The CTX 3030 Personal Review, by Bob McGinnis:
The design of the this machine is just plan brilliant !
A Land and Water Machine with GPS tracking so you have the best of both worlds.
By adding Ground Balance Minelab has given us even more depth over their other FBS machines.
The Target Trace feature allows visual separation of targets in the ground, right on the screen!
The CTX has excellentl balance so you can hunt all day. 
If you want the Absolute Best all around machine for Treasure, Relic or Coin Hunting this is it! No longer do you need both a land and water machine, as the CTX 3030 gives you the best of both worlds. Imagine this, It's Summer time and you are detecting a staging area where early travelers, pioneers or even Civil War Soldiers were preparing to ford a river. You've detected the area up to the back of the river. Where to go next? With the CTX 3030 you just keep going right out into the ford of the river. This opens up new areas that have never been detected before!!!
