I am a Fisher dealer (as well as White's) and use many of the products. The
CZ6 is great for some things like coins and gold and irons. Our meteorite
experience occurred when a good friend just had to have the CZ6. Our
philosophy is give operators what they want. If they do not believe in it,
it becomes a closet model. So he took delivery at Gold Basin. It was sooo
So bad that Marvin said if he walk around randomly digging holes he would
just as good a chance of finding a one. It just discriminates them out. Sad
but true because for less money a Gold Bug II will find just about anything.

Can anyone comment on the suitability (or lack of it) of the Fisher
M-Scope Model CZ-6 for hunting meteorites specifically? This particular
one has a nine-inch coil. As the ground is frozen solid, I can't test it
burying a Sikhote-Alin in my front yard! Although it does a fine job of
finding all the nails in my kitchen floor, this is not a very
test. It also picks up a 100-gram H5 at about 18 inches away (no dirt,
just air space). It seems to like the gromets in my tennis shoes, too.
More unsophisticated tests, and I don't know any sophisticated tests.
Anybody familiar with this model? Is it worthwhile buying this used
one (which is what I am contemplating here)?
