  1. Nice hunt George! Congrats on the silver & Ray Bans! I got stuck with Jury Duty today and missed out on all the fun โ˜น
  2. Wow, that sucker is hyuuuuge! Congrats on a big time score! ๐Ÿค‘
  3. I sent an email to FTP sales support (Arturo Barrientos) asking If there is a 10" coil available for the Fisher AQ, his reply was that there is not one available...
  4. Did the author mean 8" coil, or is there actually a 10" coil available?
  5. Congrats on the old gold there Joe! Good to see your out using the AQ again!
  6. Thanks Joe! After a year of owning the AQ and using it non-stop on the wet sand, I definitely love it! Combined with your 11 hour big battery, it's a force to be reckoned with ๐Ÿ˜ I do hope to snag a 2nd AQ ltd, but I feel that I may have missed my chance. I like $1499 price tag on it, not too hard on the wallet..
  7. Nice work there Kob! Congrats on the gold & other goodies๐Ÿ˜..I hit a spot for a few days during the recent high wind/high surf event, ended up with 4 gold and some silver. Loads of targets, the clad was driving me nuts so switched over to tone mode to weed out the clad and just target the gold signals, was very fun indeed! You mentioned having to turn your head so you could hear due to the wind, does your head phones have weep holes? If so you might want to put some tape over the holes If you haven't already.. My AQ headphones have weep holes, I put tape over them and it helped keep the noise out during high winds..
  8. I'm using the stock 12.7" coil, almost pulled the trigger on the 8" coil, but ultimately decided I didn't really need it. The depth is great! I cant imagine needing a deeper machine, I don't think I would want to dig any deeper unless I was going after a chest of gold ๐Ÿ˜ I only have my Sov. GT and a Whites Surf PI to compare it to, before the AQ I would mostly use the Sov. GT for wet sand hunting in mild conditions and when I went to beaches where I knew the black sand was going to be thick, I would bust out the Surf PI since the GT would struggle in the black sand. The AQ has replaced both those machines for me, giving me the best of both worlds. I did a lot of black sand hunting in September where the Sov would have struggled, I would have missed a lot of targets since I would have had to dial back the settings and also keep the coil a few inches off the sand. Using the Surf PI would have worked, but I would have to dig absolutely everything including clad coins, and in a loaded target rich beach, I'm really only after the gold, I don't want to waste time digging endless amounts of clad coins, bobby pins and tent stakes. With the AQ I can work the thick black sand without losing too much depth and also weed out most iron, tent stakes and clad coins and just go after the gold signals If I want, which come through as a high pitch smooth squeal. I love the high pitch squeal it gives over gold signals, its music to my ears! I still have my Sov. GT and Surf Pi as back up, just in case I run into any technical problems with the AQ but for me it has become the MVP in the line-up for wet sand hunting. Honestly, If I didn't like this machine and felt that It was an absolute dud, I wouldn't be trying to buy a 2nd one that's for sure! ๐Ÿ˜
  9. Thanks Dewcon4414! Yea I think I might of gotten off easy as far as problems go with the AQ, When I first got mine about a year ago, the threshold nob wasn't working, I sent it back to Fisher and they replaced the threshold pot, took about a month before I got it back. Thankfully it has been working great ever since though..
  10. Thanks Hamid! Have you been out hunting lately? Haven't seen you post finds in a long time.. What machine do you use these days?
  11. Thanks Joe D! Luckily all the stones are intact and present on the LeVian ring, the main stone is chocolate quartz, surrounded by white & chocolate diamonds, with 2 pink sapphires, one on each side of the ring. Yea it's been very quiet on the Fisher AQ production front...I put myself on their waiting list a few months ago for a 2nd Fisher AQ Ltd to have as back-up just in case but I haven't heard anything since..I'm not really interested in the final production model to be honest, only because I have no plans on going in the water or under it. Here in SoCal, the surf is just too crazy for this landluber to handle and ankle deep is as far as I go.
  12. Thanks SchoolofhardNox, This last round of hunting in Sept was around 7 or 8 times If I remember correctly, which is usually what I've been averaging this year for hunts per month. All hunting this year has been in the wet sand, I just don't have the will to trudge on dry sand anymore...
