    Minelab CTX3030 is the most versatile detector on the market.
    I have used this detector in the water and on the beaches as well as coin and relic hunting there is not a better detector that is able to discriminate targets prior to digging them. Tone, visual target information and the ability to customize these tools is what sets this detector apart from the others on the market. Also being able to switch could on the fly depending on what situation you are in is key.
    Beach, coin hunting or relics is does it all! I have purchased allow of my minelab machines from Robs Detectors due to his personal and professional service!

    Probably the best professional detector out there if you want full customization this is it. Warning if you are a Mac user you can’t use the program from the computer only a PC can be used. I have a Mac so I did all my programming in machine which takes longer but still doable. If you get this get Andy’s book it’s a game changer!
