A friend of mine told me he lost two wedding bands at "Grumpys" on the Ocoee. Haven't been down there yet to see what's going on.

I've considered the CTX, but the high price, glitches I've read about on that forum, and that I already have a minelab water machine have deterred me thus far from getting one.

My water hunting buddy uses an AT pro with a small NEL coil which works pretty well for him, but it doesn't get the depth the minelab does. But at $500 or so, it does good enough--he gets his share of rings, can move it quicker in the water, and with his target ID, pretty much anything between a 45-52 on his machine is a ring.

I also have a Fisher CZ20 which does a pretty good job, which is why I will probably send the Excal in for a checkup.

Don't disparage those sunglasses. We've found some that sell for $200 and on up. Some brands command a pretty good price, and when you think about it, are worth more than the gold value of plain wedding bands.

Thanks for the kind words and advice.

I really don't know what I need, except maintenance, and checking the knob settings.

Next question, Champ--what coils are available for the Excal?
