Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector with 10" Search Coil
- Product Review (submitted on January 27, 2017):
- I used the Excalibur I to death. The II is just as good. It is a great machine, perfect for the beach and shallow water hunting I do. I do, however, have two complaints. First is the knobs. I was hoping Minelab would rework these in this version. They did not and the knobs are an issue. They stick out and can break easily. They also loosen up and fall off so make sure you keep them tight. The second complaint is trying to get into the battery case. After my battery went dead on my Excalibur I, I replaced it with a setup that allowed you to use replaceable AA batteries. The problem is trying to get the lid off the battery case to change batteries as needed. With all that said it is a great working machine and should give you many many years of fun hunting.
