Fisher F5 any good as first detector?
« on: February 07, 2016, 09:32 pm »
Hi all

I've seen a Fisher F5 near me for sale and I'm quite new to hobby and have been looking around for a decent detector to start out with

So has anybody any thoughts on the F5 ? I would be very grateful if any advice

Many thanks

I don't know a great deal about them apart from I'm not a lover of the noise it makes.  Gary will be your best guide on one of these.
I do it with an AKA Sorex Pro

Very nice detector overall.
Coil heavy so it feels unbalanced.
Prone to EMI.
Similar performance to the Omega.

I had both Omega and F5. Neither were depth demons.
