    MXT to F75 ???

    Thinking about going from a very good MXT to a F75, but am not sure about the reliability and performance of the F75 after reading some of the bad reports about the F75. (http://metaldetectorreviews.net/dete...fisherf75.html) What do you think?

    I'd say "stick with the MXT". If the F75 were to sell in the $600 range, it would be worth getting. As it is, it's way overpriced (IMHO). If you plan to prospect, stick with the MXT. A better alternative to the F75, and a 'step up' from the MXT would be the XTerra 70. ..Willy.

    What do you think?
    I think you posted in the wrong forum. J.W. Fisher makes underwater detectors. The F-75 is from Fisher Research Labs.

    I've had my F-75 for 9 months. I like it a lot. Fast, light, has WIDE ranges of adjustment and that is IMHO where folks are getting into trouble. If you have a situation where the sensitivity can't handle a setting over 45, then setting it at 90 will make the detector almost useless because of the falsing.

    I'm digging 7" nickels and 8" dimes and that makes my day. Overpriced at $934.15? Perhaps. I think they may have made some decisions on the side of lightness vs. Russian Durability (when in doubt, make it 2X heavier than it needs to be). Mine came with the dust/rain covers, an F-Point pinpointer, free shipping, the dealer also tossed in a coil cover and a Rattler headphone (which I really like). It has proved to be rugged enough (though I don't beat my electronic equipment of any kind up, generally) and in the summer I use it daily during lunch breals at a local park - which can mean some hot days in my car before & after. No ill effects. Haven't broken anything. It's still "hot" but controlable.

    Fisher just offered an upgrade to make the cases "environmentally sealed" and beef up the trigger and hand-grip; and something with the battery compartment to improve contact. Shows they are continuing to improve the design and listening to the users in the field.

    Can't say it is pretty, but the 11" Double-D coil seems to cover a good slice of ground to a good depth.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    AI agree with Willy the XTerra 70 or stay with the MXT.

    If you don't need a meter and you don't mind a heavier machine and you don't live in Canada--get the Sovereign GT.

    I have experience with the Fisher F70 with F75 coil. Again I say stay with the MXT!
