Why were gpzers wearing them out quicker ?    Not made so well ? Heavier machines? Different coil material ? 

Using them 8-10 hours a day weeks on end. The stock cover is softer than some, and the machine is heavy. But mainly just use. I went through two Minelab and one Nugget Finder scuff covers with my GPZs. I like to let the coil ride on the ground.

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

Go to the pub and want a schooner it’s 6 bucks .  Only wanna spend 4 drink a seven ounce 😜 

Don't tell us your finally going to update from the GPX4000 Mungass? 😲 The 6k must be the goods!

Bit of tongue in cheek mate. Always gets me on a new release we nearly set the price by speculation & saying what we'd pay. Sometimes I wonder if the majority said bugger that & speculated on a lower price point whether they might hit the shops a bit cheaper. I like keeping the moths in my wallet but will let them loose if it's a goer! 👍

p.s. also don't mind paying $6 for a schooner of good, cold beer either 😋

If you’re worried about a coil cover you just as well pack it up and go home.

 I know running your coil  1/4 inch off the ground will save your coil cover and the guy that comes behind you will thank you for leaving him something.

 This holds true be you coin are nugget hunter.

Found a guys $3000 custom wedding ring last week at the beach - he was in the surf with a shovel and colander digging for his ring(no detector!) that he  lost in the water the week before. I found it in about 20 minutes - reward was a hearty hand shake - so maybe i am overcharging Gerry with the  hearty handshake and should ask for a vigorous wave.

yes - I've found owners of many a  ring over the years. Usually something comes my way. His logic was that he was going to find it anyway with the shovel and colander!

As you highly experienced operators know, the hearing capabilities of different detector operators can vary greatly, I only detected a slight woo weee sound and had to listen several times.......

It seems like there should have been much stronger target responses considering the size and depth of the targets.  😉

Cheers,

Jeff

What are you referring to - a video or a first person hands-on opportunity with the machine?  I have yet to come across any video that demonstrated the GPX 6K audio.

      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.
