Ask a question about this product

How might the Fisher F22 perform on a beach at the edge of salt water?
Question by: Jack on Mar 8, 2016, 7:03 PM Link
The Fisher F22 is a great model, however it lacks a manual ground balance, or a "beach mode," so it would not be suggested to take it into the surf; you may encounter quite a bit of "chatter" and false readings.
Answer by: metal detector reviews on Feb 2, 2018, 2:26 PM
In what country is the Fisher F22 manufactured?
Question by: Bob Michaels on Feb 11, 2018, 4:10 PM Link
The Fisher F22 is made in the USA
Answer by: on Feb 20, 2018, 3:23 PM
Is the entire detector waterproof?
Question by: Sarah Altinterim on Feb 22, 2018, 12:51 PM Link
No. The search coil is waterproof, but the control box is not. You can submerge the detector as deep as you feel comfortable knowing that if it becomes submerged you may be out of a detector.

What is the battery supply
Question by: Tom Murphy on Jul 24, 2019, 4:21 PM Link
This unit runs on 2 AA batteries.

whats the maximum depth for coin and overall?
Question by: vyankatesh bakale on Sep 17, 2018, 8:50 AM Link
This detector has a maximum depth capability of approximately 10-12 inches, depending on ground conditions as well as the size and composition of the target.
Answer by: on Sep 19, 2018, 2:54 PM
What would recommend for something at around $200-$300 for beach use etc?
Question by: Carl on May 3, 2018, 3:59 PM Link
The Fisher F22 would be a great option for dry-sand, but if you plan on detecting over any wet salt-water saturated sand, I would consider a system with better ground balance.
Answer by: on May 7, 2018, 11:07 AM
We bought this house a few months ago. We cleaned up a lot of trash outside. I see bottle caps. Will this discriminate pull tabs and bottle caps and still hit coins and jewelry? TNX. Brian
Question by: Brian Smith on Nov 13, 2018, 10:35 AM Link
For an entry level detector, the F22 does a pretty good job of allowing you to discriminate out targets. Keep in mind that with any detector, rejecting some bad targets might also remove some of the good ones; less is more in terms of discrimination.
Answer by: on Nov 13, 2018, 10:39 AM
If dropped briefly in water can the F22 box stay dry with the seals? Also need to know if Whites has done anything to address the button/PP issues?
Question by: Shawna on Apr 24, 2019, 5:18 AM Link
The F22 is NOT waterproof, so even a quick drop into water could flood the control box very quickly- there is no way to repair water damage so if you're considering this model to be used near water, you may want to consider a fully submersible detector. Fisher makes this model, not White's, and I'm not familiar with the Pin point issue you're mentioning.
Answer by: on Apr 25, 2019, 12:05 PM
Is this detector really weatherproof? I wanna know because i dont want to be caught in the rain and not knowing 4 sure
Question by: Cody on Dec 20, 2019, 9:08 AM Link
Yes, this model is weatherproof, as mentioned in the description.

Question by: David on Dec 16, 2018, 2:33 PM Link

How long is the battery life
Question by: John Bilton on Jan 9, 2019, 9:08 AM Link
About 20 hours or so.
Answer by: on Jan 14, 2019, 11:15 AM
Does the Fisher F-22 have a setting to let you know How deep the target is?
Question by: Don on Feb 8, 2017, 6:05 PM Link
Yes, the Fisher F-22 does have a depth reading. It is just to the left of the VDI numbers.
