    Fisher F2 Availability

    According to Andy's website www.fisherf75.com the F2 is available, and he has some nice photos of the new detector from Fisher. I have not seen it advertised, nor do I see it on the official Fisher website. From what I can see it looks like we are going to get quite a package for only $199?? HH, as usual, my meter always says I'm lessthanzero

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    Back in August this year Fisher told me I could get a CZ21 for $1,149.00 with the 10" coil. Nothing was said about it not being out yet nor it would be shipped when it did come out. It's now Nov. and no one has seen it yet........

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    I haven't purchased a Fisher since 1983.

    Today I just can't get into that brand. To be candid that 'fishbone" coil gives me the creeps.

    I don't know why but it just doesn't appeal to me

    Badger, the fishbone coil yells China to me. Wonder if I'd get lead poisoning even looking at it. Another detector comes to mind that has Cobra fangs decals. It could be a good detector, I am just turned off by the customer service and repair now days. I still like my CZ20 and just don't like its saltwater mode being on all the time with no way to turn it off for more gold chains like the Excal and Tiger finds.

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    Dont know about lead poision but it sure gets the silver that othere have missed

    From a trip to upstate NY this October. Not shown are 5 silver rings, a 1847 large cent, over 40 wheat pennies and $40+ in clad and I live in FL so I just went into a firemans field and park & hunted. I might add that there is a very active detecting club in the area and I was told they have been there many times
    I also own several explorers with all the coils but I will tell you that when you can use the F-75 it will out hunt them all

    I talked with Fishers customer service yesterday. They said they have just begun
    shipping them out to dealers. As of this time, Kellyco hasn't recieved theirs yet. Give them time.

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    Thanks Robert for that info. Andy, of the website www.fisherf75.com, stated that he drove to El Paso and purchased his F2 right from Fisher for $199. How is that possible? Could we all do that if we wanted? Just asking.......

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    $199.00 is the price being asked plus you get an extra coil 4" for trashy areas.
    This is Fishers answer to the Garrett Ace 250 that took so much business away.
    It seems it was a GOOD answer from what I can tell.
    But I may skip it and just get the F4 like I orignially intended.

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    Robert, sounds like a good plan. From what I can see and read, the F4 is a decent machine for the money. However, I have become very leery with regard to Fisher's lately. I am concerned with how much of their product line is made in ROC Taiwan. I really like the Minelab X-Terra series, and am saving for the X-70. Good luck to you, I'm still trying to get my meter to read lessthanzero.

    Just a quick first impression from viewing the unit from another website is that it looks really cheaply made...perhaps i am wrong though

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    The price being so low makes me wonder, how did they cut the cost so much, we all know what coils cost, rods, and repairs, I DUNNO, just wait and see i guess, they made in China and gotta be shipped here, and still low cost, Hmmmmm

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    What would help if everyone who post here or even reads the posts, write to Fisher to let them know how they feel. If they realize there are eough people out there who feels as we do they may have second thoughts. Personally, If I EVER saw a machine that said "Made In China," I wouldn't buy it. I am SOooo tired of seeing crap being pawned off on America as quality product.

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    I do find it funny that you seem to think that everything made in China is crap and that you wouldn't buy it. You would be surprised that almost all machines are made with parts and electronic components coming from Asia. Made in America only means that it was assembled here, but the parts can come from anywhere. What makes a real difference is the garanty the company puts behind it's product. If you have to ship your detector halfway around the world to get service, that's a real problem.

    Re: Fisher F2 Availability

    From what I have been able to find through research is that only American or Australian companies have provided research and development of metal detectors. They also provided the manufacturing facilities, quality control and skilled workers to make them here or in the land down under. It seems that some companies have decided to move some of their product lines to Taiwan or China (both the same to me). While I realize that we all have electronic products in our houses that were made off-shore, but these are the companies that have provided R&D and are known for their expertise for these particular products. To my knowledge metal detectors, and their electronics, are not unique to China's R&D process, thus giving the argument that why would we accept a Chinese detector built under any name? I recently got a Fisher and noticed that it was "assembled in Taiwan", sent it back for a Minelab, made in Australia and immediately noticed the difference in quality. I am still interested in Fisher, and someday would like to have the F75. Oh well, just my 2 scents worth..........HH, lessthanzero
