Fisher seem to have solved this issue with the Impulse AQ as early prototype tests seem to be getting great reviews over in Russia. The technology has been refined by the Bulgarians and we expect to see this metal detector materialize sometime before the end of 2019. it's currently in prototype and testing stage and all the signs are this new tech is very promising!

    • Currently in the final testing stages before production begins
    • Tonality: in the “all metals” mode - one tone, then there is the “2 tones” mode and the “mute” mode.
    • The machine is built strong with durable cables and waterproof components
    • Battery life is expected to be ~10 hours
    • There is no screen, just 5 knobs for settings and selections.
    • It won't be cheap, pricing estimates are currently between $2000 and $2500
    • The test units weigh 1.8KG and are well balanced
