Fisher 1266 X, Fisher F75, Garrett ProPointer
« on: June 17, 2009, 09:19:24 am »
Go Up Go Down

After months of comparing detectors I finally picked an F75 after using my buddy's a few weeks ago.

We hunted a trashy, foil infested, pulltab, screw and bottle cap park that has been pounded hard for the last 30 or so years.

Now my finds really don't sound so great if taken out of context, but plucking over 5.00 in clad and one silver dime in around 2 hours out of the middle of all that trash made a believer in the F75 out of me.

I only had an hour or so the night before to read about setting it up, and even not set up the way I would now after reading a lot more, it still worked great.

I finally found a good deal on a slightly used one on Ebay and got it Monday afternoon. After assembling it I took it out to my back yard to see how it would do under the overhead service and all of the junk under the surface.

I've hit my yard hard with my 1266, but could only use my 3" coil due to EMI from the overhead electrical service. I found lots of clad that way,, but knew I couldn't reach the silver that I knew was there. With any larger coil the detector was basically unusable... Until I got the F75 that is.

 To make a long story short (gotta get back to work) the first coin I dug with the F75 was a 1934 Washington quarter in beautiful shape. Next to come out was 3 wheats and 2 memorials, and all were surrounded by, next to, or under rusted nails, aluminum siding scrap, pulltabs and bottle caps. I love this machine.

Mike,

What set up were you using? And have you changed set ups now that you've had it awhile?

ACE 250

I am interested in getting a Fisher F75. I know with all machines there is a learning period but do you feel this machine is complicated and lots of buttons to push to use? I have a Garrett ACE 250 that is fantastic but would like to move up to a better machine but one that is still easy and fun to use.  Appreciate your feed back, Frenchfry Detecting

I have both the Ace 250 and the Fisher F75.
The best thing to do with the F75, especially in the beginning, is just turn it on and leave all setting as default.  Run this way for a few outings, then you can play with the settings.  No problem after using the Ace.

I got mine here in Spain, and so far its working just right.

I have tried looking near a power line, and from the big big ones, no problem, but near the smaller ones it has a lot of noise. I just move 50 yards away and no problem.

I?m still learning the machine, and I would love if anybody would tell me how it works on the beach, both wet and dry sand.

good hunting to all
