getting a dead on 55 showing on the meter and is small like the coin 90 percent thats what it will be, the thing is if you don't have the money for the omega the gamma will work just as good and seems to be the one that handles EMI better than the rest of them.
