I do hope Russ was wrong on the final versions pricing. The best info was a July release, possibly. I'd hoped for more details and a unveiling ...... Never happened.... Sorry.

It is what it is. But I'm looking forward to a few days after my birthday in June. When TT will have a very special guest. Maybe he will have more insight...

Man,,some disappointment,,,The Price is way high,i hope as Joe said Russ gave us wrong information about that.I was at that live show and wrote some questions but nobody answered them,one question was about the battery,are they going to implement Joe's battery system with many hours of hunt? when he mentioned they have modified the mechanical parts of the AQ i think he means those cables sticking out of the backside(maybe)I have seen a picture showing Joe testing final version that they have moved the headphone connection to the backside of the control box(display),so now there s two connections on the backside of the control box as some other detectors.For me the main issue is the price,so many years waiting.....

I passed on the AQ limited when my number came up opting to wait for the final product. But now I'm not so sure I want it for that price. If I lived close to the beach and I was only after gold rings I could see getting it. But I use my PI for gold nuggets, relics and beach work. The AQ isn't going to work for that. My hope is the land version will be more versatile, then I could see spending 3k for it.

Didn't watch it but some interesting comments in this thread. My thought on price is that if the price talk is MSRP, then there will be some discount on that for street price. Would have been nice to have better battery info. If it is that last version of batteries that were being discussed with drop in rechargeable cells and a 5 hour run time, then there is still an issue with having to carry a second set of batteries and keeping them dry when in the water or trekking back to fetch the second set.

As was mentioned by Cabo Chris in the other thread, it may not take long in shallow water hunting to pay for it, even if priced a little on the high side.

For me the question is do you enjoy detecting with it? I am having a lot of fun with it and thoroughly enjoying it.

$3500 MSRP with a standard 15% discount to MAP = $2975

Your post sums it up for me also, abensen. I’m not looking to spend that much for a dedicated beach detector. There are even fewer rumors regarding the Impulse Gold, however, so I’ll not hold my breath. But there certainly continues to be an opening for an alternative to the $3299 SDC 2300. The new GPX 6000 came in way higher than I was hoping, so First Texas can still get this right with the Impulse Gold at least.

Passed on my opportunity as well for the same reason. If I had been seeing reports about the Limited killing it on gold I might be tempted but the reviews have been good- not great for the most part. When questioned about gold jewelry finds many users have said that much of the gold that they had found with the Limited could have been found with their other detectors as well. I'm also concerned about the AQ's reliability because of so many issues with the Limited.

We'll see what the final price winds up being but 3K? Similar to KOB's thinking I'd rather buy 3 more TDI BeachHunters.

      Received my catalog from Kellyco today and they proudly announced that they are looking forward to offering the Fisher Impulse AQ in 2022.  The write up that Kellyco gave made it sound like there was substantial discrimination with minimal loss of detection depth with the AQ.  We shall see.

      We have been told on several occasions that it was impossible to export the Aqua limited outside of the United States and now on the official page of Fisher I find this publication.  How is this possible?

      Was in Myrtle Beach for most of a week. Got the AQ well into the chop on this trip. I stayed in cuts between sand bars and the beach so the waves were not terrible and I was able to stay on my feet. Ran all metal all the time. It ran mostly quiet with ATS on 7, Sensitivity on 4, delay on 10. If I ran delay less than 10, each step lower got a good bit more noisy. ATS lower than 7 did not make for good hunting either. Still left lots of adjustment should I venture beyond the sand bar. Had the big coil on, did not take the 8 inch on this trip. The waves did make for an effort controlling the coil, but made it through without mishap. Did not go out detecting on Thursday when Elsa went through. Elsa seemed to mostly push some sand up on the beach in the area we were staying; that made the bottoms of the cuts softer than they were early in the week. That said, On Friday in a soft bottomed cut, had a fairly faint but repeatable signal that after four scoops became very loud and I got it on the fifth scoop. Nice little 2.3 gram 14K gold pendant.

      Sorry, I can't seem to find my previous thread on this subject. To recap, my AQ wouldn't power up, so, it was sent in to Fisher for repair. They claimed that it was the battery. I had my doubts, as I had tried a second battery with the same results. Anyway, they claimed it was only the battery and sent it back to me with a new one. On a side note, I had just sent the electronics back to them, and kept all the rods, cuff, and charger to save on shipping costs. Well, it seems they want EVERYTHING sent back when they do a repair. That's a first for me. They even told me that you shouldn't remove the arm cuff at all! It's something that they have to do, and not something the customer is capable of as it might damage the cable inside the rod.  Good grief, what a design. Anyway, when I got it back, I noticed that the cable from the battery to the pod had been changed. Hmmm, I wonder if that was really the problem and not the battery. Otherwise, why change it? Oh, you think they might have sent a new and improved one? Think again. I didn't think they could make that design any worse, but, they managed. It's even longer that the original, and wimpier IMO. And what is the problem with using 90 degree connectors to reduce the risk of cable damage? Well, it works now, so, I guess I can't complain too much, in fact, the new battery is a lot better than the original. The last hunt, I got over 3 1/2 hours on it and still had a green light! That's definitely an improvement. Now, if I can just find something good that my other detectors couldn't find!
