Editor's Notes

February 07, 2019:

Fisher makes some of the best metal detectors in the business, and in truth, very few of their units would be considered a poor choice. That certainly doesn't mean that certain models excel far above the rest. We made sure our list included both, top of the line units, as well as budget-friendly options for those just starting out with the hobby. We also added a few submersible models for the divers out there.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
