GPX 6000! More Than Just A Detector

Nice writeup, Dan, and welcome to the forum!  Unfortunately, between you and Brian (and Gerry from his trip to bring you guys your GPX6000's), the word about detectable gold in SD is now out.  Well, Brian had told us before but it's a lot easier to write off one person blowing smoke. 

Definitely take Gerry's class.

There is one thing from your post that confused me -- was it a typo?

The only thing I can figure is that one of you had a cellphone battery die.

🤣🤣🤣  

I believe he mentioned he was rather busy at the moment with fulfilling orders. 

I definitely will take his class, just currently busy with building a house and two young kiddos taking up alot of my time and vacation. 

Also as "Brian" mentioned above, We travel over into WY to get our nuggets

Oh for sure computers can better adjust settings quicker and more accurately. As long as the engineering behind the algorithms is solid, which with ML I tend to think they know what they are doing more than me! But if I can already run in 9  or 10 sensitivity and maybe get a little chatter, wouldn't that be better than having it auto adjust to say 7. Maybe I am not fully understanding what it is doing in Auto and Auto+

Manual sensitivity only goes up to 10. Auto+ can go above Manual 10 if conditions allow it to do so, typically in mild ground. That's where the "plus" comes from. Here is a tidbit in reference to that from JP:

"If the ground conditions are mild Auto+ has the ability to increase the detectors outright sensitivity much further than flat out manual mode, so in variable EMI areas the EMI will sound worse in Auto+ compared to full manual mode."

Its like in “Spinal Tap”. These go to 11!

There is no gold in SD, we do all our hunting in WY.

So you two are saying that Jasong is the one misleading us....  🤔

Ahhh i see.  I will have to re read what JP wrote

Great post, GoldPan”Dan”, and congrats on the fantastic nugget finds in “Wyoming”😀

Looking forward to seeing you at one of Gerry’s training classes soon.

Grab a bag of popcorn and a beer, this is gonna be a long read. (Skip to the third paragraph if you are only interesting in my review of the GPX 6000)

Great write up and congrats to your finds. Now, get the 17 inch coil and you will like the 6k even more!😍

Dan,  Sorry I had not seen or read your post earlier but I am glad I found it.  Yes your jump from a GB-2 to a GPX-6000 is certainly a big step in your young gold nugget chasing career.  Boy did you time it right with the new GPX-6000 and the kind of gold you have in WY.🙄  Seeing your picks and reading about the new Success is wanting me to get back there soon, but I know it won't happen this year.  Maybe next summer we can do some real prospecting for new patches.

Thanks for the kind words about the Field Training we offer.  Having gold detector experts helping me sure makes things easier.  It also helps the students as they get different instructors explaining the same things as sometimes I don't say it as well as Lunk.

It looks like Brian owes you a cold one.  Keep it up and I look forward to seeing more posts.

      Who has run the sp01 on their  6
      I had a crack , with my cogs as well , but found the cables a pain in the arse ...
      Also with the 6,s headphones on 70% volume on the phonesand the detector backed off a tad  I hear the feint murmurs ok I reckon anyway 😃

      So some of you know that my 6000 arrived defective right out of the box and that I sent it back to be replaced the morning after I got it. Well the new replacement arrived yesterday and the detector works as I assume it should. Well, at least it will sound off on a nugget, so I assume it is working properly. I have the 14" DD on to test that out. When I picked up the 11" to pull it out of it's plastic bag, I noticed something odd on the top of the coil. There was a crescent shaped crack in the coil. What in the world is going on with Minelab and their quality control.?!! People spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on their detectors, you would think they would be more strict and precise with their quality control procedures. I sent the 11" coil back to be replaced, this morning at 9 am. It is possible it could have happened in shipping, however the inner box and shipping box were in great condition. No smashed areas anywhere on the boxes. Anyone else  want to chime in about their particular Minelab detector defect. If Minelab is reading this, you have alot of people out there spending alot of money on your detectors because they are the best-Hands down, but it seems like since the sdc2300 came out the quality control is going down hill. I understand some defects can get by or crop up over a little bit of use, but this is not good.

      Yes I finally did get a chance to hunt for larger gold with the GPX-6000.
      This video has some quirks and I am sorry.  Shooting video is not my expertise as you can tell.  Error #1 and many of us do it.  Keep the phone Horizontal (left to right) to get full size viewing.  Error #2, be sure to have someone else shooting the video while holding camera Horizontal and not shaking as much.  Now for the bit of info that many of you may have missed in this video.  I won't reply with answer yet, but will give a hint "sound".
      So yes a get a little excited and yes I mumble and stumble for words.  Heck I sometimes freeze up and slowly look around to make sure nobody sees it or me.  I have heard other do that as well, why?  What would you do?

      I haven't seen very much conversation about the comparison between these two detectors now that the GPX 6000 is creeping into the SDC 2300's territory.  So far, the GPX gets both smaller and deeper gold.  Has anyone other observations?

      I've been reading about DD and mono coils for the GPX. I'm confused
    • By TnRebel
      I'm checking both out. Need some input by others.
