Steve & JP

Thanks you Steve for posting it and JP for making the video. Everyday we turn around the GPZ with the 19" coil is making history.

For all the other detectors I could have had a GPZ but for me it's not so much cost but the weight.

Oh well my Birthday is coming up in May and I'm sure my wife will get it for me.ha

I watched the video yesterday, great work JP, and it was an excellent comparison between the two coils and different settings, "General Difficult" is the way to go with the big coil. :smile:

 

Thanks for taking the time to video and compare.

 

cheers dave

where would Minelab be and where would most of us be without Jonathan Porter? Three cheers for JP...hip hip hurrah ...and so on...

Seriously, if anyone can wring a little extra from his detector it is the Man from Queensland.

Norm was unkind enough to loan me his 19 for a while. I didn't realize what a wimp I have become...that swing arm and coil nearly killed me...I need some strength training or maybe drywall to hang...

I would adapt if I knew there was one lunker waiting...

Yet another video showing not only the power of the GPZ with the 19" coil, but the thoroughness and the expertise that JP brings to the detecting community. It's easy to forget that the time and energy JP invests in these videos are essentially gifts to all of us.

Thanks Steve & JP,

  • for sharing this vid, it was a great dig for you JP and thanks for the comparison between the 14" & 19" coils it was an eye opener to see the difference between the two coils.  :smile:.  A big congrats to you JP for your nice find and a very nice Christmas present as well.

      Got out Friday, and decided to use the good ol Boat Anchor 19 " coil on the ZED. After finding the Specimen Gold, and into it 2 hours, my Bungee broke, and I had to go to my backup bungee, and also switched back to the 14". I was using the High Yield Mode with the 19" coil, since the soils here are not to bad, and I seem to get a little more depth using the 19" with High Yield.

      Does Minelab limit transferring the warranty to several new owners, or can you just transfer the warranty once?? Talking about the 7000. 
        Also hearing from multiple sources Minelab doesn't really do repairs, they just mail new devices back to you if there is something wrong. ????

      Well I did it..... recent success in Gold Basin with my 5000 and Evo (some documented on here, some not) has allowed me to scrape together the pennies to buy my ultimate "significant other". 
      I'm now the proud owner of a ZED with 19" coil and to help save my back, I picked up an over the shoulder boulder holder Mac Daddy coil suspension rigging. Some of you may recall my looking at it at the Minelab conference here in Lost Wages (Las Vegas). I've tried it on, it's incredible, hopefully it doesn't sound off too much with all the aluminum, lord knows I've already dug enough aluminum cans with the Evo, I'll let you all know how it goes.
      Sooooo prepare for some dumb blond questions as I go forward with Zeddie. 
      Pics are my little x'mas in April picnic lunch outside my 5th wheel and the harness (the gal in the harness shots is not me, she's much more attractive)

      Do these GPZ19's normally false at the slightest tap of a rock? I'm not sure why they put a scuff plate on it, you cant scuff with this and it gets VERY tiring having to run it 6" off the deck, seems if this is normal your giving up depth... this is 100x worse than the piece of junk Goldstalker falsing one I had. All settings the same, with the GPZ14 on no falsing at all, nice and quite... 19 all but useless... is it so hot of a coil that you need to babysit and carry it above all rocks? If that's the case it's going in the classified section, perhaps it's defective...
      thx

      Still love my 5000 but it's sadly neglected as of late., the 7000 is just a beast!
      Walked onto another little run in a wash today in a totally new area. Scored 19 grams in nuggets plus two specimens. *
      Just belted the species and got 1.4 out of the little one and 4.6 out of the bigger one plus probably about another 3 or so grams in fines to be panned off.
