Great hunt and nice selection of trash. I think you covered every type of trash out there.

What year is the Buffalo if it is readable?

Good luck on your next outing.

Good idea , but over time.....you might need a truck ! 

Ya knowwww It's so hard to tell one beach's trash from the next one. 

Maybe just keep it all in one bag and label it just before bringing it in ! LOL

Looks like what I am getting now out of my nearest local beach ... and I hear you about the smell of the clay and silt bottom stuff.

Thanks for the scoop report. I'll keep that in mind when I look for another back up.

It would have to be a big bag 😄

Yep, My wife let's me know every time I bring home stuff from that beach. 🥱 I wanted to try their titanium version but the cost was more than I wanted to spend. Plus the fact that I know titanium is very strong, but I could not stop thinking that the abrasion from beach sand would wear the tip away quicker than 316 stainless steel version.

I know. What's up with that? 😄 Usually I get a lot of them but so far not too many on this beach.

You made a great choice on your scoop. Probably even wiser on the 1 you didn't buy. My guess is you saw my post on the other forum where I talked extensively on it with pics. I'm kinda surprised you were out there for 5 hours. Usually I have a good idea of what's going on in about 20 minutes. Unless your are just wanting exercise and exploring. But sometimes the low tides are a vast wasteland. Better luck next time , you will do much better.

I just couldn't bite on the fact that titanium will hold up to the demands of a beach. Plus I could almost buy 2 of the stainless steel ones for the price of the titanium.  I usually stay at a beach for the entire hunt. It takes me 1 1/2 - 2 hours travel one way to get to a beach, so I rarely travel the extra 1/2 hour + between beaches. 5 Hours is a short hunt for me, and I arrived late only because the tides were unaligned with the gate opening at this beach. I'm good for 8-10 hours at a time😄 My detecting has always been done for the exercise, and for the thrill of the hunt. I just love detecting, and now as I get older it's a game to see how long I can keep at it. Will I make 60 years??? I don't know, but I'm dying to find out. I don't think I saw your review, as I'm not on any other major forums anymore. I'm only on one small local Facebook forum and this one. It is a great scoop and it will allow me to expand to some deeper waters now.

      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.
