The 6000 does what the 5000 can do depth wise on larger gold even slightly better, but what’s the point of providing it that way to the market when there is already something much better out there for

Minelab is basically just trying to create their own social media. That's what "detexperts" are, and that's why they are choosing their own no-name relic hunting channels to give exclusive looks into

I think these pictures sum up the GPX 6000 very concisely and also how I feel about those people who continue to suggest my input is biased or just marketing hype!! Tiny piece at stupid depth for

Impressive

Only thing I would add in defense of the 7, he did say they were in Difficult ground setting, which is a filter and does not run the detector at full depth seeking powers, unless of course soils dont allow for Normal setting

Finally some actual measurements...thank you very much to these fellows! Add me to the impressed list as well, I think the 6000 had a better response on the big deep nugget with both coils, and clearly better response on the smaller, shallow stuff. 

Definitely curious how they both do in Normal and at high gains now.

I am also impressed!  Like Jason was saying these are the vids I wanted to see too.  I would like one though with the same weight at different depths, large and small.  I can see why though they added no threshold as a setting.  The threshold sounds just like an SDC, never silky smooth.  So SDC owners will be used to that and used to how very faint targets sound.  One thing is clear though, this this is so sensitive I could see people not digging targets that overload like that thinking its garbage because the old machines it would sound like garbage.  So for those who do not dig all, be prepared to now dig all 😁

Jason, just an FYI, found this comment on FB GPZ 7000 users of Australia from Andy Laurenson:

So far (3 evenings work) I am extremely impressed with the 6000. Going over salty ground that I avoided with the 7000 and have found 2 nice specimens and 2 sub 1gram nuggets.

Nenad also mentioned that the GPX 6000 worked well in wet clay soils when he was field testing.

And that was in the difficult ground setting and the sensitivity set at only 4.

yeah and the 7000 coil was making an audible scraping noise on the ground the 6000 was off the ground .......

The contrarian within me says 'Look how good the 2300 did!'  No wonder people like it.

      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.
