On your first metal detecting outing, you may have found a few coins, nails and metal debris. You might not be excited, but there’s a reason why! Don’t get discouraged. Your swing technique really IS important! Here are 4 expert “Swing Technique” tips:
Keep your search coil as close to the ground as possible. Swing parallel to the ground. The biggest mistake is swinging like a pendulum or an ark. You will miss targets this way.
Swing slow. Each pass should be at least 2-4 seconds.
Overlap swings to make sure you don’t miss valuable targets.
To guarantee you are covering the most ground, go over the ground in the opposite direction in a grid like fashion with your detector.

“The new Fisher F22 is perfect for hunting in the toughest weather conditions … intuitive menu structure and turn-on-and-go design – perfect for users at all levels!” – Daniel Bernzweig of Detector Electronics Corp.
Last week we got out with the new Fisher F22 metal detector from Fisher Metal Detectors. To show you some real conditions, we went out metal detecting while it was raining to give this new weatherproof detector a true field test. This middle model in Fisher’s newest “F” series line-up offers quite a few features for the price. This well equipped mid level detector has a street price of just $229. We believe this unit offers exceptional features and value at an aggressive price.
Oops! Dropped it in the Water – Fisher F22 Metal Detector Field Test Review Video:
Daniel Bernzweig of Detector Electronics Corp. said “The new Fisher F22 is perfect for hunting in the toughest weather conditions. This model is clearly one of the most cost effective weatherproof machine available today.” He also said “We were impressed with the intuitive menu structure and turn-on-and-go design – perfect for users at all levels!”
F22 Weatherproof Metal Detector Features
This new model offers four modes of operation: Jewelry, Coin, Artifact and Custom. Above the F22 is the Fisher F44 and below it is the Fisher F11 metal detector models. If you are ready to take a next step up or are looking for a well featured weatherproof model, you will not find a model with more features for your dollar. The well thought out 9 segment visual target identification display is easy to read. With this feature, you can easily identify and separate junk targets from treasure. Four tone target identification allows you to hear what’s in the ground before you retrieve it. With Fishers’ patented adjustable iron audio feature, you will be picking out good targets from even the most trash infested locations!
Identify your targets with the large 2 digit target identification scale that goes from 1-99. This fully weatherproof detector model weighs just 2.3 pounds and operates on just two AA batteries. This model features a 9-Inch triangulated concentric search coil. 10 levels of adjustable sensitivity let you precisely tune this machine to your style of metal detecting. Like all Fisher metal detectors, the F22 is covered by a 5 year warranty.
