Minelab Excalibur II Metal Detector with 10" Search Coil
- Product Review (submitted on April 20, 2008):
I have been detecting for 16 years now. I don't know what drew me to metal detecting other than seeing a detector displayed in a store near my home. I lived near the river at the time and thought that would be a fun thing to do. While I was in the store, I met a man who said there is a detecting club in your hometown and I decided to join the club. I met a guy there that had an Excalibur and he said it was a great machine and let me try his at the beaches here in N.J. I liked the way it performed and how it went very deep for targets. It sure out-shined all the detectors that I have ever used and so far have ever used. I like the way the tones are different to let you know what you are digging before you even dig the target. The main thing that I like about this machine is its ease of use.
I also love the way it glides through the water during my surf hunts. I have found many coins from shipwrecked coins to the common clad coins, and have made some exceptional jewelry finds. This machine has paid for itself over and over again. I actually own 3 Excaliburs. I have one as a back up and my son uses the other one. So you can see that we are a Minelab family! In my opinion, their technology is by far the best out there. This detector is the only one that I would recommend for beach and surf hunting. So grab yourself a Minelab Excalibur and get out there and find your own treasures!
