Fisher F44 Metal Detector – Go Ahead and Detect in The Rain!

If you follow my blog then you know that I love Fisher Metal Detectors. I started out with a Fisher F2 and then upgraded to the Fisher F5 and then to the Eurotek Pro.

My experiences and reviews of those machines can be found on past blogs with a little searching if you’re interested in my thoughts on those… F44

But,  enough about those machines, the new Fisher F44 is here, and it’s weather proof, meaning that you can detect in the rain with it if you want to!  No more having to go home if it happens to rain on  your hunt! Detecting in creeks is worry free should you drop your detector in the water, because, It’s Weather-Proof! Fisher Describes the Features as:

  • 5 Year Limited Warranty
  • Static Pinpoint
  • Iron Identifier Icon
  • 5 Modes of Operation:
    • Coin

An Old Ring

You know that old saying “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it?”  I had forgotten about that saying when I was at the park last weekend.

This was the same park I had found the gold West Point class ring earlier this year, a stainless steel ring that was missing a stone,  and a junker “Friends” ring a couple years back but all I was finding last weekend was clad.

After about 30 minutes of diggin modern coins, I was getting frustrated and said “Man, I just want to find an old ring or something.”

I guess I should have remembered the ole “careful what you wish for saying” because that’s exactly what I found, an “old ring.”


Man this has to be one of the ugliest rings I have ever seen, and certainly the ugliest one I’ve ever dug!

I did have two other rings that I found while detecting to show you, but I seem to have misplaced them… maybe someone with a metal detector could help me find them? LOL

They’re around here somewhere.  I’ll show ’em to you when I find them, again! :P
