Fisher F75 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 4, 2008):
I started metal detecting back in the early '70's when I bought a metal detector from an ad in the back of Popular Mechanics magazine. Needless to say, it was a piece of junk! Since then I have owned many different models of detectors. Last summer, a friend advised me that what I needed now was a new Fisher F75. We metal detect in the Mackinaw City, St. Ignace areas of northern Michigan for relics from the "fur trade era." The Fisher F75 has turned out to be the best detector for relics that I have used to date. It's a killer on small rings, religious metals, and tinkling cones. From the start, it was very simple to set up and use. It took me a few times out to get used to the different sounds for the type of metal detected, but once I did I never looked back! It picks up smaller objects much deeper than other detectors I had been using, and I have a stock of several of the best metal detectors on the market today. So this statement comes from both years of experience and personal opinion. This has been great for all those "hunted out" areas that every one else seems to pass up.
Just take it slow and easy and listen for those slight sounds, and make sure you have a shovel at hand. Those small .22 long rifle lead are a pain, but at least it's not bottle caps. If you want one of the best American made metal detectors today, the Fisher F75 is the way to go. I'd rate it a 9.5 out of 10.
