  3. Lowering price to $1,700 including Ground Shipping. Thanks, Don
  4. Hello Des, I just need the funds right now. Otherwise, I wouldn't be selling. The detector is almost brand new, works perfect. Thanks, Don
  5. We have hot ground in Washington State. (Liberty Area Basalt, been detecting since 2008) Thanks, Don Newell
  6. I have a "like new" condition very lightly used Minelab CTX 3030 V2 detector for sale. (V2 meaning it's the 2016 updated version with better seals.) All standard items are included in the original Minelab box. (battery, charger, WM10 wireless module, headphones, cables, manuals, etc.) It was purchased NEW from AZO in June of 2016. Price: $1,600 including Free Ground Shipping in the USA. Please call or email if interested. Thanks, Don Newell 206-755-8927 (Located in Washington State)
  7. What settings do you guys use to hear the "missed beats" or pauses in tone on the GPZ? -Don
  8. Thanks for the coil tests Steve! I have the 6" smart coil for trashy areas. I am new to the CTX but I have found that maxing out the sensitivity at 30 gains a lot of depth compared to Auto +3. Using the 6" Smart coil, I get about 6 inches in Auto +3 but 10 inches in Sens 30 on a dime. -Don
  9. Hello Steve, Have you had a chance to compare the 6" Smart Coil to the Coiltek elliptical coil yet? Thanks, Don
  10. I spoke to somebody that is involved with Minelab coil testing. He said there is a small GPZ coil in the works. We might get some details in the next 1-2 months. I hope this is true because in my terrain and inside the local mine tunnels a small coil is needed before the bigger ones.
  11. Hello Merton, I am a coin & jewelry hunter with the CTX. Relics are not really worth my time unless made of precious metals. (I don't live on the East Coast where there are good historical relics to dig.) I would buy the Deus for plucking old coins from the trash as you say. I will order Andy's book on the Deus and see what I can learn. I am looking at the 9" Deus Coil or waiting for the new elliptical coil. (V4) -Don
  12. Thanks for the response Steve. I might pick one up when the V4 9x5 coil comes out for those heavy trash situations. I know there are a lot of people out there that love the Deus. For now, I am still learning the CTX. (I bought Andy's book) -Don
  13. Steve, How is the XP Deus working for you? Is it really a worthwile addition for a CTX owner with small 6" smart coil for unmasking? I tried the Nokta Relic. I wanted to like it but too many false signals had me digging tons of trash. Some iron gives high signals even just 2 inches down in my dirt, out of the hole it goes low signal. I don't have time for that. Coins go into the upper nineties for target ID so a nail & coin look the same. I understand it's different in other States with milder soil. I finally bought a new CTX instead. These machines work here! I never seem to be able to get away from a Minelab. (Fisher has been good as well. Accurate target ID) -Don
  14. I would like to hear about how the field tests of the 14x9 Evo coil go. I saw 2 people on an Australian forum say they are noisy. One may have just had a bad coil. I have been thinking about picking one up over the 12" round.
  15. Dilek emailed me that the Gold Racer coils work on the AU Gold Finder. However, the little GR19 coil I received today was defective straight out of the box. Super noisy with intermittent overloads when held in air. Yuck! I think something is wrong with the connector cable wiring. When I hook up my 5" round coil in the same spot, everything goes back to normal. (Quiet operation) Nokta/Makro needs to get their act together on quality control. -Don
