    minelab question

    I'm looking to purchase an underwater detector, and an leaning toward the minelab excal. 800/1000.
    question is this; does the minelab disc. out all iron? because there are times you want to find iron objects, such as on shipwreck site,,etc. any help would be appreciated.
    thanks capt_t

    You can set the disc any way you want. If it's some iron you want you can get it. Give me a call and we can discuss it further.

    By turning the Pinpoint mode on, you are in all metal. The 800 coil is more sensitive to tiny gold, but I have no trouble finding earring studs with the Excal 1000. I guess it depends on your sweep speed and sensitivity. The Excal is tops in my opinion.

    sandman,
    thanks for the info, most of the use will be underwater, what would you recommend 800 or 1000?
