  1. Totally agree with you there, Steve, and I understand where you’re coming from; I’m sure some may think I'm just trying to hype new detectors to help Gerry's sales, but in reality I really enjoy taking a new machine to its limits to see what it's capable of, especially so in this instance where it is expected to be a serious contender to the top-dog PI manufacturer, MInelab. The more quality and performance centered competition there is, the more it helps bring prices down, as well as advancing detector innovation.
  2. I'm currently doing comparison testing between the production model Axiom and the GPX 6000; it's not scientific by any means, just observations for my own information, but I will report my methods and observations on the Metal Detector Advice and Comparisons forum when I'm finished. And there will be gold pics. 🙂

  4. 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. 🤣
  5. Agreed…way too many Z's in that add…has to be the next gen GPZ.
  6. Yes, that Goldhawk is a brilliant little coil, Anthony. Just PM me here when you want to hook up.
  7. I certainly will, especially in hot rock hell type areas where the GPX 6000 runs into trouble.
  8. Good guess VL, but it's not a concrete outhouse; someone on here should know what it is…🤔
  9. Fun trip with excellent saves and a great detector training class as always, Gerry! Looking forward to the 1 on 1 gold and space rock training down here in the warm and sunny Arizona desert.😎🌵
  10. Two seconds later… Tony, is that ground uniformly hot, or is it variable?
  11. And he even gave it back to its rightful owner (thanks again, amigo); what a swell guy! 🤘
  12. Good on you, GC; just a simple matter of having the right tool for the job. That General/Difficult combo even works great against magnetite hot rocks too.
  13. Steve, I know pictures don’t do justice when it comes to gold, but those look like some really spectacular specimens, WTG! Looking forward to your GPX 6000 journal entry.
  14. Gerry, In my experience of swinging the GPX 6000 since last June, I have to agree that it is the king when it comes to the shear number of nuggets it can find compared to the GPZ 7000. But at the same time, it is also the court jester when it comes to quality; I had to send in 2 of my 3 coils for replacement, which prompted me to buy a spare coil to have on hand when the next failure happens. During the winter desert prospecting season of 2020, it took me nearly 4 months to find 100 Arizona nuggets with the GPZ 7000, as detailed below: This past winter season however, going over the same areas with the GPX 6000 netted the same number of nuggets in only a couple of weeks. And the total take for my first season with the GPX 6k is multiple hundreds of nuggets at a combined weight of 5 ounces, which is an ounce more than found with the GPZ 7k during the previous season on the same patches. The amount of sub-gram bits left behind by the 7000 in some spots was truly mind boggling. Also, there was a noticeable increase in the number of specie bits, porous “popcorn” gold and crystalline pieces. This, in combination with all the reasons Gerry mentioned, certainly makes the GPX 6000 the king in my book. Pictured below is the 5-ounce pile of nuggets recovered during my first season with the 6k:
  15. As evidenced by this thread, the demand for a small DD coil appears to be high; I would certainly purchase one, and I know other operators who would too. So Trevor, hopefully soon you can change your post above to read, “GOLDHAWK DD coils coming soon!”
  16. Couldn’t have said it better, Randy. Congrats on the nuggets and other finds. That’s a beaut of a chondrite, they don’t get more perfect than that.
  17. GC, just wondering if you tried the 6k with the DD coil in that environment? I had great success running the older GPX machines with a DD coil in cancel mode (just like the 6k DD in EMI cancel) in the volcanics of the El Paso Mountains. The conductive ground cancel may work as well.
  18. So we’re expected to pay more for a small 10x5 than a large 17 ellip ??? 😳
  19. Here’s a 3 gram bit basking in the Arizona sun:
  20. Are you listening, Minelab? If anyone can invent said time machine, it's Bruce Candy and ML's R&D! Because of your detector tech innovations, there will be no detectable gold left to find in the future, so the only solution is to detect in the past. Certainly, ML must have at least applied for a patent on a flux capacitor by now…🤔 BTW, great post on Vic's gold history, GJ.
