What were your reasons? other than it is a darn good detector. I bought mine after getting fed up with my Nox 800 for my type of hunting. Urban and suburban trashy parks trying to find gold rings.

I did, it's my third one, I keep giving them to my kids, I have aDeus2, equinox 800, and just sold a legend, there isn't any detector better then the ctx 3030 I have had them all, you can't beat it.

Reminds me of whites dfx minus the chatter, Ctx 3030 is something special, as good as it gets.

I did this spring, moving up from a Nox 600. After much analysis paralysis and almost buying into the hype around the Deus2, I followed my gut and went with the well proven performance of the CTX.

I have both, the Deus2 and CTX. Purchased both in the last few months. The Deus is nice, but the CTX is a much more serious unit in my opinion

The Deus 2 balance with the 11" coil is like a stick with 10 pound weight on the end, at my age that's what it feels like anyway, I'll take my 6 pound CTX 3030 any day with my sling. At 87 I have enough trouble holding my pants up LOL.

XP Deus I (2013), Vallon-VMH3CS (2015), Whites TDI SL (201:geek: and Nokta Makro the Legend that I paid in 2021, but recived in 2022 :)

going to be interesting to see how you like it and how it works for you. What type of hunting do you do?

going to be interesting to see how you like it and how it works for you. What type of hunting do you doI basically search for coins, but I have had a good number of finds that are required to be handed in to the county archaeologist, which is handed over to the antiquities collections at the museum in Oslo / Norway. These are finds of various utility objects and axes, suit buckles (fibula) buttons, rings, coins older than 1650. The period ranges from the older Germanic Iron Age (500 B.C.) to the late Middle Ages. A good deal of loot from the Viking Age, such as insular fittings that the Vikings robbed from the British monasteries ....

Now that sounds like some very interesting hunting, that Ctx will perform like a champ.

Am thinking of another one, had to let the last one go due to personal circumstances. I'll be honest, I've been waiting for the new nexus to show but for the money I can get a used ctx with an extra large coil. If I need recovery speed I'll just use the aka.
