The Manta Project was started by Alexandre and his associates more than 6 years ago. The prototypes were called Manta and later Aqua Manta and were all hand-built by Alexandre.

The Fisher Impulse AQ is built by Fisher at their factory in El Paso.

Badger, when you commented earlier that all the targets appeared to be surface targets, I had to wonder how closely you watched the video.

What I am talking about is something you can observe if you watch closely when the handle or the face of the control pod come into the shot.

So the detector he is using is an Aqua Manta, correct?

I was talking about the tone test. All the targets he used in the tone test were surface targets.

I looked closely at a few places where the handle and face of the control pod came into view. Maybe I missed the scene you are talking about. What is it that you want us to notice?

I always thought the prototype he uses was called the Aqua Manta. The Limited is made by FT and has the control box mounted on the handle. Was the Aqua Manta made by FT?

Alexandre was hired by FTP based on his N'th operational prototype version then named AQUAMANTA.

FTP has renamed it Impulse AQ for marketing reasons but it is exactly the same as the AQUAMANTA.

FTP has prepared the industrialization under close control of Alexandre.

The Impulse AQ LTD is now in normal production at El Paso  and Alexandre is now working on the prototype of the Impulse GOLD version.

Le Jag (Denis) has always been the preferred tester of Alexandre for all his consecutive prototype versions.

As such, he owns the latest prototype version and uses it routinely on his Brittany beaches with the success that is seen from his postings. This success is due to several factors:

  1.  His years long experience in using any type of  PI
  2. His very good knowledge of the dynamics of his preferred beaches and the high tides.
  3. The very good performance of the AQ
  4. His experience in using ALL-METAL mode at all time and still hear the differences between a hair pin or iron nail and a gold ring.
  5. The fact that people here are not wearing 10k or 14K but 18K jewelry.
  6. A very good health and powerful muscles to manipulate that large scoop he is using to dig such deep holes.

Badger, The detector he is using is an Impulse AQ - that is - it is a unit built in El Paso with the standard configuration of the Impulse AQ. The separation of the control unit from the handle is something LE JAG or Alexandre did in France after it arrived there.

It's exact and the electronic is similar to the production

Yes,

My pcb went up to El Paso
I just put up the front (with an old sticker)
on a box / for carrying in the front
which I find more practical
and also for ease of access to the pcb
Alexandre can easily change the progamation ...

Wow, amazing tides! I've seen that Abbey in a movie or two! Cool stuff!👍👍

Thanks for clearing that up. The modification made it confusing. I should have guessed it was an actual Fisher Impulse by the title of the video but I didn't notice the words until just now.

      I met up with a local forum member at 1 of my secret spots he has never been to. Conditions were bad , heavily sanded in. We were down in the wet , no mineralization to speak of , hard sand the first 3" then gravel mixture. The hole filled in fast. Keep in mind , my EDC for 30 years has been a PI. Also I used this for only 15 MINUTES. Here is what I found :
      I buried a small size 4 ladies 14k , 2 gram diamond ring about 12" in the hole and filled it. Myself being tall , the shaft was fully extended. Immediately I knew it was not long enough and it had a bit of a wobble. Did not feel steady because of that. Ergonomics seemed good and the coil felt light , so that was great. Now... the only settings I messed with were changing the modes. I didn't even look or ask what my buddy had those other settings on. I just wanted to get a feel for the machine and see if it had any discrimination. I tried 3 different modes when I swept over the hole : all metal , tone , mute. All 3 picked up the ring loud and clear. Then we threw a small piece of iron and a piece of lobster trap wire on top , which was probably about 4" above the ring. In all metal and tone mode , I could barely noticed the difference between all 3 targets. But I could seperate them from different directions. In the mute mode I couldn't. I thought I would only hear the ring , but I still heard all 3 targets. This really isn't any different than my DF. BUT , I do have a sense that this AQ can go a few more inches deeper. 6-8" ? I doubt it. Overall , it's not a bad machine , definitely needs a few tweaks. But I feel what needs more tweeks would be me...🤣 As accustomed as I am with a PI , I know this would take me MONTHS to get down. Let alone probably a good year or so to master. Kinda my short 15 minute hands on review of the AQ. Anyway...our hunt together was fun , even though we only found a few coins and trash. And I got to meet a great guy.

      My question is in the description.
      Does the AQ see all gold as low conductors. I have some big 18K and some mid sized 22K rings that give high numerical numbers on my Whites MX7 and from memory a high tone on my CZ21 (no longer have). I also recall a high tone on a pure gold nugget on a gold chain with the CZ21. I understand that golds conductivity diminishes as more alloys are added to the mix. 
      Will these bigger and higher karat gold rings be “low conductors” ?
      And finally......how does the AQ see platinum rings. I’d hate to miss any of the items described above.
      Thanks for any replies or first hand experience.

      I may have fell out of my tree again because here’s something I just don’t understand.
       You got a Limited AQ selling for 1500 and here come summer you have another AQ that will be selling for over a thousand more than the Limited.
       The word Limited is just referring to the number of detectors made on that run and as we’ve been told that number was 100 .
       What I’d like to know is the Limited ones also limited in brains as one would have to think that justifies the new AQ such a increase in price that goes with it .
       If it’s face is one only a mother could love with a bunch of knobs that okay . I’ve seen some of the best detectors ever made have nothing but knobs. I do have ears and I’ve been digging on sounds for years.
       I thank you ahead because I know somebody out there can answer my question and at the same time reduce the pressure on my brain when I think too hard.

      I just watched the FB live program on Treasure Talk. The new AQ will be released this summer, will have a depth rating of 10', an accessory 8" coil, and will cost $2,800 - $3,500!

      I was wondering if anyone has ordered anything from this company before. I'm assuming my headphones dies on the AQ, so I wanted to get the cable and have someone build me a new set of headphones. This company has the 5 pin M8 connector needed for the AQ I think.  It also has the ones that are "L" shaped which would look to be a better way to have the cable come out of the battery. The video shown sounds promising and the price seems extremely reasonable. Let me know what you think. Will it work?
