Minelab GPX 5000 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on August 20, 2019):
- Best of many detectors I have had, or now own, especially for extra deep gold nuggets and flakes, in super tough mineralized California gold soils. Expensive but worth it, the 15% Veteran discount sure helped! The super wide range of setting options, take time to learn, but help to allow you to understand your soils for either minimum surface or deep object settings, regardless of your primary type of object search. Plus, the detector with the right type coil, will go split second silent when passing over object to determine metal (ferrous) or gold (non-ferrous), which can save digging up worthless objects, but only should you decide tp pass up on digging anyway, especially time and work saving, when you become familiar with the depth level of sound generated by the object. Also recommend, after purchase an investment in waterproof coils for river, stream, or creek water areas. Best of Luck regardless of what you hunt, Ricky.
