    That top video concerns me. I wonder if our AT Pros and AT Golds react the same to that situation?
    I have never held a CTX 3030, but most people seem to use those shoulder harness rigs (like the guy Lance did in "The Detectorists").

    Yeah I don't think comparing an Ace 250 to a Tejon was a very fair test, but I thought it was impressive that the Tejon would read that coin underneath a large set of Kleins.
    My buddy had an ace with a big coil, and he said it would go deep.
    you should try that test with your AT Pro with and w/out discrim, and see what happens and let us know.
    Maybe I will try it later with my XP, and re-post.

    Ive never used a CTX, but ive read on here that a lot of people say it gets heavy after a couple hours of swinging it.
    As for the harness, ive never tried one, but that just seems like a lot of extra stuff that would take time to put on and take off, not to mention getting in the way.
    Id love to try or own one, but even if you get a used one its gona cost 1600+.
    I used to hunt with a guy who had one. He only kept it for a few months, sold it, and went back to the Fisher F75.
    Im not trying to bash the CTX, but I will say that I know a few people that have owned one, and opted out for something lighter.
    If I had the money to buy another machine, it would be the F75 or the Teknetics T2. Both are light and supposedly fast, deep, and not very costly.
    Another day older and deeper in debt.

    Yeah, you mean this one.? I love the way that guy talks. "Aahhhhh just wanted to do a quick Tayest".
    Pretty impressive video, and that accent is good stuff.
