    GPZ 7000 Aftermarket Coil

    G'day phrunt The guy Stan who I was with when he tested the 18" coil says an 11" coil is being tested at the moment, also a 16"x13" and a 24" so time will tell. All I know is the 18" works very well and if the other sizes do the same it will be great. The underneath inside picture of that coil does look complicated, I have no idea what the underneath inside of the after market coil looks like, but the guys that are making them seem to know how to do it. I'm watching what is happening. 😊 cheers dave

    GPZ 7000 Aftermarket Coil

    A couple of videos of the After market coil, not real good quality on account of a limited data allowance but it gives an idea. cheers dave

    GPZ 7000 Aftermarket Coil

    G'day JW, there is a small coil but it's not here in Australia as yet, the 18" coil is the only one here for a test run yet. They have been using various sizes of coils overseas. 😊 we just need to be patient. cheers dave

    I saw this coil on his GPZ7000 in action the other day, posted up a bit of a report on the other forum. I can say it worked very well. http://golddetecting.forumotion.net/t25940p60-aftermarket-for-gpz cheers dave

    Battery Alternative For SDC 2300

    Yep they work, I now have 3 choices, the original "C" cells they only get used in an emergency, the 18650's with the adapters, I like these and these were the first ones I tried and used them for about 5 months detecting last year. The 26650's with the adapters that Wes made up for me, work just the same, they will get a good work out this year, just like the 18650's did last year, so I know I won't be stuck for batteries in the SDC2300. cheers dave

    GPX 4500 Mods

    Don't believe everything you see on youtube. I know which one I would pick out of the modded or a 7000 and it's not the modded ones. As for saying the older 4500's aren't as good as the new ones is not right either, the only advantage a new 4500 has over an old one is it will have 3 years of warranty. The best advantage you will get with the gpx4500 is use the new type flat wound coils, either Nugget finder or Coiltek types, spend your money on these type of coils instead of spending it on getting the detector mods. cheers dave

    Battery Alternative For SDC 2300

    Thanks Wes, the adaptors turned up today by post from the USA to Aus which was in my book pretty quick I reckon. Wes has done a very good job on these and I just need a bit of time to get out and try them, I'm sure they will be great. Thanks again Wes. cheers dave
  10. Yep JW I recognise it no worries, I see it in most of your posts and the dig holes, they are digging holes all over Aussie and NZ cheers dave
  11. Well done JW, great pictures and story to go with them as always, good way to fill in the day finding some gold ay. cheers dave

    Google Chrome And Xchange2

    Has anybody heard anything about the Xchange 2 problem being fixed, as it was not compatible with the latest software upgrade for the 7000 was released many many months ago. I am not sure why there has been no progress on the xchange2 problem and I get it that some people don't use it nor do they care, but for those of us that do use it and want it fixed as there has been ample time for Minelab programmers or whoever it is that fixes this stuff to get on with it. We paid top $ for a top of the range ML GPZ7000 which had all these features and now it is crippled and it should be fixed. cheers dave
