Questions about the F-70 / Teknetics Patriot and F-5.

January 09, 2022 03:03PM avatar
I was on a metal detecting forum where someone commented they've heard very little from First Texas Products and they had questions regarding the F-70 or Teknetics Patriot. They have an F-70 in a closet or somewhere and thought about putting it back in action. Also, they had been on a popular Metal Detector Dealer / Distributor website to shop within their budget and spotted the F-5.

I have only briefly handled the F-70 so I am not that familiar with it. I am up a bit on the F,5, but can't compare it with an unknown.

Anyone have, or have-had, the F-70 or Tek. Patriot who could share their thoughts about it? He is mainly an urban park and sports field hunter.



I briefly visited the Fisher and TekneticsDirect websites a while ago. I've visited long abandond ghost towns with more signs of life! I only saw maybe three detectors listed on TekDirect, leaves me wondering even more how long FTP will be around.

Thanks. I read Revier's post maybe a year ago.
