The F70, one amazing chamelion of a detector! Review by Digger27

Lets say you are in the market for a new vehicle after driving some very serviceable but lower end cars for most of your life and now you feel you want...no deserve, a taste of the good stuff at this stage of your life.
Comfort, performance and reliability are what you are looking for and this is the ultimate goal, but you still don't have the funds to aim for the extreme top end with every feature known to man.
What to do.
Simple...still look at those same top end models but just cut out a few of the features that are nice but not really needed like maybe all leather seats, extra high performance packages and other such amenities to still make you proud, elated and satisfied with your purchase and enable you to get into that very nice ride but at a price that you can be happy with.

In the detector world and specifically in the great Fisher line the F70 is exactly that type of product.

If you have the money to go all the way to the flagship F75 that is great and more power to you, the extreme amount of features on that one make it a standout in itself, but even though there are a couple less whistles and a few less bells if you choose the F70, keep in mind that both are built in the same basic platform, (along with the Teknetics T2),and the basic core performance is still there along with more than enough features and tools to make you and extremely successful hunter no matter what type you want to be, a coin shooter, a jewelry hunter, a relic hunter and more.
As a matter of fact, after my first season hunting with mine I still find my jaw dropping more often than not when I see and realize exactly what this thing is capable of...and I am not done yet discovering what I can accomplish just by changing a few settings here and there to match any site conditions I come across.
I am a tweaker, playing around with different settings to attempt to find those optimum hunting levels to enable me to find great things is almost as fun for me as finding those great targets to add to my collection, and with the shear amount of combinations possible on the F70 I feel I have died and gone to heaven because I have managed to squeeze out some great targets this year at sites that were let's say "very challenging" to say the least because I have those setting combinations at my disposal and I use them to my advantage.
Don't worry if you are not like me and you just want to take this thing out of the box and turn it on and go hunt at standard factory settings, this thing is deep and sensitive and still has all the great abilities that the Fisher line is known for like very fast recovery times and unworldly target separation at just about any setting combination including the factory start up settings and that includes using any coils available, also.
However, if you come across any sites where some tweaking will help you find those great targets a little deeper or a little easier you have more than enough tools to amaze you and help you do this just like it has done for me all this year.
I have 3 coils for mine, the standard 10" elliptical, the F75 large DD coil and a 5" DD sniper and I use them all and have found a huge amount of coins with all of them along with more than my share of jewelry including silver and gold with all 3.
As a matter of fact finding just about anything with any coil has become pretty easy after spending a little time learning to understand the language of this thing...not only the in your face info it gives you in the tones and on the screen but the hidden information that you will come to know as you get more comfortable with it and that hidden information can tell you much.

I use the sniper coil at my trashy sites and I hunt some unusually trashy areas when looking for jewelry.
The way it snakes though the trash and locks on to masked targets is a pleasure and a wonder to experience although I have used the standard coil and even my big DD coil at these type of sites also and by using the right settings they can do the job just about as well.
The depth with this small coils is amazing...8-9-10" and more is not out of range if you have good soil like I do, and I have used the pinpointer button to get depth readings and have seen even deeper targets than that although I did not dig them at the time due to hunting in frozen soil.

For covering large areas the elliptical coil is very capable and a pleasure to use.
This is my first experience using a coil like this and it seems to work like a concentric with that kind of coil's great and accurate disc ability and yet it is squeezed together in the middle and the effect is sort of like hunting with the elongated scanning field of a DD coil...or it seems that way to me, anyway.
Using this coil I found a very small piece of silver jewelry at 6" deep swinging that coil way too fast at the end of my first hunt with the F70, and about 10 hours later on my 3rd hunt it found me one of the nicest gold rings I have in my possession in a picnic site area and that ring was in the middle of and right next to a large amount of masking trash.
In my good soil the depth is no slouch on this one either and I have dug targets easily at the 7-8" area and it even gives audio cues on targets at 10" deep and more and I have dug them, although the screen info was nonexistent at the major depth levels because of the unusual way the F70 is set up.
From what I can gather from other reviews with more technical information it seems the F70, the F75 and maybe even the T2 has a little quirk in their programing that I am not sure others have.
In disc the screen will work in that environment but the audio is still going to be in all metal.
This is a feature that might just be worth its weight in gold...or silver, at specific sites.
All I can tell you if you get no info on the screen, hit the pinpoint button and get a very deep depth reading, which it will still do pretty accurately, and you get a solid repeating tone even if it is just a one way hit you want to dig a signal like that every time.
Trust me you may be very surprised on what you might find.

