  1. The Fisher Impulse AQ Ltd is a new pulse induction (PI) metal detector released in June 2020. The Fisher Impulse AQ is the first of a series of new pulse induction detectors from Fisher Research. The AQ (AQua) is a waterproof model intended for beach and water hunting. Pulse induction technology offers extreme performance on highly mineralized beaches that inhibit the depths attainable with VLF metal detectors. The Impulse AQ has been released first as a limited production model (less than 100 units will be manufactured), the Impulse AQ Limited. This machine has a depth rating of three fe

  2. The Fisher Impulse Gold is new ground balancing pulse induction (GBPI) metal detector with probable availability in 2021. The new Fisher Impulse Gold is a gold prospecting model being developed alongside the Fisher Impulse AQ model, which is intended for beach and water hunting. The Impulse Gold is expected to offer excellent depth and superb sensitivity to small gold nuggets due to an very low pulse delay capability. The compact design and light weight is also attracting a lot of attention. A major design difference from the AQ model will be the inclusion of a ground balance control to d

  5. The White's GMX Sport metal detector was introduced in 2020 and was still in production when White’s closed up shop in that same year. That makes the GMX the last detector model to be designed and sold by White’s Electronics after 50 years in business. The GMX is a 48 kHz induction balance metal detector waterproof to ten feet aimed primarily at the jewelry detecting and gold prospecting markets. The GMX Sport is physically based on the White's MX Sport housing but otherwise is a Goldmaster 24K electronically. The control functions are identical the the Goldmaster 24K and the display screen is

  6. Completely new for Bounty Hunter for 2020, the Time Ranger Pro appears to be a Fisher F19 in sleek new clothing. This detector is available now. The Time Ranger Pro is a 19 kHz VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, and relic detecting. The Bounty Hunter Time Ranger Pro is a variant of the 19 kHz Fisher Gold Bug Pro and so it also is very good at gold prospecting. All coils for the Fisher Gold Bug Pro, F19, and Teknetics G2+ are compatible with the Time Ranger Pro.

  7. The White's XLT metal detector was introduced in 1994 as the Spectrum XLT. It was cosmetically refashioned as the XLT E-Series in 2001 and finally discontinued in 2010. The XLT is a 6.59 kHz VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, and relic detecting. "XLT® is high-performance simplicity and versatility at it’s best. High tech treasure hunting is as easy as turning on the XLT® and selecting a Turn-on and Go! program. With 5 expertly-designed programs to choose from, you’ve got virtually every kind of hunting covered. It’s easy to enhance a program, too, for your particular hu

  8. The Tarsacci MDT 8000 metal detector was introduced in late 2018 and is still in production. It is a selectable frequency metal detector aimed primarily at beach detecting at this time but that may find applications in relic detecting and other types of detecting. The Tarsacci MDT 8000 allows the operator to choose between one of four operating frequencies - 6.4, 9, 12, and 18 kHz. Tarsacci is a new U.S. based company just getting off the ground , founded by Dimitar Gargov. Dimitar worked previously at Fisher Labs and is credited with being a major force in the development of the Fisher G

  9. A new metal detector trademark registered by Minelab on July 30th, for release in spring 2021. Very little is known about this new detector other than the GPX 6000 name, leading to speculation this is a follow up to the popular Minelab GPX 5000. It does appear to have a detachable battery and wireless Bluetooth headphone capability according to FCC information at the thread below. The FCC website also provided the picture below of what could be the GPX 6000 in profile. The User Manual and photos are slated for release on December 20 on the FFC website. Forum thread on subject

  10. The White's V3i metal detector was introduced in 2009 and was still in production when White’s closed up shop in 2020. The V3i is a VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, relic detecting, saltwater beach detecting, and gold prospecting. The White's V3i is a multifrequency detector that can also run at one of several single frequencies: 2.5, 7.5, and 22.5 kHz. The V3i was originally released as the White's Spectra Vision or simply White's Vision. Due to a name conflict with another company the name was changed to White's Spectra V3. The original Vision and V3 models both had

  12. The White's TDI SL metal detector was introduced in 2011 and was still in production when White’s closed up shop in 2020. It is a pulse induction (PI) metal detector aimed primarily at relics, gold prospecting, and beach detecting. "The TDI SL provide serious detectorists with affordable pulse power. Initially developed to meet the demands of gold prospectors searching for extremely small and deep nuggets, the TDI has evolved into a detector that has proven itself as an effective detector for relic hunting, beach hunting and, under the right conditions, even coin hunting. Many of the surf

  13. The Rutus Alter 71 was introduced in 2017 and is still in production. The Alter 71 is a VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, relic detecting plus gold prospecting. The Nokta/Makro Impact is a "selectable frequency" detector that lets you select one frequency to use from several options. The Alter 71 frequency adjustable between 4.4kHz and 18.4kHz in steps of 0.2kHz. There does not appear to be a Rutus distributor in the U.S. at this time (Dec 2018) but enough of these detectors are finding their way to the U.S. to be listed here. The price as listed in U.S. dollars is approxima

  14. The Minelab X-Terra 705 metal detector was introduced in 2009 and is still in production. The X-Terra 705 is a selectable frequency VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, and relic detecting. The X-Terra models are unique in that they sense the coil attached to the detector, and then match the detector frequency to the coil. Coils are made in 3 kHz, 7.5 kHz, and 18.75 kHz versions. The standard X-Terra 705 comes with a 9" round concentric 7.5 kHz coil, good for general purpose metal detecting. The alternative Minelab X-Terra 705 Gold comes instead with an 18.75 kHz 6" x 10" DD co

  15. The Fisher Gemini-3 metal detector was introduced in 1988 and is still in production. It is worth mentioning that the Gemini-3 is a direct descendent of the 1938 Fisher Metallascope or "M-Scope", the first ground penetrating metal detector to receive a patent. The Gemini-3 is a "two-box" metal detector that is designed for finding large objects at depth. Two box detectors are not sensitive to items much smaller than a baseball, but can detect large items like a 55 gallon drum or water main to depths exceeding ten feet. Two box detectors are a favorite of the classic "treasure hunter" but are m
