Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector with 10" Search Coil
- Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2008):
I used to just search for coins at local parks. I started with a cheap detector and found very little. Then I bought an Explorer and I was hooked for life. Those hunted out parks were loaded with great finds including old coins, rings, and buttons. So one year I was going to Florida on vacation and decided since I had hunted with the Explorer the last couple years I would try the Excalibur. I was criticized for spending so much money on another detector, but 10 minutes on the beach and I found a gold bracelet, then a 14k ring an hour later. I finished the week with three gold rings, the bracelet, two silver rings and $26.00 in change.
Within a year this machine paid for itself. These are hands down the best detectors on the market. For three years, it worked flawlessly but wearing it hip mounted I did have to send it back to Minelab to get new wires put on. Their service was fast and a lot cheaper than expected. In my mind, Minelab’s products are the top of the line. I now have three Minelab detectors including the Minelab Explorer, Explorer II, and Excalibur II. My coin and jewelry collections grow every time I use them. I just wanted to say thanks to Minelab for their products and service and all the finds they brought me.
