Not a cz-70

April 29, 2007
your right on robert, i did not want to tell anyone that i just spent a thousand dollars for this piece of junk. it is like my tejon if sensitivity was full on and inside of my pickup. wow. je process unuseble.i only hope that someone will buy this thing from me so i can buy an mxt. you know stable finds things with out all the noise. some say thats because its so sensitive. but hard to hear faint signals with all the noise.i should have gone with a local dealer so i could have try before buy. well we live and burn. another life lesson. if you want a deep machine that pulls good targets from iron buy a cibola and save the rest of your money for gas.

Hype

April 27, 2007
Chatters to much. very much hyped depth. 8-10 inches on coins really bad factory service. flimsy build . Cheap faceplate. Hard to believe that this was made by the same guy who made the MXT. The only detector i have had to send back in 22 years of detecting. and they say its working properly. This detector is total junk. try again fisher.

Total b.s

April 27, 2007
I cant believe we are talking about the same machine here. My f-75 was the complete opposite. Unstable and about 8 to 10 inches on a coin, not 15 but in all fairness I did use a ruler. Sent detector back to first texas. Took 2 weeks to return only for them to say it's working properly. I still could only use if sens was turn down to 10. and had no depth in FL soil. Worst detector I have owned in 22 years. Many others are having same problems. But for some reason you do not see this on the forums. If you are thinking of buying one please do yourself a favor and demo first.

This is the best single frequency detector I've ever used

April 18, 2007
I have used this detector for two month and it is my personal new number one detector.

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.
Depth:
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.

Summary:
- 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!

March 20, 2007
This detector is a winner. It is lightweight, well balanced, and easy to use. All menu items are straight to the point and easy to understand. Don't let this fool you though as this is a very powerful and exceptionally functional detector.

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.
