F75 is my favorite still.

Found all of these with my F75. Site had large power lines and carpets of nails but the F75 handled both admirably.

I have two of um. Still finding plenty. Nice finds barrylyndon!!! hhricknmi
 
The Spanish silver is an excellent fin. Did it ring up in the 70's ?
 
I have both an F75 and The Legend. Need to take the former out again…….
 
The F 75 was my main swing for 15 or more years and like Ronstar, I need to dust mine off and give it a run. I had one of the first run F 75 camo versions and that one in my opinion was the best F 75. Sparky, but deeper then the later "dumbed down" versions. And deeper by a fair amount. Those F 75's do love silver, really, really love it. HH jim tn
 
Hi F75 users I just got a good deal off the big board , Like new F75 ,with pinpointer , I bid $189.00 and got it. Forget about 16.00 shipping and tax, but still got it for 218.00 . I think it was a good deal. It has the DST and boost mode. one coil but that is ok.
Mine has the DST and Boost Mode. It goes deep and hits the silver. HH

I needed the dumb down version.
 
I needed the dumb down version.
Ha, I perhaps used some bad terminology. It really wasn't dumbed down from a user standpoint, they tried to make it less susceptible to emi which made it somewhat sparky and chattery. I and some others didn't have a problem with it being sparky, but others did. By adding dst it (maybe) was less affected by emi, but it took a pretty good hit in depth performance and seemingly was a little less sensitive. I know a good percentage of hunters wanted to wrap the F 75 around a tree and gave up on it. That's too bad, as once one learned its language it really was a terrific detector. HH jim tn
 
I have both the Camo F75 and the DST F75. Never want to use the Camo version anymore except for the all metal mode. DST is much more stable and I don't notice any change in depth while in disc mode. Maybe because I can crank it up. The non DST F75 wouldn't have been able to hunt where I found the relics in this post without giving me a headache even at lower sensitivity.

My first real metal detector was the Teknetics Omega 8000. It's a great machine, but it struggles with EMI mightily. I just thought it was normal so that when I switched to the F75 I was kind of used to some kind of chatter. I think that's why I didn't wrap mine around a tree :)

I think everyone's tolerance level for sparky/chattery is different. As for the DST versions, I had two after the Camo one and either could hit a certain depth deep dime in my test garden that my Camo one could with pretty good audio. Glad your experiences with the DST F 75 are positive. Mine are as well, just different on the depth aspect. HH jim tn
 
either could hit
Should be couldn't hit. I still have a F 75 LTD DST model and will probably have one in my arsenal until my hunting days are over. I no longer have an Omega, but had three. Not a depth demon, but truly was a medium depth silver slayer. Take care! HH jim tn
 
Jim , i think on the new F75 you can trun off the DST if in a low chattery location. That should make it like the old ones. I may of read that wrong, but i think you can turn it off.
 
I may of read that wrong, but i think you can turn it off.
You are right, it can be turned on and off. I hunted with it off all the time as when off it was a inch or so deeper then when on. Not sure how effective DST was over all, though. HH jim tn
 
Hunting with DST "OFF" does get a little more depth as jim tn stated, but even when it's turned off it's still a bit compromised compared to the early F75's that did not have DST. Many of the early machines were sent in for the "Boost" upgrade and were returned somewhat degraded because of the "DST" that was in the software upgrade. That being said,the"newer" F75's are still great machines that are very capable of finding targets.
