An educational day out with the CTX 3030 and its cousins

August 31, 2012 10:45am

Having a day off work simply meant a trip would be planned to detect somewhere. The question was where exactly? With harvest in full swing ploughed fields or even rolled ones are a scarce commodity as the farmers struggle to get the crop in before the next rain storm. For readers not living in Britain we have just had our wettest "Summer" since records began and that was I believe in the 18th Century. Anyway we found a suitable field, it was a field we knew well.

Understanding the Sovereign GT - basic to advanced settings - Part 2

August 29, 2012 11:15am

Most people metal detect at the same sites on a regular basis, for a beach hunter that means discovering which level of manual sensitivity suits certain sites and adjusting the sensitivity control accordingly. Do not worry about setting the sensitivity too high, I assure you that your Sovereign GT will tell you if you have the sensitivity set too high. When making the transition from the beginner Sovereign user phase to the advanced Sovereign user the best manual sensitivity level is the one that produces the least amount of false signals.

The West Australian Adventure Video Blog - Part 6

August 17, 2012 11:44am

Cement as the name suggests is very hard, requiring special methods and tools. In this blog post I wish to discuss the way I set up our GPX 5000s to get maximum performance in the location seen in the video.

Firstly the area was well known to me and as a consequence has seen a lot of attention with all previous models of Minelab detectors dating back to the SD 2000; as such it’s a very good litmus test to the effectiveness of any new Minelab design!

CTX 3030 or Excalibur II – Which is best for me?

August 07, 2012 10:42am

"Should I sell my Excalibur II and buy a CTX 3030?" A friend had just called me and was asking me this question. For me the answer is easy....I keep my Excalibur and add the CTX 3030 to take advantage of its added features and benefits. I have a strong affinity for the Excalibur. I know the detector very well and when I turn it on it is like wearing an old pair of comfortable shoes and I know I am very good with it. But back to the conversation... I answered, "it depends what you want out of the detector?" I then asked "What were the three most important things for him to get out of the detector?" His answers were... 1.Waterproof, 2.Durable 3.Critically important to discriminate out selected coins.
