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

Recommended Posts


Hi Jen, Congrats on getting a 7000. You are going to love it. Crikey.... the evo's didnt get a very long work out. :biggrin: I was a fan of the hip stick for years, but on getting the Pro Swing 45 harness with the built in strut I have never gone back to the hip stick. I dont know what the problem is that people have with that harness. Once you fit it to your body it is just effortless. I now have another Pro Swing 45 harness that came with the Zed. I have only fitted the one "J" strut to my detector swinging side & havnt bothered with setting up the other side or use the bungee "bridle" bridge, but just hook the bungee on to the "D" shackle on the harness.  I have no problems or trouble with the Minelab quick release bungee set up either. Here is a you tube clip on setting up the Pro Swing 45 harness. I think this may have been put up before but it is quite appropriate on this thread. 

Ridge Runner above above took the words out of my mouth, Re the dumb blond questions.

Go Girl.

Good luck out there

Hello JW,

Have you used the 19'" coil with the Pro Swing harness. Thanks.

Hi Col. No mate I havnt & I doubt very much that I will get the 19" coil for my Zed. I would prefer a smaller coil than the 14" as our gold is mostly small, as you may have seen in my finds. The smaller coil would be great for tight spots where I just cant swing or poke & prod that 14" coil. To answer your question further though.....I have used a Nugget Finder 25 inch coil open web design with the Pro Swing Harness on my 4500 as well as the 18" commander both mono & DD (they arent too light) also a solid 20" NF coil too & had no problems swinging them all day. I did make up my own swing arm though for the 25" NF coil to combat the inertia & to control it better. Not sure what the weight difference may be to the 19" Zed coil as I can see that is where you are heading with me banging on about people having problems with the Pro Swing Harness. People were complaining about the Pro Swing Harness long before the Zed came out & long before the 19" coil. What ever works for you & makes your detecting comfortable. Thanks. 

Good luck out there

Well I did it..... recent success... [ snip ]

Good to hear you were finally able to, ahem, swing it for a Zed, Jen.. Of course, you do realize in light of some of your recent finds you'll also need to get a longer pick handle too, right..? :rolleyes:

      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!

      JP has put up a youtube video about this new ground balancing method.

      Above is a quote from Jasong, from another thread that hits the nail on the head. Somewhat a forbidden topic on OZ forums, which I guess says a lot about social media. This matter has been touched on by others when speaking about the "new age" coils on the Xs in other threads. While I`m a confirmed and dedicated Z user, I recognise because I`ve experienced the ability of these coils and how they have closed the gap( in the field on undisturbed gold), plus in some cases exceeded the Zs ability. Saying that I`ve also experienced more cases where the Z exceeds the Xs ability.
      But it is interesting and really says it all about the dominance of ML, their only true competition to their latest serious gold detector is their model it replaced. This has been so for how many years?  What are the other detector manufacturers doing? And why is it sort of "taboo" to post about this subject?

      GPZ Coil coming soon.

      Jonathan, any truth in the rumour that Minelab are considering introducing a lightweight version of the 7000? A proper prospecting detector rather than a modified military monstrousity that the Z currently is? 
      You being close to Minelab, I'm hoping you may be in a position to enlighten us. I for one would consider an aquisition should this come to pass.
