LE.JAG ... I would have one question .. is it possible to market AQUA-Pulse and TERRA-Pulse in the same time period ..?

Another question would be when will I start pre-orders for AQUA-Pulse and TERRA-Pulse detectors?

I admit to TERRA-pulse is a detector that is personally interested in me ...
 
 

the first to go out AQua

the Terra should not be long
it's the same platform, some components that change
+ the facade / the rest is of the programming ..

Hi, it's the war of marks, lol but it's not a problem the level of performance and separation gold / iron reaches such a level, that it is worth all the bulletproof vests  :)

The Aqua Manta has finally arrived in the form of the new Fisher Impulse AQ. The Manta has been officially named the Fisher Impulse AQ, a development that happened later in this very thread. It has al

Hi I see that there is a lot of questions I will not answer all / confidentiality clause oblige .. some precision all the same the cable outlet on the coil is not an aesthetic fantasy ..

LE.JAG, 

I have a lot of nails on my beach.  As they corrode and become needle like they the give off both the low grunt sound and a high conductor sound. When you silence the iron on the Impulse does it silence both the low and high sound?

 

Thanks,

Tim

in all metals the sound is mono-tone
  deep targets better mark the difference
sounds light and symmetrical = often gold

in saturation (sound too strong) the difference is more difficult
((it is necessary to raise the coil / to no longer be in saturation))

but iron, especially in length, like nails
give a double sound / very mark

the loss between / all metals and rejection
is very weak with AQ // everything depends on the sand
in white sand with normal mineralization
about 5%

LE.JAG, will both coils be available to buy when the AQua starts shipping later this year? In my case, I do want both sizes.  I have an area that is very rocky that has produce my biggest diamond rings.  And the 8 inch coil would be best coil for this area.

Hi Terry,

No, I think we'll have to wait a bit for the 8 '

but, there is a new mode that should give you a few pounds
while waiting for the 8 '
I can not say more ...
?

I used an  AQ prototype last October under huge transmission lines - quiet as a mouse in all metal.

Did you get a chance to try it in the other modes

I tried them all at one time or another, I was finding aluminum scrap at this site - probably a result of the power line construction. I am pretty sure I was using either multitone or mute - I am not certain, I was not concentrating on the power lines, just trying it in the nice deep sand..  

The machine I had for a few days in October was a prototype and the production version is supposed to be refined in many ways. All metal is inherently quieter than any other mode, it has to do with the way information from more than one channel is used. It is a characteristic of multi channel PI detectors.

I'd love to compare this machine to my TDI at the beach.  But it most likely won't be available before August.   I know there is a lot of discussion as to depth and that it will detect a nickel at 17".  This compared to my TDI at 16", but the TDI has a 12" coil and the AQ will have the 12 1/2" coil.  Size will also increase the depth capabilities.  So that being said, it would be very interesting to see, comparing the two detectors using identical coil dimensions (the old saying apples to apples) .  I know there will be many more advantages of the AQ, pulse delay, iron features etc. but coil sizes need to be the same for a truthful analysis.

the difference will be greater
if you have the target at 16 '
AQ will be at 20 '

the difference is stronger on low conductors (gold!)
thanks to the 7us under 16 volts

silence allows you to go further
I detected many gold rings
who was just a breath
  I think the TDI is able to see some
  but they are drowning in the noise
.....

not to mention that tdi are rarely 10us (real)
the best was pulscan 14.4 volts first generation
number from 1 to 200
the real copy of the goldscan 5

mass production to a little lost in performance ....

for AQ the specifications are very strict
to lose nothing .. / and especially the starting point is better !

 

++++ please
ask questions on the forum
I can not answer any mp / takes too much time ...

I do not have a specific release date
no price
(((and if I knew / I could not say)))
and to choose the AQ and TR testers
it's Fisher who manages ....

Thnaks

If anybody knows the answers to your questions, they aren’t able to answer them yet. It takes time to bring a design to market.  

All will be revealed in due course.

      Is there anyone using the machine or is the forum blocking out post 
      I saw Joe recent u tube videos. But that’s it
      i herd there close to 30 machines out there. Makes me wonder

      Got a desert trip planned in a couple of weeks and was wondering if anyone (Steve especially) has had a chance to test out the AQ for nuggets?  I got mine at the end of September and it has already paid for itself in beach finds, including my first platinum ring ever, a 25.2 gram monster.
      I know it's not designed for prospecting, but was thinking about taking along it to play around.  I did air test a 2.0 gram gold/quartz nugget with Pulse Delay of 7, max sensitivity and minimum ATS and it was a solid hit at 5" and broke the threshold at 7".  For each 1/2 increase of Pulse Delay, I lost about an inch or so.
      If anyone has field experience, I would like to know your results.  I will relay actual findings (if any) after I get back.
      Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

