Hi. Has anyone got or used the 90s Fisher Impulse Detector???. Black case. Yellow facia. Dont think many were sold in Aus. I have heard they were difficult to operate but I would be interested to hear from anyone who may have used one. Saw a Utube video but cant find it again. It seemed to perform reasonably well from what I saw. I cant find much info regarding them on any Oz forum. Regards... Ron. cry

If you type in fisher impulse for sale in a search engine or reviews you will see a review and picture of the machine from im assuming years a go. Price on the review is $700.

The machine was a non motion pi detector and was discontinued by Fisher. Not sure when.

Yes. Apparently difficult to use though. Dont know if they would handle our ground too well but I wouldnt mind trying one out. Probably almost impossible to find now though. And I also heard there are no replacement parts for them either. argh

If anyone has an old one floating around gathering dust I would be interested as long as it still works. Old technology I know. I just like old machines. big_smile

The 90s Fisher Impulse will not work well in our high iron mineralised gold fields.
This detector was designed for salt beach and scuba operation and is wp to 250 feet. It does not have GB, Auto Tune or pulse delay adjust.

As a beach machine it performs well and is a piece of cake to operate. If you are a beach hunter then you may like this machine.

Hi. Adrian. What got me interested is seeing a number of utube vids of very successful operation on a river bank finding large gold nuggets. On some island.They don't say which Island. They were pulling out big nuggets all over the place and the machine was working very well indeed. Regards.. Ronnie. big_smile

If it's the same video I saw, the "Gold"is fake. There's a bloke who has done a whole heap of them. There's even a Russian? dude doing a "Mickey" UTude vid on him.

Painted rocks.

The Island have black dirt/sand?

The island is all mid grey material. Could be slate I think. The river is a fast runner in the background so they are digging along the shoreline. All vids show the digging at high speed til the target is found. All nuggets are golf ball size or bigger. And they are pretty deep too. Looks like the real deal. Gold doesn't look fake. argh

The detector is very noisy over iron mineralisarion and will drive you nuts.
The pulse timing is set for the machine to run quietly in salt water conditions.
Over black sand it is fine. That said; It is an all metal detector and will find gold in the right ground conditions but is not a detector I would use in the gold fields.
THe main claim to fame of PI metal detectors was that they did not respond to iron minerals and that is true up to a point but when the pulse delay is set for salt water hunting the detector would respond to metallic iron and iron mineral.
The Impulse is hot on iron , gold and silver in salt water and wet beach sands and ship wreak divers liked this detector for that very reason.

Thanks Adrian. In the vids I saw the machine was running beautifully. Don't know where the Island is but it looked like a typical fast flowing fresh water river they were detecting next to. As I said the material was all a uniform grey color same every dig. So don't know the geology either. I assumed it was clay based slate material. I've found gold in similar stuff around Bendigo. It's all a bit of a mystery. The fisher seemed to run smooth as. No horrible noises whatsoever???. Can't remember what the videos were called but there's quite a few of them. All young people in the videos. Supposedly never been detected ever. The gold looks bloody good. Regards... Ronnie tongue
