Now ... how should I reply?  haha

Wait for the summer to happen!

Just the time to see if the final type will appear on the table.

In a way or another, thanks to the italian dealer I'm in partnership with, I'll get one to test and to produce some Footages.

If the meat will be of some value for me, the item will stay there in my home.Otherwise...Friends like before.

And as Joe, I too enjoy two AQ’s in my stable. I am very satisfied with the results from both my machines. Just my (2) cents worth so to speak. I think the problem with the AQ May lie in several facto

I still love mine, a good time to pick up another. 27 gold with the machine I got from Rick last year covered the price of both. Got to Love this Hobby, and the " Fisher Impulse AQ" ......... Come on

Fisher and I reached an agreement - they decided to proceed with production of AQ Limited units but felt that it would be best if they dealt directly with the buyers. Since this was a change from

I got one as well.  But I had to pass for the reasons I mentioned previously.  I am wondering .... what if people don’t like the price on the new machine think Fisher would still let loose of some limited ones which obviously won’t have upgrades?  Maybe Thomas or Joe can tell us how that 8” compares depth and noise wise in the water?  Joe you still got a “shut my mouth” rule?  Ya know I didn’t ask.... but I wonder what the price of the limited might be with the 8” coil over the standard.... or if they would even do that?

I got one also and I already bought two haha. They must be going down the old list. That’s good though I think.  Hi Dew, Joe has his grandkids down so he is off the radar a bit. I’m sure he might take a min to check in just not regular. I would call Fisher and ask them. I am not sure how they are selling them. The way my mail read was $1499 for the AQ, one battery, phones and standard coil and $299 for the additional 8” coil. Both coils work well and have there place as you know. I think I saw a post by someone here using his 8” coil and said that it was deep. I always am scared to give depth in inches as I water hunt mostly and i use 3 scoops deep or whatever. Maybe I’m off a bit so it’s a guessing game sorta. Anyway the other guy says it’s deep. Joe loaned me his to give a shot but I have not done any air test with it. With all the gold down your way, I would think you could buy the limited and get it paid for by the time the newer machine shows up and then decide what to do. What I can say now, is that I am very happy with my AQ and noise is not a problem for me. Good luck to everybody.

Some weeks ago Fisher decided that the remaining production of AQ Limited units should be sold directly by them. As part of the agreement under which Fisher and I documented ending my role as sole dealer of the AQ Limited, I forwarded to them my list of registered potential buyers. On the same spreadsheet were the details on those who had asked to be withdrawn from the list as well as those who had already purchased AQ’s.

The agreement was satisfactory to to me and included compensation to me for providing the prospective buyers list and confirmed my ongoing role as a Fisher dealer.

What I 'meant' was is this my opportunity to outline to Fisher the problems I had with mine and the reason why it cost me money?  Should I tell them about their customer service and ... I'm quite an unhappy, unsold former customer and I feel they never heard or addressed my complaints.  

It is obvious that the new AQ team at Fisher has not read this forum.  They should.

To that point Rick, I had to reiterate with them via a text inquiry that I had asked you to previously line me off the list as it became apparent that the limited application nature of the Impulse Limited Edition was not going to be a fit for me and I wouldn’t be providing them any useful feedback as a result.   So they obviously didn’t fully comprehend your instructions regarding the spreadsheet.

No reply to my text response back to the text THEY initiated.  But two days later got an email from them making the same AQ LE purchase proposal they texted me previously.  Not going to waste my time responding at this point.  But the whole thing smacks of minimum effort and borderline incompetence/cluelessness in a desperate attempt to dump unsold Limited Edition stock.  This, in my mind, dims any hopes of pursuing a future land-based iteration of the Impulse emanating from this non-professional clown show, to be quite frank. Not impressed.

I just gave them an ear full by email!

I got an immediate email back saying that management would be made aware.  We'll see.

Chase I think they were just dotting their eyes to ensure those who might want one of the limited in lieu of or in addition to the production model.   There were some who had waited a long time and may feel the lower price tag still makes it worth getting.  I do believe they might have gotten a few more out.  But that as they say is history.  IF they really want to sell them I still hear some overseas guys want them.

They said at the very beginning that they wanted input from the users. Where better to get that information than the forums? It would be crazy to not be interested in what people have to say about the product.

Nobody asked me any questions about the list. I was given no information regarding how they planned to use it to market the remaining AQ LTD production.

The spreadsheet was clearly divided into prospective customers (thank you all) - “withdrawn” prospective customers - and customers who had purchased a unit.

      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.

      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.
