This powerful and versatile underwater metal detector was introduced in 2007 and is suitable for deep diving and wreck exploration. To be frank, it has been in high demand since its publication, but it is also considered outdated at the time of writing. However, since the underwater detecting niche is so small and the options are so few, not many other machines can be called competition. As a result, Excalibur II remains popular and performs admirably even in extreme environments such as 200 feet underneath the ocean.
The Excalibur II metal detector was created by Minelab to be a simple but efficient way of searching for relics. It is operated by a Ni – mh battery pack that should last between 14 and 20 hours.
The search coil is a 10″ DD Submersible Coil, but users can also buy an 8″ search coil if required. For shoreline and surf wading conditions, a skid plate and a side mount shaft are also included.
Additionally, Minelab was gracious enough to include some incredible accessories with their order, including submersible headphones, charging adapters, wall chargers, a coil cover, a short shaft diving rod, and the Minelab Pro Find 35 Pin Pointer.