      So the tides were decent enough on my days off to try again for some gold with the AQ or GPX. Since my beaches will not relent with the sanding in, I decided to try another strategy. Day one was split between the AQ for low tide and the GPX for deep silver. With the beach heavily sanded at low tide, all I could do was get some junk jewelry with the AQ. The GPX scored 3 silvers using the monster 18"DD Detech coil. It must have been a sight watching this guy struggle with that coil while holding a side stick and a big spade shovel 😄 The GPX wins that day. But... Day two was raining, so the GPX loses by default ... tough luck GPX (needs to be waterproof, hint, hint) So all day long I used the AQ at another beach which has a decent low tide. But as usual around here, it was sanded in more than ever. Low tide produced very few targets, just 3 zinc cents, some small junk jewelry and bottle caps. It looked like a wasted trip. But I wandered around all over, from high to low tide looking for a break. I knew that the rings were out of reach by the level of the sand against a breaker wall, so I decided to look for small jewelry in hopes of finding a gold stud or even a charm. No luck until I hit a small slope. By this time I had put gold out of my mind and just wanted to dig for the rest of the day. I used the all metal mode exclusively, just to boost the number of targets. I did get a lot of iron and bottle caps but then it happened. I got gold!!!!! No, not Joe or Mitchel kind of gold, 🙄 but more like anything I can get will do gold. So a small prayer necklace pendant shows up. I could tell it was gold right away. 10k it is...my FIRST gold with the AQ. I could now relax. So I started to grid this area carefully and a little while later I got a hit and could see a small bit of the target I thought was going to be a small silver earring.  But it turned out to be a 10k diamond studded Ankh symbol. Looks like a cross with a loop at the top. It's used in ancient Egypt, representing the symbol of life. Gorgeous little piece and my SECOND gold with the AQ. I was in shock. So I start to look around as I am getting back up and about 3 feet from that target I can visually see pieces of a gold rope chain sticking out of the sand. In my moment of professionalism, I tried every combination on the AQ to better find chains......... Actually I just grabbed that thing as fast as I could 😂 So I haven't tried the AQ to see if it actually would pick the chain up or not. But technically not my THIRD gold of the day since it is .925 with 1/12 10K overlay. I think they call that Vermeil. My bad day turned real good, real fast. I hunted a while longer and called it a day.  Thank you AQ for hitting that first gold target and making me stay in that area!

      I received my AQ yesterday afternoon.  I put the battery on charger and about an hour later it was fully charged.  After some scrambling around to get out of my apartment I hit the beach on an incoming tide.  I went to an area where I had seen beach PI holes before and decided to give it a try.  As you can see it was not a productive location except for the eCig cartridges which I got 3 of them.  They were deep and the sound was high.
      I started out in everything preset as the Quick Start suggests.  I didn't know what it was going to sound like but it is a higher pitch than I normally listen to.  The waves were making some noise as I was mostly in ankle deep but sometimes knee deep water.  The headphones were comfortable for the 3 hours I was out.  I didn't have a coin for the first 1.5 hours.  I've never had so many bottle caps but I don't hunt this area of the beach.  My deepest target was about 20 inches and was the bottom of the can.  I couldn't find one target at 24" and still digging.  At the end of 2 hours I decided to 'experiment' with going down a notch on frequency delay.  Then on the way back to my start I switched to tone mode.  That was when I heard a 'weird' low tone and when I dug it it was a dime.
      When I first started I had put my cell phone in my top pocket and on the 3rd dig hole it dropped in mud.  Now I have a finicky cell phone that doesn't want to charge properly.  I ordered another BLU phone to replace it. 
      When I put the two shafts together and tried the length I thought it was going to be too long.  It would be if it was a heavy unit but I was able to use the first notch with the push out pin but this would not be good for my wife.  I would suggest that the pin be moved on the lower shaft and also make it shorter.
      It is going to be a learning curve to find a beach that is PI 'friendly' which means that it holds deep jewelry/gold and not just deep trash.

      Low water at the local hole today. Low enough that I had wet sand to do some testing with. I can call fish hooks well in the wet sand in all metal ... but not well in the water where I don't have the same ability to change coil speed like over the wet sand. Got lots of lead today, not too many fish hooks other than those attached to rigs with lead or with brass swivels. A couple of deep nickles, one really deep spark plug and one junk child's ring. Was chest deep over a target that sounded really good ... and the battery died. Didn't pack the second one because I had to take care of some other things today, so it was my alarm clock to head home ... and enough of a work out in the shape I'm in. A bit sore this evening, but it is a good sore.
      Cheers,

      It took me 4 short hunts to finally run the battery down.  Total run time was approximately 11 hours and 35 minutes.  That sure beat the 3 1/2 from the factory battery.  I ran about 95% of the time in AM and only switched to Tone or Mute to check targets. Running mostly presets on the other settings.  The audio of certain targets is starting to become inbedded in my brain now.  Nickels are easy to recognize now.
