Picked myself up a GPX5000. Looking forward to covering some ground in the coming weeks. Ballarat/Creswick next weekend & Maryborough in mid Feb.

I agree with Kon. I live in Maryborough and also have a 5000. But I run an 8" Commander coil on mine most days. Right now it is bloody hot and very dry up here with the ground like concrete.V51 You would need at least 3 days of heavy rain rain clould to be able to drive your pick into the ground enough to say you broke the surface.V11

Those are there to wedge under the door to stop it blowing shut.

I wear decent hiking boots when detecting

Thanks Kon

Nice genuine unit at a decent price. Seller packaged it better than anything I have ever received.

Have already got my settings logged in & cant wait to hear it chirp on the yellow

Not sure where we are going up in Maryborough Wombat. Meeting up with someone smarter than thou for a bit of brainstorming.

Cant wait to poke around with it.

As for the picks, got given a lovely nice long handle pick today so it is sure to get a decent test out!

Not sure about flippers. A dinghy might have been more apt!
