When looking for a modern metal detector to find coins, jewelry and relics, look to the Fisher F5. Advanced display features and ground tracking. Be sure to read our Guide Comparing the Fisher F4, F5 and F70 metal detectors.
The Fisher F5 is a great model to choose for coin, relic and beach hunting. This detector combines both analog and digital technologies. For the beach and relic hunter this model includes a high resolution manual ground balance adjustment. Now you can precisely tune this model for your exact ground conditions.
This detector can attest that one man's waste is another man's treasure. The variable tone pinpoint system distinguishes between different metals, like nails, pennies, quarters and bottle caps for a more accurate target identification to maximize your digging efforts. The F5 includes a manual ground balancing option to cancel unwanted signals that usually come from natural ground minerals.
The display on the Fisher F5 includes a numeric target identification readout that goes from 0-99. A frequency shift adjustment is included. This will allow you to hunt near high power lines or other treasure hunters that have the same model. This unit includes both audio and visual target identification. A target identification confidence bar graph helps you sort out your targets more precisely. A one touch notch control and a pinpoint control are standard on this model. You can even adjust the audio pitch on the F5. Perfect for those that have hearing loss at certain frequencies. This model allows you to manually adjust the audio threshold for your personal style of treasure hunting. Finally this model includes continuous ground mineralization phase readout.
|Leasable with Katapult||Yes|
|Approximate Weight |
The approximate weight of the detector when fully assembled.
|Audio Identification |
Circuitry producing different audio tones for each target’s conductivity range, i.e., low tone for nickel, high tone for coins.
|Battery Requirements |
The type and amount of batteries used to operate the detector.
|2 - 9 Volt|
|Battery Indicator |
An indicator to show the user how much battery life is left.
|Built-In Flashlight |
An on-board flashlight.
|Search Coil Size |
The size and dimensions of the search coil
|10" Search Coil|
The country where the detector is made
|Ground Balance |
A feature available on many detectors that allows the device to filter out signals from minerals in the ground, while accepting signals from actual targets.
|Manual or Auto Ground Balance|
|Headphone Jack Size |
The size of the headphone jack
|Holster Included |
Holsters are typically included with Pin Pointers
|Includes Bonus Items |
Bonus items are shown pictured with the device on the product page are included with this product
The overall length of the model when fully assembled
|Operating Mode |
Operating modes would include, but are not limited to, discriminate mode and all-metal mode
|All Metal and Discriminate|
|Operating Frequency |
The frequency at which the detector operates.
|Circuitry Type |
The type of circuitry the detector uses. Typically, you will see VLF (Very Low Frequency) detectors, and PI (Pulse Induction) detectors.
|Search Coil Shape||Elliptical|
|Search Coil Type |
The type of search coil- Most commonly concentric, DD (also known as wide-scan), and Mono (available for some PI detectors).
|Sensitivity Adjustment |
This adjustment affects how sensitive the detector is to targets, and ultimately how deep they will be able to be detected.
|Vibrating Alert |
A vibration feature that allows users to feel targets being detected.
|Visual Identification |
A visual target ID that allows the user to determine the composition of the target being detected before digging. Typically, a visual target ID is a numerical display based off the conductivity of the target being detected.
The amount of time the manufacturer will cover any broken parts or malfunctioning electronics.
|Water Resistance |
The degree to which the detector is resistant to water. Weatherproof implies that the detector is resistant to splashing and rain. Waterproof implies the detector is fully submerisble. (All models will offer waterproof search coils.)
