    Yes you are right
    it's just an opinion for those who hesitate
    wait or not ....

    everyone didnt necessarily the budjet for two high-end detector
    a few months apart

    I'm not saying that TDI is bad
    it's probably the best waterproof at withe's

    but the Fisher AQ, will still be a step up........

    Rick K...... that is the solution because no ones killing the small gold. Ive gotten a few with the Nox, but still not quite what i wanted in the water. You know what im looking for ..... small gold thats just inches beyond our sensitivity with multi freq machines.... even the Nox.

    Sooooo how long will testing go on? I am curious if NASA Tom has one since he loaned his AquaStar. I assume these NDAs are going to keep a lid on everything so we wont know much..... or see much until the roll out. I dont know if its been asked ...... but can we pre order? Hopefully there introduction wont take an entire year to get one.

    My November beach finds make me pleased I didn't wait and I'm ready to step UP, but it will most likely be a tall step and a very long time before a Fisher AQ will be available on this side of the sea.

    I will be surprised if the Aquamanta will exceed the performance of my TDIBH ....running the high voltage pack / 10uS / very low threshold / volume up as required............plus the super smooth threshold and pleasing audio. Notice I say "surprised".......and not "can't" or "won't"......I know the Aquamanta can run at 7uS but in real world testing, I don't feel the 3uS will make an a huge difference. The White's real strength is the smooth threshold with GB off and amazing sensitivity/depth.

    right now im not sure i know of any machines running at 7 uS.... let alone one that may run smooth in the salt water for testing. That 3 uS will make a difference.... every bit of sensitivity you can run will improve TID on low conductors. BUT...... everyone can speculate about the AQ..... at least Whites has one out there to compete. Again thou.... why do we have to be the guys modifying a machine that could be much better. Surely Whites knew how much dcv the machine would run? Its going to be an interesting comparison......

    Wished id got this for the winter hunting. Its not just the uS im looking for, i want to know how well it might disc some targets over say the TDI. If its just another PI thats really deep with no better disc...... just means you are digging more targets in hopes of finding gold..... all those targets left by VLFs and those not seen. That 3 uS can come into play.... depending on how much you have to turn the machines down..... it may be more or less.

    Same here but just need a bit of encouragement to hold out...

    Effort is Important, But knowing where, can make all the difference!

    Patience is a virtue - virtue is hard!

    The only thing we know for sure is that it’s not ready. It’s a surprisingly long road from electronics and software done to boxes ready to ship. That road leads through pre-production validation of all parts and processes to build the production machines, field testing of final pre-production hardware, any “adjustments” based on field testing, then producing the machine in quantity along with advertising material, boxes, user handbook......

    They are no doubt somewhere on that road. Just where they are - only some folks in El Paso know - and they ain’t sayin!

    I also had a good month of November
    just a picture of the first week
    in 6 days ....

    I was lucky / to find the right spot
    but one thing is on
    a low voltage pulse in 12 volts
    which is not really 10us ...
    would not have achieved all its targets

    if we always know what we find
    we never know what we let pass

    the 7us under 16 volts Fisher AQ
    will open a new field of vision

    yes, we have to wait, finally mine works very well

    already tell the story on another forum
    but I can do it here too

    I'm falling on a beach that had been digging like never before
    a century of jewelry !!
    the 18k gold medal dating from 1903
    wedding ring 1953/1962/1978/1983 ............

    a big lot of silver jewelry

    15 days later I return on big tides
    and I'm remaking 5 gold rings and lots of silver jewelry

    got some of the gold rings
    on a simple whisper
    the silence of Fisher AQ is perfect
    when I say a whisper / it's just a barely audible breath

    this machine is not comparable
    the rest of the production is a UFO ....

    Look at that black sand!!

    Gold awaits those who hunt where no comparable device has been before.

    When they hit the market - a new tool will meet an essentially non-renewable resource perhaps. Will it be like when the first Minelab PI’s hit the goldfields in OZ?

    Who knows, but if you don’t have one - others will.

    In unmineralized white sand will it be as revolutionary? The first guys to try it will know - if they are not impressed - I’m sure that they will tell us. If they are impressed, perhaps they will say little - while they.......
