If it is a new improved lighter GPZ there will be a lot of disappointed 6000 owners.

Not me! If it is the next GPZ, I’ll be having my own Xmas promo/bundle fire-sale to help fund its purchase, especially if it comes stock with a concentric coil this time. 🤣

Darn it!!  I guess I'll jump through their hoop one more time.

What if they are going to release two machines on the same day?  A GPZ and the Manticore.  "Good Things Come In Twos."

Be nice if they took some of the improvements made with Manticore, and used them to refresh the Equinox with an update also. :wink:

Discrimination is all they're missing now seeing they removed it from the 6000, and the GPZ design seems like they could possibly do discrimination.  I don't really care much for discrimination around here but I can see some would benefit greatly from it.  I actually get quite excited when it's an iron target as it means its possibly an old square nail as other than old rusty matchboxes there isn't all that much junk to find, it's all the damn pellets and no discrimination is getting rid of them. The square nails are very rare finds for me, I've found about 5 in my entire time detecting.  I gave them all to JW who was doing a bit of a display of old prospecting tools hanging above his stone fireplace in his lounge room and needed the old nails to hold them up, it looks really cool.

I guess we will find out in under a week now if it's a new GPZ or just more Manticore hype of a different type.

I just don't need anymore detectors after the Manticore, I'm just happy with my current detectors!

🤣😂😭 Forgive me Simon, if I don't believe this statement! But thanks for a good laugh! Does the quote" When hell freezes over" need to be applied here?? Time will tell!!

Love ya man! Happy Thanksgiving!!🦃👍👍

Thanks Joe 🙂

I really don't know, I think I'm done with buying detectors, I'm in my happy place at the moment and it would take something dramatic with performance to change my mind.  Target ID's on a PI comes to mind!

The Manticore may well be my last detector, at least for some time.  

Have yourself a great Thanksgiving, tuck into some turkey for me, it's near impossible to buy that here.

   I'd definitely be onboard for a PI like that too!! And l have reached near critical mass on detectors, so.... 👍 As for the turkey problem, that's unfortunate!😔  But you can always grow your own! Just don't get too attached, come "chopping" time!!

   Besides, KFC is a universally approved substitute!!😁👍👍

There is a new Manticore discussion video on facebook that is impressive.  This guy got to use it at a competition and explains a little about the helpfulness of the Target Trace feature.   It's on this page.  Just scroll down a little to see it.
