It is Here !!!! :-)

I was waiting for it for almost 2 weeks to arrive...
And finally it is here, the best underwater detector voted by users around the world:
Minelab Excalibur 1000

Just doing initial charge of the battery and also need to make coil stabilizer (a small plastic piece that will hold coil at the chosen angle )

I have 2 leads for lost rings at the beaches that were lost below low tide mark....
...So as soon as my sand scoop arrives- i will be on the quest for recovery of wedding rings :-)

Tomorrow Andrew and i will conduct test between His Garrett Infium and my Excalibur on target depth in a wet sand.

Stay tuned for all upcoming updates :-)

Quick Update- Got my Sand Scoop today as well! :

I want to try Bamboo handle first, if fail in strength will do Wood/Metal


  1. Hi Max,
    My name is Tibor from Hungary. My wife and I are living in North Shore too, and have a metal detector. Possibly we can share ideas and techniques, or just have a beer. :) I try to find you on facebook, but not much success.

  6. Advanced security metal detectors use low radiation x-rays for screening. The Metal Search Underwater metal detectors, coin detectors, and walk through metal detectors are other prominent types.
