Pros: For the money the Fisher F2 Metal Detector is hard to beat for the entry level hobbyist. It has just about everything you would want in a metal detector at this price point.
Cons: Not the best performer in wet conditions.

The Fisher F2 is a highly recommended entry level metal detector. It is easy to use, versatile and durable. It is very good at penetrating a diversity of soils and sands. For the price it is hard to beat the Fisher F2 and the Fisher brand is very well respected in the Metal Detecting world.
