Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector with 10" Search Coil

Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector with 10" Search Coil

Product Review (submitted on March 18, 2008):
About one year ago, I purchased the Minelab Excalibur 1000 from Kellyco. I detected the local swimming areas near my home. I did not keep track of the coins found, however at the end of the summer I sent most, but not all the gold and silver jewelry I found to one of the refineries. In turn, I received a check for just fewer than eighteen hundred dollars! This easily paid for the machine. I was sharing these swimming areas with three other detectorists and out performed all of them. Two were using Fishers and one was using a White's. One of the folks using a Fisher scoffed at my purchase at first, however he ordered an Excalibur within three weeks of seeing my results. The clincher for him was a small gold stud earring I found in about six or seven inches of sand and clay. He asked to see how his machine read the earring. The results were that he could not get a reading at all from the earring.

Also, the other detectorists were always digging up hair clips and bottle caps that I passed right over and did not dig because I knew what they were. I have been detecting for forty two years and this was my first underwater machine. I feel I am still learning the Excalibur and yet I was able to out perform all of the other detectorists. I am planning a trip this summer to Costa Rica and cannot wait to see what those wonderful beaches provide. I will have ten days to two weeks to find out. Thank you!
