Thanks Steeve for your concern and info.I did use the link you post for contacting Fisher and write my thoughts and disappointment about the whole issue not been able to buy one in Europe.I know they do'n't care about what I wrote but it's better than be quiet. 

Do you have family living in the USA or maybe know a prospecting body. They could help you out.

Send them the funds to buy the AQ in the US and have them send the unit to you this solves the problem ,not only for you but anybody living abroad, you just have to think out of the box.

Correction to this posting, this does not count for the limit edition only for the USA, only sold under special rules.

Thanks Steve. Very kind of you to spread the word. I will spend a day or so getting organized . Probably first I should disclose that I contacted Steve a couple of weeks ago and asked if he would

I have been following the pulse induction developments at Fisher Labs since January 2015. Things heated up in January 2018 with the Manta prototype that later became the Impulse AQ. I followed and pos

Thanks Simon. I look forward to getting my hands on this detector and sharing what I can about it with you all. I think it is a good idea for Fisher, in that if they do this right they can use the fee

That is not the problem. Not just anyone can buy one, and then ship it off wherever. At least not until the units are available for general retail purchase. And if that is the case, they will no doubt be available at local dealers overseas. First Texas may simply want this initial run kept close to home. Again, I'm not defending them in anyway, just laying out the situation as it appears to exist. Unless Rick approves the sale, it does not happen. He may be prohibited from knowingly selling a detector that would end up outside the U.S. and if so he can let us know one way or the other.

Sorry Steve, for the misunderstanding was not talking regarding the limit edition ,and understand that those do not count.

Well, once we get down the road to full production models I don't think the issue will exist anymore. The problem is these guys want one of these now.

I'm just glad Fisher has done it! They needed a new good detector, they're on the cuff of achieving it, 100 units going out for large scale testing by very experienced beach hunters that will likely give good feedback on any improvements necessary then a production run will take place and people will be able to buy the complete polished design detector.  It's all good news in my book and hopefully it leads to a new nugget detector based off the same technology which is sounding very likely.  Exciting times, I know it's difficult to be patient, however in this case it seems it will be worth the wait.  I look very forward to hearing about peoples experience with it.

I dont remember who mentioned that but while you are saving or holding for a new machine from Brand A Brand B is selling less or no machine.....

 

clever move

Finally, I sent a message to Alexander, and he explained to me the reasons (which I will not disclose) for selling the limited only in the USA.

so I can understand fisher for once.

I got slightly carried away in a previous message under the blow of anger and disillusionment. Please excuse me

i will wait the final product..

I remain attentive to the reports of the lucky ones who will have the first version. please don't come and test on the old continent😅🧐

How about First Texas learning to master social media instead of all this secrecy? Rule number one, communicate regularly with your customers. Rule number two, do so with honesty and transparency. I have found people will forgive anything if you are just up front and tell them what is going on. With silence, however, people always assume the worst.

