he is in production // finally ..
I find it amazing that your dealer does not speak

a French seller already takes pre-orders
without delivery date ....
price announce France / Europe 2490 euros

I find it even more amazing there is no official announcement from First Texas. Dealers sometimes jump the gun trying to round up preorders that may not be delivered on for a very long time. If the detector is in production an official announcement with final specifications would be in order very soon. Maybe after this holiday weekend? It would be a nice present for me! :smile: I wonder if we are looking at one model or two?

Thank you once again LE.JAG for giving us a little hope for the new year.

Price also depends on that being MSRP or final discounted price in the U.S. plus who knows what kind of import taxes they have in France.  Over $2K but that’s been expected all along.

After conversion and taxes.......these will be about $4500 Australian or the equivalent of 3 TDI Beachhunters. I’m guessing they will sell about one unit based on that price here in Australia. Serious hunters may consider the AQ if there is a significant depth increase over what is currently available........in my opinion, highly Unlikely but I’d be very happy to be proven wrong 👍
Also, if the unit is only rated to 1 metre depth of water........it’s not “if” but “when” the detector will be compromised. For that sort of money....the waterproofness needs to be far better. Look at the Seahunter battery setup.....probably the best going.

I do not have the US price
for Europe, there is the cost of transport
customs taxes
and of course the seller's margin
you will have it much cheaper ..

the French seller is undoubtedly optimistic
to already take pre-orders ...

concerning the detector

until the last straight line
he received modifications

more stable / even quieter
and less sensitive to the soil effect

cut the iron / take the gold
is now child's play

cut leaden balls (25 gr) and take the gold ring 2.5gr 18k

cut bullets / flintlock rifle model english 1750
and take the 22k gold coin

my last hunt / 3 days ago

a ring in white gold 18k / 2.6gr
and especially the medal 18k 6gr
this medal has a horse head stamp = 1838/1919
he is a jeweler known in France
Augis / model of the medal 1907 ((diamond and ruby and a quote from a poem
+ than yesterday - that tomorrow ))

she was laying on the bottom / black sand
between 17 and 19 inches   //  It is much deeper than the TDI (all model 12 / 14.4 volts)

7us all metals / sensitivity maximuum
SAT at the slowest

I think she was here for a century
this medal / perfectly summarizes the system, AQ

the ability to detect the gold that is under your feet
since always
you walk on / at each exit

they have been there for 50 years / since a century .......

now = you can hear it 🙂

I'm sure an old GP extreme will still beat this for depth, and you can pick one up for about $1300 here in Oz. I agree with Tony, can't see who will buy the Impulse here in Australia. For it to be of any serious interest to myself and I'm sure other beach hunters, it would need to ID iron at depth consistently accurately, and would need to beat an Equinox, 3030 or even an old Sovereign for depth.

I would back my TDIBH to get that medallion at that depth too.

For now, I don’t accept that the AQ is “much deeper” than the TDIBH at 14.4v.

From what I have gathered, the AQ is comparable or MAY have a slight depth edge but nothing suggests it is “much deeper”.......for now. 

Time will tell....and if the AQ is “much deeper” than the TDIBH then there will be no one more happier than me and the current pricing would be somewhat justified.

WooW,, what a relief!! have been waited for this detector for years now.I have already send a message to our metal detector dealer here in Sweden and waiting for the respons.I dont know if the dealer is aware of this detector at all or maybe he is.The price is acceptable if the detector deliver what it suppose to do which is finding gold,then the machine paying itself in no time.

      We have been told on several occasions that it was impossible to export the Aqua limited outside of the United States and now on the official page of Fisher I find this publication.  How is this possible?

      Was in Myrtle Beach for most of a week. Got the AQ well into the chop on this trip. I stayed in cuts between sand bars and the beach so the waves were not terrible and I was able to stay on my feet. Ran all metal all the time. It ran mostly quiet with ATS on 7, Sensitivity on 4, delay on 10. If I ran delay less than 10, each step lower got a good bit more noisy. ATS lower than 7 did not make for good hunting either. Still left lots of adjustment should I venture beyond the sand bar. Had the big coil on, did not take the 8 inch on this trip. The waves did make for an effort controlling the coil, but made it through without mishap. Did not go out detecting on Thursday when Elsa went through. Elsa seemed to mostly push some sand up on the beach in the area we were staying; that made the bottoms of the cuts softer than they were early in the week. That said, On Friday in a soft bottomed cut, had a fairly faint but repeatable signal that after four scoops became very loud and I got it on the fifth scoop. Nice little 2.3 gram 14K gold pendant.

