    Theres a few opinions about the GPX models on this forum about price and target digging which puzzles me . They don,t own or use Gpx's so it based on what ??

    Re: MINELAB GPX5000 USERS

    I'll be one of those guys that will knock the GPX series on price..... I am looking for a PI to use relic hunting in VA.....no gold hunting is planned. As of now I am leaning toward the Whites TDI due to the cost factor... I can buy two of TDIs for one GPX. considering bullets are $2-3 each it takes a lot to pay for a $1300 detector, let alone a $5000 detector.

    Now if I could only get my dealer to sell me a Minelab near the price of a TDI....

    Does anyone else think the price difference is worth it to buy a GPX for relic hunting? No doubt the GPX would probably be the better machine in a gold field... if I planned on doing a lot of gold hunting I would certianly consider a GPX.

    Re: MINELAB GPX5000 USERS

    Perhaps someone can tell me why ML did not make their stock coil waterproof for the GPX5000. Given the price, you would think they would have put wheels on the coil. LOL. They make coils for the Excal that are waterproof to great depths, so why not for the 5000? Thanks Jim

    A very good question indeed! I am considering a 5000 myself, but much prefer it to come with a waterproof coil for those beach and gold stream hunts where the coil may get wet, you know a just in case kind of thing. I'm in North Alabama and live about 70 miles away for the Piedmont Updrift which is the states gold belt and the site for one of the U.S.'s first gold rushes in the early 1800's. Oh well, nuff said on that. The GPX 5000 is a great detector, second to none on finding gold in the right hands, but mine will also be used on CW and Revolutionary War relics that I have to drive to, so would it be to much to ask Minelab for a water proof coil to come with this top of the line machine, I think not!

    Re: MINELAB GPX5000 USERS

    Since my $500 sov. finds as much as my $1300 explorer, I'm going to believe my
    $1300 dollar GPX2100 will find as much as a $5000 GPX5000.

    The coils are simply NOT water resistant for the simple fact, Gold is found in the hills. LOL The machine was designed to find Gold there. That's where people have been using the GPX's are in the dirt. Now we are seeing amazing finds from the beaches, lakes and creeks all over the world using the GPX series.


    As of now, "Coil-tek" indeed makes an aftermarket underwater coil. Platypus series.

    If you buy a machine from me, we could work something out where I keep the stock MONO coil, and discount a Waterproof COIL -TEK to suit. If your interest is the beach or creeks.

    I hope this answers your question.


    This machine really is amazing folks

    Re: MINELAB GPX5000 USERS

    Here's the aftermarket Platypus coil that is water proof below.

    Again, if you want this coil, we can work out a deal to swap coils.

    Re: MINELAB GPX5000 USERS. And "Want-to-be" users.


    Hi All,

    I'm interested in buying one of the minelab GPX series detectors but I'm not sure I get anything more buying the GPX 5000 verses the GPX 4500? I went to the minelab site and did some reading on the specs for the 5000, 4800, and the 4500.. The only difference I see in them is the 5000 has a few more soil settings and a extra coil... Everything else seems to be the same? Anyone have any other facts or details they could clue me in on.

    Thanks,

    Aaron R.
