I've been a successful business person in my life, and so the business aspects of metal detecting are something I follow more than most. It's an interesting industry to watch as it is fairly small, an

I think it is business, nothing more. If you want to understand Minelab, think like a shareholder, not a detectorist. This is pure speculation, but I bet I'm close. They found they can make an Eq

Steve,  Your post and comments say way more than most folks realize.  I wanted to call out a few knuckleheads and their silly comments on this forums, as they have no flippin clue what they are talkin

Lo siento, no puedo revelar el precio ni dónde lo compré porque no se ha lanzado oficialmente. Por lo que escuché, el suministro no será abundante al principio, así que ya quería hacer fila.

Can you tell if it is higher or lower than the gpx 5000?

And if they make a 10" &/or an 8" for the GPZ you would be in boots & all too. Right, who wouldn't be?

I guess this is all getting off topic & time will tell when the 6000 has been waved about for a bit. But knowing Minelab it will be a winner & have an edge in certain situations. All their detectors do.

I rarely use the 12” NF I have because my primary focus with GPZ is always about max depth so I focus on the larger coils ‘Always”. My situation is totally reverse of you guys in the US with your steep mountains and tough Terrain. If I detected in hillier environs then I would for sure be using the smaller coils more but 12” would be about it. Once you go below that size the depth advantage of ZVT relative to larger gold target sizes signs off dramatically. Plus I do have the use of the GPX 6000 remember. 😉😇

Are you getting some kind of early release 6000 from Minelab, Gold Catcher? Because as far as I know dealers don't even know how much they are nor when they are coming out in the US, how would they be taking payment for one already or even know what to charge you if you paid someone already?

Sorry Jasong I should not have mentioned that and I edited my comments accordingly. The price has not been determined yet.

Since the GPX-5000 was $5800 when it first came out and this is a newer detector with better ergonomics, more user friendly and the claims say better than a 5000 at small gold,, it would only make sense the price to be over $5800.  Hope this helps.

      Get a GPX 6000 to use on your old patches before someone else does!  You will be glad you did.

      I was on the team, as were Nenad and JP. Any others here? In any case, if you have specific questions about the GPX 6000, ask away, and get straight answers. If it violates our NDA expect to be told so. In general, Minelab simply does not want how they make the sausage advertised to one and all. So don’t ask about how the sausage got made, or why it tastes like it does. That part is done, and we can’t talk about it anyway. Is the machine perfect? No. But I’ll tell you what, it’s a sweetie for sure. I smell a detector classic, simple, to the point, powerful, gets the job done. That being the case, everyone who took part in it is pretty proud of the final effort. My part was modest, I’m sure, but I for one will be bragging about it for as long as I’m around. Congratulations to Minelab and the entire team. My special thanks to Eng and Simon. 👍🏼
      So any questions about the best little detector ever (just go with it)?  Yes, I do think that if a person can afford it, then this machine is the machine to have right now for the U.S. If you are like me, you can ditch everything else, use the GPX 6000 exclusively, and be a nugget slayer. Add a Gold Monster or Equinox 800 with discrimination for nugget detecting perfection.
