    Wish I would have seen that video along time ago. All my knobs fell off about 2 years ago anyway. Had to epoxy coil back in the shaft when it fell off one day. But I love that machine im not complaining. Its just a tool to me. Like a hammer there are many different brands but they all do the same thing, some a little better than others. My excaliber is my favorite hammer. !!!

    Excalibur 2 Metal Detector Sounds and Settings

    I'm just charging up my new Excalibur now. I look forward to trying out these settings. Great video :-) I'm really a newbie with metal detecting etc. so this has helped a lot.

    I have been using the CTX for a few years and love it but have considered the Excal. Thanks for the video. It's a great help deciding.

    Drafter, you've been around 9 months with your 5th post! I'm responding to your post mostly because I began my 40 year career in engineering as a draftsman, and very obviously took your username as reference...

    I'd advise you to continue considering the Excal. It is a proven force in the water, and I love my CTX. Watch the for sale forums here and you'll see them surface rather often for affordable bucks.

    And, I'll throw this in. Get involved here and you'll find friends. You'll also learn more than you can imagine through personal interactions.

    Keep the faith! There's wonders to be found.

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Been a while since I've posted on this thread but now that Ive used the Excal for nearly 2 yrs I have to say it is my preferred machine. I like it even over my CTX. In the water it is a MUST! I use a PP toggle switch and can swap out coils with a quick disconnect. It's a simple machine. Hunt in PP. When you hear a target, switch to discrim. If it hits both ways DIG IT! If you hear faints in PP and nothing in Discrim. Dig a hole or two. Then check again. MANY times an initial tone will change. Also if you're digging a target and suddenly its "GONE" dig another time or two. It most likely will magically re-appear.
    Air testing is VERY different than digging REAL targets that are 10+ inches down. Soil conditions, water action, direction of swing, speed of swing, and what you ate for breakfast can all play in how it "reads" to you. For the most part I've given up on trying to decipher tones other than obvious foil. To me aluminum and pennies and rings all sound the same. I run full volume, full sens, discrim 1 and threshold like an upset mosquito in my ear and hunt in PP and switch on a target to verify. Hope this helps.

    Keep if hunting in PP try turning threshold to where if you turn it any lower threshold with disappear, I have found a free many hours of testing by doing this I can hear even deeper targets that I can't hear if you turn the threshold up like the tiny mosquitoes your ear.

    I have quarter buried at 18" in my test garden that I can hear with 10" coil this way and if I turn up threshold to like a mosquito I can't hear it, threshold drowns it out.

    Good info for the newby. But they need to know in the field it is going to be a learning process. Until you hear these sounds several times in and out of the water you will not remember the tones. Best thing is, if your new dig everything! I repeat dig everything! If I'm having a slow day I will confirm what I think the tone is by digging it anyway. Don't know if you don't dig. Happy hunting everyone.

    I hunt in PP and then check to see if it is iron, PP is much deeper than disc.
