New Machine - CTX

Postby adamBomb » Sat Jul 30, 2016 9:57 am

Just ordered a CTX + 17'' coil. It should arrive tuesday. I am excited to try it out. I have never used a FBS machine so this will be a learning experience going from a CZ21 and Excal to a machine that has a screen. I always wanted to get an etrac but just didn't want to beach hunt with a non waterproof machine because I swear I get sand everywhere :lol:

I'm also now hunting with the CTX.
Previously owned both the Excalibur II and Explorer II. Preferred the Explorer but scared of getting it wet especially in edge of surf.
Excalibur II is a great beach machine but once you hunt with a screen and multi-tones you kinda get spoiled.

I too recently bought a 17" coil but haven't had the chance to use at the beach.

Best of luck!

The 17'' coil is awesome. It took me about 15-20 hours to figure out how to pinpoint well with it but now its 1-2 scoops and I've got it. My first day out I was digging all over the place it was so bad.
