Yea, that's what I was going to say, you were digging like mad!  I could not handle that sort of detecting! I get angry at junk 🙂

Almost enough to scare me away from the AQ until I saw you were mostly in the dry. Interesting though the bottle caps, from my quick count, about 1/3 of the caps were Corona's.......the average for Corona would be very similar down here in Florida at my beaches.

Good luck on your next hunt.

Thanks Cliff. Dry is all I had this week. The machine isn't really intended to be used like I am using it. My beach season is just getting started, so I will do more  lower slope wet sand hunts, as I can get out. The water hunts are left to the pros to show. Just wanted to add that the machine ran very stable when not exposed to the train, which was about 20 feet away.

I have a lot to learn, so I am digging every target. I am getting better at knowing hair pins, as I could call most of them before I dug them. Bottle caps are a different story, as the only idea they might be bottle caps was the extremely strong and wider signal. 

This was the exact report. He not only went on dry sand but also was digging every target  while  learning the sounds.

Definitely!  and, I'll probably do the same to learn the "language" of the AQ.

If I ever get the AQ, I too will be digging everything to see what it does, but probably won't hunt the dry sand.

Curious if the tone is flatter on the bottle caps or do they have the same exact sound as a quarter? Usually iron hits bit harder on my no frills PI and I still dig it just because it bothers me I could be wrong 🙂

      Hello 
      have you seen this video ? 
       
       Lot of iron ... 
      I don't understand English very well, but I have the impression that he says that there is no variation in the audio. and that there is no double beep on the bobbie pin .it is sold to find under iron, but I see it only finds iron. 🤔

      I was wondering what features in the new Impulse Gold detector you nugget detectorists would like to see in this new  machine to make you buy? For myself the lightweight part is very important, I would also like to see solid coils for ease of use in uneven terrain, and I would like to see gpz type performance on surface grain size gold and would like to see gpz type performance on 1-2 gram nuggets at depth. Not real concerned about deep large nuggets. Auto ground balance would be a huge plus too. Perhaps the 7 usec timing will be enough to produce gpz type performance on grain size and gram size gold. Time will tell I guess.
      I don't expect Minelab will be sitting still with regards building a lightweight nugget detector flagship model, sooner than later probably.

      No, I actually do not know what the new Fisher Impulse Terra will be called. It is just that I doubt it will be called the Impulse Terra and Impulse AU seemed like a good pairing with Impulse AQ. Probably wrong but I can change it when we find out for sure. The main thing is this dry land gold prospecting version of the Impulse AQ is 99% certain at this point, so I wanted to start tracking it as a separate model with what is know about it so far. Which is not much. WE know testing is taking place with an 8" coil but do not know for sure if that will be the stock coil or not. It would be a good choice for small gold but not good for covering ground or for larger deeper gold. OK though if that's what they go with. Presumably a 12" coil is a possibility as stock or as an option.
      It will have to ground balance, and it may or may not have ferrous rejection capability. I personally hope it does, as some areas are full of ferrous trash and missing some gold is worth it to be able to use a PI in those areas.
      Anyway, will be updating as I find out stuff. I'm kind of more interested in the beach model myself as i have nugget detectors already, but it will depend just what the feature mix is that will swing me one way or the other.
