  1. Detech Coil For Makro Racers

    Good news! Now hopefully they'll expand to other coil styles, and maybe do a 14x10 excelerator for the Impact!
  2. Share away no probs. The big difference is that the GPZ in Normal with a slightly lower sensitivity could easily be run in that ground. The GPX would need the Sensitivity dropped to minimum, and you'd need to have good tolerance to noise. If I had a time machine, I would love to go back and try a big DD on the GPX.
  3. Having Faith In Your Detector

    "I will have faith in my gear" This should be no. 2 on the list of 10 Commandments for Electronic Prospectors. No. 1 is - I will love doing this even on days when I find no gold Well done, the next bits will come a lot easier I think.
  4. Jin, it can be a bit of a combination of factors which vary between spots. The 4500 is well up to the task to find big deep lumps, it's just that people don't really set them up to target big gold. In milder/medium mineralisation I'd be using the biggest DD you can get your hands on and Sharp timing. In hotter soils I'd be using Enhance and a big mono, 19" Evo or 20" NFA or 22" Gold Stalker.
  5. White's Goldmaster V-SAT ?

    Yeah the old concentric coil on the GM's were prone to becoming very touch sensitive. I rebuilt mine and it ran a lot better. Anyone buying a really old one would probably want a new coil for it. For me personally, out of the Whites I'd go a V/sat or a GM3 over a GMT.
  6. Make sure the cable connection inside the shaft is nice and snug. Mine lost audio, then I noticed Check Coil message on the screen. Tighten up the connection and all good.
  7. Fisher F75+ Announced

    So looks like maybe no Mosca for a while. But this interests me a lot more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8sdp4RG73g&feature=youtu.be&app=desktop taken from: http://www.findmall.com/read.php?37,2398091
  8. Fisher F75+ Announced

    Do they mean a gold coloured F75 or an F75 Gold operating on 71 kHz
  9. Battery Alternative For SDC 2300

    The SDC battery input voltage is regulated, so any performance benefits are wishful thinking or a bit of a placebo effect I think. If you do want to go the 18650 option, then a good charger which will charge these batteries as well as NiMH C Cells (and pretty much everything else) is the AccuPower IQ338XL.
  10. Don't know about the F75 but on the Makro Gold Racer and Nokta Gold Finder comparing 5" to the 7.5x4", the elliptical has a sharper response, a clear depth improvement (although small), but bangs a bit harder on hot rocks.
  11. The New Coils For The 2300

    Yeah exactly. Also for me, small coil equals less EMI, equals greater sensitivity levels and/or less Smoothing required
  12. Funny how all the manufacturers are now starting to use the same dramatic music, teaser videos, your old product will be redundant etc etc.
  13. Early Minelab - Original Eldorado

    They're the exact 4 controls I'd want on a v2 SDC2300 ....and maybe tone as well. I think the Eldorado's were about 8 kHz, same as the Goldseekers. You can still download the Goldseekers manual here: http://www.minelab.com/__files/f/4108/Inst Manual Goldseeker 15000 Website.pdf
  14. Steve's Guide To Nugget Detectors Updated

    Always interested to read your opinions on this Steve, so thanks for keeping it updated. As far as I know the GPX4800 has been discontinued. http://www.minelab.com/customer-care/product-notices/discontinued-products/gpx-4800 Also, any reason why the Au Gold Finder isn't on the list? It's about as dedicated prospecting machine as they come. It's like a modern day hybrid of the Gold Bug 2 and Gold Racer.
