  3. Hey Guys/Gals, I agree, great video and to sum it up, both detectors are great. I'm one of guys that has originally owned the GPZ 7000 since it was released here in the US and same with the GPX 6000. I don't need both, but its super hard to put the old GPZ 7000 down, as she has been more than good to me over the years. The small NF Z Searchcoil, 12" round has allowed me to find much smaller gold, down to just a grain in size on the GPZ 7000. However, it was a $1100 investment to go from finding 3-5 grainers with no problem on the 14x13 DD, but the lighter coil did make some justification in my purchase. I really like the GPX 6000, superlight, easy to use, but I hate the fact the shafts like to twist and turn no matter how tight you get them. I'm always concerned I'm going to tighten them too much and snap something. Wishing you all sweet signals under your searchcoils! Rob
  4. Hey Guys, I had a feeling these were coming soon, will be great to see some new sizes for the Minelab GPX 6000 metal detector. Feel free to contact me to get on the pre-order list for these coils, sizes will be mentioned soon enough. 602-909-9008 text or cell 623-362-1459 Office Line email - rob@robsdetectors.com
  5. Great Story and Yes, "Welcome to the Mineralized Bradshaw Mountains!"
  6. I Brake for Bedrock, I guess it would be better than "I lost you at Hello."
  7. You're very welcome. Huge demand for the these skidplates, glad you got yours when you did
  8. Hey Guys, I'm not here to get into a battle about the authenticity of the nugget, it's a real deal. The finder has been a long time customer/friend and the nugget was found in a historical goldfield here in Arizona noted for large gold. This is just one of many that have been found there since the discovery of this location. I personally have other pictures of this same nugget. As much as everyone want to have proof, I'm sure if the owner dropped it in your very hand, someone would walk away and say "it was bought, he never found it," "it wasn't really found here in AZ," and so forth .... I have found some really beautiful gold and I still have people doubting my own finds and they were no where close to 30-40 ounces or better. There are just too many doubter. The person never had to share the find and wasn't going to until he thought maybe he could at least win something from Minelab by sharing it. You would think a nugget find like that would at least deserve a small prize as it was found deep and with a Minelab GPZ 7000 metal detector. Heck, I sold them the GPZ 7000, I should have gotten at least a hat out of the deal .... LOL To my point, why not take it as a great find, encouragement that pieces like that are still possible to find. P.S. You know it's possible to find a massive vein, it's possible to find a trophy nugget, anything can be possible if you believe in yourself and really try hard. The ones that will never find something are the "armchair" quarterbacks. Just my thoughts, the next swing of the coil might be yours. Rob
  9. Hello All, I have been using the Heavy Duty NF Skidplates on my GPZ 14x13 in coil for some time along with the NF Z Search 12" coil. They are awesome, last double the wear time and are not that much more expensive than the standard Minelab skidplates. Here is a whole list the new Heavy Duty (Black) Nugget Finder Skidplates I have available - NF 12" Round for Z Search (GPZ 7000) - $33.00 NF 14x13" GPZ Searchcoil (GPZ 7000) - $40.00 NF 11" Round for GPX 6000 (GPX 6000) - $33.00 NF 14" Round for GPX 6000 (GPX 6000) - $40.00 NF 17" Elliptical for GPX 6000 (GPX 6000) - 40.00 NF 11" Round for Equinox 600/800 (EQX series) - $28.00 Shipping is not included in the price. We have all of them in stock, but they are going super quickly due to the quality and the fact they last much longer. Some of the new stock skidplates seems like they are almost paper thin. Contact us via phone or text to order, as not all of them are listed online as of yet. Thanks!

  11. Hey Guys, The nugget shown in this post is a "genuine Arizona Gold Nugget." The owner/finder is a close and personal friend and long time Minelab customer. The nugget was found with the Minelab GPZ 7000. He submitted the gold nugget in one of Minelab Find of the Month deal and from what he said he didn't win anything .... Big gold nuggets are still being found like this (although very rare) , but many don't get reported due to the rarity and high collector value. Hope this helps clarify the "unknown" about this piece. Rob
  12. Hey JP, Ok, can you email me your contact info as I can't find anyone here in the US that is Distributing them or making. I had a bunch, just went through the last of them prior to the Holidays. Rob
  13. Hey Guys, Since the Hipstick was created I have been selling them. However, the last time I talked with Chris Porter, I thought he mentioned he was not making nor selling them. Does anyone know where some of my customers can get the newer Hipstick 2.0, I'm completely out and struggling to get a hold of anyone that is making or carrying them now. Any help would be appreciated - rob@robsdetectors.com Hope you all had a Happy New Year. Rob
  14. Hey Guys, The new 17" is super popular and in high demand here in the US. I just got another batch of them in, so if anyone is still wanting to get one before Christmas, contact me ASAP. These will not last more than about a week or so and the batch will be gone. https://www.robsdetectors.com/minelab-gpx-6000-17-searchcoil/ Thanks for all the comments of guys/gals using them. ROb
  15. Thanks guys for the comment. Hope all your belly's are full from all the Turkey! 🙂
