I am sure glad I didn't get an XP! No offense,But if I am going to spend that kind of money I would rather have a Detector brand I am familiar with. And I only live 20 minutes from their repair facility!

Hmmm ! CTX3030 ---- full waterproof FBS detector ..... but not just FBS --- FBS2 ! SmartFind 2 ... FE/CO just like the E-Trac (now, will it be the same as the E-Trac, or will it have a new mapping scale ?)
Also, wireless headphones ! Oh, and a nice looking slim digital display with what looks like to be an improved one over that of the E-Trac / Explorer, its a full COLOR display !

But, look at that battery compartment on the end of the shaft !

I wonder if the coil is also wireless ?

GPS Tracking, PC Mapping, hmm !

Bummer. I was hoping there'd be some new technology. This is just whistles and bells. Not "deeper" or ability to TID any differently than before, etc..... I mean, heck, we could wrap out explorers in plastic and accomplish this. Not that "whistles and bells" don't sell, of course (I am tired of wrapping my explorer for beach storm hunting yet prefer Exp. over Excal for the beach). So for that purpose, it's welcome, but ..... nothing new as far as tech. goes.

Not revolutionary, but a lot of improvements over the E-Trac. This looks like it has the potential to replace both the E-Trac and the Excal for many users.



Currently running the Minelab E-Trac, Excalibur and Garrett Pro Pointer.
