Based on Jasong's report that a GPX 6000 was on display in Quartzsite, Beatup and I drove up there this morning from sunny Yuma.  We did indeed see and touch the machine.  There will apparently be oth

This photo was taken in the early stages of development. It looks very light and robust. The face has been distorted to protect tester the grey hair does not match JP but it was taken in Leonora Carav

I’m still effectively gagged with no comment 😂

Is always crazy, every intro. Every model tends to be a classic of sorts, yet every new one people ask "Are you sure it will find gold?" etc.  (I jest, but you'd be amazed). It took me a little while, but starting with the SD2200D going forward I learned to just ditch what I had and get the next. Looking back I've no regrets about that. I get a few months lead time while everyone else is sorting it out. No doubt a repeat here.  :smile:

The difference between the 7000 pre-release and the 6000 seems to be lack of field performance reports. Steve and JP's field reports on the 7000 convinced me to take a loan out to buy the biggest purchase (at the time) of my life, and I'm glad I did, on day 1. There was a real feeling in the air at that time that the 7000 would really open up some new ground, and it did.

They should let their testers talk about the 6000 now...

Re: the DD coil.  Apparently this DD design cannot be compared to our old understanding of GPX DD coils.  No discrimination at all and separate settings for either EMI or Salt/mineralized ground.  She emphasized there is no comparison to DD coils of old.

Ouch! I was hoping for some form of discrimination.... but if it eliminates the EMI in my area , I am good with the trade off. 🙂

 You have celebrity status being you had your hands on a 6000 . Your the first to report on one.

Hey maybe we can get someone to read their palms 😄 Maybe there were microscopic traces left and we can recreate the machine 😂 Actually, I would be happy with just knowing the price before they release it for sale.

Well in that case they reduced the GPZ10000 by around 30%(and renamed it too), so in my logic 😅, the  GPX6000 should be around $4200. 🙏 I'd take a GPX 4200 any day.

      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.
