  1. Are There Replacement Cushions for the Koss UR-30 Headphones That Really Fit?

    While I have upgraded to better headphones for my CTX3030, I still have the original Koss UR-30 Headphones as a back-up. The black vinyl covering on the ear cushions is flaking badly (my wife teases me about the black flakes on my ears after using the headphones). I bought a pair of...
  2. Where do Folks Sell the Gold and Silver Jewelry They Find?

    I have no idea where my fellow hobbyists typically sell their gold & silver finds--local pawn shops, jewelers, or mail away companies? Is there a different answer for gold, silver, jewelry with stones, etc.? Even though I have been metal detecting for over a decade, it is only now that my...
  3. Backpack Found for CTX 3030 Size Detector

    I have been looking for a backpack-style bag that I could use to carry my Minelab CTX3030, and have finally found one. I was interested in a bag with two straps, like a backpack, that I could use when traveling to remote locations, either on foot or bike. Many of the bags that I have seen only...
  4. A Step Back in Time; Vintage Garrett Freebie

    I had to laugh when I was going through a drawer recently and found this vintage freebie from Garrett Detectors, which is probably 30 years old. It is kind of funny to think, "What does a comb have to do with metal detecting?" but it was a simpler time 3 decades ago. I understand a Garrett...
  5. Backpack Recommendations for CTX 3030 Size Detector

    I want to check in with the collective brain trust and see if anyone has a recommendation for a backpack that would hold a Minelab CTX3030? I have normal carrying cases for my detectors, but I need something that I can strap on my back when day hiking to more remote locations, or when traveling...

    1. Howdy! Like many of you, I suffered through the long wait times to get my hands on some of the high quality Milspec Gear, made by Van Queen, an injured Iraq War Army veteran and his crew. As we know, the company has gone under and one can no longer obtain this super high quality gear. I am...

  9. THRID PARTY BUYER PROTECTION PLANS??

    I have noticed that some expensive metal detectors (new & used) on e _ _ _ are offering buyer protection plans. A new Minlab Excal II had a 3-year protection plan with Square_ _ _ _ for something like $279. A used Excal II had a plan offered for one year, etc. I was surprised to see anyone...
  10. List of Excal II Customize Options for New Purchasers

    I have the bug to buy a new Excal II after owning a CTX3030 for a few years. I am learning more about the unit every day, especially the ways that users have customized the Excal II. The trouble is that one site offers a carbon shaft, another may offer a knob guard, and someone else offers a...
  11. USING CTX 3030 IN OCEAN VS. PURCHASING A SECOND DEDICATED WATERPROOF DETECTOR

    Sorry if this question has been discussed in other threads--I looked, but couldn't find exactly what I am after. I have owned a CTX 3030 for about three years, using it for land and out-of-water beach use. I am interested in getting into shallow ocean detecting, in water about chest deep. My...

  14. ❎ SOLD Milspecgear Custom Made Carrying Case for MineLab CTX 3030

    Many of you are familiar with Van Q, the injured Iraq War Army veteran, who ran Milspecgear for several years--I am pretty sure that it no longer in operation. A couple of years ago, I convinced Van to make me a custom carrying case for my Minelab CTX3030, which he did. It is a beautiful case...
  15. San Diego/Orange Co. Low Tide Disappointment--Any Feedback?

    Happy New Year to you all. I was excited to get out into the shallow surf and take advantage of the record low tides at the end of December and beginning of January, but came up empty-handed. I spent four days with my Minelab CTX3030 in the surf in Del Mar, Oceanside, and Laguna Beach, but...
  16. Control Screen Issues on Minelab CTX 3030

    My CTX 3030 is about a year old, but has not been used a great deal. It is stored in a dark, cool room. It has only been submerged in water once, about 3 months ago. Almost immediately after I did my first computer connected update (a month ago), an intermittent gray line appeared on the...
  17. Is the GTI 2500 Still a Player?

    In reading the many posts on this site, I see the ACE 250/350 and AT PRO written about a lot, but rarely see a post about the GTI 2500. I also see that the GTI 2500 is the most expensive Garrett unit being offered by third party sellers like Kellyco, which would lead one to believe that it is...
  18. Using CTX 3030 Underwater--Any Precautions You Can Share?

    This may sound silly, but I am a bit nervous about using my CTX 3030 completely underwater at the beach. As the weather gets warmer, I would like to use my CTX 3030 in the surf, as deep as I can manage--chest to shoulder high (I am 6'5"). I was wondering if any of those who have used the CTX...
  19. San Diego/Orange County, CA Beach Sand Restoration Project--Yikes!

    I was hoping to find some discussion on this website about the beach sand restoration project that is currently going on along the beaches of San Diego County and Orange County, CA. As a new owner of a Minelab CTX3030, I am really bummed out that tons of beach treasure is being buried under 12...
  20. Carrying Case Suggestions for Minelab CTX 3030

    I am picking up my new Minelab CTX 3030 tomorrow. I am wondering if anyone has advice on the best quality carrying case that fits this machine. It makes sense to invest some bucks in a carrying case that will protect my $2,000 investment. In looking around, I naturally see the Minelab Super...
