  1. Ground Balancing The 7000

    Reg when can we go out for a swing together with your experiance and my detector and stamina lol we could make a great team lol. Have 4wd will travel.
  2. Ground Balancing The 7000

    Thanks JP, I balance my Z the same way but after i do that i leave it relax on the ground with ferrite under the plate for 5 min and i only do this on start up. When i pick the Z up i give it one last swing over the ferrite before i put the ferrite away. It runs very quiet and I'm running 70% of the time in normal high yeild in hot ground in Vic.
  3. Ground Balancing The 7000

    This is very interesting thanks all for your comments.
  4. Ground Balancing The 7000

    I thought you only lost data when you pulled the ground balance button in?
  5. Hi all does anybody ground balance there machine as per instructions then leave the machine on the ground with ferrite under the plate ? I did this while i was getting the rest of my gear ready and it really made it quieter , in very hot ground. The machine was sitting there for about 5 to 8 min approximately.
  6. Battery Alternative For SDC 2300

    Hi all, hope you all are well and you are all finding the yellow. Recevied my new batterys on SATURDAY !!! I went to a spot i have worked before to see how they would go, well I'm not sure if I'm walking over gold but i pulled these 7 cuties with the SDC and new battery set up. Tone to me sounds different but did it enhance the SDCs ability I'm going to say maybe.
  7. Battery Alternative For SDC 2300

    Thanks for posting Davsgold, i was due for a set of replacement batteries for my SDC vac so have just ordered the 18650 and adapters will be sure to let you all no how they go.
  8. A Lighter Weight GPZ 7000?

    Hi all and what a lovely day here in Victoria today. Reg i went into the La La forest today and tried my hip stick for the first time, and wow what a difference it made only problem was i couldn't carry the Rake lol. Try it with the pro harness it might surprise you. No gold today.
  9. Should There Be An Off Topic Forum?

    Thanks Steve for a great site don't change it. If they want to talk of topic tell them to join face book.
  10. A Lighter Weight GPZ 7000?

    Im with you Goldwright the GPZ with the harness fitted correctly is a well balanced machine and i don't find it heavy at all. I swing it and i carry a rake and pick. Hit the bar bells boys.

  13. Hi All

    Hi all i hope some had a bit more luck over the Melb Cup long weekend than me 4 days and i could only manage 2.3 grams with the big Z and SDC. Im still having trouble running the Z in normal seem to get a lot of ghost signals especially around big tree roots any help would be much appreciated. Pic is of finds over the weekend. The flat piece on the right is as thin as a bit of paper.
  14. Nice finds indeed, could i ask if you ran the same settings all the time and if so what where they? I lived in Boulder in the late 80s but unfurtunatly i wasn't into hunting the yellow back then. Im heading back over next year for a visit i hope i can get a little bit of colour. Thanks for the pics.
  15. Wow that made me drool what a great post thanks MN
