  2. NEW package/price. The GPX-4000 comes with an 11" Minelab DD coil, 11" Coil Tek Anti-Interference coil, harness, battery with charger, new Koss UR-30 headphone, and 2 Docs bungee cords. $1100 shipped (USA). I accept PayPal or USPS money order. Call or text Ron. Seven seven five 300-1736.
  3. I found these while going through my detecting stuff. They are brand new and I know they fit the GP Extreme. I'm not sure if they work on earlier model Minelab detectors. I am asking $25 each shipped (con USA). Contact Ron by text or phone at seven seven five 300-1736.
  4. Steve, my GB2 is from 1997. It has a one piece 'S' rod. And my 6" coil is original. It has found a couple thousand little pieces and is my (my wife's) go to detector. I am relegated to my GB Pro. A few years ago while I was in Quartzsite for the winter I sent the GB2 to Fisher for some work. I didn't send the coil and they contacted me and I told them to calibrate it to their 'standard' coil. When I got it back i took it out and found a sub grain piece the first time out. Works for me.
  5. But yet that is what lots of people on the forums are doing by showing the pictures of their finds.
  6. Inside the box they use foil around the inside to shield the electronics. I believe the paper clip slides onto the foil to complete the ground
  7. Speaking of Pot Holes. Has anyone heard anything from Pot Holes Bob? I haven't seen him on any of the forums in a long time.
  8. Trinityau should chime in. I have been with Ray on many occasions when he just walked right through 6' high bushes of poison oak. He never gets it. Needless to say, my wife and I would pick our way around the stuff. Some day it will catch up with him.
  9. The doctor says that if you don't do anything it will go away in 2 weeks. If you get a cortisone shot it will go away in 14 days. Good luck on either choice.
  10. It beats the -15 degrees F that is was at Rye Patch this morning. Why am I still in Fallon after so many winters in Q?
  11. A few years ago my wife was hunting the wash on the west side of Dome Rock. She came upon a hole like that that someone had been drywashing. She was using her GB2. She checked the bottom real good, and then the sides all around. Finally, she checked the edge of the lip and there she found a nice piece of gold. Someone threw the baby out with the bathwater.
  12. Get them from Az Outback. After you wear them for a few hours and get back to your vehicle you will forget you have them on. Oh, they are guarenteed against any North American snake bite.
  13. Given the frequency that detectors operate at, it will have no effect on the sensitivity or depth. That said, how many detectors do you know of that will detect that small a piece? My Goldbug 2 with 6" coil has found many 1/10 grain pieces and I wouldn't be without a coil cover. I showed Chris Gholson a 1/10 grain piece that I found in Quartzsite with a Gold Bug Pro, and it had a cover on the 5" round coil. Use coil covers, don't wear out your coils.
  14. Steve, you should have moved to Fallon. We didn't get one flake of snow. And we are closer to Rye Patch. Goldbug Ron
