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.

Just got my White's Coinmaster GT today. Needed and upgrade as I had been using a White's Classic II for years. On my first day out I found a a quarter and penny in my front yard. My husband and I then decided to go to the school yard near our home. We had not been there 10 minutes before we found a 1936 walking liberty 50 cent piece and a 1943 silver quarter. What a couple of great finds on our first day!
We also purchased the White's bullseye pin pointer which helped pinpoint the locations. Detector is easy to operate right out of the box. I am totally sold on the White's products.
