I have been out of the game for a few years. I owned an Excalibur 2 years ago and I have seen other brands being used. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
I don't think the AQ1B's priority is ferrous metals. It's crazy about silver, and its only weakness is low carat gold. This metal detector is made for shipwreck hunters.You wont be detecting at either of those depths so the depth is moot... or not for long anyway. (heh)
Pulse 8x is an actual metal detector... all metals... the other is more geared towards ferrous metal...its more of a "magnetometer".
Pulse 8 is commercial industry standard...AND,,, half the price.
Ask the old-schoolers...

I might be confusing another model they make after reading up on the company,.. which is actually a magnotometer.I don't think the AQ1B's priority is ferrous metals. It's crazy about silver, and its only weakness is low carat gold. This metal detector is made for shipwreck hunters.
Aquascan produce a hand-held magnetometer whose control unit is identical to the unit (the difference is in the color) of the metal detector.I might be confusing another model they make after reading up on the company,.. which is actually a magnotometer.
It seems they do make an actual metal detector as well.... and i assume to which this is what you ref
Nice report !!1Excalibur with discrimination for shipwrecks is a good machine (I have such a metal detector), but if you want deep signals (there is the truth), I recommend pulse induction.
I have also worked with Garrett Sea Hunter Mark II, Whites Surfmaster Dual Field, but for me personally the underwater metal detector is Aquapulse AQ1B.
