    If You Could Only Have One Gold Detector...

    GPX 5000 for sure. You can take it out of the box and find gold. I found a 2.05 oz Arizona gold nugget with factory presets. And last year it found over 3 oz of gold in Arizona in 2 weeks, detecting only on weekends.
  6. That was awesome thanks for sharing.

    Missed 3 weeks of beeping due to DUH!

    Just a heads up for those of you that don't use a bungee or hipstick to help hold up that 5000 with a large coil. I thought I was indestructible and didn't need one of THOSE things. Well I had the dreaded rotator cuff surgery on my detector arm in mid January. Now after 14 weeks of physical therapy, they said if I am careful, I can detect with a bungee for an hour or less until this fall. Then its a gradual rebuilding of my arms ability to detect a full day. Take care of your shoulders.THIS SUCKS

    Minelab Service

    It was doing that before I broke it. Largest nugget this year was a 1.3 oz ,but it also found a .9 oz and a .5 oz all in May. Dave

    Minelab Service

    I had an accident and fell on my GPX 5000. I slid down a hill into a wash and landed on the detector. One of the back legs broke, which opened the side of the case around the rubber seal.It still worked after the crash, I found 3 small dinks and 2 that were about a pennyweight each. I sent it into the service center 2.5 weeks ago and got it back yesterday.That is impressive. I'll get it out next week and see if it works any better. Dave

    new and looking for help

    The GPAA will have their annual Stanton event next month. I think it's the weekend of the 29th. If you are new, that is the place to meet other metal detectorists and attend their workshops. Good luck! Dave
