  1. Boot Alert

    Best 2 boots I ever found is the merrell hiking boots that are water proof and the Australian boot called the Red Back! I wore the merrells back in 2005 and best boot ever for western OZ tough terrain. Only metal is the 2 eyelets and a small tag saying waterproof. Best when in rough stuff and running a Zed hot is a welcome boot. Better yet if you can find a pair of the red back as they have no metal whatsoever. Tough boot to find in Western OZ and found mine at Finders Keepers in Kalgoorlie. Oz shoe size is one size bigger than here in the US and you need to go one size smaller. Both are great shoes and will always wearing a new set of merrell due that living 6 months in WA. outback, my merrells did not let me down. Only bad thing with the merrell is the unique tread foot print and it makes it easy to follow by others following you to your patch!
  2. New back up 4500 and no time on it and still new in box. Assembled only for testing. 3 commander coils included 8", 11" & 12x15" with remaining factory warranty. Will ship only in US. Asking $2300 or best offer. PM me and can send photos. Thanks AC
  3. Tesoro Mojave For Nugget Detecting

    Mojave is a great little detector and YES it will find the Yellow as well. If you're ever in a pinch and working in some of the dry wash piles, it is capable of zinging out sub gram nuggets. Not like a Fisher GB, but is capable of finding nuggets. I did some testing in the Gold Basin area with the Mojave. I found the 5.75 concentric and even the little 4" is somewhat an eye opener for such a inexpensive detector. It works! AC
  4. What Coil Size Do You Most Want For The GPZ 7000?

    Sorry Chris! I was not thinking about here in the USA...
  5. What Coil Size Do You Most Want For The GPZ 7000?

    A 12" x 10" would do just fine and would be a killer on small fly stuff.
  6. Howdy Pat! Just remember those sweet spots and take your time and concentrate on those area we looked at and You know the ground and you have to get your loop over it. Do me a favor! If you see Dingo and say Hello & hope he still driving Betty. Reg is out their somewhere waiting for you. Any how this year is our 10 year Reunion and guess I am going to miss out. Remember keep Grants Patch in back of your mind... Just think big chunky Yellow!!! Oz is a calling to me as well! Best in Hunting A.C.
  7. Killer Salt For Zed

    I am glad to know that the ZED is capable of hunting salty ground here in USA . WESTERN Australia grounds are so extreme that each new area hunting opened up new challenges.All I can say is that serious hunter needed 4 things.. a ZED ,5000,2300 and a good walco pick. I won't get into about the Sandstone W.A.area with all the banded iron ore.Its the other extreme of the spectrum.
  8. Killer Salt For Zed

    Yep some areas of lower salt content you can detune and operate the ZED. However in the land of down under you are wasting your time that due that areas like the great salt lake Austin out of Cue W.A. is totally unforgiving and even areas away front the lakes are zed killers. The ZED mimic a PI unit in sound but acts more like a super VLF on steroids. A 5000 with a 14"DD will shine better than a ZED in salts. Another problem is after a good rain in the(outback) the ZED picks up salt pockets near bushes and an other ghost hole! Certain grounds that contain high amount of salts will certainly think you have a deep one and unfortunately a lot of digging for nothing, but use something like a backup 5000 to check hole to saves a lot of wasted time and digging. maybe here in the USA is nothing compared to wonderful bad and nasty ground from the land of plenty of Yellow.
  9. Greetings. The Gpz 7000 is virtually a dead horse in ground that are saturated with a high salt content. Either salt lakes or just grounds that have a high mixture with salts will give the ZED a bad case of the howlees. The tracking on the ZED is slow and unforgiving in salts. Over highly mineralization the ZED works great and proper adjustments it will do what's it designed for to find Gold. For those who are going to be searching very salt saturated soil or lake beds then you may want to stick with your 4500 or 5000's. The Gpz will find gold down to a 0.05 gram and does better and deeper, but it does have it short fall but one hell of a good detector. AC
  10. The Subject of The GPZ 7000

    Very well said JP! I rolled out the bank roll and went for the new kid on the block. Minelab could lightened the loop weight some and offered some additional loops right off the bat would been nice. I shooting for the new electronics I all I can say that it better work and pull out the yellow better than anything else out there. I am looking for a vehicle to purchase that is suited for the outback and soon to arrive in WA next month. I will give my ZED the ultimate test in all that fine Red ground. With all the pros and cons said the ZED I have chosen to follow minelab new generation as I know in the past each new series has always supercedes the the their previous model. So I hope that holds true with the ZED. best in hunting AC
