Fisher Impulse AQ Now A Retail Model?


Recommended Posts

Has the AQ Limited now become a retail detector?  On their website it appears so? Seems a bit confusing.

Here's a link to it on thier fancy new website.

I thought they were just clearing beta stock, now they're acting as if its a release model, at least it looks that way.

I was under the impression they offloaded them all to Kellyco.

What I don't get Is how they can think to charge $2000 on a machine that originally cost $1500 when it was released several years ago. There have been no improvements to the design that I can see?

 They can ask what they want and if we don’t think it’s worth the price I for one wouldn’t buy it.

 I will admit I’d like to give a try but I’m not going to invest the money to find out if it’s good are great are somebody got the gold mine and I got the shaft.

the price of $1500 was a reduced price only for the first 100 units

Ok, so that means the version they are selling now is the final improved version of the detector? If so what improvements have been made to the "Limited" version? Have all the issues been addressed such as faulty potentiometers? Has the short 3 hour battery life been extended? Has the fragile cables sticking out the back been redesigned so there is no risk of breakage? I just don't see the justification of charging an additional $500 If no issues were fixed from the feedback they received from the first "100" units..

My connection has retired so all I know is from the last unit I tested. They did make several changes, but it is not pictured on their web site. Battery, cables and head phones were improved. 

Potentiometers, I'm not sure.

Would be nice to see a picture of what they are currently delivering ... just to see if it is the version with the batteries in the shaft and the cable fixes rather than the LTD version pictured in the ad. Also, seems odd that the ad is still calling it the AQ limited with the original LTD pictured with the max delay on the face plate as 11.5 rather than 15. Odd at best.

"Designed with user comfort in mind"  Seriously? ? There's a lot of fluff in their advertising of it.  Comfort is not one of the things I feel from running it. Fear, that something is going to snap off,  is more like it. But the quick response is one of the features I do like from it. With the other "new" pulse that just started to be released, for less $$$, I think the sales will go that way instead of the AQ. They waited too long and did not do anything to keep us interested in the refined version that was what we all wanted. Time goes by and there is another serious, low cost pulse machine on the horizon.

I keep getting emails from their eBay page, gotta hurry, almost sold out, etc. They are taking offers and have taken as low as $1400 from one forum member, lower than the so-called we will never go lower introductory price of $1500 from three years ago. Despite what all their emails want me to think the eBay page has been stuck at 1 sold, 9 available for almost two months now. I have to admit I was tempted to offer $1300 but I’m still irritated I sold my last one on the expectation of the upgraded model that never appeared. I don’t want to reward them for that failure to deliver by getting yet another of the original 100 they have been unable to unload in over three years. Especially not with the Nokta right around the corner. No matter what, if you are interested, do not pay $1999. Offer $1400 and they will probably not only take it, but might even go lower at this point since they are not selling at all. Would they take $1200? You lose nothing if they say no to your offer. At most they counter offer with something higher and you can ignore it.
