Fisher is making a smart metal detector. New 2016

Fisher has promised to make 15 (!) new detectors. And a smart metal detector must be atop… Any competitor must lose sleep over these words (or smile?).

Do you remember a picture where the metal detector of the future immediately indicated the type of a find, its condition and estimated cost? Well, Fisher is going to make such a machine.


I’ve heard Fisher give a speech… We are making a smart metal detector that will search all by itself (without control on the part of a hunter) and show a picture of a find before it is dug up. In a perfect world, it will also estimate the condition of the find. The price for this metal detector will be up to $2000. In order to make such a smart machine, we have planned to release 15 new models, each of which will be a step towards our goal… Let’s start with two new products of 2016: the Fisher Mosca and the Fisher CZX metal detectors.

Fisher Mosca


Here’s the Fisher Mosca metal detector, the manufacturer promises we’ll see it in 2016. First off, it will be a multi-frequency device, but it’s just in word. The specification points out that it has 2 frequencies with a certain ratio. Having been asked a question “two or multiple frequency?” Fisher representatives hesitated… And finally announced that it would be definitely a multi-frequency machine with the ability to simultaneously operate over the entire frequency range.

In addition, the Fisher Mosca is an amphibian metal detector for ground and underwater (up to 3 meters) search. Wireless and/or (they couldn’t say for sure) underwater headphones. And what has this detector got that the Minelab CTX 3030 hasn’t? The latter has all this right now.

Fisher CZX


The Fisher CZX metal detector is also expected in 2016. It is announced as a special device to search for gold in any soil type (it has been specified that it can easily see through both red and black sand). The main peculiarity of the Fisher CZX will be the absence of adjustments for a hunter. The detector itself will tune all things out and choose the best parameters for a current search.

An auto search through all settings? And discrimination? Is Fisher better than Minelab? It seems to me that Minelab is higher than Fisher in terms of technology (if it were not so, we would know about it). As for the existing technologies of top metal detectors (for example, the Minelab CTX 3030), automatic tuning is of low efficiency in practical search. Maybe Fisher means just searching for gold. But there is also nothing to do here without manual adjustment (the way I look).

Here are the screenshots from the last Fisher presentation for sellers. To my mind, Fisher does embellish its potential. On the other hand, what else could it say?

  • Don’t you have a feeling that you already know the name of CZX? Is it all really so simple for 1st Texas that they can take consonant names of the already existing metal detectors? A small coincidence: the existing models have been also designed to search for gold and also qualify for the level of a smart metal detector.

  • If you look attentively at the announced specifications of future new products, you may think Fisher decided to fight off its competitor (Minelab) from inside…

    The metal detector operating at 2 frequencies with a 7:1 ratio already exists – it’s the Minelab Sovereign GT; as well as with a 9:1 ratio – these are the Minelab Safari/Explorer/E-Trac.

    Maybe Fisher decided to tease Minelab in such a way? The difference between FBS and CZ technologies is very small. Add X (eXtended) and be ready for patent courts ))

  • What most don’t know is that Minelab and Fisher , All are affiliated with each other. Gary Storm put Minelab on the map with his Excalibur for Minelab. So When in doubt purchaseing a Detectorpro unit like the new underwater. Gary made it happen.

    His works with Fisher and Minelab both so he’s the man behind the mask.

  • Minelab and Fisher are only connected in that they bith build metal detectors. No cooperation.

    Gary Storm is a great guy but is in no way connected with any of this – even if this is for real, which it may or may not be.

  • I don’t buy it. Even if First Texas has the best engineers from Fisher and Teknetics working on a machine of this caliber, I don’t believe they can pull it off. Even if the technology is there, I don’t have enough faith or confidence in First Texas to believe they can do it. Prove me wrong – I’ll be happy to spend my money on a couple of these. Until I see some proof, however, call me “Doubting Thomas”.

  • The CZX will be a interesting detector for nugget detectorists. I have been looking for something more modern to replace my aging Gold Bug 2 with, maybe this CZX will be the one.

  • It’s now May 2016 & still no news on these detectors.
    I somehow don’ t believe that will ever see them for sale.

  • No one is going to believe you ever again Fisher after this your full of Bull.

  • Good things take time.

    When it comes, it will “wash away” much of the existing marketplace and these machines will be full of features which make “cloning” very difficult.

    • yes and it will give other brands no other option other than to make their own instead of copying, get into their on R&D will either make or break them…

  • fisher want a detected “fly”

  • It is October 15 and nothing
