Here’s a quick air test result he sent me.
I just did some air tests on it. Very strange machine indeed. It is strictly a gold ring finder. In all metal it will find everything a bit better than a good multi frequency in depth, similar to my GPX. But on gold rings and nickels only, it finds them fairly deep for an air test, while in disc mode. But it will not find any earrings, crosses, chains etc… It is not a micro gold finder. I don’t think a lot of people are going to like the fact that it does not find ALL gold. We’ll see how it does at the beach.

Thanks for the report. I will do a "however" ... having followed the development threads for the past few years, it was advertised as designed to not find the micro stuff. There may be some tuning that can be done with the ATS control to bring in some of the smaller stuff; I can't say how much since I don't have one in my hands, but he can play with the settings and figure it out.

One experience I had with my F75LTD was beach hunting and not being able to find what the detector was obviously hitting on. I spent many minutes on my knees sifting sand by hand and running it across the coil, then picking the detector up and rescanning the sand, then repeating until I finally found a plastic sequin that was about 1/8 inch in diameter. The F75 was hitting on the one side metalized surface of this little plastic dot. Not what I want to be chasing at the beach and definitely not in the surf. I'd rather have the 1 gram plus pieces of gold that others aren't finding than trying to dig and add up 0.1 gram pieces.

8 shipped so far. The minimum pulse delay is short enough to find pretty small stuff, but tiny bits of foil. Objects smaller than a bb, etc. might be hard to detect. In the water, the salt will require a higher pulse delay and the smallest targets will be harder to detect, but since they would be almost impossible to recover, it isn’t significant.

The interaction between the ATS (Fisher for SAT) and pulse delay in all metal and those two controls plus the reject control in the tone or mute iron ID modes are the key adjustments which interact with each other to produce varying results depending on ground and target.

Very good data! Couple of nice to see things: Deeper in the sand than in the air. Open rings still at good depth, except the very small one. Platinum looks good too. Hope you get one of those open rings in the water with the AQ!
If I had a Palladium ring I'd send it for tests too, but in all the years I have yet to find one.
Chains are funny in that I've found link size to be more important than weight. Wife had a heavy hollow weave gold chain that not a single detector I have would see it, yet a much lighter chain with round loops could be detected.
Thanks for taking the time and effort to collect the data and post it!!
