Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector with 10" Search Coil
- Product Review (submitted on July 9, 2012):
I bought my first metal detector from Kellyco in 1979. It was a Bounty Hunter. I used this detector for many years. I went on a treasure hunt back in the 70's with Kellyco to the Dade massacre. I found a lot of musket balls on that trip. Since then I have bought a Garrett Master Hunter treasure talk. I have found numerous coins and relics, and recently I bought a Minelab Excalibur II. This is by far the best detector I have ever owned. I thought it would be fun to start detecting the beach. Most of the people I see detecting are on dry sand. Well let me tell you the Minelab Excalibur is the ultimate metal detector, since I can now detect in the water. I have found jewelry and relics in the surf. The surf has covered me and my detector.
The detector works excellent, never had any problems. I have a four year warranty on the unit but I don't think I will ever use it. After detecting for the day I brought it home and hosed it off with the garden hose. By far the Minelab Excalibur is the best detector for the money. I really did not want to spend the money for the detector but you get what you pay for. I am extremely pleased with my purchase. I would not buy from any other dealer, because simply put: Kellyco is the best. I have always bought my supplies from Kellyco; they always have everything you need. I had an indicator cap for a knob fall off of my detector in the surf. I went to Kellyco but they did not have anymore in stock. The sales rep took one off the display model and gave it to me, did not cost me a dime.
