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.

      Maybe a new thread if you have the time JP.  "How to target large, deep gold with the GPZ?"  Is it your conservative settings or something different again?  How does the audio differ, etc? 
      There are bits and pieces (linked below) that maybe all add up to an answer but if there are any other secrets you want to add JP,  I'll listen

       I have been painfully considering a purchase of a 7000.  Seeing the gold a friends 7000 is getting that seems to be out of reach of a 5000 is giving me reason for this consideration.  However with the areas I used to have access to that facilitates the use of the large coils are being lost due to development and I would have little or no areas to go that there would be a benefit to the large coils.  If Minelab would make a small coil like the 11 inch diameter that is stock with all the other models up to the 7000 it would justify a purchased.  I wonder if it’s the technology in the electronics that will not work with a small coil.

      Seeing some barely-used gpz 7000's coming across the auction block.  
      Weren't there early ones that had issues?
      If so how were these issues resolved?
      How can you tell if the unit on the auction block is not one of these?
      Having not owned one yet I'm a little behind and appreciate any feedback.

      Hello Johnathan the GPZ 7000 has been out for a while now, is there any plans to do a DVD. I could see how a soft ware upgrade could potentially make it harder to give any advice on settings as upgrades come along. Or is the whole thing a big head ache.

      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.

      I updated to the latest firmware in september, sunday when I was detecting I would lose my sound through the wireless, I plugged in headphones and no sound from the machine through them either EXCEPT for turning it on, and also when the WM wireless connects I hear that (but probably from the unit not the headphones)
      Anyone else have issues, I do see 2 other threads but have tried both fixes including updating again. No dice, need the GPZ!
