The Excalibur II Has Me Hooked!

I bought my Excalibur II in February 2009. This is my first water machine and my first year water hunting, so yes I am a rookie at it, but I am hooked.

I went to the beach with my wife and kids today and right away I started digging coins right off the bat with the Excalibur II. After scooping up a dollar or so I moved to deeper water. I got a nice tone and dug it. It was my first gold ring, I was pumped and I called my wife over to show it to her, she was pumped too. I asked her to hold on to it.

About a half hour later I found the sterling silver boy scout ring and some more coins. Then when I was getting ready to call it a day I found the tiger eye ring and two feet from that, the 14kt GP leaf ring. It was a great day: four rings, over three dollars in change and a 1919 wheat penny.

I know I didn't go wrong with this machine. Thank you Minelab.
