Still Running My Heavy GPZ 7000 And This Is Why


Recommended Posts

Nailed it Steve.  That's exactly what I've been thinking.  Although I think the Nox was a bit of an accident as it's made little need for a GM1000.

pinpointed the target in a crevice or depression (seen in picture below).  Low and behold, it was a nice gold nugget, 4.6 Dwt's, just shy of 1/4 Troy Ounce.  I was pleasantly surprised to say the least, didn't expect it.  

That is a very nice nugget and it looks a lot like a dog bone.

Great catch at that depth and some day I will be as good as some of the people on here.

Good luck on your next hunt.

Thanks for starting a good thread Rob.  Nice piece of gold you got there.

Sally and I have been trading time between Zed and 6000 for several days now. Both have their roles in our hunting. So far the 6000 has done the scoring with one nugget each, but the 7000 will stay in the arsenal. May add a smaller coil to it though.

(Another) nice find Rob. An interesting comparison test with the 6000 as well. Thanks for taking the time to tell us about it.

I have been constantly amazed at the small gold I am finding with the 7000 and the NF coil. It's crazy. Two of the recent flakes I've found do not set off my scale that goes down to two decimal places. The weight of the detector is the biggest problem, I am 5' 7" 135 pounds so my lifesaver has been the Hipstick.

It's nice to see some bigger deep ones coming out of the ground.

The GPX 6000 is excelling when it comes to tiny gold is getting more depth on the tiny ones than the GPZ does with the standard coils and also the NF coil which is similar in size to the standard coil.  The GPZ is very capable of tiny gold, but lacks the depth of the 6000 on it, using a smaller coil on the GPZ helps close that gap a bit I think.

Here are a few pictures of some all time popular coils that are ‘similar in size’🥴, all of them have their place, all of them are noticeably different to each other, all of them have found a lot of gold and in a very large amount of cases all are collectively owned by individuals. 🙉 🙈............🙊 And I’d be prepared to put money down that Rob has successfully used them all.
