Hi all
Just wondering if anyone has bought or knows any that has bought one of these chinese made GPX's. I dont think there is any question as to them being counterfeit. But of course that doesnt mean they dont work.
All opinions and input welcome, positive or negative.
Thanks
Gozzo

Gozzo, I'm going to agree with Homefire.   By the way, good to hear from you.  It's been way too long since I've seen a post from you. Welcome back!

Its no use Minelab complaining about these fakes being produced because they never had this problem when they were being made in Australia, USA and Ireland, But as soon as they moved production over that way the fakes appeared on the market, Along with the loss of Jobs in those countries and alas doing away with the chance of expansion and creating even more Jobs,

It is a well known fact that china does and will steal every bodies good ideas and great inventions and I mean EVERY BODIES, and if china wants to take up this issue with me then they can go **** EM SELVES because I can prove that as can the rest of the world,

But what More can you Expect from a country that is Built on Theft and Corruption,

Hi Gozzo , good to see you are still alive and kicking , these GPX fakes are based on a cheap VLF platform and would be unlikely to hit on a horseshoe at 2 inches , too many have been taken in by these pieces of Sh!t , buyer beware . There are forums about that show the subtle differences between the fake and the genuine item ..cheers Mick

Yea I personally didnt think they would be much chop, but I have a mate that's hell bent on getting one,
I figure if i can show him enough opinions that go with mine he might see where i am coming from. their salesman assures him its as good as the real thing, but i cant imagine what the internals look like he seems more taken by the fact they look so real.

Why don't you test drive one?run it in parallel with the real thing and see if there are differences.
if they want to sell them they should agree on the test

Listen Mate, Tell him if he cant afford the Proper GPX then tell him to buy the Whites TDI Oz Series and then he will have a Very good PI Machine that DOES Use the Coiltek/Minelab Coils and he wont regret it, tell him to Phone GoldSearch Australia they are a Good Bunch of Guys and they wont Bend him Over,

Ask him who is going to fix it when it craps out?  Send it to Minelab and they will run over it with a truck, Chuck it out and send him a letter from a Lawyer.
