Default Land Ranger Pro, Time Ranger, or Fisher F22

Hoping I can get some advice on a first detector purchase.

I've promised my wife to stay within a decent budget, and these three models fall within the price point I'm aiming for ($200-$230), also seeming from the videos and opinions I've read to offer a lot of bang for the buck.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any side by side comparisons on them, so I'm asking for your help in deciding which would be the best of the three. Imbretired, and I plan on using it while walking the trails, farm fields and river banks in my area, to make my treks more interesting. I will probably not upgrade (unless I stumble upon some extremely lost vikings' plunder in Ohio!), so I didn't want to use the label "beginner detector," so quality is a big issue.

If anyone feels I left out a contender, please weigh in!

Thanks for your opinions!

If you are pretty confident you are going to stick with it you will want to upgrade after those. If you can spring a little more it would help keep that happening for longer. Good luck and welcome to the hobby. A used at pro might be an option.
