The Fisher F5 metal detector was introduced in 2007 and is still in production. The F5 is a 7.69 kHz VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, and relic detecting.

"With a combination of analog and digital controls, the F5 has one of the best user interfaces ever designed. Control knobs and touchpads are accessible with a single hand. Gain and Threshold knobs are strategically placed to easily “thumb” the controls up and down while analyzing a target, then easily return to the previous positions and it’s all visible in real-time. This high-tech detector with automated features is easy for beginners and has enough fine tuning control options to satisfy the professional." Source: Fisher 2014 catalog