If you buy the model with the larger DD coil, or get that coil as an accessory sometime in the future which I will highly recommend, then that is the one you will be using at sites when depth is important.

When I say jaw dropping depth I mean it.
I found an Indian Head coin spill at the 7-8" depth area easily with this coil, and you might not believe this but I once got a signal on my deepest target dug so far, a thumb ringer off of an old time bicycle handlebar bell, and in this case and in disc I got some pretty accurate info on the screen the whole time, accurate depth info when I checked it with the pinpoint button, and a solid and repeatable tone every time from several different directions.
You might not believe this because even now it is hard for me to come to grips with this and I was there, but this target was every bit at a measured 15" depth level.
Another time using this coil and while experimenting I got a solid repeating dig me signal on a 5" measured depth dime and my sense was at 19 out of a possible 99.
Do the math and that is 1/5th power possible, and for every 10 numbers I raised up the sense I gained 2" in depth as I raised the coil to still hear that good solid tone.

Using this coil this summer I was also able to pull many great coins and other targets out of an old farmhouse site that was infested with so much iron from huge to tiny including maybe a million nails, a site that was so difficult to hunt that I know at least 3 other very capable hunters tried doing that with some very high end machines...once, but all decided to go on to much easier and greener pastures.

Me, I was much too stubborn to give up and kept trying different combinations of settings until I finally hit on a couple different ways to hunt this place and find those targets we all suspected were hiding but were so masked they were all but invisible to most detectors.
Several old wheaties back to the teens up through the 40's, a 1917 Merc, 6 pocket knives and a slew of other very cool items have come out of this place for me so far.
Oh yea, also hiding in this extreme amount of iron and all but invisible at 6" deep, but not so invisible my F70 couldn't find it, was my very first Walking Liberty coin and it was a half!

Now I know 2 ways to hunt in iron trash like this, one using all metal and another using disc and the 1 tone setting...just one of the 7 tone types available on this thing.
There may be other good ways to do this, I don't know, but like I said with the combinations possible no site is too difficult, too challenging or in any way outside your possibilities of success with as many choices you have with the settings possible on great F70.

The manual says it will ground balance down to salt at beach areas, and I have seen posts and vids of people using this thing to successfully find small gold nuggets out west too, both types of hunting I have yet to experience, but I have full confidence that this chameleon of a detector can do these things just as well as it can hunt regular sites for more common targets on land.

Use it at factory specs and find a ton, change the settings and change this thing into a totally different detector from an accurate and laser-lke trash site hunter to a wide open area tool that can cover lots of ground quickly and efficiently...and don't ever forget about that depth ability.


Again, if you want coins of any kind, old, new or made out of any metal this thing can find them at just about any depth.
Silver and gold jewelry, this thing can sniff them out just about as well or better than most detectors I have ever swung.
Relics, not a problem, even when heavy iron is a problem.

You might have heard the Fishers can be chatty and I will be honest they sure can be if you turn the sense way up at some sites.
I do hunt that way most of the time because noise does not bother me at all and I have leaned to read through the jumpy behavior and find great targets when using it this way.
Most F70 owners will tell you that no matter what is happening on the screen or in the tones, even with a wall of noise at some heavy EMI sites with the settings maxed, when this thing rolls over something good it will still and find a way to tell you when you learn its language, and I will tell you this too because I know it is a fact.

Be that as it may, if you are ever at a site that causes this thing to talk back to you too much, or are just the type of hunter that enjoys a quieter experience when doing this hobby, remember you don't have to turn it way up and get noisy to go deep.
Not in any way shape or form in my experience.
The standard factory settings are deep and usually quiet and you can dial it down even more if you want and not lose much of anything including depth.

If you buy one you will quickly find out the right settings for you I am sure.
Most of us do and we all use them in so many different ways, but one thing in common all owners who love them have is we are all pretty successful.
Plus we all have great fun hunting with a tool that is capable of doing so many amazing things. (Posted on 11/3/2014)
