The special camo used on the F19LTD was ordered in limited numbers and we are nearing the end of stock on those parts. New part number, F19 will replace the camo version and have a standard black finish with a stock white coil and be available at a lower cost. If you are a fan of the camo version, don’t wait too long, when they are gone, they are gone forever. Here are the prices for the F19: MSRP $799
We have been getting great reviews on the Enhanced F75 and F75LTD detectors and our upgrade program (see our website for details). Here is a comment we received from a well-known and respected relic hunter:
This is one of the finest, smoothest, deepest metal detectors I have ever had the pleasure to run. Words can’t describe the raw, stable power this detector has. I feel your design has reached the apex and whatever y’all have this unit set at right now: do not change it! Word of mouth will place this detector on top of its game. Again, I am totally enamored with the product; it’s a pleasure to run. It’s hot on the smallest and largest targets and in my bad dirt to boot. Thank you. Keith Southern.
New Pole Assembly for the 1280X water detectors.
The pole assembly for the 1280X-8 and 1280X-10 has been changed from a two-piece to a three-piece version. The upper stem has been shortened and a center pole section added. The overall minimum and maximum adjustments remain the same, but the shorter stem sections allow us to decrease the size of the shipping box.
New Color Boxes for Fisher 1280X and Gold Bug-2 models.
New full color boxes are coming for the 1280X and GB-2 detectors. These new boxes will be smaller than previous, only 24” long, making them easier to stock and ship.
The 1280X models will now come complete with an arm strap accessory included. We will begin shipping these in the next few months.
Gold Bug and Gold Bug Pro Enhancements
We have made some improvements to the Gold Bug and Gold Bug Pro detectors. We removed the 1/8” phone jack and added a rubberized plug to cover the 1/4” phone jack. This will keep dirt and debris from entering the housing when phones are not in use. We also moved the location of the coil connector jack on the back of housing, to a raised portion which makes it much easier to tighten or remove the coil connector plug. This new housing will be a rolling change and implemented sometime this spring.
6” Elliptical Coil Quality Improvement
We have improved our 6” elliptical coils. The plastic will now be injected molded rather than vacuum formed. This change will result in better quality and shorter lead times on the pieces. These new coils will no longer have epoxy bottoms and the new ear design will have vertical ribs. This new style fits the stem with tighter tolerance and minimizes the need for stem washers. New coils will begin shipping as the old stock is depleted. This new style of coil also utilizes a new snap-on style coil cover, which is much easier to install and remove. We will continue to maintain stock of the old style coil cover (p/n 6COVER-E) so be aware of the difference when you order because they are not interchangeable. Here are the affected part numbers:
6COIL-E MSRP $169 (used on F70/F75) 6COIL-E-7-GB2 MSRP $143.95 (used on GB-2) 6COVER-E2 MSRP $9.95 (new coil cover)
Price Increase on CZ21’s
Rising production costs are causing us to increase the price of our CZ21-8 and CZ21-10. Prices are the same for both models. The price increase will take effect January 16, 2014. Get your orders in before the price increase takes affect! New price MSRP $1,799

DETECTORS AND BACK ORDERS
The current high price of gold and the numerous metal
detecting reality shows has created a flood interest
in the metal detecting industry. While this is a good
thing, it has created a few shortages and delays that
we could not foresee. We are doing the best we can to
minimize any inventory shortages and alleviate back
orders. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
PHOTO’S! We are always looking
for stories, field reports, videos, testimonials and
photographs of finds so encourage your customers to
submit them. We may use them in advertising, the World
Treasure News publication, or post them on our website.
Shots with the detector control box near the find always
makes for a great photo and we can never have enough
pictures of young kids detecting! Videos are also welcome.

15COIL-F75 ($299.00) has
been selling extremely well all around the world. This
15 inch DD coil gives a huge depth advantage over the
11 inch especially when used with the boost or cache
modes. The depth is incredible, letting you see that
deep virgin ground that is out of reach for all other
detectors. The DD configuration and speed of the F75
still gives excellent separation for a coil this size.

It has manual ground balance (can’t be manually
adjusted), and is only slightly less sensitive than
the Pro model.
Super-hot GOLDBUG-PRO ($699)
is redefining gold prospecting and the relic hunters
love it too. Many of the features pioneered on this
unit and other FTP products are now being emulated
by other manufacturers. It has manual ground balance
(adjustable), VCO in DISC, and is more sensitive
than the regular Gold Bug.
($749) This model comes standard with the
11”DD coil, making it a very popular relic
and coin machine. All of these detectors are excellent
dual-purpose machines, good for both nuggets and
coins/relics. The Pro DD is one of my favorite relic
Very Versatile with Coil Options
11” DD coil changes the mid-priced F5 into a serious
high-end unit. The performance on target separation
and depth is incredible and its popularity is growing!
Change to the 5” DD coil and you now have a killer
trashy site machine! The target separation is superb,
allowing you to work between the trash and pull out
the coins and rings. Many are reluctant to try small
coils, as I was, but you really owe it to yourself to
try one. You will be amazed at the additional targets
you will be able to hear.
