yeah that would be nice wire up some etrac coils must have been reading my mind but I have no idea what those sockets are called or wiring details sure someone has had a crack at it surely ??

Not buying another detector until someone makes a dedicated park gold detector with 100 points in the gold range, sick of the same old same old, I need something to met my detecting needs and NO one makes what I need.
anyone can find silver its a sitting duck I have more than enough of those duck hunters, so my pocket book stays closed until someone see's the future of detecting.

if you are out there I can let you know what I need..

Etrac
MX5

More coils than any sane person would need.

Machines are not in order of preference !! I can't read big blocks of writing , so the enter key is a good tool.

I share my experience of my detecting both the good and not so good both on and off the field, not here to keep everyone happy, just share my experience! if it helps someone that's great, if not that's great too--- so take what you need and leave the rest !

I was told the it is not just the connector, but the coil is "different" on the CTX 3030 coils compared to the Explorer series coils and they could not be interchanged.
Is this true or just a different connector for the waterproof CTX?

Thanks!

I don't know Jeff is the short answer...

the medium answer is there has been no after market coils other than a coiltek 10 x 5 which would have been minelab approved and nothing sense I think coiltek and minelab may have had a bit of a falling out anyway none of the eastern European company's have made any and that could be because they got a very threatening letter from minelab or they don't want to spend money cracking the as you say code.

the long answer is someone knows and they are not telling but I am surprised no one has cracked a ctx coil apart to see what's in there or tried a plug on an etrac coil to see what happens , bit out of my league and I have other little projects on the go and maybe the ctx has about lived its life with me I have more testing to do on the Russian detectors before I decide anyway sure someone out there knows something who haven't signed their life away to minelab :buds:
