    Need some Advice

    I currently have a fisher f22 but just received a Titan 9000. Which one is better? I am still VERY new at this.

    Who can resist the Titan 9000's features like "Sniff-Mode, Blanker Mode, and the Zilog Hyper-Fast Computer"? LMAO!!!

    Honestly I know Fisher makes a good machine and know nothing about Titan, so I can't say which is better.

    to see which one is better as to refresh/recovery rate, take 2 coins and put them about 6 inches apart on the ground. sweep each machine over them using your normal sweep speed. Do both hit on both coins? I had a friend over a few weeks ago, he has an older Bounty hunter Land Ranger. It took almost 3 ft to reset so once you hit on a target it took almost 3 feet of sweep time before it could detect the next target. That machine takes a real slow sweep speed to be effective, otherwise you are going to miss many targets. I like a fast sweep speed which is conducive with the F75LTD, but may not be so good with the Titan, I am sure the F22 will hit on both coins at 6" apart or closer, let me know how your titan does.

    watch this video starting at 16:33 mark to get an understanding as to what I am asking you to do.

    I tested a F22 and it was pretty decent, it picked up the copper core out of an old spark plug my other machine said was iron that I passed over.
    Only problem I had with it was the membrane pin point button stopped working.

    My girlfriend was using a Fisher F2 and she found a lot of things with it and to me it was a really nice detector for the money. Only problem with it was you couldn't be within 500 yards of a cell phone tower or it'd go nuts.

    Can't speak for the Titan but I own the F22 and have several hundred hours on it and its a good machine for the money. Doesn't have the depth and separation of a >400 dollar machine but it will find you plenty of coins. It's actually my favorite tot-lot hunter. Pinpointing on my unit is worthless but using the wiggle method works fine.

    Sorry to hear about your pinpoint button. I still find myself pinpointing the old fashioned way, Swing in an X pattern over the target. How long have you had the F22? Is it still under warranty? I'd contact Fisher, if it's under warranty.
