  1. Well cared for GPX5000 I have owned this since new (not much of a gold hunter so it does not have a lot of use.) You all know the specs of the 5000 but here are the details of the package. Well maintained GPX5000 DETacc Signal AmplifierCoils : total of 4 lower rods11" Round DD11" Round Mono15 x 12-inch Commander Mono5x10 Coiltek Joey DD12 x 8 Coiltek Platypus Mono17" NuggetFinder Mono (Litz Wire)18" Super Goldsearch coil (actually made in Australia)Coltek 1x8" probe with switch (Never used)Stock battery with heavy duty cord3 LiPo battery kit and charger. Reduces the weight and allows you to use the smaller batteries with no wires connected to you. Works fantastic.HarnessHip Stick set up2 control box covers--1 brand new Thanks Ron Swenson Ron (CA)
  2. Most of the gold found with the CTX has been with the 11 inch stock coil. To be honest, I forgot about the coiltek aftermarket coil. Hopefully someday we will have the opportunity to test it out. So many toys on the list,,lol
  3. Probably around a half ounce that night. Total, we are at around 5 ounces.
  4. Mark and I found a little patch and have been having a good time finding a few pieces of gold! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Hqqvd0Mg9I
  5. Hey Ron, Thanks for the input. I will pass the info on to my buddy and I am sure he is willing to accept reasonable offers on the machine. He was using for meteorites and has a couple of them so is thinning the herd a bit. After seeing your post I did check FeeBay and think it is in the range but on the upper end of the range as you stated. But it is a nice machine and will be shipped at that price (or at best offer)
  6. LOL I wish that was me & Mark!! But that 5 pounder was found pretty far away from me. Thanks for the video plug though!! No more big nuggets for us: We did get the 4 oz, 2.5 oz, 1.4 oz and a 1 oz during our run though. Also found our first patch. (30-40 smaller ones) Some idiot started to follow us and jumped in. Gold Fever is a crazy illness!! Hence our silence! Ron Swenson Ron (CA) If that was me I would be shouting and bragging my butt off!! LOL
