Minelab GPX 6000 – New 2021 Minelab Metal Detector

Minelab metal detector manufacturer has announced the release of a new metal detector, GPX 6000. In fact, the brand has registered the model in the summer of 2020, and the release itself is planned in 2021 (well you know, all these lockdowns, it is hard to make any clear plans these days).

GPX series was specifically created for gold prospecting. While some detectorists use the series for relics as well, the main advantage of the series is an efficient performance in various locations, including complicated ones. GPX has been keeping the level of its popularity since 2006, which is a positive sign. Also, there are many compatible coils for these detectors on the market. But what to expect with the new machine?

New Features and Tech Specs

Minelab has already revealed some of the tech specs and cool features that will be offered in GPX 6000.

The very first characteristic is weight, and the weight is really heavy (around 6-7 lbs). Next, the company does not argue that the model is going to be not really budget-friendly; but honestly, who can expect that from a high-end metal detector for gold prospecting?

Minelab promises that the shaft will be redesigned, and the new model will be better balanced and more user-friendly. This makes total sense, considering the expected weight.

The coils compatible with previous models will also be compatible with GPX 6000. However, unfortunately, the standard search coil cords do not seem to do well with the new design of the metal detector.

This is all for now, because Minelab really keeps it all secret. All that is left is to wait until the brand announces more details later.

Final Thoughts

Interestingly, we can see a curious activity Minelab demonstrates recently. They have released updates for their existing detectors, and trigger the market with promises of a new machine in the nearest future.

Many treasure hunters suggest that Minelab tries to impress the competitors, not only the customers. This makes sense, because younger companies snap at Minelab’s heels. However, hopefully, this race for headship will not impact the quality of what Minelab offers to its users.
