  1. The cables they use now are very hardy and I doubt there would be any problems with them. If there was there are places that sell similar cables here in the states. And really you could make your own for the connectors are sold by Bulgin. I just don't like the design and the way it's looks like a rats nest. My big concern about having a limited that far away would be Warranty work.
  2. My opinion, Nothing wrong with the limited other then the battery run time and the cables in that area. But I do think the "New" AQ is a much better machine because they have made so many refinements. The only thing that concerns me...the Price. I am hopping around 2000.oo?
  3. You are Hot on the Yellow Mike and that AQ is going to be paid off soon! Great day out Mike, Thank you for the invite also. Hard to believe it has been 5 months since I got wet.
  4. Sorry to see they need to debate about it being replaced.😵 Maybe I should work a design up for a new clevis, can't be that hard.🔨
  5. WTG Mike!! Love the Red Stone Gold!! Both oldies too and been down for a good many years. I knew you and the AQ would hit it off with a Bang !! I see a lot more gold coming out of those tough spots you have up there. Happy Birthday also.. And Thanks to Steve for the extra 26650 batteries. Something a little different.
  6. O Boy! Another one! No doubt you have figured out the AQ! I have to work on that Tones mode thing...Carolina and Now Slimpickens!
  7. I agree on all, Kool targets and spot! Looks like a lot of history... And I Love what Schoolofhardnoxs said on the deep stuff. Digging one ways, iffy faints and targets that null or jumping ID can be prime targets. .. I love sunken markers, Gives me a gauge on where I am at and the water level. Tides were low up in the northern part of the Bay also, so we must not be to far a part, Since I am not hunting yet someone send me a "Look what you missed picture" Low here was 3pm..Neg 1 foot.
  8. Thank you..... Learn something new everyday. I though there was a small amount of silver in them.😬 Here are a few Old nickel rings. (Not marked) Then another I am not sure, it is marked Nickel / Silver. Just looked up, the single ring is German Silver.. Nickel Silver vs. German Silver The terms “nickel silver” and “German silver” actually refer to the same substance, but items made of this metal are not really silver at all. Nickel or German “silver” is a white alloy containing copper, zinc, and nickel. While it is silvery in color, it contains none of th
  9. Love the red stone ring! I've found several nickel rings but they have that clean look but nickel colored. I have one I found that is marked Nickel / Silver. (which is German Silver) When I found it I though gold but for some reason it looked different. Very clean but just not the right look. See if I can find the picture... You should be able to tell the difference if you scratch it on the testing stone. Gold is soft, NIckel will be hard...Nickel/Silver.. I'm not sure.
  10. Pins are no different on the old Minelab sovereign and Excalibur shafts (set low). I've broke a few of them over a 12 year period but never a Whites. I broke them because of me leaning on them when digging which will cause stress cracks then a eventual fail. Where is my Buddy Dew, that's his number one thing to break.
  11. Sorry to hear Skulldiver, I lost a Excalibur about 4 years ago to the saltwater. Could not get home in time to save her. You get to where you have a relationship with these machines when they continue to work there magic. Gone, but not forgotten....🏴‍☠️
  12. Congrads on the new coil! When they first sent me one to test last fall they sent it with out the lower rod also. I was a little puzzled at first....I notified them of the problem and they were very fast in getting one out to me.. Mistakes happen..... More then once looks like. Having the 8 inch coil and not being able to use it right away ..... I grabbed one of my Xtra Excalibur lower shafts and took off about 1/32th of a inch on each side. Fit perfect... Enjoy that 8 inch.. And keep us informed on how it works.
  13. Normally I use USPS but they had stopped all deliveries to some countries during that time.... the endcaps would have cost about 35 dollars...to the land downunder. I remember one time I shipped GG head phones over night to Shizuoka Prefecture Japan .....someone in great need ..it was FEDX 285.oo. And it ended up being 2 day shipping time. He did getting several Plat...and killer golds. Him to me.. Still keeping up with you on the ring count, just. Good to have some friendly competition brother.
  14. I'm not sure why but I can tell you once you start shipping over seas and specially Downunder, Australia... if something goes wrong with the detector it cost a fortune to ship. Fisher is very good at paying shipping both ways on warranty issues......I've shipped stuff to Australia before, detectors, parts and the shipping is insane. Example ... 150 USD dollars to ship two endcap...Then add in import duties. To much risk and cost. Once they get service setup in Euro and other places I can see service being easier to the other side of the world.. All of this is me guessing also.
  15. That's a Great site, have almost every 18650 I've ever seen.. And Great details on each.
  16. Nice time out on the treasure ark! Flat bottom you can get up in the shallow's. Kool Baltimore bottles also, I've heard of those names before, long gone but not to far from me.
  17. The machine to have would be the TDI Pro in that box...SEA GHOST has really done some nice mods over the last 2 years.
  18. Lots of old swim spots on the rivers in Illinois from what I hear. I'm not sure if your near Tom Hiluxyota but I really enjoy his river hunt video's.
  19. Very nice setup and it is in your back yard...👍...You can really learn a lot about a detector doing testing and playing with the settings in a test garden ...... Good Luck! I've had a swing arm (air) test bed for many years. Although not as nice as yours I've learned so much about my machines and target responses. My favorite testing has been head phones and how to get the most out of them, audio wise.
  20. Best production headphones I've ever used....., So much I recommended to Fisher they sell them as aftermarket headphones.. they are that good. Blows away every aftermarket and private set made for use at the beach and diving. Thank You Alexandre !! And for the details above...On the New World Version Impulse "AQ"
