It is a tight snap. But it will come back apart. Don't be afraid to pull on it. I did it a couple of times before I figured it out.

Hello,

I've decided to give my harness a try. I've snapped in the j-strut incorrectly and can't seem to get to unsnap. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
SP

You just have to pull real hard to get it to unsnap. I had to lay my harness on the floor and hold it down with my foot and use both hands to pull the strut out of attachment.

I'm now 67 and I've used the 3030 with 17" coil for 2 yrs now and only beach and water hunting. I go an average of 6 hrs/day w/o a harness and change arms every 30 to 60 minutes. I look at it as developing stamina and as my daily workout. I have the pro swing and it does work well once adjusted, but prefer the freedom of no harness. NEVER use a harness in water - too many dangers.

Regarding updates, please don't forget about the battery seal update.
Love my 17" coil, that I swing 5-6 hrs/day at age 67. My go to coil.
My data show that you get about 10% more good targets with the 17" vs 11" coil on the CTX 3030 over the same hunt time.
And, regarding the 17" coil, please note that dealers have the CTX 3030 on sale now (Jan 2019) and get the 17" coil FREE!!!! Cost me about $400!

Hello,I recently purchased the Pro Swing 45.
It's great.
CosT $140 shipped but well worth it.

I'm 63 and swing a 3030.
With 11" coil.
My pro Swing 45 works great.
I'm thin so it took me some time to finally get it adjusted.
When I did ,it has allowed me to enjoy longer hunts with less energy.
Good luck on your choice,it is a pricy but works great.

When I use the pro swing, the back keeps creeping up. Is there a way to keep the back from creeping up? Thanks in advance.
