  1. Well the line ups of unhappy 6k owners are growing and waiting for when that day comes. Mine's paid for and whenever it gets here, it gets here.. the gold's been there millions of years, it's not going anywhere. https://www.prospectingaustralia.com/threads/new-pi-from-garrett-axiom.39863/page-5#post-653859
  2. Kind of hard to find nuggets with a vaporware/ imaginary detector.
  3. Changing a battery type or even adding the knuckle protector and cuff cover in no way compares to failures we’ve seen with the 6. We’ve experienced actual problems making the unit unusable to many, the items you mentioned are nice to have upgrades they can mail you to install, Minelab can’t mail you an EMI fix for the 6k.
  4. So to follow your logic you’re saying previous detector problems were resolved with the release of the GPX-4600, GPX-5100, SDC-2400, and a GPZ 7100? I don’t recall them being released….. mainly because back then Minelab produced and released fully tested detectors that didn’t need to be essentially rebuilt to fix multiple flaws like we’re seeing now. At this point with the 6, if they made cars you’d be better off jacking up the ignition key and putting a new car under it if you started having problems…. That’s what I did, got my warranty replacement and once I tested it and determined it was working properly flogged it off before it changed it’s mind.
  5. You wrote exactly what I was thinking, bloody ridiculous.
  6. See what happens Garrett when we have to wait for a new detector we know is about to be birthed, we lose our minds and start watching trash videos like that out of frustration. 🤣
  7. Yea that’s exactly what it was, just was a good laugh to see suck a cluster f of a video… lol
  8. Kind of a convoluted bi-polar, disorganized, cluster-f, difficult to watch, mess of a video but has “some” pretty pictures.
  9. No not at all, they all have a place in the tickle trunk. The happy face is for the no EMI and other problems my 6 had, and the lightness no harness etc factor over the 7.
  10. 65 acres of caliche acting as a false bedrock covered by deep red mineralized pay with various areas on the property showing more rich than others (and some areas of waste showing a strong grey tone as opposed to red) as visible from Google Earth and evidenced by sampling and nugget recovery.
  11. Yup it’s common sense to most of us experienced folks but always a good trick to point out to the newbies, everyone training should teach this, glad you do. 😉
  12. OMG!!!!!!! Is this Tom, the GMS I use to chat with on GPEX (Larry’s forum) in BC? I still have a copy of your book kicking around, great book, where have you been? Jen https://www.amazon.com/Modern-Goldseekers-Manual-Tom-Bryant/dp/0969391218
  13. The thing that did my head in the most over the years learning to detector prospect was learning what ground noise sounds like and more importantly, the confidence to trust your machine enough to walk away….. (trying to not remember some of those 1 meter down 33oz nuggets that @Jonathan Porter use to show in his videos that seemed to sound like this despite going deeper than a quick game of rock soccer eliminated or brightened). Videos like this help as well… a good refresher or tip for the newbie….
  14. A friend of mine and I did various tests with multiples SDC’s on various size gold also comparing to an 8” coil on a 5000. The most depth we got on either SDC regardless of nugget size was around 8” which matched the coil size.
  15. But we agreed I was burying you on my land in Gold Basin so you could be closer to those trumpet plants you love so much?
