Prepare For Some " Dumb Blond " GPZ Questions Guys :-)

26 posts in this topic

Hey Jen, congrats!!!   I think you're going to love the ZED.  

I never used the stock harness, either.  I put the harness back in the box and got myself a Camelpack.   I use this with the hipstick so that I only have one setup to take on and off.

Secondly, I really had to remove all metal below chest height.  Trying to pinpoint a target less than .1 gram is hard to do with any metal nearby.

Some people will disagree with me, but you will hear the Hermit pick if it is on your belt.  (By they way, you're right, this pick is freak'n awesome)

As for "Dumb Blond" questions, you've seen plenty of my dumb blond questions on this forum... and people still are kind enough to give good advice :)

Oh, and lastly, I would keep the shoes ... you're style'n  :)  ha..ha..

I have problems with my headphones pinpointing.  Do they make metal-less headphones?

Robsdetectors also has the hipstick.  See his ebay store.

Use ear bud style, much smaller amount of metal surface area.

Thanks guys, just ordered a medium (I'm 5'11" tall) hip stick from Rob to use along with the Pro-Swing 45 that came with the ZED.

Jen, many people insert the clip on to their pants or pants belt...I donot like that because the pressure pushes one's pants down and the hipstick rides on the hip-bone. I put the hipstick on my harness belt, just to the side of my hipbone...very comfortable for me. I have things arranged so the hipstick cannot keep sliding toward the back...

I also suggest Doc's swingy-thingy bungee...way better than that cheap rubber band Minelab keeps using...

      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. ????

      There are a couple excellent photos of this product at Nenad's website.

      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.
      * Fly not included in weight

      Hots on the tiny stuff is not always good if it buries you in tiny surface trash. What say you GPZ 19 owners - can it be set to miss bird shot, tiny wire, or other small surface trash?
