Re: Fisher 1280X Aqua machine

Fisher 1280X Aqua machine
February 11, 2012 09:05AM
Good morning to all!

Can anybody give me some info and recommendations, one way or the other, on this machine? I am looking for a water machine that will work in fresh and salt water as well as in black sand on the beaches.

Leslie;

Thank you for your input.

I am having trouble in deciding on which one to buy.

I just purchased an MXT for land.

I have a friend who has one and he's selling it if your interested I can talk to him. He's only used it a couple times and never in the water. He is not a computer guy and I did post it for him awhile back with pictures. Detector looks brand new just letting you know. I use a CZ 20 and love it. I like the 3 tone. I also use my Garrett AT PRO for the real thing/small gold where the CZ20 won't even give a chirp.JMO

Joe, thanks again. Do you know how much he would want for it in case I go that way. I am still trying to gather as much info as I can before purchase.

I have taken my 1280x with me to Hawaii and have used it in the salt water. I have found a gold ring and lots of coins with it in salt water. I have also used it in the Carolinas and Florida in the water. You certainly know when you have hit a target. The only problem is when you initially lower the coil in the shallow surf near shore where it will false when a small wave breaks over the coil. Once you are in deeper water, say a foot or more, the falsing almost completely disappears.

Have never used the 1280x on land other than dry sand. If you did use it on land you would be digging a lot of junk targets i.e. bottle caps, pulltabs etc.

Thanks Gord

I plan on purchasing it for the beach, both fresh and salt water areas and will purchase an MXT or MXT Pro for land. Are you familiar with the MXT machines?
