Thank you so much 🙂 I appreciate that 🙂

I'm waiting to start "Serious Detecting" It's along time. 

Best Wishes and good luck 😎

It is such a silence again for a long time now and nothing from Fisher and AQ. What a shame, decided to buy a TDI beachhunter but it is too late now cause you can't find any, it is gone as well. No good waterproof deep PI right now. I have to stick to my old trusty sea hunter awhile now.

I've not completely given up hope on First Texas, though I have mentally put this into the "next year" category. I'm fortunate to have many detecting interests, and other detectors, to keep me plenty busy. And frankly I'm well past the "waiting for new detectors" stage of my life. I'm amazed at the power I have now, compared to my first White's Coinmaster 4 in 1974. An old TR, no ground balance, no discrimination. By comparison we have vastly more detecting power at our fingertips, and frankly, we have hit a bit of a wall in performance. It's not like the Impulse will radically change anything. As far as I'm concerned it's just a finely tuned TDI in a better package. So while I'll be very pleased if First Texas finally gets it out the door made right, it's not like it's some long awaited Holy Grail of detecting. I'm talking full PI depth with true discrimination. That machine has yet to be made.

So sit back, relax, and wait a while. After all this time and wait, First Texas may as well take all the extra time needed to get the machine completely right. They really can't afford, after all this, to release a detector that is not problem free. I was happy with how my Impulse performed for me on my locations, and simply want the detector to be made more reliable, and in a proper physical package. Despite what in my view has been a very botched process, I still wish First Texas success in getting this and other new detector models to market. No more ancient models with new coats of paint, please.

If that's India, why isn't he speaking English?  Traditional languages are generally not used much there. India is said to be the second largest English speaking country.

Over the past 21 years I've worked with slews of Indian people, and when they get together they are typically speaking their native tongue, which really depends upon which part of India they're from.  Due to their former British rule they are taught English in school, so yeah I'm surprised he'd make the YouTube video in his native language versus English as it would certainly reach a lot more people.

      Well,gents this is suppose to be  a very deep pulse beach & surf detector.Not much information on this beast.So here's some pictures. William

      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.

      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!

      Hi guys!
      I watched the treasuretalk on youtube for couple of days ago and Myer's metal detecting confirmed he is going to bring in AQ final edition in the shop next month in july! just wanted to ask others if it is true and anybody heared anything about it,Thanks!

      Walked down to the local watering hole; brackish water bay tributary, pretty well cleared out over the years but a bit trashy with bits of iron. Ran delay 7, sensitivity 7, threshold 4, volume 8, ATS 6.5, reject 6; mostly all metal but some tones and mute to check targets.
      Initial reaction is that it is a little easier to hear the edge modulation with the 8 inch than with the big coil. I walked away from several targets that were very pronounced double tones then had a more subtle edge that I told myself to walk away … but dig to verify. That was the little fish hook. The odd shaped washer, to the right of the fish hook, fooled me; it sounded pretty good in all metal and in tones. The rest of it is all non-ferrous. Some of the small targets fell through the scoop several times before I finally capture them and got them in the pouch. This set up finds fairly small targets well. Tones seem to be more pronounced to me with this coil than with the big coil with some similar settings, yet I think I still hear iron better in all metal than in tones ... maybe some setting tweeks would change that around but I'm pretty happy in all metal.
      I did have an interference issue. A boat about 100 feet from me fired up and the AQ talked and talked. Stepped through the frequencies and no help there. I was shallow enough the detector head was above water so I went deep where the detector electronics were well under water and, surprise to me, that did not help either. Dropping the sensitivity down to 2 made it usable. Once he lowered the boat lift, backed off and motored away I could turn the sensitivity back up and hunt with a very quiet AQ.
      Did have a great blue heron land on the beach and walk into the water. Got about 30 feet away from me so I stayed still and watched it turn its head looking for minnows, catch and eat them. After a few minutes it walked around the beach corner towards the boat lift then flew about 2 hundred yards down the water.
      A good afternoon in the water.
