3030 - has been sent back to mine lab twice for repairs after purchase but it's good . You come to the beach Comp your 100 percent fit. Dry sand - 18 karat ring not confirmed 32 bucks plus change in the dry sand.
Wet sand 5 bucks , large steel ring, and some old 1 and 2 cent peices .
I don't get to the desert as often as I would like and it seems lately my results haven't been what I like either. When I do get out several times a week it is here at the beach where I live.
Last night I went out with my wife in the weeeee hours of the morning when the tide was low and we had a good night. These are my finds.
I use my 3030 with the large coil. This lets me cover some ground but also find coins in the wet sand down to 14 inches or so. Most are not that deep. My best target last night was a moonshiner (on the surface) and didn't need any digging.
The ring is 14k/7.5dwt with 3 puma type cats on it. The more I look at it the more I like it but it doesn't fit except on the pinky.
You guys post so many of your gold nugget finds it was time that I show you what I find.
Happy Hunting on the Beach or in the Desert.

So i decided to treat myself but not for any particular reason :) so i got myself a used CTX with 3 coils.......the wireless module, complete protection ,brand new XP back headphones but no charger :( , also got an xterra gold pack on his way used also but after swapping some gear with a friend and 13" detect coil for my Gbug....and i think thats all,no ...i forgot a headhunter pulse i bought and left to a friend who never used it ........i think i got enough gear for a while.....
So I was out today for a couple of hours detecting, haven't even used the first set of batteries yet since I received my detector. After a couple hours the threshold all the sudden stopped working. Replace the batteries and still nothing. Sounds off on some targets but no threshold. Makes a crackling sound when I turn the detector off.... anyone know what the heck's going on with this thing?
