    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    I'd be interested to see if there is an actual PERFORMANCE increase, or they did what White's did with the V3,and just focused on bells and whistles.

    What if the CTX3030 combines VLF with PI technology?

    hope the weight isn't over 5 pounds like I've seen on the web, would be nice if it was in the $2K range also.

    MINELAB CTX3030 -- Its always the same with minelab and other company's and it is true........they make big claims on bigger better faster machines than the prevoius model, for example the Minelab explorer was a great machine and still is, the new etrac was released years later but no real improvements in depth infact the explorer is probably slightly deeper than the etrac, depth is not everything but when paying hundreds of pounds more you should get better improvements from the previous models..... lets hope this new minelab can really prove much improvement above the older models in the field, this was claimed about the etrac but was no deeper.......silversimon .............

    I agree with you silversimon, the etrac is a massive letdown for me on depth. The old XS beats this detector hands down on depth. Lets hope this new model has improved - never mind all the bells and whistles like most detectorists dont use.....what the hell do we need a colour screen for anyway?

    If you want a deep Explorer you got an Explorer II and just changed the stock coil for a SEF one. Minelab was famous for giving percentage increases in depth with its gold machines until people worked out that the latest versions would now be going down feet not inches if all the improvement percentages were added to the depth of the original SD.

    The only real advantage on the CTX is the hint that deep non ferrous will now indicate as that, rather than iron.
