GPX 17 Coil Commentary

I have only been able to swing the 6000 with the 17 inch coil

Still no news on Oz availability JP?  

Probably for another thread but you're obviously finding the 17" better weight wise?  Ground noise handling?  EMI?  On the small stuff?  Still picking up the tiny lead shot or has it weeded these out?  

Cheers 👍

I think this is a timely reminder of just how much DP forum means to us collectively, and the amount of unseen work that Steve does in the background. I personally could care less about Google rankings (Steve probably does if the forum makes him money I suppose) but do care when my favourite site is on the blink. 

Here’s to sending good luck vibes and lots of gold finds moments to Steve wherever he is. 😊 OH and BTW Steve was 100% correct about the GPX6000 with the GPX17 coil, I’ve managed to injure my arm recently (really bad tennis elbow from swinging big heavy coils for way too many years) so as it mends I have only been able to swing the 6000 with the 17 inch coil. That combination is right up there for THE best rigs I have ever used for prospecting/patch hunting. 😃

2 weeks of very casual detecting/prospecting in new ground, around on 3 ounces.

Right on JP!  Any of those big chunks come at good depth?

Tomorrow I pick up a 17 x 13 mono coil for the GPX6000 in Adelaide, South Australia. Only 2 available in this first delivery which have already been snapped up - so looks like stock will be slowly rationed out. Just wish i could get to NSW or Victoria to give it a better try out than the flogged fields in SA.

Hiiiiiiiiiii guys!!!! So glad DP is back online. Thanks whoever fixed it. Joined Prospecting Australia in the meantime as I had already given up after daily tries to log in. It's an ok forum, but just not the same as DP. I got my 17 but thus far was unable to use it due to all the wildfires and the crazy weather/smoke. But I have my full face respirator ready for this weekend because I WILL go !

Righto JP this holding the 6K 17 coil supply off from the rest of us in OZ just because you want to flog all our spots is totally selfish, even somewhat corrupt. I'll forgive you if you send me a 6K 17 coil pleeeeeze....

      Early wet Weather in Northern Nevada, sure messed up a few of my hunts!  But, this last Hunt was called Rain or Shine!  Be there or miss out with the original hunting party.  We had half the amount of coils on the ground during this hunt and managed to find a few sweet spots of dinks to add to our pokes.  Rain on us with snow in the ground 200’ above us all 4-Days!  6000, Retune Button got a workout.  I kept the 11” Mono on.  Tried the DD for a few hours with no luck, don’t know if the ground and line I took was bad, but the guys behind me where finding nuggets…so back to the 11”.  My truck is out in the drive way in the wet Weather still loaded up with me gear!  Getting wet again to unload it, I can’t wait 🤨
      Until the next Hunt!

      Is there or has there been any comparison testing done in the field on depth with the 6000 vs the 7000 using the NF 12" Z-search coil.
      Thanks . . .

      I had something strange happen, today. I had my GPX 6000 battery fully charged and fresh off the charger.  It had completed its charge cycle and then trickle charged overnight.  I popped it in the detector and started detecting. Within five minutes the battery meter dropped from three bars to two bars.  If I turned off the detector and let it sit for a 5-10 minutes and then turned it back on, it would go back up to three bars for a short period of time before then going back to two bars. Has anyone else noticed this with theirs?

      as I already put in another post, I just bought a second-hand gpx 5000.  It comes with the comander 11 DD and 11Mono coils.  I would like if it is possible for a colleague to recommend a coil to complement the ones it brings.  Its use would be to search for coins.  I've been looking at the detech 15 inch DD ultra sensing.  If anyone has used it, what can you tell me about it?

      Hey all, still have a gpx 4000 I bought from AK M&D. Guess it's time for an upgrade. My Question is does the 4500 have enough improvements to justify the upgrade
    • By The_Stalker
      After reading all items available I am confused.  It's probably just me so I apologize if this is a dumb question.  In soil that has low mineralization which coil will go deeper and is more suitable, a DD coil or a mono coil of equal size?  Or in low mineralization does it not matter if you use a DD or a mono coil?
