    Not even close to the same. Most Apple, Dell, Compaq and other laptops are DESIGNED and built by companies in Taiwan. They are a world leader in engineering and electronics design and manufacturing. Huge difference between them and China.

    Does anybody actually know where the F2 is made, or is it just a general assumption that they're made in China?

    Assemble them here. Americans need the jobs. If we have to pay abit more, so what? Goes for toys too.

    Just my opinion.

    I have been to both countries, and yes it is the same. The companies you have noted have all designed and engineered their products in the good ole USA. I agree that they do have expertise within the electronics industry, I am just stating that they are not the worlds leader when it comes to metal detectors. If Whites, Garrett, Tesero and Minelab can avoid the "Chinese connection" then the others should too.

I still like my CZ20 and just don't like its saltwater mode being on all the time with no way to turn it off for more gold chains like the Excal and Tiger finds.
    From what I have read the ONLY FTP product being made in China was the Bounty Hunter Jr. I recently saw a post by Carl on another forum. I believe he was pretty adament about fisher being made in USA. If some electronic components are being sourced outside the US, how is that any different from most other electronic devices we use? The performance is there, the quality is there, the customer service is there. It is quite obvious, the motivation to design new detectors with new usable features is there. The engineers actually post on these forums. They have nothing to hide. I would like to see what Dave J. has to say on the 'China' subject.

    This is Fishers answer to the Garrett Ace 250 that took so much business away.
    It seems it was a GOOD answer from what I can tell.
    But I may skip it and just get the F4 like I orignially intended.

    Will you be hunting in All Metal? If not the ground balance adjustability feature is useless. It is fixed ground balance in disc mode. F2 with the same coil should be about the same performance as the F4 in disc mode. I may be wrong, but that is what I was told by users of both the F2 & F4.
