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

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

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.

Although good to see the first "test comparison", I would caution to rush to early judgements. There is so much more that needs to be considered when comparing machines and performances that I doubt such a simple test will serve justice. The 7000 stands out in so many aspects that are not considered in the simple test experiment shown in the video.

      Dear brothers, I did not find any clear review comments regarding the Minelab GPX 6000 detector My question is, has anyone tried the GPX 6000 and it turns out that it is able to find more gold better than others?

      Hi all, just found on Gumtree Aust a Minelab GPX 6000 for sale. Only the box in the picture. Listed yesterday by Shawn Gib from Sydney. Asking $9000.
      Says your beating the que price is firm. Does anyone know who this is? I take it is a fake so be aware, or someone has one from a dealer? cheers sturt

      Firstly my thanks to the guys at Coiltek.
      After dreadful weather here in central Victoria, and recovering from surgery, this morning dawned clear and sunny. Nice hot coffee and before the dew was off the ground I had the 6000 cranked up. Rudimentary reading of the manual the previous day saw the new detector humming sweetly after a short warm up. JP had been most helpful with a few tips on the local Finders forum, so it was quite easy to feel a certain amount of confidence as I ground balanced and paired up the headphones, which are surprisingly good compared to some of Minelab's previous offerings.
      There is a shallow but substantial lead running west to east across my fifty acre property which yielded a small amount of gold to my GPZ a few years back. I had gridded out the most promising area at the time, so it seemed obvious that this would be a good place to test my new toy. Not bothering to take a pick I headed off towards the east end of the block.
      Where on earth did these signals come from? A number were I am sure just shotgun pellets, but a few were at a reasonable depth as I tilted the coil to get some idea of just how deep. The more interesting signals I marked with boot scuffs and will check out within the next few days. I did not get to go back for my pick as a visitor turned up to have me check his detector.
      Initial impressions; Pretty damned good.

      Six Thousand dollars to put out on anything is a large investment to make .
       I just wonder how many of you have committed yourself to buying the 6000 already?
       I’ve had a long talk with one Minelab dealer and he has been told that the 6000 may slow in coming to the US because of the high volume going to other countries. That’s due to the gold rush is there not here.
       For you that live in gold country it may be a easy discussion but for those of us  that don’t we may have to think about it a while.
       I myself don’t have a bass boat parked in my drive with a big motor and trailer so this year I’m going to be good to me .
       I will have a 6000 as soon as I can get  my hot little hands on one.
       How about you is Santa going to come early?
       The Best!

      8 grammer found at 11 inches.  Nothing special as most detectors PIs should see something that big at that depth, but at least we get to see a big one finally found on film.

      I don't know how many 6000s are already 'in the system' as complete units in the box ready for use but the Covid count in Malaysia is forcing them to shut down some things.

      Be prepared for a long wait with the chip shortage.
