    I’m 66 yrs old and bought my first metal detector from Hollandsbrook in Dec., 2011. I bought the Fisher F2 with 8″ & 4″ coils and Marc gave me a great deal. It is very light weight and easy to use. If you get a solid signal…there is something there. You may have to dig 6 – 7″ down and search awhile for it, but it will be there. The pinpoint feature is dead on which means you can dig small holes.

    I know you are waiting to hear about finding Gold with the F2, so here is the story.

    While hunting with the F2 on Jan 15, 2012(a little more than a month after getting it), I got a solid zinc signal 57 which would normally be a memorial penny. After digging down about 1.5 – 2″ I pulled out a 18k solid gold watch with 42 small diamonds. It just goes to show that you don’t need a really expensive detector to find gold. What you need is LUCK!!!

    I would reccomend the F2 to anyone looking for a light weight detector that loves finding coins and jewelery.

    Just prior to Christmas I did tons of internet research on which detector was the best for a beginner. The Fisher F2 name kept comiing up on internet forums. After much deliberation I contacted Marcus about purchasing the F2 package with 2 coils and a pinpointer. His price was outstanding and I hit the go button on an order.

    The detector arrived quickly and was packaged well.

    Upon opening the F2 was easy to assemble and the instruction manual was clear and easy to understand. The F2 is easy to learn and I have had a great time with it. It finds targets shallow or deep, and the pinpointing feature is invaluable.

    I would buy the F2 again and I would certainly purchase from HollandsBrook.

    I bought the F2 from HollandsBrook right before Christmas 2011. So far, I’m loving this detector, especially when using the 4″ sniper coil. It really seems to get in between the trash and spot the coins. In the last couple of metal detecting trips, I’ve found about $5 in clad, several Mardi Gras doubloons, 3 wheat pennies, old game tokens, and an old ax head. The pinpoint function works great, usually putting me right on the coin.

    HollandsBrook was great to order from. Received my detector quickly and it was well-packaged. I would definitely recommend this detector and HollandsBrook for anyone thinking of joining the hobby.

    Ive had my f2 for a couple months now and I love it. I started with a bounty tracker iv and used it only a couple of times. After getting the f2 with a dd coil it blew the bh out of the water and I’m hooked on the hobby. I stopped digging a ton of junk and started hitting coins with great accuracy. The only thing I may look for in the future is a couple more features but for now I am so glad I went with the f2 and purchased from hollandsbrook they were great to work with!

    I bought this unit after many recommendations here and on the forums.

    While I haven’t used it much, I find it to be an accurate machine when set up properly…..make sure you notch out iron when coin shooting, and knock down sensitivity a notch…make extra sure that you tighten the connector to the control box to avoid undue chatter. I’m very happy with my purchase, and would recommend this to anyone looking for an entry level unit that will NOT go into the salt water.

    I recenty bought the F2 along with the 3 coil package. This is my second detector, and although it is considered “entry level”, it is still a great machine. I found many coins and relics in my yard that my other “higher end” detector had missed. The F2 is very light and easy to swing. It is also great for playgrounds. Hollandsbrook provided great communication, pricing, and fast delivery. I am very pleased with my purchase.

    I’ve had my Fisher F2 for a few months now and to say I’m satisfied with it would be a gross understatement. It is the perfect beginner detector and a huge HUGE upgrade to my old BH Tracker IV

    Pros:

    Fast Target Recovery – Meaning that even if you swing relatively fast, the detector will still pick up the metal in the ground.
    Easy Filters – Hit the notch button a few times and you won’t hear iron, tabs, zinc, whatever. Sometimes it’s nice to set your F2 on Dime/Quarter and go to town
    Tones AND Numbers – Don’t like looking at a screen? The tones will tell you what you need to know. Don’t like listening to the tones? The numbers will tell you what you need to know.

    Lightweight – eeeaaaasssssyyyyyyy swinging

    Comes with a Free Sniper Coil and Pinpointer – for real
    Good on batteries – Gone through one set in three months …. and that’s without using headphones
    Built-in Pinpointer Function – Works well when you forget your real propointer at home.

    Cons:

    ok, I’m really stretching to find some here …. I guess it’s kind of a pain to switch out coils if you have big fingers
    ummmmm
    the shaft was hard to install …. because I didn’t read the instructions

    actually, that’s all I have for cons

    pound for pound, the F2 is the best starting detector for your money.
    Fast, lightweight, accurate with tons of options and a free 4″ coil and pinpointer.
    you will not regret grabbing one of these.

    I was in search of a detector and wasn’t sure which one to purchase so I asked Marc for his advice and he suggested the F2. I am extremely happy that I had asked for his help. This is such an easy machine to learn. I bought the package deal with the 4″ coil (I highly suggest the little guy). The 4″ (Sniper) coil is absolutely amazing. I had hunted a location for months while using the 8″ coil and was advised to go over the same location with the 4″ and was stunned at the results. I would highly recommend this machine to anyone. I have found some gold, some silver and lots of relics with this machine. I also would highly recommend Hollandsbrook for the great service and pricing that you would receive. Marc has been a pleasure to deal with each time that I make purchases from him.

    I LOVE this machine! I also bought the 11DD coil from Marc to scan large fields, and it works great. I wish I would of bought this before buying the Bounty Hunter IV…the F2 blows it away. This is the 2nd time I’ve bought from hollands brook and I have zero complaints….I’ll be buying from Marc again for sure.

    I purchased the F2 as a second detector to have for friends to use. I found myself using it the other day and it was really impressed. It is simple to use and yet able to find everything a more expensive detector can. First time users will not have a problem finding the good stuff with this detector. What a great machine!

    Marc was wonderful in answering all of my questions. I will buy from Hollandsbrook in the future.
