Well, today is going to be a great day. My CTX 3030 is scheduled to be delivered. Currently I swing an Equinox 800 and an Excalibur II (for detecting when I scuba dive) and I am absolutely STOKED about the addition of the 3030. Right now I am only getting the stock 11" coil but want to add a smaller one in the near future. Any recommendations on starting with the CTX? I hunt in the central Texas area (San Antonio). Thanks in advance

Don't get frustrated by the steep learning curve!

Get ready to find the most silver you've ever found! I think what this machine does is helps you dig less trash and dig up more treasures!

Thank you all. Yea, I am sure it will be a big learning curve but I am ready. I have been swinging an Equinox 800 and an Excalibur II for a couple of years. The one thing I have already seen is I need to SLOW down on my swing

Get Andy Sabisch’s book. It’s very informative!

Sorry for the late response. Just now saw this. I am enjoying the 3030 and have found a bunch of silver since I have gotten it. I am operating it in 'baby' mode for the most part. I havent gotten into changing or downloading settings. Truth be told, I used my Excalibur 2 most of the spring and summer as I dive and treasure hunt.
