My first Fisher! Can't believe it's been 27 years....

My first Fisher was the Fisher 1220-X. I found my first silver coins and gold rings with this machine! Boy did my wrist hurt after swinging this machine for several hours! No ergonomics!

It was easier to swing your arm. But it was the best thing going at the time.

I the late 70's I sat in an 1802 era indian fort and watched a guy with a Fisher 441 just rack up in a trench / breast works. I decided to buy a Fisher. My first was a 553-D. It was awesome. I wore it out and bought a 555-D . It was a great machine too. Then I bought a 1260-X . Found memories

The 1220x was my first good detector back in the early 80's....great little detector. I just found a new old stock 1220x on craigslist for 70 bucks shipped ! I'm anxious to get the 1220x out once again !

I remember when all detectors looked like that and some of the newer ones where coming out with the arm cuff. I told my dad that they looked weird like a crutch. I can't see swinging one like that anymore for the life of me, few months ago I tried swinging a old Compass and it was hard on my wrist. The first detector I used was his old one and it was a Radio Shack model with handle like a vacuum cleaner which was behind the control box.
