    F-pulse and foil

    My Fisher F-pulse isn't very sensitive to foil and I was just wondering if this is normal. By foil, I mean Ketchup packets, foil bottle seals, gum wrappers, Etc... My detector, Whites V3i, hits all these targets just fine but the pinpointer almost needs to be touching them before it will signal. Is this normal or should I contact Fisher?

    It’s a Pulse Induction detector. The pulse delay setting is probably too long to respond to thin foil (or tiny gold)/

    Would a Garrett carrot work better on foil?

    Let me get this straight. You have a F-Pulse but you can't figure out how to get it to hit aluminum foil? Take your time and read the instructions again and go through all the menu choices a couple times. I don't know but it sure sounds like you are de-tuning it maybe too close to metal when you turn it on? I mean like one foot away might still cause a de-tune. They hit such tiny gold no other pinpointer comes close. Even that Falcon I saw videos it did not hit as good.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    If your heart is in it you will find a thousand ways to achieve your goal.
    If your heart is not in it you will find a thousand excuses.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    L-rods are obsolete.

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    I'm thinking my F-pulse may have an issue then. I turn it on way away from the detector or any metal, yet it still beeps and vibrates all the time. I may have to contact Fisher to send it in for service.

    Maybe check the batteries. Lots of counterfeit batteries out there, run for 15 minutes and puke out.

    The re-tune function of just pressing the button for a fraction of a second be sure not to be near any metal when you do this or it will de-tune.

    i just had to try it so I got a piece of aluminum foil about the size of a quarter and it hits from about 1 1/4" on power level two. Didn't try the other power levels.

    Just sent in a brand new one I got with the package deal with the f75 it was acting very erratic when I called to check on it after seeing it had made it to fisher I was told there was nothing wrong with the unit,was asked what batteries I use and I replied lithium batteries and was told by Felix (over tech) that was what they suspected and for me to use alkaline batteries instead.According to tracking info I should have the unit back Monday.

    I absolutely love the f pulse for fit and finish but it just slows me down and I am not as efficient of a digger while using it. Way too chatty and it is hard to distinguish what may be a good coin a little deeper down or it's just talking back to me. I've been using it more lately and really TRYING to like it. I think the carrot and TRX will be the go to's.

    Oh.....and good grief the thing does not get along with my F-75 AT ALL! even after flipping through the different frequencies. Frustrating.

    Lithium so powerful it is picking up the batteries themselves or the electronics inside the pinpointer. LOL