  16. Hey Guys, I believe this is one of my customers, really the only Minelab GPX 6000 that has been faulty that I have sold (knock on wood). Myself, Deb, Keith and Detector Center have been working to get him a 3rd unit ASAP. I could only imagine the frustration, but I have to give it to Deb at Minelab & Keith at Detector Center that they have done their absolute best to get this resolved. As frustrating has this can be, there is now a procedure that has to be followed when something is under warranty. Many years back, us as Minelab Dealers could just ship a unit from our own inventory to replace the detector and then deal with getting the faulty one replaced. Due to paperwork, warranty and such, this is no longer something that can be done. All detector must go back to Detector Center in PA for a replacement. Detector Center will not ship another unit out until the warranty/faulty unit is returned with all accessories/coils. It's my understanding they have been burned and never had units arrive back, but new replacements shipped out, so the the company is out 2 brand new units. This is about my kind of luck, so I understand the frustration of purchasing a detector that is $6000 and realize you got a bad one, let alone a second unit that was also bad. It's my understanding per the customer that the issue was not EMI, bad searchcoil, loose connections, improper use and such, but more so something potentially internally. I was never able to troubleshoot or physically see the unit in action, just a handful of short videos where the unit wasn't working properly. That all being said, hopefully the customer will see another Minelab GPX 6000 in his hands before the end of this week, or early next week at the latest due to the Holiday. I think most would agree, the Minelab brand is one of the best in the World, so I know there Quality control is good, so I can't comment on what might have happened. Rob
  17. Hey Lunk, You're story traveled all the way to Arizona several weeks ago. I heard from several customers of your recent success and that you had over 100 gold nuggets from the Minelab GPX 6000 at that time. Congrats on an amazing haul of gold nuggets from Rye Patch. Just makes you wonder how many "tens of thousands" of nuggets that place has given up over the years. Kind of reminds me of our hunt out here in Arizona when the SDC 2300's first came out. I think we both had 20-25 nuggets each in just a few short days. Have you considered going back to that place? I'm not sure how many hours or days it took you as I know you spent a lot of time training, but 3/4's of an ounce is a nice run at Rye Patch for sure. Maybe we can schedule a hunt this season or early next year before you head out of AZ. Rob
  18. Hey Steve, Well said. Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I will leave you with one of my favorite bible verses -
  19. Hello All, I have a lot of video footage and pictures from earlier this season, mostly around the Summer time. I'm just getting some free time to get some of the stuff uploaded and posted. I figured this would be a nice nugget to post and see right before the Thanksgiving weekend. This piece was found under about a foot of hardpack, caliche gravels. This particular gold nuggets, as seen in the video was wedged in a bedrock crack/crevice. Just makes you think how many years (hundreds, thousands?) this piece has been hiding there. The nugget was difficult to remove from hand tools as we didn't want to damage the piece not knowing the actual size or shape. We ended up using a Hammer Drill with a chisel bit to extract the gold nugget. The nugget ended up weighing right at 1/4 ounce solid. We also found another smaller one, about 1/2 Gram in the same crack prior to this piece. I dug the first smaller one out, but knew it was way too loud of a signal on the GPZ 7000 for it to be that small nugget. Low and behold, we scanned over the spot again and the signal was pretty much just as load as originally. Tool used were the Minelab GPZ 7000, Minelab GPX 6000, Garrett AT Pinpointer, hand tools, picks and the Hammer Drill. Here is a short video below of the gold nugget find and extraction. Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks God we are able to enjoy such a wonderful hobby searching for gold. P.S. If you enjoy these video, Subscribe to our Nuggethunting channel to follow us. Thanks for watching. Any comments are appreciated.
  20. Hey Bud, Always great watching you and Gary dig gold and nuggets. The Yuba is a awesome area and loaded with gold. I have a friend, which I believe still has the claims on the Yuba and used to dredge some good sized nuggets, but at depths of 15-20 foot down and car sized boulders they had to move. I think now they are diving and sniping with the Minelab SDC 2300's due to the dredging regulations now. Rob
  21. Hey Smithsgold, Thanks, that video was from earlier this year during the Summer season. That being said, I have about 2-3 hours of footage from that time until more recent that I need to get uploaded. Hopefully everyone enjoys seeing a few nuggets dug out of the ground. I just watched the new video you uploaded, always great videos. Rob
  22. Hey Guys, Good information Chris, as many customers don't even know there is a new Fisher Gold Bug2 that has a screen on it. I have a lot of hours on the Gold Bug2 and about half that much on the Gold Monster 1000. I'm normally 95% of the time running a PI or better, but have found hundreds, probably thousands of dinks with the VLF's. I prefer Manual Balance over Auto with a VLF, just my thoughts. The Auto makes it super easy to use for a new guy and you don't have to fiddle with the Ground balance knobs, coarse/fine. I think the Gold Bug2 like another forum member mentioned, hits harder on specimens with small amounts of gold vs. the Gold Monster 1000. They are both great detectors, one just requires a bit more control management vs. the other. Rob
  23. Hey Guys, Thanks for the comments. I Brake for Bedrock - Na, just hit a nice little pocket earlier this year. They are always nice to find, but not super common. I have a bunch of video footage I still haven't uploaded from earlier this season. Rob
