  1. Personally for my own situation, as an Old beach walker (over 70) who has been walking the beaches forever, I don't need a battery that lasts for eight-ten hours. I like the 2-1/2 -3 hour battery pack, where you can buy two and change them out when and if you want to continue to do an extended walk. I'm one of those lucky guys who live close to a beach. I don't have to cram everything into a one day eight hour hunt. I will never get that machine in over three feet deep anyway so the depth limit of the AQ limited is of no concern to me. I like the price of the AQ limited, ya, I'm cheap. Who knows how long I have left on this earth anyway, so $1499 sounds better to me than $2,500 $3,000 or whatever Fisher wants. The AQ limited is just the right machine for what I want it to do for me on my beaches and lakes. I hope everybody else does wait for the new and improved version and gets off the list. Just my two cents worth. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  2. I like your design Joe! But Steve, I already don't have any hair to pull out (I'm bald now) waiting on the current list for the AQ limited! Now you want to float another list idea and give Rick a heart attack in the process!! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  3. So where are you imagining the headphone cable connecting too? I don't see that to clearly. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  4. Ahhh! The story of the The Three Bears. You can't please everyone. I guess we will just have to get em all! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  5. Boker, Welcome to the forum. I'm in florence, so you aren't too far from me. I'll give you a contact through personal message. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  6. That headphone cable really looks like it's made from some stiff material. Not prone to too much re-directing away from the rear to the front. Plus you already say it's not that long. I like Joe's pigtail headphone cable rework where you can secure the cable better with rubber banding. Thanks for the pictures Mark. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  7. I'll have to watch for those here in Oregon. We are also on a major river (Siuslaw) that was also used for floating logs to port. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  8. I think if we all pitch in we can rotate the damn thing around all night long! Can you sleep fifty people in one of those places? GaryC/Oregon Coast
  9. So the last I heard on these past posts there were 8 sold but not all delivered. By now all eight should have been delivered. Am I correct in thinking all eight are not going to be leaving feedback on this forum. I don't follow other forums, just this one. Is someone (who has an AQ in hand) posting finds, likes, dislikes, problems, concerns on the AQ limited on other forums. Seems Joe and Steve are all I have seen feedback on. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  10. Man Joe, your a regular Library of Congress. They didn't even lock their car door or roll the windows up. Great video. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  11. Phrunt, you need to get a chest holster for it! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  12. Thanks Joe, I remember that photo now. Nice to put the hunted place in prospective to the old photo. How deep was the silver ring? Thanks for the info. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  13. Joe, What kind of makeup is that bottom? Sand, mud or a mix and do you sink into it at all? Also are those losses coming from old docks or what along those reeds? Why would people be losing stuff in that area? Thanks for all the great videos and giving the great shots of the areas you are hunting. Good Stuff!!!! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  14. Those are tough pictures to see, but reality for a beach hunter. People coming into the hobby have this fantasy that every trip or even every other trip will bring jewelry and coins in abundance. You certainly have the persistence to come out on the positive side, eventually! Thanks for the posts. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  15. Ya, four ring days happen all the time!!! No way! You had a good day too! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  16. OK, Been in Oregon bout three years now. First two years were spent on getting my house in order and new additional garage built. Then came the Nox, waited on a list for months. Kept myself busy with my old X-Terra 705 until the Nox arrived but did not go out as much as I should have. Waiting for a new toy to arrive is not the thing to do, you lose your edge for hunting. Fast forward now to the waiting list for the AQ limited. This one is also driving me nuts. I watch the email daily hoping it's coming soon and follow this website for AQ tidbits. It's like the Nox all over again. I haven't gone hunting with my trusted Tesoro Sandshark P.I.for two years now and that's just not acceptable. Well today I jotted down a couple of pocket beaches I spotted driving up the coast a few months ago and decided to hit them at low tide. The first one I hunted with the Sandshark just at the waters edge where the water riverlets started to separate the mud. This is where most of the coins settled out. At high tide it's about three feet deep here. No gold but good to hear those crisp coin tones and the sinker was about another 12" deep. Decided to do the last beach with the Nox. Went down the steps, out about fifteen feet to a used fire pit/burnt area. First signal was a solid 12. The ring couldn't have been there very long because it wasn't more than three inches deep in soft sand. Nice 2.9 gram, not marked but acid tested 10K gold. Fake diamonds with pearlescent type stones. The gold is there, I just have to keep telling myself the will is there and get off my butt and quit watching my email. What will happen will happen for a reason. Persistence has always put gold and silver in the bag. This was a good day! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  17. Nice to know you have Rick as a Go Between! That's going to be a big plus in all the little problems we will all have down the road. Good to hear the quick response from the company. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  18. In Oregon permits are a fact of life. They are woven into the fabric of local clubs with city, county, state jurisdictions. Coming from California I have been a low profile hunter like so many others are here. Not asking a lot of questions while doing my hobby unless of course when it's on private or cultural land. Well that doesn't work here. You are going to be asked to see your permit some where some day, guaranteed! It's even worse being on the coast. You can hunt in "selected" State parks, only on the off season for tourists, with a permit. That leaves you the winter months. I'll take that but does put a damper on things a bit. I'm 60 miles from Eugene, they require you to have a city permit and you can't get it online. You have to go in person every year to the City Hall. Haven't done that yet, but mean to every year. Then every county up and down the coast requires a permit some online some not. At least the beaches belong to the public. High tide line to low tide line you are good. I've been here three years and still haven't learned all the ins and outs of this goofy state yet when it comes to my chosen hobby and the right to pursue it. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  19. Just because it's lab grown doesn't mean it doesn't have value, especially in that size! It's value I'm sure is going to be in its ring metal makeup. Not gold, I assume. A nice chunk of a ring though! Great find on both rings. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  20. I believe the first U.S. customer of Fisher to find Gold with the new AQ! Congratulations! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  21. Looks like a finial to hold a lamp shade on to a lamp. GaryC/Oregon Coast
