Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector with 10" Search Coil
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
I started metal detecting in Sept, 2003. My favorite type of metal detecting is coin & jewelry hunting, but I do relic hunting also. It didn't take me long to figure out that you have to dig everything if you want to find the gold jewelry. I was using dual frequency low end machine at the time & needed a better machine to help me weed out the bad signals. I had heard about the Minelab series of detectors & had a friend that was using one. I knew that this machine with 28 frequencies had to be better than my dual frequency machine. I finally bought the Explorer II from Kellyco.
It took awhile to get used to all those frequencies but the results are fantastic. I've found over 126 rings, many of them gold with diamonds, 3 platinum rings & all sorts of silver rings. I've also found an assortment of other jewelry, (earrings, bracelets, necklaces, etc). I've found over 15,000 coins for a value of $1400. Some of these coins were silver, wheat pennies, Indian heads, V nickles, etc. I've also found a few relics: Civil war buttons, bullets, 1 US box plate, etc.
The discrimination abilities & 28 frequencies of this machine are AWESOME. I am sooo glad I finally decided to upgrade to this machine. It has been very durable, too. My other machine lacked good construction & I had to to repair it several times. My Minelab Explorer II goes through the same paces & has never been repaired for anything. I was sooo fascinated by the durability & discrimination ability of the Minelab Metal Detectors that I finally bought an Excalibur for beach hunting. Again, I found this detector to be an AWESOME addition to my arsenal of detectors. I have since purchased a series of different coils for my Explorer II & the results of having the BEST detector on the market & all the accessories to go with it have allowed me to be the best that I can be in the field of metal detecting.
Thank you, Kellyco, for offering sooo many choices at the best prices available.
