Two Scoops Down

The Excalibur II continues to impress me. I was working a sanded in beach for a few hours and scooped up a nice 14k ring with three real diamonds, I also found a silver ring my daughter claimed right away. The best part is that this beach is hit hard by other detectors and the Excalibur II found these easily at 2 large scoops down.

Two Platinum Rings in Two Days

I have been a casual detectorist for about 10 years now, and just purchased a Minelab Excalibur II. This was the best decision I have made in a long time! I took a trip to the east coast last week, and searched at low tide 2 days for several hours. I was amazed at the debth the detector could reach, I found many targets around 16 inches or below.

Better to Give Than Receive

This past Memorial weekend I was up in Northern Michigan at my buddys cabin and he took me to a little beach around 7 miles away to do some water hunting with my Excailbur II. This is a man made lake and I quickly learned it wasn't going to be easy to hunt because of the clay bottom. Bringing up every scoop was a workout in itself, and then trying to get it to sift was another. The water was still only around 65 degrees so I was wearing my waders.

Excalibur II... Never Ceases to Amaze

Because I hadn’t been out detecting for a few weeks I headed for our local beach. After 45 minutes detecting I got a strong signal on my Excalibur II. To my amazement I had found a really nice diamond ring! At the end of the night I had three diamond rings and a very large 18ct gold belcher chain and around £18 in change.

The Only Water Machine

A few months ago I had to send my Excalibur II in for warranty work, and it about broke my heart. Then I find out it was in the mist of the Minelab move and it would take longer than I expected to get it back. I broke down and purchased another Excalibur II so I wouldn't loose any precious hunting time even though I own another brand water machine, I just can't go without the Excalibur II.

A Good Start to a Great Year

I recently purchased an Excalibur II and wanted to share with you a couple of my first finds with it. This is my third water machine and by far the best. I have only had the Excalibur II for a few weeks and have had some incredible luck. I got down to the beach after the holiday weekend and got not one but two 14k rings. The depth of this machine truly amazes me, I really like the fact that the Excalibur II ignores iron but will sound off on the good stuff right next to it. I think its going to be a great year!

Gold Magnets

All rings are gold or platinum found at the beach this winter using my Excalibur II or Sovereign GT. Both detectors have been gold magnets for me.

In Minelab I Trust

I would like to thank Minelab for building a great metal detector. I have used White's for many years and your Excalibur II has surpassed all my expectations. It has great sensitivity and penetration enabling me to find what other detectors miss.
