CTX 3030 Tone ID Profiles
"Hunting by ear" enables me to maximize my time in the field. On the Explorer or E-TRAC, I can assign a single tone, two tones, four tones or multiple tones as a response to either conductive or ferrous based targets. If I am hunting in Two Tone Ferrous (TTF) on my E-TRAC, targets with a ferrous value equal to or less than 17 will produce a high tone. A low tone will be produced on targets with a ferrous value greater than 17. These ferrous parameters (1-17, 18-35) are established within the software, with no option for the user to change them. Others who...

Beach hunting with the CTX 3030
I was really excited when I heard the news that Minelab had made a new waterproof metal detector and even more excited that I would have the chance to test the new machine. As a long time hardcore beach and shallow water hunter adding a new Minelab machine to my beach treasure hunting arsenal was certainly welcome. ...

The CTX 3030 attitude
Each detector has its own personality. As I continue to learn about the CTX 3030 I am aware that the detector imparts a certain attitude to the treasure hunter. As I detected a few North East Florida Beaches during Tropical Storm Beryl. The CTX 3030 performed seamlessly despite the challenging weather. From wind to rain to getting hit by a few high waves the CTX 3030 has a can do... go anywhere" attitude. When a hurricane or storm hits the coast I like to hit between three to five beaches, so I can better focus in on a high potential erosion event....

13" Ultimate DD Coil Field Test Report
After having the pleasure of using the Detech 10 x 12" SEF coil a few years ago before they became widely available for distribution, I was hoping their new 13" Ultimate coil would be a similar rock-steady, deep performer....and possibly even better. Well, only time will tell if the Ultimate coil ends up being touted as "better" for me but for now Id say Im very impressed...VERY! I have been using a buddys Ultimate 13" coil for a couple of weeks and have put quite a few hours on it on both my SE and E-Trac. After all the nice finds I made w...
