Random chance seems to have operated in our favor
Re: Advice needed on Fisher 1236-X2
Will say that the 1236X2 is a great detector for most use. It has very good depth in my area, the silencer works real well around powerlines and transformers-it also hels w/mileralized soil. I like that it has an iron null and still operates in all metal although for relics would leave it switched off. The frequency shift is great around other detectors allowing to cut down on cross-talk interference. It's pretty lightweight at 3 lb. It's also hip-mountable which helps lighten the weight even more-less fatigue means more time in the field. The price seems to be dropping as they were selling it for $359. last year. I think you would be happy with the unit but don't just take my opinion-see what else is said. By the way, I just happen to like Fishers in general. One of my 1st units was the old 552, then the 1266, followed by the 1235, then the 1236X2. HH and keep smilin'
