Yeah, it never was a very popular machine. Fisher always made very analog machines with dials and needles etc. The digital machines were met with some resistance from the hardcore Fisher old timers. The ID excel was pretty much like the CZ3D with a digital read out. It's a twin to the ID-edge with a hotter coil setup and dual frequency leaning towards the silver. Personally, I like them both equally but usually grab the CZ3D first just because i like the looks of it. I'm not a big junk digger(dig everything kinda guy). I set my discrim at square tab and start swinging. If I get a solid hit in the gold range I lift the coil up to see how strong it is. If it's good I dig it, if it dissappears I carry on. Both machines register nickles as a high tone so they're pretty good nickle killers.
The T2 should be pretty interesting. I mulled over the Fisher F75 and F70 for a bit, but the T2 is pretty much the exact same thing and came with a way better package from kellyco. It came with a free 15"x12" SEF butterfly coil as well. Apparently the discrimination is pretty dead nutz accurate too. I'm pretty excited to see what she can do.
