I suspect any/most Fisher and Tek. detectors now getting sold are from First Texas web site. I know their main business for a long time has been making night vision goggles for the Military. Not sure about anything else along those lines. I still have a small numbers device that I purchased some three or more decades ago with made by First Texas Ind. on it and it is still going strong. The T 2, F 75 platform is still a great platform, but with the next generation of detectors now going strong and being bought by the next generation of detectorists, probably not as viable as they once were. At this point in my life, I'll never have another detector that I found as much silver and jewelry with as I did with a F 75. I was really in hopes that they would come up with something new and great. HH Jim Tn
I would like just to hear that they are still working on new tech , and will release something in the near future….. anything……. Nokta Detectors and Minelab detectors have spoiled me with how they keep a personal presence with their customers ( end users ) !! Us !! Come on First Texas ! Anything, anything???I have a F5 that I love. Great user interface and was my first real detector. I don't think David Johnson is still at First Texas. I heard he retired and has health issues. Carl Moreland from Whites I think was hired a few years back but he recently posted he works on the industrial side of the house and not allowed to work the metal detecting side of the house. He seemed disappointed as he said he had some new ideas.
Not holding out hope for anything new from First Texas.

I heard he's gone.Does anyone know if Mike Scott is still with Fisher/ First Texas ?? He was one of their Reps several years ago. He would post on occasion on various forums. Would be nice to get some straight forward info from FT on their future in metal detectors if any??
