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.

      Hunted a few hours with a good friend today. Half of the hunt was in All Metal and the other half in Tones Mode.  I dug everything today trying to learn the machine. Those Corona caps became predictable in Tones Mode. All Metal seems to run a bit more stable and punches really deep. I originally thought the piece of a bracelet I recovered was junk until the 10K stamp was pointed out. No sign of the rest of it in the area, but Ill take it.

      This is an update on the lower shaft that snapped into two pieces on a Sunday morning wet sand hunt on April 25.  I list events in a timeline.
      Sunday April 25 about 10:00 AM the lower shaft broken into two pieces after 30-45 minutes of detecting in the wet beach surf.
      Monday April 26 in the morning I emailed First Texas with pictures of the broken shaft and received a RA from FT and shipped it back to FT Monday afternoon April 26.  I posted a message on the Impulse AQ Facebook page pictures of the broken shaft an received a reply from Russ Balbriona that said “Hello Joe- Russ from Fisher here. Email me russ@frsttx.com. I'll get you taken care of.”  I also posted on here at DetectorProspector a post with pictures and received a response from Alexandre that said “Thank you for you feedback.  We are ready with the Mechanical Team to understand and solve the problem.  A lower rod will be sent to you in exchange, and we are studying the phenomenon.  Tests are already carried out internally with high lateral pressure, we will continue in this direction to understand.  I contacted the whole team when I san the message today.
      Thursday April 29 at 10:23 First Texas received the broken shaft which was signed for by someone named Mocosta.
      Friday April 30 at 3:47 (on the beach detecting with my Equinox) I received a call from First Texas.  At 4:05 I received an email from Felix at First Texas that said “We just received your lower tube and is being analyzed by our engineers/quality and will call you on Monday to follow up with you – stay tuned.” And that my voice mail was full.  (it did have one 22 second message about my car warranty in it)
      Monday May 3 I called Felix early as I had an appointment later that day and he said Engineers/quality would decide IF they would replace the shaft under warranty.
      Today Monday May 10, 16 days after the shaft broke, 15 days after First Texas was made aware of the break with pictures and responded to me, and 12 days after First Texas had the broken shaft in their possession.
      So the update is “there is no update”.

      Just received my AQ last week. First two hunts at a worked out beach scored some really deep silver and some old coins.  Most hunters can't find a target at this beach, just ask OBN everybody hates this place. Then I tried another heavily hunted beach today for the third hunt. Scored two 14K rings and a crusty 10K pendant. I thought the pendant was a mini sinker at first. Today's Gold was very deep and the AQ hit solid on them. I'd still be there if the battery didn't die.  I don't believe my Excal would have found them today.
      I love my AQ

      Had an awesome month using the Fisher AQ on the low tide wet sand slopes. Ran the AQ mostly in "tone" mode but did spend some time in "all metal" when trash targets were not too bad..All I can say is that I love this machine! My trusty Sov. GT is starting to collect dust now and the AQ has become my go to detector and the GT my "just in case" back up.
      I started out April with a very crusty 10k class ring. Soaked it in CLR over night and removed all the crust, here's the kicker though, as I was sitting on my couch looking through my loop at the ring trying to figure out the date on the class ring and other details, I fumbled the ring in my fingers and it dropped directly onto my tile floor and shattered into pieces! I spent about 15 mins carefully gathering the pieces along with the Ruby stone that was in the center. I was going to scrap the ring anyway but I did want to get a picture of it after clean up before I did. There is a date under the eagle, its very hard to see but it looks like "1955".
      The rest of the rings are 14k, with one having CZ stones and the one on the right with real diamonds. Also found what look like two gold tooth caps, acid tested good for 18k. The last gold item of the month was a 22.1 gram 18k (750) gold Rosary found way out in the negative low tide wet sand plateau. I searched around the area thoroughly for the cross and the rest of the beads but had no luck.
      Also an honorable mention on the silvers I found, The silver heart bracelet is Tiffany & Co and goes for $275 new https://www.tiffany.com/jewelry/bracelets/return-to-tiffany-love-tiffany-blue-heart-tag-bead-bracelet-GRP09904/
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
      Also found a silver Gucci stud ear ring,  a pair goes for $245 https://www.gucci.com/us/en/pr/jewelry-watches/silver-jewelry/silver-earrings/silver-interlocking-g-earrings-p-356289J84000702?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1_Ofj-qu8AIVcz6tBh3eJwziEAQYAiABEgKm0vD_BwE 
      So gold totals for the month are:
      10k- 5.8 grams
      14k- 20.3 grams
      18k-22.1 grams
      Tooth Caps (18k) - 3.5 grams
      Now onto May!
      Thanks for looking & Happy Hunting!

      I have sent an e-mail to Felix at FT with these pictures.  Hopefully they just send me a new rod ASAP.  This is what happens when you hunt wet sand and California surf.  Or it could just have been a poor quality made rod.  Hoping for that latter as the wet sand California surf is the only place I have to use the Impulse AQ and don't want to have to worry about this again.
