That is a good report for how the detector responds.  My last couple of trips have been deep beaches with little to show for my effort.  I'm wondering what I would find with an AQ in those types of beaches.

The rings I find sound good no matter what metal they are made of.  It falls into that physical shape category that supersedes the metal the object is made of.  It seems to be the opposite of chains which become 'invisible' to all known detectors at depth.

That is why 2 of my 3 pinpointer's are PI's! The third is the carrot, which hardly gets used! My Treasure Products 585 is my goto, and my PulseDive is the new kid in the arsenal!

 Nice pickup on the stud earring! And ring!👍👍

Hi Joe, I had purchased one I think it was called land and sea or something like that. Speaker gave out after it took a short fall out of the holder. Took it apart and saw that the speaker was not soldered like in the old days. almost looked glued in place. I also tried the Quest probe. That one is not nearly loud enough to use it near the ocean. Can't hear it with the sound from the waves and can't feel the vibration from it.  Honestly the best pulse I have used was the pistol probe which is not waterproof and looks from a distance like a gun 😲. I would love to have a dependable, loud   pulse pin pointer that is water proof in a Garrett carrot case. Any manufacturers really listening out there ? As far as the studs go, I'm not sure how deep I found them but probably pretty shallow. Some of them gave a double beep, so I probably will be missing them so I don't have to dig hair pins which also give a nice double beep.

The Fisher F-Point (or Teknetics Tec-Point is a very sensitive waterproof PI pinpointer. Available from various dealers at $129. Also available from me with direct ship from Fisher.

Once you get in tune with the AQ it's like you don't want to use anything else..

That is quite a statement!

Can hardly wait to get an AQ in my hands!

Nice report on the AQ. I think when they are finally released to the general public, a lot of people will be lined up waiting to purchase.

      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.
