The Fisher Impulse AQ is a new pulse induction (PI) metal detector that will have a release date 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 greatly inhibit the depths attainable with VLF metal detectors. The new Impulse AQ is noted mainly for its discrimination capability that is unique among pulse induction metal detectors for its focus on jewelry range targets.

The Fisher Impulse AQ is expected to offer excellent depth and superb sensitivity to gold jewelry - the machine is highly optimized for finding gold rings in particular. The most anticipated feature is discrimination better than that currently offered on any other pulse induction metal detector. The discrimination is focused more on high value gold rings than coins, and may actually exclude many coins if enabled. This is not considered a problem for many serious beach hunters as a lot of time is wasted recovering coins under difficult conditions when gold rings are actually the desired target. The compact waterproof design and relatively light weight is also attracting attention. Other Impulse models are expected to be aimed at gold prospectors and possibly even the relic/coin detecting market.