      So the tides were decent enough on my days off to try again for some gold with the AQ or GPX. Since my beaches will not relent with the sanding in, I decided to try another strategy. Day one was split between the AQ for low tide and the GPX for deep silver. With the beach heavily sanded at low tide, all I could do was get some junk jewelry with the AQ. The GPX scored 3 silvers using the monster 18"DD Detech coil. It must have been a sight watching this guy struggle with that coil while holding a side stick and a big spade shovel 😄 The GPX wins that day. But... Day two was raining, so the GPX loses by default ... tough luck GPX (needs to be waterproof, hint, hint) So all day long I used the AQ at another beach which has a decent low tide. But as usual around here, it was sanded in more than ever. Low tide produced very few targets, just 3 zinc cents, some small junk jewelry and bottle caps. It looked like a wasted trip. But I wandered around all over, from high to low tide looking for a break. I knew that the rings were out of reach by the level of the sand against a breaker wall, so I decided to look for small jewelry in hopes of finding a gold stud or even a charm. No luck until I hit a small slope. By this time I had put gold out of my mind and just wanted to dig for the rest of the day. I used the all metal mode exclusively, just to boost the number of targets. I did get a lot of iron and bottle caps but then it happened. I got gold!!!!! No, not Joe or Mitchel kind of gold, 🙄 but more like anything I can get will do gold. So a small prayer necklace pendant shows up. I could tell it was gold right away. 10k it is...my FIRST gold with the AQ. I could now relax. So I started to grid this area carefully and a little while later I got a hit and could see a small bit of the target I thought was going to be a small silver earring.  But it turned out to be a 10k diamond studded Ankh symbol. Looks like a cross with a loop at the top. It's used in ancient Egypt, representing the symbol of life. Gorgeous little piece and my SECOND gold with the AQ. I was in shock. So I start to look around as I am getting back up and about 3 feet from that target I can visually see pieces of a gold rope chain sticking out of the sand. In my moment of professionalism, I tried every combination on the AQ to better find chains......... Actually I just grabbed that thing as fast as I could 😂 So I haven't tried the AQ to see if it actually would pick the chain up or not. But technically not my THIRD gold of the day since it is .925 with 1/12 10K overlay. I think they call that Vermeil. My bad day turned real good, real fast. I hunted a while longer and called it a day.  Thank you AQ for hitting that first gold target and making me stay in that area!

      I received my AQ yesterday afternoon.  I put the battery on charger and about an hour later it was fully charged.  After some scrambling around to get out of my apartment I hit the beach on an incoming tide.  I went to an area where I had seen beach PI holes before and decided to give it a try.  As you can see it was not a productive location except for the eCig cartridges which I got 3 of them.  They were deep and the sound was high.
      I started out in everything preset as the Quick Start suggests.  I didn't know what it was going to sound like but it is a higher pitch than I normally listen to.  The waves were making some noise as I was mostly in ankle deep but sometimes knee deep water.  The headphones were comfortable for the 3 hours I was out.  I didn't have a coin for the first 1.5 hours.  I've never had so many bottle caps but I don't hunt this area of the beach.  My deepest target was about 20 inches and was the bottom of the can.  I couldn't find one target at 24" and still digging.  At the end of 2 hours I decided to 'experiment' with going down a notch on frequency delay.  Then on the way back to my start I switched to tone mode.  That was when I heard a 'weird' low tone and when I dug it it was a dime.
      When I first started I had put my cell phone in my top pocket and on the 3rd dig hole it dropped in mud.  Now I have a finicky cell phone that doesn't want to charge properly.  I ordered another BLU phone to replace it. 
      When I put the two shafts together and tried the length I thought it was going to be too long.  It would be if it was a heavy unit but I was able to use the first notch with the push out pin but this would not be good for my wife.  I would suggest that the pin be moved on the lower shaft and also make it shorter.
      It is going to be a learning curve to find a beach that is PI 'friendly' which means that it holds deep jewelry/gold and not just deep trash.

      Low water at the local hole today. Low enough that I had wet sand to do some testing with. I can call fish hooks well in the wet sand in all metal ... but not well in the water where I don't have the same ability to change coil speed like over the wet sand. Got lots of lead today, not too many fish hooks other than those attached to rigs with lead or with brass swivels. A couple of deep nickles, one really deep spark plug and one junk child's ring. Was chest deep over a target that sounded really good ... and the battery died. Didn't pack the second one because I had to take care of some other things today, so it was my alarm clock to head home ... and enough of a work out in the shape I'm in. A bit sore this evening, but it is a good sore.
      Cheers,

      It took me 4 short hunts to finally run the battery down.  Total run time was approximately 11 hours and 35 minutes.  That sure beat the 3 1/2 from the factory battery.  I ran about 95% of the time in AM and only switched to Tone or Mute to check targets. Running mostly presets on the other settings.  The audio of certain targets is starting to become inbedded in my brain now.  Nickels are easy to recognize now.

      One layer rubberized and an outer layer of "Flex Seal".  First trial in fresh water with just the rubberized seemed to mute the mid-depth interference.  Made the noise easier to tune out--not such sharp reports from waves passing.  Would like to hear back on  some salt trials.
