  1. For me, it has to have performance greater than the 5000. I couldn't care less about batteries, leads, speakers or screens. Performance is the only reason ill upgrade a detector. If its better ill buy one. Ill be keeping the zed though. From PA forum. https://rogermontgomery.com/codan-goes-from-strength-to-strength/
  2. Anyone had experience being part of a group that owns claims that allows its members to prospect on? Here in Australia "Little Ripper Gold Inc" has formed a not for profit group that has 4 or 5 claims already and will be using members yearly fee of $100 to buy more. Im told that you Americans have similar setups over there. https://www.facebook.com/FreeGoldCamps/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/LittleRipperGold/
  3. The Nugget has been found! Big thanks to the wider community, the 83 yr old owner and his wife are very, very grateful, relieved and very happy. #fb This update came from the Dalwallinu Police on Twitter
  4. Im afraid Simon that my gold tally for the year would only feed me for a month at best. As you know first hand working hard and investing sensibly pays off later on. I still feel its a little flashy for what im used to but the wife talked me into it when she saw it at the dealer. My Prado that im driving now is 17 years old and not that safe anymore. My wife said she wont let me drive to Perth in it next year when i go prospecting. (8000km round trip)
  5. Sort of hoping there is a wait now on the 8" coil. Have just got back from the car dealer in Melbourne. Went in to buy a new Ranger Wildtrak and walked out with a Ranger Raptor. Id be to scared to ask the wife for a penny for at least a couple of months.
  6. Up most of the night with little sleep ... thats the excuse ill use for not reading your post properly. 😫 I thought you already had it. My bad. Sorry. Yes the Russian manufacturer sure looks after his clients. Not sure if the "other" manufacturer would make coils by request. Concerning the other manufacturer, i heard the other day that the 12" winding's are in a 13" coil. Cant be right surely.
  7. Geez Simon, how come you are getting all these new coils first. Im starting to think that it must be a marketing ploy by Mr Rusky. I mean after all you do promote them well. (saying that in a good way 🙂) Anyway ill just have to be patient and keep swinging my mammoth, oversized, hard to get into places 10" coil. The coil looks good also, so it balanced out the ferrite ok?
  8. Best stand i ever saw was on my previous trip away when i met a couple of guys with sdc's. One had made a fold out leg that attached to the sdc. When folded out the sdc stood upright. He said it helped him not have to bend down to pick up the machine all the time off the ground (bad back or knee). From memory he would stand the sdc upright then use his pick to scrape the ground. Only when he had the target located would he bend down to the ground to retrieve it
  9. My efforts from last week with the 10” x-coil. Originally I was using sensitivity @20 which I normally do on reasonably quiet ground and was pulling lots of small shot at depth. Tried mucking around for 3 days with different settings and found one piece of gold (which I lost). I’d raked one spot (small area) which in both normal and then difficult I found 4 bits of deep lead. In the back of my head I always think about JP’s comments of not over doing the sensitivity. So I put on the gpz14 and lowered the sensitivity to 5. Bugger me, a soft signal stood out. So after going over the
  10. Sorry guys, have changed the topic title to read WM12 instead of Prosonic. Just trying to get some feedback if bypassing the WM12 wireless system and plugging a booster and headphones into the Zed directly gives a better or clearer target response.
  11. Sorry, having a clueless moment...again. Yes i meant the wm12 that comes with the Zed.
  12. Plug in a booster/headphones into the WM12 (Gpz7000) or plug it directly into the 7000?? Obviously, wire-free would be more convenient but would the signal be clearer/stronger going hardwired? (I'm not concerned about the minute bit of lag when using a wireless system) Thought i would ask before testing this on my next trip.
  13. As mentioned in the thread post, the coil is a from NuggetFinder. By the pictures it looks to be 12”. Wouldn’t know what other sizes they plan on doing
  14. I asked a Minelab dealer whether the new coil will have a patch lead or not. His reply was the chip will be built into the lead and not requiring a patch lead. Good news for those that are paranoid about chopping the chip off a standard coil and making a patch lead. Coil is due out (in Australia) at the end of June.
