Got an email today from a Minelab dealer


BRAND NEW GPZ COIL COMING SOON!
There is a rumour in the wind that an Australian company will soon be making GPZ 7000 coils.

At present there are only Russian made after market coils being made, so hold off and bag yourself a genuine Aussie made one. They will be cheaper than the Russian coils and, as always, very well made.

Will they work as good as the Russian coils through? The x coils are finding gold on ground that’s been covered with the minelab coils.

Thankyou Putin for giving ML a slap up the back of the head thumbsup

Any word on sizes or a round about time table? Coming soon is too open ended and could mean next season

Well now I am intrigued. Better start saving I guess
Hope for a small coil for tight spots to get close to the ground

This will either be interesting or not neutral hope it isn't the latter, something to spend the tax rebate on to recharge the local economy smile beer

Keep in mind that is a prototype and will not resemble the finished product.

That bracket appears to be off the top of a ML coil rivited(?) to the proto coil for testing purposes only.

would hope they glued that bracket on. Rivets would be prone to wearing loose with continual knocking, then the movement would send false signals all day! cant see any rivets tho

Probably glued aswell but two big rivets clearly visable
NF coils have 3 rivets holding the bracket to the coil (aswell as glue)

plus it is only a prototype, not the finished product

yep...probably the best mounting system of the current coils.

Have seen plenty of cracking around the mounting area of coils where the mount is a molded part of the coil.

My original coil finds gold of all sizes. How much better can the others get?
