Hi guys…long time no post.
Getting back on topic of What make & model gold detector do you use?
As of late last year I have been swinging the mighty GPZ 7000. The best gold detector I have owned to date… by far. Could count on one hand the number of days I have come home with out a rattle in my bottle, & I go out detecting a lot.
As of a couple of months ago I was gifted a Gold Monster 1000 from Minelab to trial here in our extreme mild ground conditions. While general hunting for fly spec size gold isn’t my cup of tea the GM 1000 is a very cool piece of kit. At 45 khz it is very close to Whites GMT at 48 khz & the Gold Bug 2 at 71 khz. The GM 1000 comes with two coils. A 10x6 which is just slightly bigger than the GMT’s 10x5 but also comes with a 5" round coil. My Gold Bug 2 has just the little 6x3 sniper coil & I use the GB2 in conjunction with the GPZ 7000. The Zed in its own right is pretty deadly on small gold at good depth where as the GB 2 at 71 khz is super deadly on fly spec size gold that the Zed wont get but it needs to be very close to the GB2’s coil. The number of times I have got a deep target with the Zed & then stuck the GB2 down the hole & pinged quite a bit of tiny gold from down in the hole & also through out the zed’s dig out pile is crazy. The GM 1000 with its little 5" coil is pretty much the same.
