    PP Mod on an Excalibur II

    Wanted to do it two years ago but life got in the way. I want to try again to get my Pin Pointing Modification on my Excalibur done.

    Does anyone know where I can get it done? KellyCo had a guy a few years back but he is no longer with us. Does anybody know if they still do Excalibur Mods?

    If not then who would you recommend?

    Thank you in advance

    Kellyco no longer has a repair center, Barry passed away, his brother Dave, my hunting partner is who was doing the mods, he is no longer with Kellyco.

    I won't name any names, there's a couple here who sometimes do mods. We'll let your post here see if you get an offer. Kellyco did mine prior to the loss of our friend who did them before he went to the great stomping grounds above.....

    Entirely new and different machine with the mods.....

    Edit: At the same time you get the mods done, switch it to a straight shaft. It'll be an all day swinger versus an elbow cranker......

    I recommend doing all the mods you have planned while the machine is apart. Headphone upgrade and a bigger coil are both things I like. Carbon fiber straight shaft is also a great upgrade IMO.

    Hard to believe I started the Pin Point modification fire 10 years ago and it is still going strong. I remember Treasure_Hunter and Empty Pockets were the first to do the coil change fittings a few years before that...And that's still the Hot ticket also...

    I stopped for it turned into a Job...rather be out in the water being a pirate..

    One thing to consider on the PP mod is, being able to hear the faint disruptions..the stock headphones for sure need replaced.

    Here is the info on the repair center in Pa... Tony E does good work also...

    Hey, good to hear from you my friend.

    I was very lucky to have the mods done several years ago, whole new machine - really really good mod, about the best choice an owner can make.

    Good luck out there in getting your mod done - the best choice in mods you can ever make

    Not familiar with the headphone upgrade . What’s the difference vs stock headphones? Bigger coil where do I get the larger coil and what are the costs. I appreciate any information you might be able to share. I had done some of the footwork On the mods 2 years ago but can’t find my notes.

    Again thank you for your help. I truly appreciate your time.

    Remote PP and headphone upgrade I would do but a larger coil is not for me. To each his own. I've had bad luck with Grey Ghost headphones.... Ed

    The headphone upgrade gives you better sound quality. I find the stock headphones a bit "tinny" sounding, like being on the end of a tin can telephone we used to make as kids. As for coils, there are several options depending on how big you want to go. I have both the 15" Coiltek WOT and the NEL 15" Attack coils, along with the stock 10" and 8". I prefer the NEL. It's actually a hair bigger than 15" and seems to be more stable and better at pin pointing the target IMO. These mods were made a few years ago, so, I can't tell you what the cost might be. I don't imagine the price of the coils have changed much, but, labor to install them might have. I think I paid around $300 for the WOT and $240 for the NEL, but, do a search to verify. If you contact Tony, I'm sure he can give you a quote.
