Right there! Plus, reports on the hydrodynamics/bouyancy of the coil..does it float? Will a guy need to drop a glass rod down inside the lower shaft to keep that coil on the deck under the water? Will the shaft take the stresses of dedicated water hunting or will a guy have to pop for an aftermarket? Things like this...


Detecting is the study of Mankinds interaction with topography, the untrustworthiness of pockets, and metals desire to return to the Earth from whence it came.

I guess minelab needs to come out with a chain-sensing coil for the CTX.

I'm in your corner Low Tide. I'm in love with the CTX. I've had a lot of machines that I hoped would replace it. But I haven't found one yet. I'm not saying it's the best for everyone, but it works for me.

CTX 3030
