  1. Let me know when you have a chance to try out the headphones. I am considering either a pair of Aqua-Tek headphones or the same ones you got from the Ukraine...
  2. Kent, Did you ever get the headphones from Anton for your Excalibur? I am considering the same thing and I was curious if you went through with it. If not, did you go with different headphones for your Excalibur at all?
  3. I have a carbon fiber Anderson Over/Under shaft for my Excalibur 2. I typically hunt in water depths varying from knee deep all the way out to chest deep. I am noticing some slight falsing as I am transitioning from the shallower to the deeper waters and vice versa, and I can only attribute it to the water that is retained in the shaft sloshing around next to the detector. When I leave the water and point my coil to the sky, a large amount of water drains out from the back of the over/under shafts. I remember on one of the shafts I had for my Equinox, there was a drainage hole in the lower shaft. My current Anderson lower shaft does not have a drainage hole, and I was wondering if this would help prevent the slight falsing I am getting transitioning from different depths? I guess its easy enough to try and plug if it doesn't work, but I was curious if any other Excalibur users have noticed this?
  4. Same question for me but not so much of a restriction on budget... I was looking at these two kits: Minelab Pro-Gold Premium Panning Kit XP Gold Pan Premium Kit Steve H. - were you involved with creating the Minelab kit?
  5. Joe, The Detector Repair Center offers an Excalibur end cap that allows you to use CTX 3030 headphones. I am thinking about having this done, which would open up more headphone options for me. Do you know if direct wiring the headphones vs using an endcap adapter affects sound quality / performance / volume in any way? I believe the service center offers both options, just not sure if there is any performance difference?
  6. Joe, what headphones would you recommend for an Excalibur 2? I taped up the vent holes on the stock headphones, which helped out quite a bit. But, if switching them out makes that big of a difference, I want to get that done asap!
  7. Thanks for the feedback everyone! After doing more google searching, it might be Limonite. Still a neat / unexpected find at a Fort Lauderdale beach! Need to come up with another way to get my darn Equinox 800 now..
  8. I posted this over in the meteorite forum, but after some research I wonder if the mystery rock I found is Limonite. I found this at a Fort Lauderdale beach yesterday, pretty far away from the water at a volleyball court. It was about 10 inches down in the sand, and my PI metal detector locked on to this pretty easily. I have a Pro Find 35 pinpointer, which makes a different sound for ferrous items, which it does on this rock. It weighs about 76 grams, seems unusually heavy for its size, and a magnet does stick to it. Before I send it anywhere for analysis, I was wondering if anyone here might have any thoughts? Possible Limonite?
  9. I found this strange rock at a South Florida beach today. This was pretty far away from the water, at a volleyball court. It was fairly deep in the sand, I would say a good 10 inches. It feels abnormally heavy, weighs 76 grams and a magnet does stick to it. Both my PI metal detector and Pro Find 35 pin pointer go nuts near this thing- the Pro Find 35 makes the ferrous metal sound. Does this look like something I should send out for verification?? With luck, this could help fund my future purchase of an Equinox 800... ?
