When Garrett metal detectors released released the “Ace” series of detectors, they set a new standard in affordable performance. Garrett has been in the business a long time and recognized a “niche” that needed to be filled…and fill it they did! Now, there’s a new release in the Ace lineup…the Ace 350.
With Fisher releasing the F75, CZ21, F70, F5, F4 and F2 in the period of around 2 years, it is evident they are NOT afraid of change! The “F series” of detectors has quickly developed a loyal following due to their combination of performance and price.
The “old” Fisher website looked nice, but lacked the things folks look for these days. I, personally, like to be able to dig around a site and find all sorts of content…the new Fisher site offers TONS of content! You’ll even see contributions from several Detectorstuff regulars.

I know this isn’t a metal detector…BUT it is COOL!
It is also the creation of Night Owl Optics, a sister company of Fisher and Teknetics, who are metal detector manufacturers…the metal detector manufacturer connection, and the sheer coolness of night vision is more than enough reason for me to write up a review on the iGen 20/20!
Who hasn’t dreamed of being able to see in the dark? It ranks right up there with breathing underwater and flying with a jetpack! The incredibly cool iGen 20/20 does indeed let you peer clearly into the darkness…not only that, but you can take photos of your nocturnal adventures as well!
Most of my readers may not realize I spent nearly 20 years in law enforcement prior to my current career. Being the resident PC nerd and gadget junkie, I was always involved in new technology grants and purchases. Years ago, I spent time learning how to operate a “Generation 1″ night vision scope. The thing felt like it weighed 30 pounds and had a big, bright green, CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) that you had to peer into. Battery life was abysmal and I spent hours doing “double takes” trying to figure out if you could really see anything with it that you couldn’t see without it! Man, oh man…has technology improved! Let’s check out the iGen 20/20!
Greg “scdigger” (www.scdigger.com) has been kind enough to allow me to post his Saving History videos on detectorstuff.com. They are a blast to watch and highly recommended to everyone interested in this wonderful hobby of metal detecting! Thanks “scdigger”! Here’s a Link
