With a 200 foot depth rated housing and a 6 foot maximum detection range, the Pulse 8X is Fishers top of the line detector.  It's heavy duty construction and high sensitivity make the Pulse 8X the choice of professionals everywhere.   This commercial-grade metal detector is used by treasure hunters, commercial diving companies, law enforcement agencies, and military units worldwide. 

The claim-to-fame of this pulse induction detector is it's ability to ignore minerals in the environment while maintaining high sensitivity to all metal targets.  It is not affected by highly mineralized salt water, coral, rocks with a high iron content, or magnetic (black) sand; all of which drive conventional metal detectors crazy.  The Pulse 8X detects all metals from coins and jewelry, to anchors and cannons; and does it on land, or in fresh or salt water. The diver is alerted to presence of a metal target by both visual readout (shown on the meter) and an audio output (heard in the underwater earphone). The detection range for a target is unaffected by the medium between the detector's coil and the metal object. Diver with Pulse 8X and Spanish coins Performance does not vary whether detecting through air, water, silt, sand, or solid coral.




The Pulse 8X comes with all the accessories needed to use the detector on land or dive to depths of over 200 feet.  The standard package includes a corrosion proof PVC handle for underwater use, an anodized aluminum handle for land use, underwater and land headphones. The package also includes AC and DC battery chargers, a hip-mount kit for the electronics housing, rugged Cordura carry bag, spare parts kit, and JW Fishers Search Team hat.

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 it's ready for another full day of hunting.

A complete line of interchangeable coils are available which gives this detector tremendous versatility.  Two of the coils can be deployed from a boat; the operator can be topside with the electronics unit, and have a coil on the bottom searching for metal. See below for additional options.

                                                                                    The Pulse 8X has double the power and detection range of the Pulse 6X detector.
