I agree with this is so many ways. It REALLY needs to be cutting edge. It’s been so long since the t2/f75, I hope this new platform is using totally new tech and not something they’ve been working on for 6 years. It has to be 2021 level electronics to surpass what’s out there, most of which came to light in 2018.I hope the bring something with newer technology....... I would love to spend my money on Detectors made in the USA. Three other brands are leading the way as of now.
I’m pretty clueless about the inner workings of detector development, but I would have to say the impulse was probably a little different being that it is a joint effort with the original designer and so he is involved with it which takes more time. I think of the impulse as one of those exotic cars that are one-off productions of extreme styling or performance. It’s msrp reflects the extreme development.Hopefully it won’t get delayed for years like the aq was...
If you are at the right swim hole or two the exotic beast is likely to pay for itself in very short order. ;-)I think of the impulse as one of those exotic cars that are one-off productions of extreme styling or performance. It’s msrp reflects the extreme development.
Cold water swim holes can be great. Fingers shrink in the cold and rings fly off. Currently or formerly popular swim holes can be very productive. If you do start to get into the water, research some old historic swim places and you just might be very surprised ... as long as some one else hasn't been heavily detecting it first. My local swim hole doesn't produce much now, but when I first got in the water about 14 years ago, it quickly gave me finds that have paid for all the detectors I have bought to date. The rest of the swimming holes have all been gravy and provide the enjoyment of the hunt, even if not as productive.This is true.... I’m not much of a water hunter.... yet. I should be, there’s more water than land here!!!
i agree! !...they do have financial wallop, and dave johnson and crew are ''top shelf!"First somewhat positive inkling that something fresh may be on the horizon. They are a big company, just need to give some priority to the hobby division. HH Jim tn
Thought I saw somewhere that Dave was pretty much retired. He used to chime in on the F T forums from time to time, mostly just to set speculations straight, but haven't seen a post of his now for quite a while. HH Jim tnow old is Dave Johnson? The started designing detectors in 1981, 40 years ago. Is he in his 70's by now , and retired?
