  1. Hello All, Still a lot of debate on which is doing better overall between the two detectors. Many are claiming they are going back to the GPX 5000 with a new (similar or larger sized) flat winding coil (NF Evolution or Coiltek Elite) and getting better results over the Flagship Minelab GPZ 7000. I have noticed the GPZ 7000 sales slowing down a bit, but haven't seen a huge jump in GPX 5000 sales. The new coils are selling well overall, but there thousands of users that have Minelab SD, GP or GPX's that can use the new coils. Curious if anyone has done any side by side comparison on various targets with both units? I guess the "million dollar" question is can a user now save $3000-4000 and invest in new GPX 5000 with a 15 or 17-inch new technology searchoil and get near or better results for a huge savings ..... New GPX 5000 for $4000 and new EVO or Coiltek coil for $500. Total invested - $4500.00 New GPX 4500 for $2699.00 and new EVO or Coiltek coils for $500. Total invested - $3200.00 New GPZ 7000 for $8000.00. Is it still the superior detector with just the 14x13 coil right now. My personal experiences last year with the GPZ 7000 was great. I loved the unit, found a lot of gold I missed with the GPX 5000 and the 14x9 Blitz coil (my favorite prospecting coil and used 99% of the time). Makes we wonder, do I crack out another GPZ or give the GPX 5000 (which I still own) a good run with a 15 to 17-inch coil? Humm ...
  2. Make me an offer or call me, I haven't heard anything. I'm willing to work with you 623.362.1459
  3. Hey Guys, Thanks for the Birthday wishes. It just seems like another day anymore. I remember as a kid I would look forward to the Birthday parties, cake, ice cream and friends. I hit the big 44 and I'm starting to feel it.
  4. Hi Rob,

    Thank you for the offer but 250 is a bit to steep for me. I am looking at paying max 150.00 for a used battery if I can find one. Bought one from Steve  H. about 2 years ago for a 100 bucks...been using since than but the charge is not holding and its going down very fast...3 hours max. If I can't find one in a week or so....I will give you a call if its still available. I do appreciate your offer...still a good deal at 250.00.

    Fred

    I am saving up to get the 12" Evo from you....that I will buy for sure!  

  5. Hey Jen, One hell of a find for sure. I could only imagine if you could strip all those Mother Lode creeks and benches down to bedrock, there are many more to be found (bigger and smaller). California would of been a blast with a modern day Minelab around 1840
  6. Hey Tortuga, That is "Metal Detectorist" paradise mine. Would love to own something like that were you had a lot of nuggets along with all the material to process.
  7. Hello, I have a used GPX 5000 battery that I had listed on the forums, with the wall charger for $250. Give me a call if you're interested 623.362.1459. New they are $441 + the charger. We can work something out!
  8. Hello All, Another forum member shared this on another forum and thought you all would enjoy. Pretty interesting to watch, about 35 minutes worth.
  9. Hello All, Jen, you will really like the EVO coils. The Advantage series are great, but you get more performance from the new EVO's. Unfortunately, I don't take coil trade ins as they get so much wear and tear and they are hard to re-sell. Fell free to use the classified section to move the used coil if you wish. When you're ready for a EVO, just give me a call and we can work something out! Thanks for the comments on the forums, some new stuff coming soon (hopefully good). My1spooky - Ya, figured it might get some excitement back up for the guys like myself that haven't done much over the Summer season. I have some great leads from a retired Geologist along with a ton of data that I never seen anywhere (most of it private from Mining companies). A bit excited to check them out this season, but it's remote.
  10. Hey Whitebutler, Congrats on the success. Many are using the B&Z on the GPZ 7000. I haven't personally tried it yet, but heard it's a real sleeper!
  11. Hello All, Jen - Yep, this was awhile back and it was found with my GPX 5000 and the NF 14-inch Advantage solid coil. I now have a 14x9 EVO on my GPX 5000, but haven't used it as of yet. The EVO seems a bit lighter and I know is more powerful then the prior NF coil. Andy - You are correct, but I have been working around the clock. I'm trying to get my mind back to the old days where I spent a lot of time exploring and opening up new country that isn't much known for gold nuggets.
  12. Congrats on the nuggets from Lynx!

  15. Hey Guys, Thanks for the comments. Not sure about making it look easy, hundreds of hours searching with a few here and there to show for. Not too many times have I made a good hit like this in a day or so, but they are out there. As for location, I believe I can still see the tip of Rich Hill from here on a clear day!
