I think the flame of buying an AQ in me has been gone now.As Steve said it all can be put on ice for ever.I think those who bought the Limited version has gambled(No guarantee for the unit + some issues which the machine has).I think when now Steve selling his AQ it can be an ALARM for the rest of us.The final production can be a myth.

I've lost interest in the AQ as well. I was all excited for a while but now it doesn't seem to be living up to the claims. Looks like it's just another pulse unit with a couple of tweaks added.

I'd rather see a new line of high performance CZ's for the beach.

That’s not what I said at all. I do think that it is pointless to continue with the Limited series. Just fix the thing to what it should have been in the first place before making any more. I sold mine purely out of a preference to have the finished version instead. If they ever come out with one done right, you can bet I’ll be one of the first to get one. Or the Impulse Gold. I’ll have to see both first to see which would best serve my situation. I think for freshwater lakes I might prefer the Gold version instead.

It is concerning though that everything has stopped with no explanation. Stuff like the Facebook page, what was that all about? I have to say as a businessman most of what FT does as regards the Fisher brand completely baffles me.

    I think Steve had the right idea selling the Ltd! And I'm not just blowing smoke up his patootie!

    Trying out any detector, then selling it, if it's not exactly what you wanted, or expected, is a "win win" for not only the seller, but also someone like me that no longer feels the need to have new machine sticker shock! Or someone just getting into the hobby! I've been doing that with vehicles for years! And now apply that to detectors!

   And once you have all the bases covered, with a few detectors, for the kinds of detecting you do! Who need's closet queens taking up valuable space! I think the only exception would be a collector! Other than that, it's good to clean house once and awhile, to make room for latest and greatest gently used detector!👍👍

I myself can not be happier with my two AQ’s and in no way regret buying them. As a matter of fact I feel like, after a few modifications, I have a better built unit than the unlimited or whatever they call it. I’m not to big on the phones coming out the back of the control box and Joes battery gives me a nice M12 phone connection and plenty of run time. On top of that with only 30 or so out so far, it may become a collectors item. And as far as depth and gold, I have found none better for my area. So to each his own and thanks Alexandre. Also the service from Rick and First Texas is superb. Good luck everybody and stay safe.

the problem is that if they still wait too long, they run the risk that another similar machine will be released beforehand from another manufacturer, or another star detector from the beaches at minelab. at this point, people who are already tired of waiting will rush out and lose interest and budget for aq. this strategy of silence and confidentiality on the part of fisher worked for a while, but making it long-term is a mistake, we can see that people have lost fear of interest. Fisher, for the sake of your business, we urge you to contact us without further delay!

If every time Steve sold a detector it meant that there was something amiss, there wouldn't be any detector companies left in business.

      Ring # 5 with the AQ.   This ring was at least 12" in the packed mud and it has been down there for a very long time. It was barely auditable. The ring did not have any gold markings but tested as 14k. I would NOT have hit this with the NOX.   I was running the machine hot. Settings were: Sensitivity=7, Delay=8, ATS=5, ALL METAL.   I went slower than usual to keep the chatter down for the setting above. The location is where I have found rings in the past

      Not to be a "Debbie Downer" but be careful what you wish for. My AQ has been at FT for repair since they received it on January 4th of this year. Almost 2 months now. I would have thought that FT would be more responsive and obligatory to those who got the Limited and needed repair.

      If it comes with waterproof headphones, why would I want those?
      I'll probably want to go wireless.
      Even if I did decide to go in the water, why can't I use what I have or choose what I want?

      Can owners of the limited tell us to what extent you intervene on the settings?
       
      it looks like most of it is all metal. so for example in a standard hunt do you often touch the sensitivity, the ats and delay? when? and why ?

      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.
