cjc. I tend to run things a little on the hot side which I probably shouldn’t do especially when learning a new machine. When you say turn it down are you referring to the ats, sensitivity and delay, all together or just a specific function?

The Gain. and Delay.  Some of those micro targets would sound like nothing at 11 uSc with the Gain at or below preset.  The TDI broke me of the "maxed out" habit. cjc

Those are the kinds of basics of which I speak.  These kinds of skills are all the more important with a powerful pulse like the AQ.  With them--what you have is a very accurate pulse.   Im learning this machine too but the ideas in that book are everything I need to apply to progress.  (Tones notwithstanding). Its' been winter here and I've had the AQ out maybe a dozen times--enough to tell how much potential it has.

Thats a great hunt.  Not to say that Im alltogether skilled with this machine but I get the sense of what it's capable of.  I think that if one learns to go after narrow responses, stay off the elongated targets and (hate to say it rotten glasses) the AQ has the potential to be very accurate.  It's a clean signal with a lot of target information.  cjc

I don't speak English, I'm not sure about the machine translation ... what do you mean by a narrow answer? it seems to me that the jag says the opposite in a video where he compares the pulltab and a gold ring 🤔.

he says that on the gold ring the sound is elongated at the exit while it stops more abruptly on the pulltab. personally I hear nothing on the video, to see in the sand and with the headphones ...

suddenly I have the impression that it is the reverse of what you say, of course I understand maybe badly the translation, I am sorry.

cjc, are you going to write a thread with all of these niceties? that seems interesting to me.

I think what Denis is saying is that gold "hangs on" better when you take the coil away.   Im saying that compared to say a bottlecap--gold is a narrow less drawn out tone.  Denis used the word "elastic" and I do understand what he means by that.  cjc

par étroit, il veux dire fin ! 

sur l'or, le son est très fin et il s'étire a l'accroche et a la sorti / quand on passe la cible

sur l'alu c'est beaucoup plus brutal / quasi du on/off

on ne peux pas entendre la différence a l'air libre et avec un hp

et plus le sable est compact plus la différence est net..

+  ma dernière sortie, que du léger et une tissot qui fonctionne toujours

elle était encore a l'heure d'été  et dans du sable noir :))

Ok je comprend mieux en français 🙂

sympa la montre , j’ai fait presque la même gourmette cet été et presque les deux meme alliances Y’a quelques jours dans la semoule contre une légère coupe 

Moi aussi j’ai que de l’or léger en ce moment 

voici mes 4 dernières sorties . 
il me faut absolument le AQ pour aller chercher le lourd .

je vais passé te voir,  je te ferais une démo :))

Avec plaisir . Je suis en Espagne en ce moment 🙂
La situation covid est plus agréable à vivre que en France , hormis le fait que il y a eu des périodes où on est confiné dans notre municipalité sans pouvoir sortir .

      Just received my AQ last week. First two hunts at a worked out beach scored some really deep silver and some old coins.  Most hunters can't find a target at this beach, just ask OBN everybody hates this place. Then I tried another heavily hunted beach today for the third hunt. Scored two 14K rings and a crusty 10K pendant. I thought the pendant was a mini sinker at first. Today's Gold was very deep and the AQ hit solid on them. I'd still be there if the battery didn't die.  I don't believe my Excal would have found them today.
      I love my AQ

      Had an awesome month using the Fisher AQ on the low tide wet sand slopes. Ran the AQ mostly in "tone" mode but did spend some time in "all metal" when trash targets were not too bad..All I can say is that I love this machine! My trusty Sov. GT is starting to collect dust now and the AQ has become my go to detector and the GT my "just in case" back up.
      I started out April with a very crusty 10k class ring. Soaked it in CLR over night and removed all the crust, here's the kicker though, as I was sitting on my couch looking through my loop at the ring trying to figure out the date on the class ring and other details, I fumbled the ring in my fingers and it dropped directly onto my tile floor and shattered into pieces! I spent about 15 mins carefully gathering the pieces along with the Ruby stone that was in the center. I was going to scrap the ring anyway but I did want to get a picture of it after clean up before I did. There is a date under the eagle, its very hard to see but it looks like "1955".
      The rest of the rings are 14k, with one having CZ stones and the one on the right with real diamonds. Also found what look like two gold tooth caps, acid tested good for 18k. The last gold item of the month was a 22.1 gram 18k (750) gold Rosary found way out in the negative low tide wet sand plateau. I searched around the area thoroughly for the cross and the rest of the beads but had no luck.
      Also an honorable mention on the silvers I found, The silver heart bracelet is Tiffany & Co and goes for $275 new https://www.tiffany.com/jewelry/bracelets/return-to-tiffany-love-tiffany-blue-heart-tag-bead-bracelet-GRP09904/
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
      Also found a silver Gucci stud ear ring,  a pair goes for $245 https://www.gucci.com/us/en/pr/jewelry-watches/silver-jewelry/silver-earrings/silver-interlocking-g-earrings-p-356289J84000702?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1_Ofj-qu8AIVcz6tBh3eJwziEAQYAiABEgKm0vD_BwE 
      So gold totals for the month are:
      10k- 5.8 grams
      14k- 20.3 grams
      18k-22.1 grams
      Tooth Caps (18k) - 3.5 grams
      Now onto May!
      Thanks for looking & Happy Hunting!

      I have sent an e-mail to Felix at FT with these pictures.  Hopefully they just send me a new rod ASAP.  This is what happens when you hunt wet sand and California surf.  Or it could just have been a poor quality made rod.  Hoping for that latter as the wet sand California surf is the only place I have to use the Impulse AQ and don't want to have to worry about this again.

      It appears Fisher has shipped at least one AQ Limited off to Australia.

      Went out to 2 different beaches for a mix of GPX and AQ hunting. Tony repaired my headphones for the AQ and also made me a spare set , along with 2 short cables, so I could zip tie the short cable to the machine, and so I would not break the M8 connector. The short cable also converts the M8 to an M12, a more robust connector going to the headphones. So, for the first AQ hunt in a while, I chose my “spot” to see if I could find any low conductors where the GPX had previously run the 18” DD coil. I did not find any coins in that area, but did find little bits of melted copper and lead. So, I ventured out a bit and found the silver Washington quarter,Mercury dime and all the rest of the other coins.  I Later met up with a forum member - Jim in ma, at one of his spots. Thanks for the invite up there. 👍 I used the GPX to see if I could replicate the depth and coin count that I have had previously at my silver beach. This beach was smaller in the dry sand area, but the EMI was considerably less. The sand structure was different too, as I did not hit a clay layer or any of the other layers I was used to. But the principle was the same, and I did score a decent number of coins including the Mercury,  silver war nickel & .925 ring. All in all, it was a fun time out.
