XP Deus And Fisher F75 – The Pros And Cons Of These Professional Metal Detectors (Expert Opinions+)
How long have you been using your metal detector and how well do you know it? The metal detector is just an object that has its pluses and minuses, the main job during detecting goes to the digger who must decide whether to dig the signal or not, go in the middle of the field or along the edge, look for places to detect in archives/maps and stories of local residents or go at random. The metal detector only gives an opportunity, but no more, so you need to know its weak and strong points!
Recently we asked ourselves the question- what are the pros and cons of two of the most professional detectors on the market: The XP Deus and the Fisher F75. Metal detectors are unique in their way and have broken more than one thousand copies in disputes on forums, so we will try to put a fat point in this issue on the basis of our own rich experience from detecting with these models by comparing them side by side. So, let’s go!
On the F75, the control buttons are more convenient, especially the pin-pointer button. With the XP Deus, I have experienced difficulty pressing the buttons through the screen cover, especially when wearing gloves. On the Fisher F75, he pinpoint button is like a “trigger” that you can just press and pinpoint the target.
And among other things, the F75 finds targets deeper than XP Deus.
The F75 is easier to control and easier to understand, whereas the XP Deus has a lot of “hidden” settings that you just have to learn.
With the Fisher F75, it’s a bit easier and faster to pass the whole field.
The F75 better sees small targets, especially small and deep-lying coins. While the XP Deus also sees small coins very well, my experience is that this only is true for certain depths.
The Fisher F75 has a more comfortable armrest for the hand. The armrest on the F75 can be adjusted and has a soft pad on it.
The XP Deus works more stable than the F75. The F75 can often give false signals and false VDIs, while this is rarely the case with the XP Deus.
The XP Deus works better with discrimination and signal detection in the ground and identifies big and silver coins better.
The XP Deus is more compact and more convenient to transport, assemble and store.
The XP Deus has more settings, which makes it more versatile for customization under certain conditions/locations. This gives more choice for detecting + the XP Deus has more frequencies – 4 against 1 in the Fisher.
The XP Deus is wireless, there are no wires and it has wireless headphones, as many as two models. The XP Deus can be charged directly, it has built-in batteries, and in the Fisher F75, you need to change the batteries.
The XP Deus is better suited for detecting on the beach than the Fisher F75.
And one of the main factors is the price. The Fisher F75 costs almost twice as little as an XP Deus at the beginning of 2018.
