IMHO, simular to the Whites Prizm V configuration style below(but non-digital, in a Tesoro analog manual toggle switch, dial, and knob style like on the GMZ's box), this is how the new GMZ should have been designed(more compact, lighterweight, and the controls easier to see-access), instead of the bulkier box under the shaft.

Do not get me wrong and this is just constructive criticizm as I would take a GMZ instead of and over a Vaquero for small gold hunting any day. A GMZ would be better than a Vaquero for small nugget hunting. I just wish the control box would have been on the upper shaft instead like the Prism V and Vaquero, is the only thing, and all I was trying to explain.

New White's GMZ (Pronounced Jim's) vs GMT

Good day all. :smile: White's Electronics makes many detectors that can be used for prospecting but I think the GMZ is an attempt to sell a budget model prospecting detector. Comparing the GMZ to the GMT is like apples and oranges. I found some pics (one from Kellyco and one posted by DiggerBob) for a visual comparison.

The GMT sells for $800 and the GMZ sells for $500 and both detectors (I do believe) are for prospecting only. For $300 more you get a lot more detector. :whites:

While at a local White's distributor, the store's owner compared the two detectors with a small gold sample that looked around 0.05 grams. The GMT detected at 2 inches whereas the GMZ had a bit of a problem sounding off as well as recovering to sound off again. Maybe, the electronics can be adjusted to detect the smaller gold but that may have an effect on larger pieces and that is something the White's techs can tinker around with. :argue:

If White's wants to sell the GMZ, I think it should have a much, much lower price. I foresee the GMZ being discontinued unless White's gets their act together and makes some adjustments or puts a better package together. Oh yeah, that's right, they already have it, it's a GMT! :clapping:

I agree with you. Needs to be around the $349 mark also Fisher coming out with the Gold Bug in mid nov $549 retail but it looks real good for mid level gold machine.
