I am going to do something a little different than I have in the past and do an article on a metal detector before I actually do a review. Recently I took a trip to Ohio and the F22 went along with me to do some relic hunting. I had actually just got it a few days before and didn't have time to do anything but take it out of the box and put it together. Fortunately I did take the time to read the manual beforehand.

One of the first things that caught my attention with the F22 was the ability to turn the Iron audio volume down and even off. If you've done much relic hunting with heavy concentrations of iron you know you need to run your detector wide open and listening to all the iron becomes tiring and can take a toll on your hearing. I often find myself losing my concentration and if you try to discriminate out the iron you will find yourself getting a lot of clipped tones and generally the detector will run sluggish.

I am going to be very honest here and say I wasn't expecting a detector that the going price is around $229 to be capable of hunting in the heavy iron. I know any of the other detectors I've tried in that price range (and even some in higher price ranges) I haven't had much luck over the years in the heavy iron. Not putting them down but in the lower price range you can't really expect it to do everything and hunting in heavy iron isn't an easy task for any metal detector.
