Fisher F-Pulse Review in practice (+ opinions)

It’s really a shame that the MD-Hunter blog didn’t exist in the ’60s. We would have known for certain who and when was the first to make (and set to launch for sale) a pinpointer. As now it is anybody’s guess… Garrett, Fisher, or White’s? Today, any serious MD manufacturer has at least one probe in its lineup. Interestingly, it is not so simple to make a pinpointer. For instance, Nel promised to manufacture a super probe but failed. XP has managed to produce its pinpointer just now. Besides, this year (2017) we have seen 5 new devices at once: the XP MI-6, Minelab PRO-Find 35 / 15, Tenetics Tek-Point, and Fisher F-Pulse. Do you know what unites them? Great depth and ability to withstand submersion. Continue reading

Fisher F-Pulse Photo Review and my first impression

I took the Fisher F-Pulse (same as the Teknetics Tek-Point) in my hands, and… at max sensitivity it turned out to be a real ‘Sword of the Jedi’. This device can definitely stand comparison with some inexpensive metal detector. Do you have a Garrett ACE 250 with a stock coil? I am going to you then and rip you to shreds, in terms of depth )) Continue reading

Fisher F-Pulse Depth Test. Most powerful pinpointer

No matter you want it or not, but pinpointers have increasingly greater depth capabilities. The joke about the probe that can surpass some low-cost metal detector equipped with a 7-8 inch coil is not a joke anymore, but a reality. And above all, when they tried to increase the pinpointer’s detection depth before, it resulted in lots of false signals, hence turning the device from a helpful tool into the one that is a pain. But now, some metal detector manufacturers have got an increased depth and stable operation provided at the same time. Here’s a Fisher F-Pulse depth test. Do you find this depth good?

Depth test: Minelab Pro-Find 35 vs Pro-Find 15. Which is deeper?

What’s better for a pinpointer: max depth or super sensitivity to tiny targets? Minelab revealed the two new probes: an expensive and a cheap one. And what’s the difference between them in terms of depth? It’s an interesting question. Here’s a comparison: testing the depth on the Minelab Pro-Find 35 vs Minelab Pro-Find 15. Continue reading
