‘nailed’ a solid little 12-gram slug ...

I hate it when those little ones get in the way!

Very nice video JP.  When does it get 'nice' in your area for prospectors to get some training?

Thanks for posting JP, it takes a lot of time to do vids. Great to see you have taken the time out mate.

Great instructional video. Thanks JP. I am impressed with my 19 coil and its depth capability but have yet to come to grips with the best settings for certain locations. I need to put the 19 on the stick and leave it on for a while...now the grass has been chewed down to a workable level in the places I detect. RDD

Haven't watched it yet due to limited and expensive service out here but looking forward to it.

Me having a thick head, sometimes things need to be watched a bunch of time before they sink in. So can it be downloaded for watching at your leisure or can you only watch it on line?

Hi MadTuna :biggrin:

if using Firefox there is a download video plugin that you can install to allow you to download. The video is on the main Minelab YouTube channel as well as you'll need to view it in a main Youtube page (not embedded in a web page like the forum) for the download option to display once installed in Firefox.

Thankyou Miss Jennifer.

Unfortunately I don't have Firefox. I'm not sure we have that over here, I have Telstra which is about the only one that works out where I am. (remote WA)

Cheers!

Firefox works ok with Telstra just gotta watch your usage as you know Telstra's always got a hand out, or in your pocket.  Open up a Yahoo mail account and download it from there next time your in town however I reckon you have good band width if you can see a video out bush madtuna :)

Another great contribution JP and Steve.  Got a bit of a kick in the last part of that vid watching JP dig like a honey badger and hearing the pitch of the detector shoot off like an angry humming bird. Hahh :)

Definitely pick on the clue advice he is giving about the super fine tuning of the gb by pumping the coil, by making the user button in manual.  He threw out this tidbit of information when the 7000 first came out. But it is the most important part of this video IMHO.

Good point Scott. I too have made the user button option to be able to switch to Manual tuning. It is a great way of making sure not to tune out a signal as you pinpoint and not throw out the GB while digging a target.

      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.
