1280x, worth every dime.... Review by Steve Phelps
I have had my Fisher 1280 X for at least 10 years, WHAT A WORKHORSE!!! Powerful, sensitive, lightweight in the water. Over the years, I have had the battery pack holder replaced once, and the battery lead replaced 4 times, less than $30 bucks total for these simple repairs. One word of caution: If you run the sensitivity too high, it chatters a lot. Also back off on the discrimination, it ignores 100% pull tabs, gold rings, too. Never had issues with the waterproofing of the unit, should replace the battery door gasket regularly, too.

Review Review by Dennis Canning
Took it to Asia and Indian ocean on some ship wreaks. All I can say is flawless at 136 - 175 feet under water with no problem. Good finds and good detector. (Posted on March 11, 2017)

Good on ground and water!! Review by Sam S
Great tool! I bought one in 1980 and it has not changed on the inside. Still finds treasure. Not pretty now, but who cares? (Posted on August 22, 2015)

Wow, how cool Review by S. Racz
Underwater metal detecting with the Fisher 1280 is so cool. Once the head set fills with water, you don't even know you have them on when diving. (Posted on October 15, 2012)

Customer Service! Review by Graham
With a marine rescue group and we use it for equipment / evidence recovery. We have a few of the units, the last one flooded directly out of the box. I suspect it could possibly have been damaged with shipment. Customer service took care of it without any delay or excuse. Got us back in service in a few days. The 1280-X works great and fits our requirements. (Posted on October 13, 2012)
