Minelab CTX 3030 Standard Metal Detector with Wireless Headphones

Minelab CTX 3030 Standard Metal Detector with Wireless Headphones

Product Review (submitted on August 20, 2019):
The CTX-3030 was my first detector that I’ve had now for over 5 years. I’m the technical/engineering sort, so I wanted to start out with a good detector that I could “grow into”. Also I wanted something waterproof enough to detect at the beach without the fear of dropping and frying the electronics. After talking extensively with a Kellyco Rep., I decided on the CTX 3030. The more I used it, the better I felt about spending the $$ for a good machine! I have used it extensively in the surf where it received a pounding, salty/corrosive environment, and sand. Not the best “equipment friendly” location! It has operated magnificently! I clean my machine thoroughly after every outing, and always check the battery’s o-ring. I highly recommend reading up on essential tips on maintenance and prevention (especially for use at the beach) you can pick up on “Find’s Treasure Forums, and Andy Sabisch’s CTX 3030 books. Overall the machine was easy to use starting with the basics, then learning and exploring the functionality more and more as you gain experience. I’m still learning things after 5 years and over 500 hours of using it. Minelab has an excellent customer service dept. even after the machine is long out of warranty (mine had a button problem after 5 years that I’m sure was pressed thousands of times) they performed an effective repair and returned the machine back to me for under $100. Due to the cost, I would advise watching the Kellyco’s website for any specials. When I bought mine, it came with the 17" coil, 2 headsets, and other stuff. I recommend getting the 6" and 17" coils, and the Minelab ProSwing 45 (if you are going to be out for hours, or using the 17" coil). I’m very happy with my machine and hope to be using it many years to come!
