Fisher F75 Key Features

VLF Technology

Makes an electromagnetic field that applies a continuous sinusoidal wave directed to the ground.

DD Coil

The optimal shape for a search coil that support high productivity and efficiency on various locations; it is especially good at mineralized soils.

Pinpoint

Saves the detectorist from waste of time when digging things out, and saves the target from being damaged.

Multi Tone Technology

Makes the search more productive by making the audio signals more variable and recognizable depending on the type of target.

Manual Ground Balance

Easy to use for both beginner and experienced metal detectorists, providing increased depth of reach on various grounds.

Five Years Warranty

Five years warranty is a huge deal, considering that few other brands are brave enough to guarantee such performance. This indicates the exceptional quality of this metal detector.

Fisher F75 Overview

The Fisher F75 is a metals detector of a professional level, boasting really efficient design and stunning stable workflow. Despite the fact of being professional and stuffed with lots of settings and variations, the machine is very lightweight, weighting only 1,6 kgs, which is a very small weight for a tool. This weight is further enhanced with a perfect balancing. As a result, most people will be able to work with this machine for the whole day, without becoming tired very fast.

A separate note should be made about its armrest which is easily adjusted and its position can be changed on the shaft. The whole construction of the shaft is fixed in place with locking collars. Some detectorists are not amused with this system because it requires them to manually turn the collars back and forth, but as a result, we get a well-fastened structure that does not fall apart from a casual touch.

The machine uses rechargeable AA batteries for operation, and with high quality ones, it enables the search for 30-40 hours without changing the accumulators. The only important thing to keep in mind is, as soon as the indicator of the accumulator charge drops, the piece of equipment stops working. So if you have already used your accumulators for some time, carry a set of new ones with you.

One of the really cool features of this metal detecting equipment is the ability to save your indications on the display. If you are searching on one huge location and cannot cover it in one session, you just turn the equipment off and the settings you have chosen for this specific locations won’t disappear, as they do on other detectors.

New Features

As the majority of metals detectors in the world, the Fisher F75 works on VLF, which is a universal frequency of 13 khz. While this is nothing new, the beauty of this very model is that together with an awesome range of settings, the equipment allows to use this one frequency to its maximum.

Trigger switch is a setting you will use often, and it is pretty handy. The concept is if you push it forward, you will switch on the ground balance mode, if you pull it back, the pinpoint mode will be turned on. This is a cool solution, because you can do this literally with one finger without moving your hand, and without pushing the buttons on the control panel.

The display is nothing innovative, but, as it has already been said, the manufacturers at last allowed the user to save the settings. Sometimes settings are such a hassle, especially on complicated soils, and losing them if you turn the machine off or the batteries go low just pisses off. With Fisher F75, this is not going to happen.

However, one of the most important and the coolest features of this metals detector is its incredible depth of search; it remains sensitive and enables the user to dig out some incredible finds on locations that other machines show as empty.

Search Modes

Dynamic All Metal

Zero discrimination mode for active movement of the metal detector - or for targets that are potentially in movement. Allows the user to see all types of potential targets.

Static All Metal

This mode requires less swinging and more scanning of each spot by the metal detector. However, Static All Metal means enhanced depth of reach.

Discrimination

This mode enables the user to discriminate against this or that type of metal to spot certain types of targets only.

All Features

Here are all features you can enjoy when working with Fisher F75:

As you see, there is a bunch of options for setting the most perfect search mode in each particular case. Obviously, newbies might get some headache with this aspect, but as soon as you master the art of setting the tool, its sensitivity and depth of reach will bring you some really good stuff.

Discrimination Modes

Instead of search modes, Fisher F75 offers discrimination modes:

The difficulty of working with Fisher F75 lies in this feature of offering discrimination regimes instead of search regimes. Newbies are rarely aware what they are expected to discriminate on what location.

The Kit

The standard Fisher F75 kit includes:

Conclusion

Fisher F75 is one of the best metals detectors on the market today in the “expert level” sector. It is pretty universal, but perfect for coins and jewelry. Its stunning accuracy and high-quality performance remain stable even on considerable depth of search. Overall, this is one of the top models among the Fisher series of metals detectors, and experienced treasure hunters all over the world hold it as one of the best choices one can make when buying a metals detector.
