    Beginner metal detector?

    So im buying my first metal detector. I just got interested in this and have been doing my research and right now Iím leaning toward the fisher f22 but I would like to get opinions on what you guys think the best is for a beginner. I also looked into the Garrett 300. I want to order today or tomorrow so I hope to here back from some of you soon!

    Are you looking for gold nuggets at the bottom of the ocean or zincolns at the park?

    Details... What, where, when, how, why? Not an easy answer unless you tell us what/where you plan on searching.

    I started with a garret 200 ,reasonable priced and did all I wanted it to do...I wouldn't get into a high priced detector to start in case you find out detecting isn't what you want

    I plan on searching the forests around my area. There is a lot of history on the eastern shore of md. Also might take it to the beach.

    It does not work well on salt water beaches, it is single freq detector, will work well in the forests.

    I highly recommend get Garrett 250 second hand if you able get one. If I go back from start I would pick this detector. It an all round detector with good quality built. Forest it will do great and beaches you will mostly detect on the dry sand (its not suited on wet sand). Also if you later decide this hobby not suit your need, resell easy also as it good brand and there always someone has their eyes on this model. Best luck

    I have a F22 and it is great for rec. park/playground hunting and fine for open field. I actually love the all metal mode its my favorite for trashy sites.
    Pinpointing has a learning curve due to the teardrop coil.
    The 250 is hard to beat for the price if you really want VDI, but for the bang I would go for a Tesoro Compadre or Mojave. The Mojave is a really great price at $250.

    If you really want the F22 I would part with mine as I have moved up so to speak. you can email me at travis.e.mitchell@gmail.com
    Best Luck

    I would highly recommend you buy a decent pin pointer as well. Don't skimp on it. It is well worth the $!

    If I had to start over, I'd start with a Land Ranger Pro or a Eurotek Pro.
    Decent features and performance at a cheap price.

    If you need everything including digger and pinpoint and want a TOP performer, T2+ complete package is $550.
