Well, "this grumpy old man" was his grumpyist back when ...

He had a T.D. tuned CZ3D! I bought a new, fresh from stock CZ3D when a I had been enjoying other detector models as well as my CZ5. That was my favorite CZ model and I had a few of them after a CZ6a I started with about '96.

Two particular old parks in Portland OR that had been 'V' and Buffalo Nickel producers for a few years and I thought I'd give the CZ3D a crack on a Nickel Hunting adventure for a couple of days.

The results and frustrations left me a Super Grumpy Fisher user. The first CZ3D and then trying a Tom D. Tuned CZ3D were absolutely unimpressive. I marked questionable hits and rechecked with other models, then used the other models to locate possible Nickel coins and used the CZ3D to double-check those targets.

For ME, the CZ3D in more mineralized to very mellow Park dirt, factory made or Tom Tuned, was simply in the garbage category! Never matched my CZ5 in side-by-side comparisons on naturally located targets. Parted with them soon after.

But, we are all different and have our likes and dislikes based on what has or hasn't impressed us afield. So if they are still making it, which surprises me, then I am glad someone is happy.
