    CTX 3030 Platinum & gold

    Here are my keepers from a couple of short 2 hour water hunts this weekend in South Florida, an 18K & Platinum band, 14K with diamonds and another chunky 18K band.

    Thanks, both bands were found in the water but the diamond ring was found in the wet sand. I always like to sweep along the wet sand opposite the area I am going to be water hunting especially when I see any rocks in the wet sand.
    Cheers Gary

    Gary nice finds. Curious about something, do you believe the 3030 made a difference or would other machines done similar results? I ask, because a friend is possiblt interested in upgrading from his Excalibur II.

    We hunt similar beaches, just probably north of where you found those.

    Again very nice.

    These finds were all fresh drops in heavily hunted areas so on these particular finds I cannot say that the CTX 3030 made a difference apart from being able to use my metal detecting time more effectively. The CTX 3030 allowed me to get to the finds first before the full time water hunter's in the area had a chance to scoop them up. I did not have to dig the obvious penny targets (12-36) and corroded bottle caps which I have found to be much easier to identify with the CTX 3030 than with the Excalibur. Some crusty bottle caps sound good with the Excalibur, all crusty bottle caps look bad with the visual discrimination features on the CTX 3030.
