  1. Thanks for replies « Maxxkatt » and « « Cipher ». After testing both over several weeks, yes the Nox may be more reactive but with the CTX there is no comparison. We know what's under the 98% coil with the Ctx3030 and the right programs. And the performance is deeper.
  2. Hi Steve, Sorry for the response time. It was apparently programs created/paid that were available on the MinelabOwners forum (now closed). Many British people used it if I understood correctly. It would be a "good" program with it more open discrimination than on the original programs. An Englishman will normally send it to me. A video link that talks a :
  3. Hi, Does anyone have the "Tadpole 4" and « Ghost 4" programs for the CTX3030? I searched the net without success. Thanks. David
  4. Hi CPT, Steve and Rob, Thank you for your answers. I will try to buy it and see this famous detector what it has in its belly.
  5. Hi, A distant acquaintance offers me a CTX 3030 for the price of a Nox 800. Having a Nox 800, I wanted to know if the CTX3030 might be of interest to me. I only practice in lands, woods, fields etc (never beach), I don't need its GPS function. In France, it is complicated to get feedback from this detector outside the beach. In short, is the CTX3030 better than the Nox800? Aside from its lower recovery speed. Should we wait for future releases of Minelab devices in 2022? Thanks.
  6. Hi, I saw a slight change (or simple error in the instructions?) Between the Deus 1 and the Deus 2. The aluminum and the little gold are no longer in the same place on the ID. Multi effect?
  7. Hi, Is there a modification to have on the TDI Beach Hunter the same "Target Conductivity" switch as on the TDI Pro / TDI SL ? Ie all sounds, or just "High Conductor" or just "Low Conductor"? I had a TDI SL and I might buy a used TDI Beach. Thanks.
  8. I like wired coils too !! It is really a pleasure to read the discussions, the opinions on the Deus I & II, the performances of the Equinox vs Deus on the forum because in France (I am French) as soon as you have doubts or opinions on the French forums on the Deus I & II it is limit to end on a "flaming pyre", we are a heretic ...
  9. I don’t think them to release a machine to compete with Vanquish, Apex etc I also don’t see them release a detector under 1000 € like the Equinox so they remain in the price range of the CTx3030 to compete (~1500€). If their SMF does not do as well as a CTx3030 + Equinox in terms of performance, it will be hard ... Even if they have the advantage of wireless and weight. I'm really looking forward to testing this detector.
  10. The Sovereign is not perfect, heavy, its recovery speed is long, poor reactivity. My Sovereign is mounted on the excellent Deus shaft. I like to use multiple detector that changes. Each detector has one or more strong points, the Deus is its reactivity, shaft, weight, wireless etc… But I find it below in discrimination/notch than Minelab detectors.
  11. With my Sovereign, I manage to « notch » the aluminium zip pers, aluminium balls, some pieces of alu without losing most of gold rings, gold coins. With the Deus is impossible.
  12. The truffle isn’t an exact science, many people have planted without having much. « Mother nature » still have the uppercut hand… It’s more of a pleasure for me than a search for money. I have a « real » job everything day next door.
  13. Hi Old Line Paul, Why in Maryland, is detection complicated there ?
