    Why is the CZ3D so expensive?

    I've been considering purchasing a CZ3D before they are no longer produced...That day may come soon. But if it is older analog technology why does it have a $800 price tag? I have even checked sites from the US as well and they list it at the same price. What gives?

    CZ's have always been expensive to manufacture.

    So what is the CZ any different from any other detector? They still use the same kind of ciruit boards etc as other the other brands.

    What I'm saying is for a detector that has been on the market for close to 20 years being they only changed the name from CZ5 or 6 to the CZ 3D and if the "older technology" is obsolete then it shouldn't be really that expensive. I remember when they discontinued the CZ5, you could get it for about $500-$600. That was a few years ago, mind you. There is basically no difference between the CZ5 and CZ3D, so what justifies the price if the technology is that old.

    I would venture to say Fisher sets the price based on what the buyer is willing to pay.. why are cars over 25k....? They must have enough people buying them at that price to justiy the price...........

    Yes, but back then that was considered the new technology of the time and the CZ series was their Flagship detectors. The prices dropped after that. I spoke to a dealer recently and he told me that nobody buys the CZ 3D anymore and during a one year period he has only sold only sold 1 or 2 of them. He suspects the CZ3D will be discontinued soon. He also stated the Garrett AT Pro is so popular he can't keep them in stock...The 1270X is being discontinued. Fisher is probably making way for a new machine and want to focus on the F series, which unfortunately is probably inferior to the CZ series. Remember, how many analog detectors are on the market now with visual id? They are all digital which it seems like everyone nowadays want. Most would consider the CZ3D obsolete which is why sales are not high. Personally, I think Fisher should have improved the CZ series line rather than discontinue it.

    Older doesn't necessarily mean "cheaper"...You can get new Tube guitar Amplifiers these days and you pay a premium.Cheers.

    Newfie, if you don't think a CZ is worth the price, don't buy it. This is real simple.

    It may be older technology, but it works. As was stated above, some people are willing to pay the price tag. And that's what drives the value.

    How can one recommend a Fisher product, after purchasing a CZ-3D at full price + freight, assemble the unit and find it do NOT work.

    I don't think I've seen but 1 or 2 people that use the CZ-3D...I don't think it's a stellar seller.

    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    I think it's sad to see the direction Fisher went....The Los Banos Fishers were great. What do you get now? Noisy, flimsy, plastic crap that look and feel like toys.
