hunters have been asking for a waterproof QuickSilver model ever since the splashprof CZ-6
QuickSilver was introduced," said Fisher's Director of Consumer Sales, Fred Brust.
"So here it is: the CZ-20, a waterproof, target-I.D. machine that uses the same basic
circuitry as the CZ-6."
Submersible to 250 feet, the CZ-20
detects buried metal in salt water, fresh water, shallow water and on land. It has two
search modes: a silent-running, slow-motion, target-I.D. mode that ignores trash; and a
hot, wide-scan autotune mode for all-metal searching. Two bright, red LED's flash over the
target, varying in intensity according to signal strength.
Other features of the CZ-20 include no-motion pinpointing, faint-target
audio boost, Fourier Domain signal analysis for increased depth and accurate target
identification and a distinctive big-target alert. The CZ-20 also uses a three-tone
target-I.D. system: a low tone for iron; a mid tone for pull tabs, foil and most gold
rings; and a high tone for U.S. coins, silver rings and some gold rings.
Like all Fisher detectors, the CZ-20 is easy to operate. It features a
cushioned arm rest, soft foam grip and control housing that slips off the handle for
hipmounting. Four, 9-V batteries (instead of two) have doubled the CZ-20 battery life over
previous QuickSilver models.
