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.

      So, just one more issue during my Outing...
      I have been in the habit of tossing my ferrite on the ground...foolish me. They break into many pieces...so no more tossing...
      I wonder if the ring can be super glued back to one piece and function correctly? Or is it more like a metal ring that no longer gives the same signal once the circle is broke?
      Or do I need a new one?
      so many questions....

      While up in the Sierra for a WSPA Outing I used my gpz. I had not used it since I did the upgrade. 
      When I pushed the map button the man-icon came up but there were no tracks. The unit would mark a point and display it but no tracks to see where I had wandered.
      I also noticed the unit would not return to correct threshold in a timely manner. Nor did the other functions always work correctly...
      two different issues I think. What say yea?

      opinions welcome regarding the "best" coil-cover for the 19 inch.
      I don't like the stock cover-but, that was a forgone conclusion..
      I am not sure of the choices or durability of the manufactured items...
      I think the lexan is durable but...................more weight on a heavy coil.
      I will say that using the 19 inch makes the 14 seem a featherweight...in comparison.

      Have you ever wondered what's inside......... I know you have...... I have.......
      While I'm Ukranian, I don't understand Russian but it sure was neat to see how much they've crammed onto the boards inside our GPZ's.

      My compliments to the chef, this crow I'm eating tonight is delicious  
      Note: these are post CLR/ultrasonic clean....  
      You all know I've been pretty "honest" about my love for my 5000 and the frustrations I've had with Zeddie but she blew me away today on these three from the King Tut Placers (Gold Basin). They were down 3/4 of a foot or so and were clear as day, sung like a jay bird beautiful weee woooo dig me dig me signal.... 
      Weights (in grains)
      1.7 grains, 2.2 grains, and 3.1 grains.... 
      Very thin pieces, as can be seen in the leaning on the dime photo.... It looks like Zeddie's sleeping on the couch today, not standing up in the corner like usual. 
      I know my 5000 and 17x13 Evo would have missed them, I tested similar size... with the Sadie, maybe but these sounded like they were right on the surface, one was in a dig hole (thank you whomever left it).
      I'll eat GPZ crow all day long if it tastes like this.
      Note: I also tested on a 1.2 ouncer at DEEEEEP depth and was blown away how loud it was, even at sens 4.
      Green stripe shot is prior to cleanup.
      My favorite is the one that looks like a little shopping cart.

      Hi all, 
      Got a new video up recently, but I say (old) as the footage was taken just before Christmas!
