GPS, Colour LCD, fully submersible to 1 meter. Super DD Coil, Internal cabling and most importantly 40% more depth over either the GPX 5000 and SCD 2300 in comparison tests on small, medium and large gold nuggets. The test i have seen are pretty amazing. over a meter down stuff.

AU$10700 rrp.

quite expensive, but comes with an awesome bag of goodies and has many smart features. Hopefully it opens up more good ground a bit deeper down. And may come down in price eventually. The second hand GPX 5000 markets have dropped in price 20% this week alone. down to $4000..

hi everyone, this machine will no doubt-ably start another scramble over the good areas that have produced good gold mainly around the GOLDEN TRIANGLE , WA AND NORTH QUEENSLAND that have been flogged to death and have given up ounces over the years not only to detectors now but to the old timers before us who originally found them ,you watch and read about all the gold this one detects ,what dose annoy me when a new machine comes out is in a lot of you tube dockos, you will see it detect gold at a normal depth that most other machines will find it and they make it look like that its the only detector that will pick it up ,they done the same when the gpx 5000 come on the market , i was watching them then and thinking that the 4000 i had at that stage would have snagged that, anyway good on those who get one ,my mates at dunolly all agree that they never purchase a new machine first up because sometimes there are some teething problems and they wait for a wile till it settles ,i cant comprehend what ther asking for them ,anyway ill keep my gpx 5000 ,im very happy with the way it operates and i have found array of gold with it ,big and very small ,have on the right coil and do it right you will do OK weather its a gpx or any other ,happy swinging enjoy the out doors and remember if you find gold its a bonus ,dazza

first big one
Kane was one of the first in Australia to buy the new detector and found 2 nuggets the first day.

Below is Mick Brown with a gpz7000 with an 88 Oz (2.5kg) nugget surrounded by stacks of SD and GPX machines.

im going to get one as soon as i can. I know your machine is great darren, but even you upgraded to it when your patch ran out with the 4500 and you started getting gold again. Im still happy with my x terra and still find gold with it, even if its a toy by comparison. but it has its limits and i would love to be able to discriminate out iron and get deeper and finer gold.

I saw sub < 0.2 gram matchhead a foot down get a strong signal with the GPZ and at that size is deeper than anything i have ever seen find gold or any metal. It seems to suit me wants. Fully submersible. Gps etc.

There is already a second hand market on the gpz with people with no time or in the wrong place i guess. Cheapest i have seen is 10 thousand with 6 hours use for one and no doubt Garrett will make something or other to compete or another new model will arrive and the price will drop even more. hopefully..
