So my son has been wanting a detector. I told him to save up his allowance and I would match whatever amount he put towards it. We ended up getting the Fisher F2 with a 4", 8" and 11" head.
It came in the mail today and we put it together as soon as I got home. Went up underneath the clothesline and within 5 minutes found a dime about 4 inches deep. (Beginners Luck)
Anyhow - we are marking plenty of other dimes, but we did and can never find them. So my question is - Where do you dig? When the beep happens do you dig at the center of the head or do you dig at the leading edge of the head? I hope that makes sense.
Your fisher f2 pinpoint spot should be dead center in the little circle in the coil. Test this by dropping a dime on the surface and swinging over it, slowly narrow down your swings to end up directly over top, see where it is sitting(again should be dead center of coil)
