Excalibur 11

Firstly, miners den are the best to deal with! Speedy shipping and courteous follow up emails. Secondly, the excalibur is awesome! In the ocean and on the beach! Found the standard ring pulls, bottle caps and a dozen tent pegs. But found my riches as well! $5 lol. A real pleasure to use. Thank you miners den.

Excalibur II number 3

I bought my fourth Minelab Excalibur and the thIrd Excalibur II a week ago. It was great to see a new battery charger with LED charge indicator lights. This is a great improvement on the original chargers. Field testing was productive and the machine performs as well as the other two. I’m too tall for the standard shafts unfortunately but that problem is not a big deal. I have used the Excalibur for about 17 years and it’s by far the best amphibious detector I have used. I’m very often searching on SCUBA in zero visibility and I have used the Excalibur II up to 31m underwater without a problem. The controls remain unchanged from the original Excalibur 1000 to the current Excalibur II. I highly recommend the Minelab Excalibur II if you are serious about detecting under water and/or in the surf.
