Cheap and nasty Toy comes to mind I think minelab could of done a lot better in the strength of this machine like the etracs and explorer models in the plastic. For one the arm cuff that you side up after a while it splits and the bottom shaft is not locked to the middle shaft which just swings about it's a shame that this is a bad design by minelab it's properly their worst yet which is not good for the best and most expensive machines on the market, so come on minelab sort it out.

Fisher 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.
