The Fisher F22 is a weatherproof modern A-brand metal detector with a perfect price-quality ratio. A good starter metal detector equipped with object identification in numbers, for accurate object recognition. Also a pinpoint function, notch discrimination and a depth display are not lacking. Thanks to the weatherproof design, you can continue searching even during a rainstorm. No need for rain covers anymore! Due to the simple operation and light weight the ideal metal detector for the whole family !
The Fisher F22 metal detector features numeric object identification (1-99). Once the metal detector detects an object, a number appears in the center of the display. Each number represents a metal type / object type. (For example no. 76 a euro coin, number 20 iron) This allows you to learn to identify (recognize) objects. In addition, the Fisher F22 detector features 5x audio pitch object identification. The metal detector then gives different audio tones for the different types of metal. For example, a high tone for silver, a low tone for iron and a middle tone for gold.
The Fisher F22 is a weatherproof metal detector, this means that you can work with this detector in the rain without any problems without using a rain protection cover for the display. This is a big advantage over other detectors. However, the F22 is not completely waterproof, so you cannot use the control panel with the electronics underwater.
You can adjust the sensitivity (depth) yourself, as well as the discrimination. (ability to discriminate unwanted objects such as nails and beer caps). The F22 detector also features a Notch function for the most accurate metal selection.
The Fisher F22 features a waterproof search coil and stem, the electronics control panel is weatherproof, but not waterproof. This allows you to use only the search coil and stem underwater.
This metal detector excels in its depth range and its rapid response (recovery) speed. The latter is especially important if there are multiple objects right next to each other. Most metal detectors will only give you 1 signal. You will notice with the Fisher F22 that it lets you hear and see that there are multiple objects.
The depth range of the Fisher F22 is good. As with all other metal detectors, the principle is that the depth range always depends on the size of the object. The larger an object is, the deeper the F22 can detect it. In addition, other factors can play a role in the depth range such as soil type and soil conditions, material type, etc. In general, we can say that the Fisher F22 can detect an object the size of a single coin at a depth of 25-30 cm, and large objects to a maximum depth of 1 meter.
The Fisher F22 has an additional pinpoint function with depth display in inches. This is an aid for precisely locating objects. It allows you to better determine the location of the object and you will have less work digging up the object. While pinpointing, you can read the depth of the object in cm. on the display.
