QED is here! ML have NOT stopped the QED!
Goldsearch Australia has been appointed the Australian Distributor for the QED. QED info on the Goldsearch website has been updated.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED!
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin have NO vested  or pecuniary interests in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully!

One of the  people  here who  has tested a QED prototype had some ground  that he could not balance his ML on with a mono coil but could achieve GB with the QED.BW has a sample of this ground which reads on the QED 148 by far the highest  reading so far uncounted. The ground is about 70% iron and if you drop a magnet into it the magnet picks up virtually all the ground! When BW showed me this i was amazed!This ground is worse than even  BW Beggary hill Wedderburn test patch!!!!

G'day Doug,
Yes there's ground like that here in nsw where my gpx 5000 will not ground balance or the sdc 2300. Even a DD struggles and goes out of balance. Would be nice to know if the QED will be able to GB?

Excellent!

Can someone check, if those hot Fe soil alone has some degree of magnetic properties too?
Mean, if dust or small parts of those soil stick to usual iron? Check to magnetite ore content.

Ignore the posters elsewhere who are pushing the false news that the QED has Gb problems  and  rather listen to those that  are actually using a QED. The false news posters and liars elsewhere don't have a QED or have never used one and they are only trying to protect  vested or their own interests by posting false news!

Quotes  from some long term QED users re Gb.
jrbeatty Posted: Fri Feb 10, 2017 3:30 pm  
-”---Reg and I have never had any problems with ground balance anywhere”
  
YF quote
"The QED wearing the same coils as the 5000, seems to outperform the 5000 in most if not all cases.
The ability of the QED to GB in places where the 5000 can't, is staggering.
Switching the 5000 to any of the smooth timings, leaves the 5000 so compromised on depth it's nothing short of ridiculous.
The QED is pulling targets the 5000 can't get close to in some places."
Other QED users  are reporting the same thing!
So who do believe those that have a QED and are using it GF in Vic, NSW,Qld or those that don't have one(who are pushing the false news that the QED has Gb problems) and are talking about something that they have ZERO knowledge or field experience with?

BW did some testing the morning using his own 1oz nugget and a 12" mono(  forget what make).He Gb'd the QED over a small test patch of some beggary hill dirt at a gain of 1 and was able to sweep the coil across this patch and beyond where the mineralization is lower ie a very high mineralization contrast without any ground noise.He placed his 1oz nugget in the middle of his test patch and was still able to detect it at about 10-11".So even at the lowest gain the detection depth is close to what Reg got in his 1oz nugget  testing at a gain of 5 on the QED. The biggest impact of the gain will probably be on the smallest targets.

The take home message from the above is that if you encounter the most horrendous ground  which forces you to run at a gain of 1 your QED will still give good depth and sensitivity.

The attached pic of the SMD side of the PCB with a 5 cent piece for scale comparison.
