Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector with 10" Search Coil
- Product Review (submitted on November 25, 2017):
- I bought my first Excalibur in 1994 and I still use it today along with 4 others I own. I am now retired and am on the beaches of Florida detecting with my Excaliburs four to five days week. So far this month (NOV 2017) I have found 580 coins, a working watch, small gold ring, matching his and hers tungsten wedding bands, costume ring, 9 fishing sinkers, 3 sunglasses, 6 keys, 9 fishing sinkers, 4 earrings, and assorted odds and ends. The Excalibur is a rugged well built detector with a couple of minor faults that can be corrected by the owner of the machine. I have used my detectors on the beaches of Long Island NY, Myrtle Beach SC, Galveston TX, Venice and Santa Monica beach CA and a dozen Florida beaches. Also in Mexico, Dominican Republic, St Lucia, and Jamaica. Every beach where I used the Excalibur it worked great. My monthly finds are equal too or better than finds members of my club display at our monthly meetings using more expensive detectors. With 25 years of using the Excalibur I have to look back at the great finds I have made on the beaches that are locked up in a safe deposit box to realize that this is the greatest hobby one could have. As a note my wife is very happy wearing many of the finds I have brought home. I gave up fishing to use my Excaliburs and my wife doesn't yell at me any more for storing worms in the refrigerator and having bloody bait and fish smelling clothes in the hamper.
