I originally got into metal detecting because I am a coin collector. I thought "what better way to build a collection of coins than by finding them?"

I ended up choosing the Minelab Excalibur because it works equally as well totally submerged in the water as it does on land. I don't do a lot of water hunting. But I want to be prepared when the opportunity comes up to submerge oneself.

I also like the Minelab because it uses a lot more frequencies than your average detector to find targets. This detector is also one of the best at iron rejection. The controls on the dial are easy to use. Once you get used to pinpoint targets with this detector you are off and running. This detector also has very good depth. Probably more than a lot of the other detectors out on the market today.

I would certainly recommend this detector to others. While not being overly difficult for people new to detecting, it offers features and performance to satisfy the experienced hunter!

I had a couple cheapo brand detectors when I was a kid. The kind that you're lucky if you find a coin lying on the surface rather than buried in the soil. Living in the northeast part of the country, the area is rich in colonial history. This offers the detectorist willing to do their homework the opportunity to find coins and relics dating back to the birth of our country.

The Excalibur machine is a great machine. You will find lots of great things. The only cons I have about the machine are knobs , and Minelab customer service. The knobs if you are not careful will strip off and you have to replace them. As far as customer service, MineLab needs to keep up with demand. I waited about 5 months on my machine , because they were back ordered. The Excalibur is probably the best water machine out there. As soon as I got mine, I found some old silver dollars and about 5 rings. If you purchase this machine, be mindful of the delicate knobs.

I am very happy with the Minelab Excalibur II. My wife and I bought it just before going to Cozumel to metal detect in the salt water. We found the detector easy to tune and easy to use. We set the discrimination to 3. The sensitivity was set to Auto and the threshold was set so we could just hear a small hum and the volume was up on 3/4. It was easy to hear the hits. I was blessed to find silver rings, a gold bracelet, and numerous coins. My wife found it easy to use and she had some good finds as well. We went with a friend who also has the Minelab Excalibur II. He was using the same settings and found gold rings, a platinum ring, a couple religious medallions, and coins. I would highly recommend this detector for salt water detecting. Tony at Kellyco was a great help in choosing the Minelab Excalibur II and I am very pleased with him and the detector.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DETECTOR!

I just recently purchased the Excalibur II. I am stationed in Japan and I have found many items already. I found 8 rings, one 18k gold ring, 300.00 in Yen (Japanese Money) a silver necklace, and an early 1800 Japanese coin. I would recommend this detector to anyone. It is very easy to use and began finding coins instantly. I also found the slower I sweep the more it detects.

I rate it 5 stars!

Hi there, I hunt with my Minelab Excalibur 1000. I hunt on land with mine but will eventually get into underwater hunting. I like to hunt for almost anything, even if I have to dig up some rusty iron most of the times to get the odd old relic. It took me awhile to get good at using and learning how the controls perform, a little bit frustrating at first but I’m really getting the hang of it now. I really like being able to go out and metal detect anytime I want, even when it rains out with my Minelab Excalibur 1000. I love this machine. Thanks.
