    But hopefully this new detector will shake up the industry. Looking forward to seeing what it has to offer.
    Thanks friend, most of the requirements which are locked down now (since November) came from right here, others are still secret so give rumors a grain of salt, the secret ones are very cool and will blow many away - it did me when I tested one aspect a few weeks ago )
    Something new is coming, the Cygnus, don't be left behind!

    Hey Calabash! It's no rumor to the point I'm taking a chunk of cash out of my retirement account to buy and resell some. When you put your money where your mouth is, that's for real! Going to have to set up a business. Ugh. I've had two over the years, none for metal detectors, but I hate the extra tax forms.

    C'mon pop my Cherry

    I will likely be onboard for purchase and would love to know a ROUGH price point in what the guestimates are. I can almost say with confidence something like this wont be under the $1000 USD mark, but even at that price im all ears.

    We are still working on pricing but if you read the thread in the first post here you would know that a good portion of this project is about giving back to the community - and we've not discussed what is or isn't going to be in Cygnus yet but all of that will come out soon!

    I would add that the requirements list bar a few goodies that are available just because of how we are doing it, were taken right from YOU the people!

    I will make all of you a solemn promise. Please read. I will be one of the LAST people to test it in real life conditions in the field. I have selected a site in the mineralized Northern Maryland Wissahickon schist. The site has produced a lot of clad, a few Civil War items, one or two colonial items and enough aluminum cans to make a car with! No kidding on the aluminum. The soil is highly mineralized. Accessory minerals in the ground are hematite, magnetite, rutile (ore of titanium), iron garnet, zircon, native silver, and gold. This will be quite the test! Would be nice to pull out a gold nugget! There is also a creek there and finding a nugget with the machine would be so awesome! Our Equinoxes and Deus machines could not find one in the water.

    Site #2 will be a salt water beach. Both in and out of the water. (Apparently in January I'm going to water's edge only.) Place has been pounded so there may not be a lot of targets to begin with, but we will see.

    Site #3 is a sandy moderate soil on the eastern shore of Maryland. There are not a lot of hot rocks there, but there are a few. Trash is light, but targets are deep! The shallow ones have already been found.

    Site #4 is the horrible Virginia red dirt in Culpeper you have heard me and others talk about. My permission is 3 miles or so from the DIV sites and has been hunted since probably about 1960. I have pounded the snot out of it!

    Site #5 is a Baltimore County Park. It has been hit for YEARS now, but there are some dense iron patches there and we will see how the Cygnus 1-X does there. I have apparently no idea what could be left after 15 years of detecting there by at least one club.

    So the promise is - NO BS! What you see is what you get! I do not buy hype, except maybe once, and that I regretted really fast! Some of you who dig with me will be able to test drive one of these the week they are released. They will give feedback too I'm sure. And I will be videotaping this!

    The buck stops here! And NO, I did not pay for the privilege of participating in this great adventure!

    Excited to see what transpires, Smokey. When you've had enough my soil here on Vancouver island is full of mineral goodness that tricks the EQ800 and CTX every hunt but am super interested to hear your results =)

    Thanks, Doc! As you can see, I'm in the Pacific Northwest where we have high mineralized soil. Anyone going to be testing the Cygnus in our, or similar, soil conditions?

    Bquamb, nothing is worse than the Virginia red dirt. There are numerous minerals mines with a few miles of the site I'm going to. There are gold and iron mines close to it. We've had a lot of machines in there. The Cibola did pretty well. It has a fast processor and would go deep. The AT Pro's we used didn't have a chance. An Excel we took in one day found NOTHING! PI machines have been there and surrendered to the iron! The Equinox 800 did ALMOST as good as the Deus, but ALL the rocks there are hot rocks and neither the Deus nor the Nox will go very deep! The deepest I dug with the Cibola was 8"! The Deus, about the same! There are very few "surface" targets anymore and some quite irresponsible parties have dug out huts and not backfilled the holes. Pieces of CW ration cans and nails are EVERYWHERE! Worse place on earth! We will be looking for DEEP non ferrous items there.

    See smokeythecat's posts on this page and we have others that can chime in but short answer is yes!

    THz imaging ? Just a guess...Good Luck!

    Go Smokycat girl, put those wader and gloves on, has to be submerged more then a couple feet to get the full effect of saltwater. May I suggest Merrit Park, Hit very hard..but the gold is there. You come out of there with a gold I know it's good. This spot was on my list for the Fisher Impulse "AQ". I bet we have got close to 100 golds out of there in the last 4 years..None for 2019.
