The Andy Sabisch book and YouTube videos will help to get you acquainted with the CTX-3030, but time in the field with your CTX and you will learn its full potential. It’s going to take time and patience to truly understand it. Happy hunting.Just got my CTX also and have not done any detecting with it yet. I have watched a lot of youtube videos and I'm reading a book by Andy Sabich. I am hoping to understand this thing before I head out with it. I don't have another detector and I have no previous experience detecting, so I'm trying to take it slow.
