Notice what he's swinging Razz

True you could have found that nugget with pretty much any detector, possibly even a potato, but what a good time.

good on him, thats what we all look for and like he says, you just have to walk over it. maybe they was near power lines or ground the 5k cant handle, goes to show there out there and makes you dream at what the next swing could unearth.
one thing to note, this nugget was found a few weeks b4 the release of the 7k and there was no actual reference to the machine that he used. possibly some minelab promo guy got on to it and gave him a 7k to swing for the tape Shocked

Martin it is a nice lump but to set the record straight it was found with a 4500 back at the start of feb,

the sceptic in me says a very cleaver piece of marketing notice they never actually say it was found with a GPZ but I recon it is implied

Nice dab for sure.
