Great to see you posting again JP, and better yet to see you getting the gold! :smile:

If anyone is wondering about this comment from JP "The Super D coils really do need to be kept above saturation effect for maximum depth on the deeper pieces" here are two previous threads that address the question in detail:

Minelab GPZ 7000 A Super VLF ( Saturable Soil Tips )

and

Minelab White Paper - GPZ 7000 In Difficult Ground

A ripper session JP, pretty spiffy! Way to make up for being stonkered in WA. Can’t wait to see what else you uncover there.

A touch off topic but I am 5' 7" and have found that using the Minelab harness including the J-struts and a Hipstick makes detecting easier than using a 5000.

It takes a little work to get the balances right but it's worth it.

That being said, it IS a heavy detector to use in the way that makes it work best; precise and consistent coil control.

I agree... I've found with care, I'm able to swing the 19" coil without anything other than the hip stick and stock harness. JP helped me in the beginning with some advice about being very careful about bouncing it off things like I was use to with the GPX and I've really learned that careful is quiet with these coils. Good to the point that I don't even have to use a $375.00 aftermarket harness I bought for the weight, it now sits in the classifieds section collecting dust.

Great post JP, nice to see you back.

      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!

      I don't know who found it but they were using a 5000 and Norvic does not use it any more so ...

      I`ve got a bench at home that`s been getting more and more cluttered and yesterday I decided to have a clean up. In amongst all this stuff, I came across a jar that had this speci in it. I have no memory of it, so I asked the better half about it, and she has no memory of it either, but  seeing I don`t remember it she`s claiming ownership, and that`s OK because I really don`t think it`s mine.  I recon there is at least a half a gram of gold in this piece and neither of us remember it. It may have been on the bench for 5 or 6 years

      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?
