They are new features for the basic F75, but unless I am wrong the F75+ is merely the black Fisher F75 Ltd2 with a black and gold rod instead. Change the rod, lower the price. Take away 5” coil and add digger and pinpointer instead. New transferable warranty and refurb options. There does not appear to be any actual changes in functionality however between this and the F75 Ltd 2.

Here is the blurb for what was new in the F75 Ltd2 (with DST) almost three years ago - as you can see these features existed in the F75 Ltd2 long before the F75+ appeared:

  • Ability to activate and deactivate DST Mode (Digital Shielding Technology) for the ultimate in EMI Suppression
  • FA (Fast Process) – Improved Target Separation
  • Three new levels of FeTone®: Iron Audio Off, Low or Medium (complements existing “High” setting)
  • Adjustable Audio Pitch now in the Discrimination Mode
  • Embedded Serial Number – Serialization now stored electronically

I'd like to add one thing, but it will take several facts.

Since the first inception of the original F75 I had one

Found a lot of good finds, but was always looking for something better

Sold the F75 and bought something I thought might be better, didn't work out

Bought another F75, hunted a good while longer until I found another machine, then sold to buy a different machine.

Hunted a while and knew the F75 was what I need, so bought another F75.

On and on for some 5+ more years.  I can say I've owned at least 5 different F75's including the F75 LTD.  That's about $5k, need to say more.......

It's not a do all machine, but............

Is it as you stated?

Unless anyone can find out anything different it does appear First Texas has reissued the F75 LTD2 (with DST) as the F75+ at a lower price point. The F75 was introduced in 2007 and there have been quite a few variants in the last 10 years with the last major revision in 2014.

From the Fisher Facebook page:

"This is a value based promotion. You are correct it is not new technology just a great proven F75 model with lots of extras at an amazing price. We are working on new products and technology should have some of the new stuff out in 2018."

Here is the "sell sheet" for the F75+ (2017/2018)....

The F75+ is now listed on the Fisher website but no Owner's Manual yet.

I got my f-75 with DST in September it cost $550 with no extras. Although I have no complaints, I wish I could have had a chance to get the f-75+ package at only $100 more.

I see the Fisher Facebook page has the pinpointers now shipping the week of Jan 22nd so maybe the detectors will ship to dealers then also? I would guess the delays revolve around the move to the new First Texas facility.

      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.

      (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?
