Matrix M6 in desert?

Hi Billy,

IMHO look for a used GMT or MXT the M6 is just not suited to prospecting.

Take a look at Whites new entry level gold unit the $499 GMZ. Of course the TDI is a option if you can afford $1599

Or better yet a used Minelab PI. I'd try and find a GP 3500.

nvchris, tnx for tip.. I needed to know that. I use GMT & very happy with it. Just considering a back-up unit, suitable for desert use. Thanks again

ps.. Really attracted to TDI, but wary of weight & learning curve. Cheers.

There is a perception that PI's have a "steep learning curve". I think the opposite is true that it's the multi task VLF units that take the longest to learn.

As for the weight issue I solved that with the use of a HipStick.

I use one on all my detectors even the "lightweight" ones.

This was sent to me by a HipStick user. (thanks Chuck!)

I'm not sure which Whites detector he's using.

Chris, Actually, I find the GMT pretty simple to use, along with that "good feel" in my hands. TDI interest started when a fellow prospector nailed a 19 oz nugget @ 30 inches. Then there's the old saying among motorcycle racers: "It's 80% rider & 20% machine". Thanks again for input, it really helps. Cheers.
