No real information yet but this was just posted to the Fisher Facebook page. The Fisher F75+ is on the way!

The Fisher F75 is the company's flagship model, and so I assume this is an update with some sort of additional features, otherwise we would be looking at a different model name. Time will tell.

The marketing wars escalate.  Isn't it time for Nokta/Makro to come up with something new?  ("Time" on their schedule is about once a year, shorter than its competition.)  Given how long it's been since First Texas came out with something new at the high end, I hope it's more than a couple tweeks.  I have a feeling (just based upon my confidence in FT) that it will be.

I was talking to Felix last week about the repair of my CZ 21, I asked him if they were going to offer the upgrade again to the F75. In an almost sorta kinda commitment he said to look on the web page on or about today it would probably happen. I have not seen the upgrade today on the webpage, maybe this is what he meant.

I mentioned this on Tom's site too, but thinking what a + could add.  I'm guessing along the lines of something I'd like on the F75.   I'd like a variable tone break option in the single and two tone options where I get to select the pitch of the upper tone.   You can select the pitch today but I'd want it to carry over to any variable tone break option too.

That would be useful.   

Most of the time I run the F75 in JE mode with the Delta Pitch audio selection with max disc with the Foil, Nickel and first Tab segments notched in.   Usually running a sensitivity setting of 0, sometimes as high as 25.   Sweet.  

A Variable tone break would let me dip my foil notch down to about 12 or 13.   That would be helpful to me.   I could do the same thing with the disc setting but I like the Disc setting on max and use the notches.   That way if I need to dip backward into the zinc range a little I can without having to bring in the whole range.

Anyway, just talking in my hat as I have no more info than anyone else.

How about a 4"x18" DD coil.   Now that would be a sweet heart combination on a F75.

Kind of hard to improve upon the F75 DST models without going to totally new tech.   They are just solid performers.

Tone break would be big. Right now anyone using two tone ferrous is stuck with a factory break point that is too high, forcing some to use mono tone with a lower disc setting as a work around. I would like to see notching / discrimination run all the way to high coin also, but that’s a very minor thing compared to the tone break.

Makung it where DST can really be disabled, especially while in all metal mode, would be good. In theory you can shut DST off but it does not seem to get a person back to where pre-DST machines were as far as all metal performance.

I will admit to being a little disappointed. I was looking for the big next generation announcement. Instead, it looks like they are trying to breath new life into old models as a way to bridge the gap between now and whenever the new generation arrives. Which in turn makes me think we have a long wait yet before that happens. I hope I am wrong. In the meantime we have this to find out more about at least.

Maybe they added wireless headphone capability. That’s an easy upgrade without actually having to improve on performance.

Do they mean a gold coloured F75 or an F75 Gold operating on 71 kHz :biggrin:

So looks like maybe no Mosca for a while.

But this interests me a lot more:

Yeah, First Texas is moving forward on a new PI project. It makes me wonder if the CZX/Mosca stalled out and they needed a new direction? I don’t know but the subject has been discussed on two prior threads here:

June 13, 2017 Alexandre Tartar Joins First Texas

June 14, 2017 Something New In The World Of PI Detectors?

Back to the F75+ and the release of one item of information at a time. Apparently First Texas will introduce a transferable warranty along with the Plus models. Definitely about time - warranties should cover the product for the warranty period regardless of whether it changes hands. First Texas was one of the last holdouts when it comes to the warranty only applying to the original owner. No more word on what the det3ctors itself does that is actually new however.

      I have a feeling it FT is about to rock the detector world, they have been too quiet for too long. They have some of if not the best detector engineers in the world, they have lowered prices on the F75/T2 platform to a level that is bringing them into the mid-level machine price range, even though they they are still at the top performance wise. FT is behind in the all terrain business but that wont last long and I think you will see a repackaged waterproof F75/T2 machine very soon and a true game changer shortly there after. I had an Equinox on pre-order but other than being waterproof (which I really don't need), my F75 LTD SE has more depth and is plenty fast for my hunting, thus I canceled my order. I am going to wait and see what FT has up their sleeve, until then I will keep going behind the latest and greatest machines and dig what they can't hear.

      An acquaintance has asked if I'd help him find some shotguns he buried several years ago.  They are wrapped in oilcloths, sealed in PVC pipes (~3 in = 7.5 cm diameter) and buried about 20 inches (half meter) deep according to him.  He says he can show me the approximate location within about 10 m.  If all this is accurate it seems like an easy task....  Then again, he also said someone in his family (without him being present) tried to find them with a detector and couldn't.  That could be due to a lot of reasons as I'm sure you are already thinking, but my concern is that they may be buried more deeply than he remembers.
      Which of the following would be your first choice?
      1) TDI/SPP with 12 in round mono and 16 V battery pack.
      2) X-Terra 705 w/15 in Coiltek 3kHz.
      3) Gold Bug Pro (19 kHz) w/15 in Nel Attack.
      4) F75 black (13 kHz) w/11x7 in^2 coil operating in cache process.
      Assuming he has the time and patience I'm going to have all four with me to do a comparison, but I'd like to start with the one that gives me the best chance.  Your advice is appreciated.

      Is anyone going to get the new Fisher F75 Plus? They sure put together a nice kit at a good price.  thanks  Bill

      (I moved the conversation over here since it was going off-topic.)
      In the above thread, relicmeister mentions that he put the Teknetics Omega ("frat brothers") 5in X 10in DD coil on his F75 and it worked fine.  I expressed surprise and a motivation to try that out myself.  I can now confirm that my Fisher Gold Bug 5"x10" DD works on my F75.  I'm going to investigate further.  I have both 5" round DD and 7"x11" DD for both these detectors.  I'm curious to see if I can find any differences when mounted on the F75.  Different ground balance numbers?  Different TiD values?  Different sensitivity (depth)?  I also have an inductance meter so I'll make some measurements of the coils on the bench and see how different that important characteristic is.  This might shed some light on why to swap works.  Stay tuned.

      First Texas has reinstated their F75 upgrade program http://www.fisherlab.com/hobby/upgrade.htm
      I have an older LTD model, any reason not to upgrade?
