  1. I've never been able to distinguish a soft signal from a .01 gram nugget from a deep signal. How does a deep signal sound? Bill
  2. WOW, what a great price, but this old man just can't swing the GPZ 7000 anymore and I'm waiting for something that's alot lighter. Should sell FAST! Bill
  3. Gerry is the best dealer in the USA. I've bought several detectors and taken 4 classes from him...each time I've learned alot and found gold each time. No way I would have done as well without his training class. Bill
  4. phrunt, Do you think we'll be able to change out the plug and use our older GPX 5000 coils...ML, NF & CT that some of us have sitting in the closet?🤔 Bill
  5. Gerry, thanks for taking the time to answer my Axiom questions today and I really appreciate your honesty and being my dealer for 20+ years. I've bought several detectors over the years and you have always helped me make the right choice. Please place me on your Axion Pre Order list with the military discount. Thanks again, Bill
  6. Hey Steve, while reviewing the iron check feature I took a look at the Axiom manual: Note: Iron Check is a conservative function. To help ensure Axiom does not misidentify a good target as iron, the iron tone (buzz) will only activate on strong signals. Examples: 3" nail to a depth of about 5" and 3/4" boot nail to a depth of about 2". Steel bottle caps will typically not identify as iron. Did you have a chance to validate the Iron Check function, seems similar to the GPX 5000 capabilities, and what are your thoughts? Bill
  7. Hey phrunt, I'm also looking for the NF 12" x 7", any idea when they will be available? Thanks, Bill
  8. Jason, I thoroughly enjoy reading the in-depth posts you write and discoveries made in pounded patches. I also enjoy the light-weight GPX 6000, that's why I traded in my GPZ. Those CC coils on the GPZ are impressive, almost makes me want to go back to the GPZ.😂 Looks like you're in the salty NNV??? Bill
  9. stateguy, If you need one, Gigmaster is selling his on FB: Got a Fisher Impulse for sale! 2 batteries included looking for a good offer! Email me at gigmaster2718@gmail.com! Used about 6 times. Excellent working condition! Located in Va Beach area of Virginia!
  10. WOW, what a great test. Glad I have one on order. https://www.youtube.com/c/PaystreakSuperfreak/about
  11. Wow Jason, great post and love your pimped-out ATV! So your swinging the GPX 6000 now...yep a truly easy, lightweight, gold-finding detector and I love mine. Was wondering if that monster nugget Gerry posted from AZ in 2021 was found by you???😮 Bill
  12. TVR, Yes I read and acknowledged the Fisher Disclosure letter. My issue is that Fisher States in their letter that: "Experienced beach hunters have rigorously tested the Impulse in multiple beach environments since 2009. The Impulse AQ Limited is engineered, manufactured and tested to be fully compliant with the demanding requirements of this application and environment. The Impulse AQ is not a prototype or pre-production metal detector". I'll say it again: Bill
  13. Latest post on Fisher Labs Impulse AQ FB page from Alexandre Tartar: The IMPULSE AQ units are part of a limited series of 100 pieces. This series allowed us not to rush off into a worldwide series and to see what could be improved. We can see that there are a lot of problems with our competitors with waterproof devices. Unfortunately there are many detectors on the market and the number of returns is catastrophic. Here we have modified the mechanics, removed the cables. We have upgraded the electronic board so that it can be mass produced avec a good board adjustement. We have improved the electromagnetic shielding of the detector and improved its behavior in seawater. Regarding "discrimination", there has been no change. It's always an iron reject setting. So, I spent $1,800+ to be a tester, so "they could see what could be improved" Are you kidding me! Bill
  14. The biggest problem I have with the AQ is those tiny fragile M-8 connectors on the battery, headphone and that cable. It's a 1/4" OD fitting with 4 or 5 micro-sized pins. Surely the unit Le Jag was using in France did not use those fragile fittings on his remote battery setup. FTP engineers (Carl) must have been laughing & rolling on the floor when they saw this design...have you seen the way detectorists handle their equipment with their mountain-man & woman hands and over-tightening knobs & threads? Spend a few more bucks and do it right! Right now I'm trying to find a mod to fix this, Bill
  15. I've only been in one Group Session and I was not a resident in the facility, but this thread reminds me of that meeting. I love the new Multi Frequency detector technology, XP Deus II looks amazing and I have one on pre-order. I sold several detectors in 2021 and gave away some to a friend because I NEVER used them! I just can't help myself, my name is Bill and I'm a detector hoarder.LOL😁 OK, maybe I'll make some space for the new toy, we'll think about it, maybe sell some gold detectors, closet queens, IDK. Bill
