It is well known, the longer it is the better it is ....  There hasn't been a Marketing launch yet, the day it happens, at that point you can really talk about the hype ... I would try to do my be

Not to spill the beans, But you will want everything that comes with the New World AQ,  Thanks to Alexandre and The Team at First Texas. They have been watching this forum and addressed every detail. 

Knowledge on how to set the AQ up properly for the circumstances at hand. Knowledge on how water classifies targets on the slope and in the water. Knowledge of the differences each beach you hunt have

No company is in business for their health and all have to make a profit.

 If I make a PI detector do I want to sell one are do I want to sell hundreds. I can’t make a profit even selling one out of a hundred then why bother with a PI .

 If it’s some great detectors out there for under 1500. for land and beach then anything above that in price will be a hard sell.

 You can always find some willing to go for the high dollar ones but again it’s volume of sales that pays the bills.

Looking world wide I think they will have no problem in the $2500 range. They have years of R&D as well as the only PI that accurately discriminates iron. I see a well used out of warranty gpx 5000 here for sale $2600. It took me less than a month to pay for my first AQ and nearly the same for my second. There may be a third once the new version shows up. Good luck everybody and stay safe from the virus !

I don't think the price is out of wack either. $2500-$2800 I think is max though. I have always believed that these two conditions will always make you money. 1) Have a real, solid, truthful product. 2. Have a great customer relations/service. I feel the AQ is more than qualified in it's capabilities, but fails in the customer relations. I don't really remember when it became fashionable to ignore talking with your customers, maybe 30 years ago, or maybe when lawyers scared manufacturers and told them to do a "say nothing" approach to business, but it's wearing a bit thin with me. I remember when White's was a very easy company to do business with... great customer support and really good prizes for find reporting. I never had a Tesoro but having that warranty and low prices kept them in business as well. But something changed and now we are out of the loop. How can someone buy a product when you don't know what it costs, when it will be available, and if it will be reliable? I feel real bad for anyone on the list that is waiting for a machine.

I just want to hear more about their new single frequency and multi frequency.  

I heard wireless.

Weatherproof, waterproof?

Good balance?

Coil selection or compatibility with existing coils?


I may need to sell off some detectors!

There isn't just one company profile, let's look at the jewelry world.

You can find companies that make a lot of low cost gold rings, but you can also find companies that make high quality and expensive jewelry in weak quantity.

But for all that, the turnover is higher at CARTIER in Paris than in the WALMART jewelry stores.

Here Cartier USD 45 000

And there’s probably $40,000 profit on that ring......😗

will the definitive model arrive in Europe?

Sorry this ring definitive model is a little too expensive for me at 45000$... Unless CARTIER offers special discounts for detectorprospector forum members... 😄

      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.

      It appears Fisher has shipped at least one AQ Limited off to Australia.

      Went out to 2 different beaches for a mix of GPX and AQ hunting. Tony repaired my headphones for the AQ and also made me a spare set , along with 2 short cables, so I could zip tie the short cable to the machine, and so I would not break the M8 connector. The short cable also converts the M8 to an M12, a more robust connector going to the headphones. So, for the first AQ hunt in a while, I chose my “spot” to see if I could find any low conductors where the GPX had previously run the 18” DD coil. I did not find any coins in that area, but did find little bits of melted copper and lead. So, I ventured out a bit and found the silver Washington quarter,Mercury dime and all the rest of the other coins.  I Later met up with a forum member - Jim in ma, at one of his spots. Thanks for the invite up there. 👍 I used the GPX to see if I could replicate the depth and coin count that I have had previously at my silver beach. This beach was smaller in the dry sand area, but the EMI was considerably less. The sand structure was different too, as I did not hit a clay layer or any of the other layers I was used to. But the principle was the same, and I did score a decent number of coins including the Mercury,  silver war nickel & .925 ring. All in all, it was a fun time out.

      Fisher contacted me for a purchase of an AQ and was offering the 8" coil. I passed on the AQ since I already have two. Anyone purchased the 8" and what is your opinion?
