    I Just Ordered A New F22!

    I just ordered a new F22 from Kellyco. I was undecided between that and the Eurotek Pro but, the weather proofing and smaller coil footprint sold me on the F22. I am looking forward to receiving it.

    Hi Bill,

    How do you like your F22? I bought one in March as well. I've used it in my yard, in the woods, and at the beach. I am new to detecting, but can tell you that I am having a blast with mine. And I'm still on the original 2 AA batteries. I have found a bunch of coins (all clad so far), various metal objects, including brass, lead, and steel, and loads of beer tabs, bottle caps, and soda/beers cans. (too many!) I even found an old license plate almost a foot deep in my lawn.

    I also picked up a Whites TRX pin pointer. It really speeds up digs.

    Happy Hunting!

    I wonder how it compares to the old F2?

    Tom:

    I really like it. As you mentioned, not only can we use readily available AA batteries but, they really last a long time. I bought some really good rechargeable AA's I am going to try also. There are many features I like but really, at my age, that large screen and readout is very nice....and the unit is weatherproof. The programs are really well thought out for most hunting applications and...the only thing I did change was to add a Garrett handgrip which is a lot thicker and, I also left the stock grip on the shaft near the arm cup .Click image for larger version.

    I think I remember reading a review before I ordered mine and they said it worked better because it had several additional features. (Weatherproofing, maybe?) What those were, I can not speak to as I have never used an F2 but, I think it is safe to say that Fisher did not take a step backwards when they introduced this. Maybe some others here can comment that have used both?

    PS If I can find that review, I will edit and post a link to it here.

    ***EDIT*** Found it: http://metaldetectorreviews.net/dete...hp?x=357&y=201

    Looks like it says better depth, weatherproof control box and 2 AA batteries rather than two 9 volts with the F2.
