New XP Backpack Coming Soon!

Recommended Posts


 It looks well made but on that same note it could cost me more than my ORX.

 Here I just bought a new gun and I don’t have a case for it yet ..

 I think I need to sit down and prioritize my thinking on what I need next .

 What I should say is what I don’t need at all .


PS  They say you can’t take it with you. Well stand back I’m going to give it my best to do so.

Chuck I agree, doesn't do any good to have just set in the bank. Might as well have some fun while you can.

Nice looking backpack!

Compared to the ones I have received from White's, this one looks well made and useful. XP at least put some thought in designing the backpack compared to other detector manufacturers.

 I’m like a friend about his guns it’s just the joy of owning one .

 My wife’s idea of ruffing it is some high dollar hotel and be sure it has HBO . Well I’m not to that point yet and I may never have the need for a backpack but again it’s the joy of owning one.

 Of what I could see in your post some thinking went into making it.

 It’s odd that something hasn’t came across my email from XP being I get their message all the time.

 If got the ORX and the Simplex but just maybe the Vanquish.

 It’s like this one if by land that’s the ORX . Two if by Sea that’s the Simplex. The third is the Vanquish just because I want it.

 Glenn I love your state being I’ve spent a few hours dredging and just enjoying life there.

 Have a great day!


PS  Some years back in the 90’s I wrote a story on how a nugget could hide behind a grain of black sand. It ran in GPAA mag .

Where did the time go ?

I hear ya Chuck! I wrote a few articles on detecting and nuggethunting for Western & Eastern in the 90's. I and my wife were in the first White's infomercial with our nuggets also in the 90's, but as time went on it was more about going out and doing more on what you were writing about. I wish I had all the energy and ambition I had back then.

You have a great day also!

Looks like a well built backpack to me. On a side note, the Tarsacci comes packed in a very nice backpack. Thing is, I have never used it, 🤔. A thirty min. ride in any direction here and your at the beach. Maybe someday I will get to use it.

      Minelab has just applied for an Australian Design Patent for a "Tray".
      Anyone have any ideas what this would be?

      Sorry for the cross post in meet and greet.
      New to the forum, just wanted to say hello before I started to ask questions here haha. Several years ago I bought a junker metal detector to test out the hobby, it died a couple years later now I'm back.
      Wondering how good Kellyco customer service is. Ordered a new MD from them and after 10 days of patiently waiting, I was sent what Is obviously a used machine. I paid for a new one so I'm a bit irritated about it. It's Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow to call. I could have ordered one through Amazon, but thought I'd give them a try. Any issues with Kellyco before? Not looking to bad mouth anyone, just wondering if this is common business practice. They have been around a long time I see, so I guess I expected more from them.

      Got word recently, that both Tim Mallory and Mike Scott have lost their jobs at 1st Texas.  I think it was, maybe 2 years ago when Gene Scullion and others lost their jobs too.  That makes me wonder about Lupe, who is one of the workers at the main plant.
      I guess Covid has affected more than just a few businesses.

      An intrepid forum member passed this along. Interesting, as the name does not sound “recreational” to me, more like something for geologists or exploration companies?
      November 29, 2020 note: We know now this is related to the new GPX 6000 introduction.
