Newbie from mackay nth qld
« on: February 16, 2019, 04:02:38 pm »
Hey all,

Very new to gold hunting ,I have bought  a gpx 500 second hand with ten hours on her and have a few extra aftermarket coils. I have not use her yet and have owned her for 2 years was wondering if I should mod her first as I have read some great reports about woodies changes .

I would really suggest running the 5000 stock for 6 months or so, or long enough to kind of learn it. Then definitely have it modded by Woody. That way you will really appreciate his work.

   I agree with what Shep says.  Learn the detector in its stock form first and then have it modded.  I just got mine back from having Woody’s mods done.  Unfortunately it’s done nothing but snow and rain here since and I have not been able to try it out.  I have however had two other detectors modified by Woody and those mods improved those detectors.
