    TDI Beachhunter VS Garrett sea hunter

    HI guys!
    I have a Garrett sea hunter with the big coil which found me a lot of goodies in the salt water. I havn't find any comparisson between the sea hunter and TDI beachhunter regarding the depth anywhere.Have anybody any clues? I have have in my minde for a long time to buy a TDI but Fisher impulse aq has stoped me doing that. Sometimes i'm getting a super faint almost non hearable signal(deep) which is very easy to miss,how about the TDI in this situation? Cheers

    I had the TDI in my sights but let it go, for now. Hopefully see the "AQ" before spring.

    On the compare, not sure. Good Luck!

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

    I used to run the Seahunter with the larger coil......nice detector but the TDIBH is in another league. A 12” deep target will be seen an extra 2” to 3” deeper with the TDIBH with the stock battery pack......and another couple inches deeper again running the 14.8v battery pack. This is my first hand experience.
    I hope this helps

    Thanks OBN you are my favorite Hunter. I'm hoping too having AQ before Christmas.The sea Hunter has tendency to miss super faint targets if you don't have a pro ears.

    Hookahforgold, I have no problem worth depth,it is very deep machine,some super faint signal is easy to miss because you just get interruption in threshold not the sound.I see that the TDI have actually sound compare to sees Hunter threshold which maybe you can hear deep targets better

    A faint Sea Hunter signal will be an obvious TDIBH signal

    i have a big area in the water full of small and big iron pieces scattered around and i managed to pull out some gold rings during some years and i know there is still more gold.Most of the time i dont even dare to aproach the area because of the amount of iron. Therfore Fisher impulse aq can maybe help in this sitution,i dont know,but i saw a video demonstrating a TDI finding gold ring under nails like AQ.Can TDI beachhunter help me in this situation too??

    I think your better off waiting for the "AQ" ..........seems to be easier to get thru tough area's like that. Me, I am looking for raw depth...and smaller gold. But If I don't see the "AQ" by next May I may go TDI BH...then upgrade the battery pack to a LiPo 16.8.

    Thanks for the reply OBN ! by the way, regarding the test Whites doing with the TDI BH new coil,do you know if its a bigger coil or smaller? any benefits either those coils compare to currently 12 coil?

    Chub..... i dont think so. Its tied to the TERRA .... i think Fisher needs both. I believe water hunting needs this step as well. We need the competition to look at getting more depth in the salt water..... without people discounting the normal ... i dont want to dig it all, something you do with a PI and why most use VLFs. If we can get them started doing disc PIs who knows where that might go. All that said thou...... i believe there maybe hold ups which may keep us from seeing it by Christmas. IF its a coil issue ....making them all by hand or it NOT wanting to run at 7uS in the salt..... we might see fewer available. That of course would make them pricy. Then most of us would set back ... watch... and listen to just how well they disc and run. If you have to turn them up ...of you loose a ton of depth when in disc ..... could be only the experience full time hunters would grab um up...... others wouldnt find the price worth the advantage.

    Joe..... i know the FCC has limits on freq... ya think these battery upgrades violate that? NOT that the FCC would coming running out on the beach after you lol.
