I'm new to prospecting and I just received my Fisher F22 Detector. I won't be able to use it until spring because I live in New England and right now we are in the middle of winter. But I can write about the overall fit and feel and quality of the detector. I will say that the unit is very handsome and rugged. The controls are pretty straight forward and are laid out well. The LC Display is very clear and it has a nice large readout. The information on the display is layed out in a concise manner. The owner's manual is also written straight forward and is very easy to understand for beginners like myself. I have used the unit briefly in my home, using sample metal objects to detect. I also have to talk about High Plains Prospectors themselves. When looking for the Fisher F22, I searched the internet including Amazon first. I must tell you that High Plains and Amazon both came in with the same cost and free shipping. BUT their were some big differences between them. High Plains also included a fantastic pointer detector, a hand shovel and a magnifying eye loop in the shipment FOR FREE. Amazon only sends the detector and nothing else. I would not hesitate to use High Plains Prospectors in the future for all my prospecting needs. I also will report back in the spring time when I can get out to the many beaches in my area and start hunting. Thank you again for everything at High Plains. Kevin in Galilee - Narragansett, RI.
