I'm being told by a buddy of mine that the gpz doesn't like wet ground. Does anyone have any feedback on whether this is true or not? I've yet to swing my gpz over wet ground. Any pointers would be great!!

Hey Rockpile,

   I personally have not had any issues on wet ground with the GPZ.  Maybe some other could chime in with their experience.

I have not had any issues.  Up in Dewey I detected with the ground frozen, which was miserable.  But the machine hummed.  Ground underneath was muddy.  Which makes it a real pain to separate the gold by the way.  :D

Now the GPX 5000, I *have* had that issue before.  Usually I just switch to a smaller coil size and things get better.

Hey Rockpile,

   Was that after using the Ferrite Ground balancing ring?  Thanks for the order also. 

The Ferrite ring does help for sure, especially in moderate to high mineralization.

Hey Rockpile ... If you bought the detector from Rob brand new check the box your charger came in ... I have heard from a couple people that they found theirs shipped in that box. Looks like a giant over-sized washer about 1.5 inches in diameter x about a 1/4 inch thick, painted yellow just in case you have never seen one.

I’ve had some good luck in wet ground after a rain. I think it’s lucky to hunt when it’s a little wet out. Might help with electrical conductivity in the ground and how our detectors react to metal targets.