      Sorry, I can't seem to find my previous thread on this subject. To recap, my AQ wouldn't power up, so, it was sent in to Fisher for repair. They claimed that it was the battery. I had my doubts, as I had tried a second battery with the same results. Anyway, they claimed it was only the battery and sent it back to me with a new one. On a side note, I had just sent the electronics back to them, and kept all the rods, cuff, and charger to save on shipping costs. Well, it seems they want EVERYTHING sent back when they do a repair. That's a first for me. They even told me that you shouldn't remove the arm cuff at all! It's something that they have to do, and not something the customer is capable of as it might damage the cable inside the rod.  Good grief, what a design. Anyway, when I got it back, I noticed that the cable from the battery to the pod had been changed. Hmmm, I wonder if that was really the problem and not the battery. Otherwise, why change it? Oh, you think they might have sent a new and improved one? Think again. I didn't think they could make that design any worse, but, they managed. It's even longer that the original, and wimpier IMO. And what is the problem with using 90 degree connectors to reduce the risk of cable damage? Well, it works now, so, I guess I can't complain too much, in fact, the new battery is a lot better than the original. The last hunt, I got over 3 1/2 hours on it and still had a green light! That's definitely an improvement. Now, if I can just find something good that my other detectors couldn't find!

      Hi guys!
      I watched the treasuretalk on youtube for couple of days ago and Myer's metal detecting confirmed he is going to bring in AQ final edition in the shop next month in july! just wanted to ask others if it is true and anybody heared anything about it,Thanks!

      Walked down to the local watering hole; brackish water bay tributary, pretty well cleared out over the years but a bit trashy with bits of iron. Ran delay 7, sensitivity 7, threshold 4, volume 8, ATS 6.5, reject 6; mostly all metal but some tones and mute to check targets.
      Initial reaction is that it is a little easier to hear the edge modulation with the 8 inch than with the big coil. I walked away from several targets that were very pronounced double tones then had a more subtle edge that I told myself to walk away … but dig to verify. That was the little fish hook. The odd shaped washer, to the right of the fish hook, fooled me; it sounded pretty good in all metal and in tones. The rest of it is all non-ferrous. Some of the small targets fell through the scoop several times before I finally capture them and got them in the pouch. This set up finds fairly small targets well. Tones seem to be more pronounced to me with this coil than with the big coil with some similar settings, yet I think I still hear iron better in all metal than in tones ... maybe some setting tweeks would change that around but I'm pretty happy in all metal.
      I did have an interference issue. A boat about 100 feet from me fired up and the AQ talked and talked. Stepped through the frequencies and no help there. I was shallow enough the detector head was above water so I went deep where the detector electronics were well under water and, surprise to me, that did not help either. Dropping the sensitivity down to 2 made it usable. Once he lowered the boat lift, backed off and motored away I could turn the sensitivity back up and hunt with a very quiet AQ.
      Did have a great blue heron land on the beach and walk into the water. Got about 30 feet away from me so I stayed still and watched it turn its head looking for minnows, catch and eat them. After a few minutes it walked around the beach corner towards the boat lift then flew about 2 hundred yards down the water.
      A good afternoon in the water.

      Didn't get out this past week since I was under the weather.
      Started out with the detector being really unstable. Water got into the coil connector. Blew the water out of the connector and tightened the back-shell and everything was good to go. I also have noticed when I'm in shallow water she's a little noisy and a lot of falsing (water way below the connector). She's pretty stable when completely covered. I do run my machine hot in all metal.
      One old beach I hunt always has sand piled in to the one side. No sand movement in this area other than more accumulation. For years I said there has to be targets just out of detection range. Well not for the AQ. I did find a few targets in this area. I had to work slow since these targets were pretty close to the depth limit and I was running hot. A few pieces of crusty Silver and a nice 10K ring dated 1946.
