Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ is the  Australian distributor for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the approved retailer and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

Yesterday I was  out with our flyfishing club  and  I was fly fishing the upper Yarra river ar Warburton Vic. Despite having a wading staff and using proper wading boots with cleats  and felt soles I still managed to go fo a swim and  now  also have a sore back and a bruised knee!The river is very rocky and the rocks are very slippery so care should be taken in wading rivers like this particularly when the rocks are so slippery. I also found that its very demanding physically for a  very skinny 68 year old like  me to wade and then to clamber up and down steep banks with waders and a fly vest and net and  also walk quite long distances  between pools in the heat! The only person that caught some trout was a new American club member who caught them on a fly pattern which none of us had!!
A very sore and tired doug!

Hi Doug
Sorry to hear that, I saw a lot off people go under on the same river including myself.
On that place we had to cross the river to get to a island, water levels were very critical.
Everybody had a swimm on that place, on a hot day its ok, fished in underwear for a couple off houres.
At least we don't have crocs.
Good luck and take care.

I have panned in that general area of the Upper Yarra and found it risky / slippery on the rocks. :ike you I have slipped many times in rivers on rocks and felt embarrased sore and sorry for myself afterwards. On a hot day its not so bad but on a cold day, with fast water, it is much less pleasant.

At least being skinng you offer less resistance to water flow.

Not when you are wearing waders, wading boots and a heavy fly vest!
