  1. JW if you keep this up you will cause your country to have a gold shortage. I like the title of the thread.
  2. Good luck with the Zed Dig. Post up your first finds.
  3. All the little specks are gone now that JW has a 6 inch coil 😢
  4. When you are blowing bubbles under the water you don't hear the motor so much. But I agree with your direct of thought.
  5. I plan to go out this weekend with maybe Brian. Maybe I can pickup some tips. There was several repeat signals I didn't dig because they didn't sound right. I dug several to find nothing after checking with the Nox. Went down to bedrock. I noticed there is a little more sharp a small size to target sounds. The kind I stopped digging where the broad and more mellow sounds. I am sure there might have been a real target. But I was trying to cover more on the claim picking off the good signals, saving the others for this weekend.
  6. Thanks Steve. I found out that there is codes you can see with the eye. These are not the codes need to verify a unit. The code can only be seen with a lens. Mine is real 😁
  7. Darn it JW, you spoiled the contest your first time out. Fly poop size gold is impossible to beat. Great work proving the Nox is a beast on gold. How you where able to locate that in your scoop is what I want to know lol.
  8. I am very fond of my Makro gold racer and still have it to date. Matter of fact, I carry it with me while using my gpz 7000. It is helping me learn the sounds the gpz 7000 makes on ground and target. The gold kruz is an upgrade of this detector. A true upgrade, slight upgrades but important ones. I think it is a great intro unit for a multitude of grounds. I had the Monster and didn't like it all that much, for my own reasons. That does not mean it is a bad unit. It simple did not fit what I wanted from a detector in that range. Plus Makro has more coil options that might be important to you over time. Each to their own, fits detector selecting to a tee. Good luck.
  9. Thank you Gerry. I hope this weekend will bear more fruit.
  10. Well I got skunked on day two. But so did 2 sdc2300 guys, so don't feel so bad. Good news I won the day on the forum YES.
  11. Thanks for the input guys. I am out for another trip.
  12. I took the GPZ 7000 out for its maiden voyage today. I tried the bottom of the claim where we have not found much. Partly because of deeper float sand and not much luck with nuggets. Only a couple have been found down there, however one of those was a 6 gram. So I went over my gold corner first. This place only has small nuggets .25 gram all the way down to .01 gram. So as the title says I found my first two nuggets. The first one was my biggest of the day and biggest ever at 1.16 gram about the size of a pinto bean. This one was down about 6 inches inside schist bedrock. When I located it I thought it was small, so I grabbed the tweezers. Boy was I happy to see the real size. The other one was .18 gram just a standard flat one. It was odd however in that I got a double sound off it. I think it was because it was standing upright smashed between bedrock fingers, down about 2 inches. I will update with my settings later so I can get input from you guys.
  13. 10 inch coil would be nice. Any chance we get 6 inch or a 9x 4 Sadie style.
  14. You have a new brother in the family. Special thanks to each of you that gave me advise on this decision. Extra call out to Brian for checking the Zed out for me in person. Lot of respect for the tight group we have here. Feel free to drop tips and hints in here or pm. I have read so many threads my eyes are bleeding lol. Come on 1 oz Nug. JW looking forward to nugget find sharing with you. Fred low and slow, Check! Nenad hit me up with more of those tips, so I can pay for this thing lol lol.
  15. No gold in HI. My bet is Steve is off cleaning out a field, maybe with a secret weapon. Steve, leave some for the mortals to find.
  16. I just happened to contact Brian the day he got an extra and no one was on a list. Same way I got the Nox. Member posted a site had one and I jumped on it. That all being said, I have a lethal gold slayer in my hands and Sunday can't come fast enough lol. Phrunt bring your A game and let's have a little nugget shoot out. No letting JW pad the numbers with his 7k lol. Anyone else in for who finds the smallest nugget with a 6 inch Nox coil? Let's run it for two weeks.
  17. Yep I think the 6 inch changes the game. I already though the 11 inch was better than the monster but let us let the finds make the determination.
  18. Perfectly stated post. I got more from this post than I have from most others about settings.
  19. They did to a point. But perhaps it is a new sell tactic. Dealer is a member here.
