This is the best single frequency detector I've ever used
The 11" DD coil separates targets really well and covers a lot of ground. It is good in mineralized soil too.
The detector just needs 4AA batteries that last for over 40 hours. Be smart and buy a charger with 4 AA rechargeables for a few $$ here:
The F75 is very lightweight and fun to swing all day. The (recovery)speed and the processor speed is the fastest i have ever seen on a detector. That speed in conjunction with the target separation of the DD coil will get keepers out of the "hunted out" fields.
I buried a nickel at 10" in volley ball field soil that read 85 on the ground balance number (very high). The detector detected the nickel even with the coil 4 more inches of the ground. So 14" total for a US nickel is very impressive.
That was in the JE mode with sensitivity at about 80 (99 max.).
The JE mode is a high gain mode that should not be used where interference is present.
The lower gain DE mode at sensitivity settings of about 50 (99 max) was as deep as most detectors at full sensitivity settings.
The large VDI numbers on the display are easy to see and they can tell you the difference of the newer style pulltab and a nickel. (most detectors can't do that).
Ground balance this detector couldn't be easier, just push the trigger under the display forward and pump the coil up and down over the ground until the numbers don't change anymore. It is done in seconds.
If you just started with the F75 stay in the DE mode with sensitivity at 50 to 60 for the first hours until you get a feel for the detector.
If you set disc in DE mode lower than 5 or higher than 19 the detector could become noisy, because higher gain automaticly kicks in at these disc settings.
The depth in the two all metal modes (static and motion) is scary. The sensitivity in the all metal modes can be adjusted.
- Very lightweight
- Very deep
- Very low battery consumtion
- Very fast recovery speed
- Very fast signal processing
- Very good target separation
Because of all that "Very", i come home with more finds than before.

A sure winner!
The ability to accurately ID targets is phenominal and you will dig very little junk items.
The option to choose the number of tones is great and has an option that makes it easy to include nickels in your coin finds.
It has great depth that seems to defy the capabilities of it's light weight.
I think it will be a favorite detector of many treasure hunters and will perform the main task well. The main task is that of finding treasure. If it is there, you will find it with the F75.
