  1. Way 2 Cool, I wasn't directing that comment at you specifically. I meant in general you can not compare these two machines. It's akin to comparing a VLF to a Pulse Induction. I mean you can compare them, but they are different technologies. Doc
  2. The 5000 is already priced extremely low, and the 7000 is in a different class, you will not see a price drop there. Minelab have given the consumer 3 Pulse Induction machines now, the SDC2300 at $3299, the GPX5000 at $3,999, and the GPX6000 at $6000. So hopefully someone wanting a Pulse Induction Minelab can find a price point they are happy with. The GPZ is not a Pulse Induction machine. (I'll call it a Magnetic Field Shift Induction machine) To think the GPX6000 is in anyway connected to the 7000 is a huge mistake and misunderstanding of where the GPX6000 falls in terms of capabil
  3. So let me add something I wrote a couple of days ago addressing this same issue. I think a lot of people, still do not understand the technology of the GPZ7000 vs. Pulse Induction. I'm sure newcomers don't and probably a lot of the old-timers don't because they have not had to go through the training we dealers who are Minelab Certified Gold Machine trainers have. GPZ7000 or GPX6000? By Doc of Doc’s Detecting © 2021 G.M. “Doc” Lousignont, Ph.D. I have used both the GPZ7000 and the GPX6000. I have been a Minelab dealer in the U.S. for 29 years. I will try to help you make an inform
  4. So you are waiting patiently for your new GPX6000 machine to be released into your sweaty little hands. $6000 for this amazing little piece of technology and you're just going to let it lay around in the dirt? No! Of course not! You're going to pre-order one of Doc's Nugget Stalker® Brand covers. $129.95. 4 pieces counting the removable shade cover. The entire cover package only weighs 8.5 ounces. Just like the GPX6000 these covers will be in short supply initially, so don't delay, be the first to get in line. (I will probably bring in 200 by air to get the ball rolling but the bulk
  5. You know another name for Nugget Hunter? I mean besides Rob Allison. I mean what do you call guys and gals that like to spend all their time investigating those darn elusive nuggets and trying to sneak up on them? Dem dere people be called "Nugget Stalkers®" So for that Nugget Stalker in your life here's a perfect Christmas present. The Nugget Stalker® Hat. Now when someone comes up to you and asks "Wat ya'll doing with that swingy stick son?" You can just point at your hat. Nugget Stalker® and the little stick figure of the Detecting Man are Federally Registered Trademarks
  6. It's a made up name which is a mash up of the words Quick, Bungee and Double (double adjustment point). It describes another innovative product from Doc that makes detecting more enjoyable and helps save your arm, shoulder neck and back from undue stress. Just add your own backpack or Hydration pack. This amazing Bungee Support System provides absolutely instantaneous adjustment so your detector is always at the proper height off the ground, even when you are in mid-swing. We use super strong Marine Grade bungee that is stronger than 3/8ths inch bungee that is commonly used for tie-dow
  7. Me! I'm the automated assembly line. Only 1700 more to assemble. I can't keep up with orders. Your dealers should have more this week if you have been waiting. I have not seen any field reports from people who have purchased the Swing Assist Guide Arm. I would love to hear some news. Thanks gang! Doc
  8. I did a little experiment to see how effective the Gold SPOT™ Treasure Scoop Portable Gold Pan is for dry panning. This scoop was developed not only to be a more effective nugget recovery tool when using your metal detector but also as an effective tool when crevassing and sampling. This is useful when you are looking for deposits of small nuggets and flakes of gold in cracks in bedrock. So for this experiment, I mixed 1 gram of 14 mesh gold, that would be about 30 or so tiny nuggets and a half of a gram of 18 mesh gold which would be around 40- 45 little flakes total 1.5 grams with dirt and b
  9. Well tell the CDC that KN95 and N95 masks are bullshit. KN95 are N95 are recommended by the CDC, and they even say you can use them for extended use as long as they are usable and you have not soiled the outside with blood or sputum. The key is not to touch the outside of the mask and transfer cooties to the inside. These masks meet FDA specs. Cloth masks do not. These masks are approved for medical use. Cloth masks are not. The CDC also recommends, which is what my sons, who are dentists also recommend, is to use your cloth mask or a cheap mask over the KN95 mask to keep the outs
  10. Hey gang, I bought 500 KN95 masks made to FDA specifications. Actually my two sons, who are dentists took some of them, that's why we were able to get the good medical grade ones. These are sterile and each masks is individually packaged so they stay clean until you need them. Not looking to make money off of them I will sell them for what they cost me. 10 for $20 plus $4 shipping. I didn't need 500 masks but that was the minimum we could buy. What a joke! A mask that cost us $1.60 with shipping Custom's whacked me 40 cents per mask in import duty. Even the government is out
  11. Just because of you Grubstake I bought a wireless remote microphone. So no matter how far I am away from the camera my voice should be loud and clear. I am going to have to re-do this video, as soon as it's not 213 degrees out. Doc
  12. Rob did you mean a tad THICKER? Rather than thinner? My G-Spot scoop weighs more than the typical scoop. Doc
  13. Rob mistyped the url, here is the proper one. Doc
  14. This is a demonstration of the Gold SPOT™ being used as a portable gold pan. It's extremely effective. Don't worry about the first few minutes where I am out of frame. Leo Aranza, my buddy, takes over and the rest of the video is well framed. -Doc
