Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector
The World's Best Beach, Wading, and Diving Metal Detector
with the larger 10" New Round Double D Coil
Search trash areas with 8" New Round Double D Coil
The Excalibur II series is fully submersible to depths of 200 feet, and it features a staggering 17 frequencies to find more coins, rings, and treasures buried deeper than ever!
Bill Myers has been metal detecting for 35 years. Well known as one of the most experienced beach hunters and host-instructor on a series of new DVD's on Metal Detecting Florida (or any) beaches; he says:
"If you are on an unlimited budget and want the ultimate beach water detector,the choice would be the Minelab Excalibur II. The Excalibur II is one of the most desired water-proof detecors in the market. It is water proof to a depth of 250ft and works well with dry sand, wet sand, and water. It works well in salt and fresh water as well. The Excalibur II is higly rated and preferred by many professional metal hunters. I use an Excalibur detector just about everyday and its definitely my favorite detector."
The first metal detectors were produced by manufactures to use the best frequency for detecting. These single frequency detectors were, and are, very successful! Detector manufacturers were recently able to produce dual frequency detectors to allow users to cover twice the frequency range and find more coins and treasure than they could with a single frequency detector. Since single frequency detectors are good, and dual frequency detectors are better, a detector series with a broad band spectrum of 17 frequencies most certainly offers the very best opportunities for detector users to recover far more coins, rings, jewelry, relics, and treasures.
What Is Minelab's Exclusive Iron Mask Feature?
The Iron Mask Feature is exclusive to Minelab detectors and makes signals from iron trash non-existent! Only signals from good targets are strong and clear, at depths that are almost beyond belief. Recognizing a valuable target that is near a piece of iron can be a problem for all conventional metal detectors. If the detector is set to reject the iron under a variety of mineralized ground conditions, then it is likely to reject the target also. For example: A coin buried near a nail will be passed over by many detectors. Because of its 17 frequencies, the Excalibur II is exceptional at distinguishing between nonferrous, good targets and the ferrous, iron trash. In the discrimination mode the iron mask feature allows you to locate good targets among ferrous junk.
Multiple Frequency Detectors are Simple to Use and Operate
Multiple Frequency detectors like the Excalibur II series are simple to operate - as easy, if not easier, to use than single frequency detectors. Turn it on, set the controls, and start searching for coins and treasures. The Excalibur II Metal Detectors do ALL the work! A microprocessor translates target signals and removes interference caused by ground mineralization (which ordinarily limits the depth at which targets can be found) and often results in inaccurate target identification. The remaining signal is then analyzed to determine the actual composition of the targets even if the ground is heavily mineralized. This gives the detector user the very best opportunity to recover more coins, rings, relics, treasure, etc. Why settle for coming home with 10, 20, or 30 coins when you can just as easily recover 100, 200, or 300 coins in the same amount of time!
Searching with the Excalibur II is like having 17 detectors in one control housing, transmitting over a range of 1.5 kHz to 25.5 kHz in 1.5 kHz steps. All frequencies are transmitted together at one time. Imagine being able to find gold or silver rings, necklaces, bracelets, medals and medallions, in addition to the thousands of deep coins that have eluded all single and dual frequency detectors. The Minelab Excalibur II with its Multiple Frequency technology gives you the edge to slash through difficult soils and high salt concentrations. Designed with an Iron Mask which gives you the edge for hunting in areas littered with trash and nails and still pick up gold and coin targets. Excalibur II is the first underwater detector with 17 separate frequencies to operate simultaneously and have multiple tone response to help you recover many more coins, rings, and treasures than any other similar detector! Detectors with only one or two frequencies miss a lot of great targets - leaving them for you to pick up with your Multiple Frequency Excalibur II detector. You will find MORE valuables, and find them DEEPER! At the end of the day, compared to other detectorists, you will be the one coming back with the majority of coins, rings, and jewelry!
The Excalibur II enables you to choose the types of objects which you want to find and ignore the rest (discrimination). Just set the DISC (discriminator) control to the desired position then collect the goodies and ignore the junk. This makes finding rings and coins a breeze in areas littered with ferrous metals.
Each type of object will produce a different signal tone. With a bit of practice youll know every time exactly what youve found before you dig it up. The tone for a gold coin will be distinctly different from that of a silver ring.
New Improved NiMH Rechargeable
The Excalibur II's rechargeable battery pack is in a compartment separate from the electronics. Using a state-of-the-art NiMH rechargeable battery you can hunt longer and not have to worry about a recharge memory because you can recharge at any time when needed. When the battery needs recharging, just clip the pack off the shaft and plug it straight into the charger. It's quick, simple, and best of all, you don't have to touch a single seal, so there are no worries about leaks.
Greatly Improved Slimline Excalibur II Searchcoil
All Excalibur II's feature Minelabs Improved lighter weight Slimline Series fully submersible encapsulated DD search coil. Hunt longer with less fatigue and less turbulence with using in the water because of the lower Slimline profile. Heavy-duty cabling and a new solid build for long term reliability.
it underwater, on the beach, or on land
The unique design and electronics of the Excalibur II enable you to use it just as effectively in or out of the water. Whether it's down 200 feet in the ocean, on the beach, in the park, or in a river of gold, the Excalibur II will perform superbly every time.
