About J.W.Fishers Pulse 8X Metal Detector

Fishers top of the line hand held metal detector

The Pulse 8X is the highest performance pulse induction metal detector on the market today.

It's the choice of the Pro's! The Pulse 8X is in use by military, law enforcement, commercial, and salvage divers worldwide. Heavy duty construction makes this detector ideal for commercial applications and the preferred detectorof many professional treasure hunters.

The claim-to-fame of this pulse induction metal detector is its ability to ignore mineralization in the environment while maintaining high sensitivity to all metal targets. The Pulse 8X is not affected by highly mineralized salt water, coral, rocks with a high iron content, or magnetic (black) sand; all of which drive conventional detectors crazy . Also, the detection range is unaffected by the medium between the metal detector and the metal target. Performance does not change whether detecting through air, water, silt, sand, orsolid coral. The Pulse 8X comes with all the accessories needed to use the detector on land or dive to 200' (60 meters) deep.

The Pulse 8X detects all metals from coins and jewelry, to anchors and cannons. The diver is alerted to presence of a metal target by both visual readout (shownon the meter) and an audio output (heard in the underwater earphone Powered by an internal 9 volt rechargeable battery pack, the detector will easily run all day on a full charge. Recharge the battery overnight and its ready for another full day of hunting.

The detector's buoyancy is slightly negative in the water. This allows the diver to sit the detector on the bottom to dig a target without having it float away, which is a problem with "positive buoyancy" detectors. The underwater housing is a single solid casting with 1/4" (6.35 mm) wall thickness and molded-in brass inserts. A 1/2"(12.7 mm) thick acrylic faceplate is fastened down with six stainless steel screws giving a maximum depth rating in excess of 200' (60 meters). Included with the Pulse 8X is a rugged corduroy carry case, spare parts kit and a J.W. Fishers Search Team hat.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  what is the weight of this machine?? the fisher Pulse 8X
Kasia W  It is 8.25 lbs (3.7 kg).
Shopper  what metals does it detect, what distance, through rock?
JOHN A  The Pulse 8X detects all metals, it can pick up traces of metal in bricks, rocks, and wet sand. With the highest sensitivity setting I find it detecting metal up to a foot in non-metallic substances, with practice one can narrow down the search to small metallic objects.
Ahmed S  can we identify which metal is detected?
TERRANCE K  yes! Different metals have different electromagnetic properties. Fisher products are, in my opinion, are the finest!
