  1. Highly recommended Rob, I have one, it's a must have, order one!! Jen
  2. Hi Rob, sadly I have to agree with you on the Bates, mine lasted exactly 2 days in Gold Basin before the sides blew out on them, fortunately I was still in Vegas at the time and Doc just gave me a replacement set right away (which are in the box and have not been tried so not sure if they'd last any longer). That being said, those two days did score me several hundred $ in AU so the cost benefit analysis clearly showed a win in my favor so I won't complain. Jen
  3. Well it's Summer again and time to work my claims up in British Columbia. Before I head up I'd like to pick up a Proline HP500 pump with motor if anyone has one for sale. Let me know... Thanks Jennifer
  4. Price lowered, $200.00 shipped... collecting dust. Will also consider partial trade to nice big round Nugget Finder Evo coil =+)
  5. Hi all.... when I purchased my GPZ 7000 I figured that the GPZ 19 coil was going to weigh a lot more than it does so I ordered a fancy wiz bang over the shoulder boulder holder weight distribution harness for it. After using the GPZ 19 coil for a while and then adding a Hip Stick to my system, I find that this item is excessive to my needs to I might as well sell it instead of having it collect dust. It works great and I didn't notice any interference with the coil in normal swinging. A perfect gift for the wife, works on a GPX5000 as well, lots of pics and video on their web site and Facebook page. Below is the price break down in Australian dollars and then converted to US funds... I'll sell it all, used only once, brand new condition, for $250.00 shipping included. Harness: $365.00 Shipping to USA: $80.00 --------- Total in Aus$: $445.00 Total in American$: $332.62 Selling for $250.00 shipped or can be picked up in Las Vegas or Gold Basin (I'm there every weekend).

  6. Thanks all...
  7. Say WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUTTTT???? 4???? 5???? Well that may be part of my problem... You know, the first thing I noticed on the Z was the lack of the little FP icons for factory preset and I assumed that when Minelab set that the factory preset was a good starting point in their videos, they also meant the gain.. I'm pretty sure after the intial settings resets I've done, I've left the gain at what it reset to and that's been about 9 or 10... I've NEVER had it below 8..... back to Gold Basin tomorrow I reckon.. good thing I live so close... and to think, I just resigned from my company and was planning on moving to Phoenix... hmmmm having GP so close is kinda handy after all... 4 or 5 eh? wow.. I wonder why the factory preset is so damn high... Thanks for the heads up Mike, I never would have thought to crank it down that low. I usually run the 5000 around 8 or 9 with the big Evo, I find I can turn it down a bit and that helps on the EMI. I'll try it out tomorrow. Jen
  8. Oh sure!!!! Now that I've sold my Pro-Sonic system I'll probably still get one.... Been waiting for them to get here... PS: Rob, thanks again for the hipstick, I should have bought one years ago. Jen
  9. Hi Wanderer..... every time I go to Gold Basin, I drag both the 5000 and the GPZ with me, the 5000 with the Evo above.... every time the Zed gets tossed back into the truck due to inability to get a smooth threshold (not a ground balance issue) just non stop EMI sound, despite countless auto and manual tune settings.... I've dug more "oh my gawd that's a nugget" loud as, signals with that Zed at huge depth and physical exhaustion only to have the signal disappear, what sounds like normal ground noise and is easy to know not to dig too deep for on the 5000 sounds like a target, bright till you hear a foot or so down then dissaoears. The thing makes the slightest bit of ground noise sound like a target... the EMI may be the non stop RF noise from the countless Grand Canyon tour helicopters that fly overhead but my 5000 can at least be tuned out in timings to eliminate that, with the VERY limited options on the Zed for timings, it goes back in the truck every time, unusable. To be fair to it, I may give it another go in Johnnie district or someplace with less air traffic..... but if it's suppose to be noisier cus it's more sensitive, I can't get past the feeling I'm missing targets so maybe it's psychological. It took me a while to be able to have trust/faith in my 5000 and when I did, it was a great day, gold started jumping out of the ground it seemed, do I trust the Zed, no way..... It finds gold, I've found some with it, I've also found 1cm long staples at ridiculous depth.... At this point, the Zed is in the closet where it will stay.... I hated the Zed when I used it a few times in Australia, I wasn't impressed when I saw Doc use his and my feelings haven't changed. My 5000 with Evo is my true love and I don't see that changing any time soon... Jen
  10. Doc's Gold Screamer system.... NEW... picked it up to use with my GPX-5000 but never used it as I picked up a Pro-Sonic system for it and then purchased a GPZ 7000 so it's new in the bag, collecting dust so time to sell it. NOTE: The control box cover has been used for less than 8 hours as I liked the little pocket the amp normally sits in and used it for my car keys. The batteries have been charged and it includes everything you normally pay $469.00 for. $325.00 including shipping.
  11. The only reason I have golden hair is because I bleach it, be glad you don't, its expensive looking this cheap. Jen
