Waste of Money

Sam Smith in Australia - one star

With this detector, I miss many targets which Garrett ATX easily picks up. Disappointment. Such a waste of money...

Vic Wright in NQ Australia - good

The GPZ is as close as we have to a gold magnet, got into the Electronic Gold Rush back in 79, have seen the VLF progression to the PIs. Now ZVT is doing to the PIs what they did to the VLFs.
The GPZ is a heavy machine, have found the Hipstick a must. I started out prospecting in areas the GPX 5000 had done well. Within 5 minutes of starting the GPZ, it had recovered its first nugget, only small 0.8 gram but at depth and thoroughly gone over before. GPZ was set in default, and GB instructions followed.
That first piece was the beginning. The depth of the GPZ has no equals, the sensitivity down to 0.12 of a gram, amazing for a 14" coil.
Minelab have incorporated refinements to this machine right down to the stem and bungees easy length adjustment.
The con other than the weight, the GPS data is only available through Minelabs Xchange2, for the prospector this is a total waste of the GPSs function. To access data through Xchange 2 requires internet connection and then a limited version of Google Earth. I would give the GPZ 5 stars except for this.
