  4. Yeah thanks Steve. I should have made that a bit clearer *Update* Went back as I was curious all night thinking about that hole and ran the 7000 over the same spot pulling out another 5 bits. So absolutely trounced my old record of 2 in the same hole a while back.. I'll take 9 nuggets in one hole anytime Half an ounce so far this trip ( not all from the above ) what will tomorrow bring >grin< Also great to catch up with a couple of good friends. I gave my GPZ 7000 to them for the better part of the day while I went out Roo shooting. Think they had a great time. I know I did smile th
  5. You Can 'Discriminate' With a 7000? The best discriminator I have found with any machine are my ears being a Beachie. On saying thatI cant prove this but I have a gut feeling the GPZ mark 11 might just have a few surprises leaning that way. ad...
  6. Been working some old Chinese mullock heaps. A first for me yesterday was four small nuggets in the same hole along with 3 tiny bits of wire . My first target was a 0.8 gram nugget which I was fairly happy about except it had the craziest signal. On rechecking the hole I at first thought my GPZ 7000 was playing up cant even describe what I was hearing. So after a restart I quickly realized there was a lot more going on down in that hole. Picture below shows the .8 sorry don't recall which the other 3 where. Also happy to report the Coilcover patch up worked a treat.( picture taken before
  7. If your not wearing out a coil cover once a month your doing something Wrong. So Yes I'm a scraper detectorist that rarely lifts the coil. Well true to form. Not more than a month of owning my GPZ 7000 the Coil cover ( skid plate ) Was in need of urgent repair with heaps of holes worn towards the front edge.I can not buy a replacement for love or $$$$ down here in Australia so I did what I always do and used a two part secret mix we use in my business http://www.suresealshowers.com.au/ to patch it while a replacement is on order. however long that takes who knows. Below is what I have done (

  9. Mate every single word you say I completely agree with. I have been a beachie for 15 odd years and night hunt alone which enables me to really get my head into the Zone if you know what I mean. Being new to Gold ( since September 2014 ) and wanting to learn as much as possible I had to team up with several AU guys. To learn the ropes and jeez is there a steep learning curve. Out of a hand full that I teamed up with everyone seemed to get Gold fever or kind of weird about my luck on picking up Gold detecting and doing well so quick. So I know exactly what you mean about (* people with a go
  10. . >grin< That's us mate unfortunately. We are on the whole good folks there's just that small element that quite a few of us aussie's ( detectorists ) don't tolerate.We do like a good fight though especially the country boys Here's a quote that maybe say's it better. *NEVER AGRGUE WITH A FOOL! HE WILL DRAG YOU DOWN TO HIS LEVEL AND BEAT YOU WITH EXPERIANCE* aussie
  11. Been copping too much flak on our Australian forums so I'd rather if Steve does not mind just post on this forum from now on. *************************************************************************************************************************************************** I've now owned my GPZ 7000 30 days with 50 odd grams in the hand. Works out at 1.6666667 grams per day. A week of that I was just a tad sick ( really sick that is ) with the flu and laryngitis working flogged areas that are not renowned for large nugs.Trying to learn this beast. I'll take that anytime while I'm still very
