PostSubject: First swish with the Fisher1280x   Mon Oct 05, 2009 5:04 pm

From the land of the Bluenose.....the yard sale went well over the weekend but unfortunately Marie is now under the weather with a cold and such so spent most of the day taking care of her.

Took off for an hour and went to a lake that is about 10 minutes from home and fired up the Fisher.

First impression of the Fisher was that it was not on as it is so quiet and a tad on the heavy side compared to the Seahunter. Notched the discrimination half way as with the volume control which is a great feature. Coil is larger and the wire to the headphones appeared to be much more rugged. Have Rick from Sweetdreams Detector hooking me up with an extra battery pack (one in it a tad finnigy) and a hip mount.

For the pleasant half hour that I used it it was a joy and doesn't chatter or fad in and out like the Seahunter. Managed 13 coins at 39 cents, a dinkie and a religious medal thingie. Overall first swish was a success but from the reviews I'll limit it to fresh water and leave her home when I go south this winter!


Any help or advise on operating this non Garrett appreciated!
