A month ago I started searching for an upgrade for my aging Fisher F2. Metal detecting for me is more of a hobby. This detector package checked all the boxes in what I find useful. The Ground Grab feature really helps with our iron rich clay soil. The 11” DD coil gives me the type of sweep I like when scanning the ground. It also came with an excellent digging tool along with a top notch Fisher F-Pulse pinpointer. As a test, I went back to some of places I’ve already hunted many times with my older Fisher F2 and found several coins using the Fisher F44. In my book, this make this a winning package. Thanks to the crew of High Plains Prospectors for making it happen.
