Re: I once had a Fisher 1266 X smiling smiley

UtahRich: I remember it was a solid, well built machine.

Going back to their original 1260X it brought us a new and interesting physical design, well built, and was the first of the slow-motion quick-response / fast-recovery models in '82 using the Double-Derivative (aka 2-Tone) circuitry approach.


UtahRich: The dual discrimination was interesting.

The Dual Discrimination was an unusual, and to me a close-to-useless, approach to functional Discrimination. But the main reason the 1200 series didn't fit well with me was because they didn't handle Iron Nail rejection very well. Good detection depth and overall performance .... except for terrible iron contaminated sites.


UtahRich: The new deeptech vista-X brought back memories of my 1265-X. I think deeptech should have used the trigger location of the fisher, right out front in easy reach of the "trigger" finger.

The DeepTech Vista 'X' does bring back some memories of those Fisher designs ... HOWEVER, I find the 'X' to be a much more functional or useful design because you not only have an Alternate Disc. mode to use, but using the Disc. or Alt. Disc. controls allows the user to adjust a 2-Tone 'Tone-Break' setting. Additionally, there is a separate Iron Audio or really a Low-Tone Audio Volume Control.

J.t., you're partly correct on the 6000 Pro XL but wrong on the M6.
