  1. What a great video Gerry, lots of useful information, thanks for taking the time to create and share. Makes me wanna get out and find some gold. Brian.
  2. I initially thought Minelab would be introducing a new detector; however, based on the article it doesn't appear to be, as of now. Thanks for sharing. Brian.
  3. Selling my Makro Racer 2, as I have several detectors that I can’t swing all at once and it would be a shame for this machine to sit in a closet. As the original owner I can testify this machine has been well cared for and never used in or around water, although it can and apparently does quite well in wet sand. Some of the features and benefits of this detector are, Notch Filter, Iron Audio, Tone Break, iSAT, advanced discrimination ability and Deep mode. There are minor scratches/scuffing on the shaft, coil and housing, but the detector works just as good as if it were brand new. The screen has absolutely no visible scratches and is easy to see in any light. I’m asking $400.00 which includes the 5” DD coil and USPS shipping to the lower 48, USA only or a local pickup. Please pm me if you’re interested or would like to make an offer. I will ship after payment has been received (cash) or cleared (check). Thank you, Brian.
  4. Selling my Whites GMT “Goldmaster”, as I have several detectors that I can’t swing all at once and it would be a shame for this machine to sit in a closet. As the original owner I can testify this machine has been well cared for and never used in or around water, although it does have a waterproof search coil. The operating frequency is 48 KHz, which is ideal for finding gold in harsh ground. There are minor scratches/scuffing on the control box stickers, shaft and coil, but the detector and coil work just as good as if it were brand new. I’m asking $450.00 which includes the careful packing and USPS shipping to the lower 48, USA only, or a local pickup. Please pm me if you’re interested or would like to make an offer. I will ship after payment has been received(cash) or cleared (check). Thank you, Brian.
  5. Magnets probably cost more than the digging tool :) Brian.
  6. Phrunt, is shipping not an option to your neck of the woods? I have seen some vendors advertise free shipping, but that may only be to the lower 48. Brian.
  7. The question is how much are you willing to spend for this new dectector and how long are you willing to wait? The GPZ 7000, when it first became available topped the scales at $10,000. When and if this newer machine comes out, it will no doubt cost more! Also, are you willing to possible wait years for this new technology and leave gold in the ground for someone else to find? I suggest spending as little money as possible, go with a vlf, cause if the oldtimers were there, i have no doubt there will be metal trash everywhere and it will drive you crazy being a newbie. Its always best to find gold first on this exclusive land and then match the detector to the environment. Good Luck, Brian.
  8. Incredible, nice going Lunk and way to stay disciplined! Brian.
  9. Peg and her blue pants :) Congratulations on finding a goodly amount of gold. Until the next trip. Brian.
  10. Oneguy, there are so many variables; however, I have the 18" Apex Badger which I use with my GMT and a 28" Rogue pick that i cut down to size for my GPZ. I prefer the 28" length as I don't have to bend over as far and it has a large hoe for those GPZ holes, 24" was just too short for me, Im 6 feet tall. A short handled pick is great for hands/knees detecting and of course less weight. Because I don't need a heavy duty pick with my GMT, the 18" Apex Badger is ideal, and the 24" would be overkill, IMO. Since you have the GM 1000 listed as your detector, i would suggest the 18", Hope this helps. Brian.
  11. Congratulations Simon, looks like Minelab hit a home run with this machine. Brian.
  12. JW, you live in a beautiful place, incredible! The tiny gold the Equinox detects, is almost as impressive as the landscape, almost! Thanks for bringing us along on your adventures. Brian.
  13. Nice going Stephen, great looking gold. Sounds like there wont be much training going on, just finding nuggets :) Brian.
  14. Great stories Condor, I really enjoyed reading them. The N. Fork canyon sure is remote but a pretty area. A few years back, i hiked the Green Valley Trail down to the N. Fork, tough hike but would be easy on your Rokon. I saw dirt bike tracks on the trail, not sure if its allowed, but worth a shot. Im guessing you don't get bothered by poison oak but maybe your gf does. Any snakes? I look forward to your next adventure, Brian.
  15. Hi Peg, i bet there is more gold under those rock piles :)
  16. First gold of 2018, total weight is only .5 dwt. Found with the GPZ in HY/Difficult. Brian.
  17. Beautiful piece Steve! My last trip of 2017 ended in a skunk, but i still enjoyed every minute of it.
  18. July 2017, is the latest update for the GPZ. However, this update made the Xchange 2 software program no longer compatible with the 7000. I find this to be very frustrating as I can no longer save my find or way points, as my detector’s GPS memory is full, nor do I have a way of downloading this data. At this point, the only solution I know of is to delete, which is counter productive to having an on board data log. According to Minelab https://www.minelab.com/usa/customer-care/product-notices?article=313853 the new compatible version of Xchange 2 is supposed to be available within the next few months. This statement is from July 2017, I believe its been more than a few months. Minelab, the innovative company they are, should of have had this compatible before the release in July. Please get this fixed Minelab! Has anyone heard of when it will be compatible or know of a work around? From the Minelab link above: Important Notes: 1) … 2) This update is currently NOT COMPATIBLE with XChange 2 and therefore will make XChange 2 inoperable with the GPZ 7000 detector. A new compatible version of XChange 2 will be available within the next few months, at which time full compatibility will be restored. Any data you have stored on XChange 2 will not be lost when you carry out the GPZ update and when this new version of XChange 2 becomes available. 3) … Brian
  19. Did you make it out last weekend? Curious to hear about your findings Scott. Brian.
  20. I saw on Facebook that he is also selling a cover/case for it.
  21. Wes, I strongly agree that a smaller coil would be very useful for creek hunting, brushy, and rocky areas, but will i pay upwards of what could be a $1,000.00 coil, probably not. In these environments, for me, i will dust off the 5000 and use my $240.00 Nugget Finder Sadie coil. Brian.
