Default Re: best u/w metal detector?

I did contact KellyCo, described what conditions I want to detect in ( 95% of it 20 ft. under seawater, 5% on the beach) and surprisingly, they did not recommend their most expensive detectors,which I guess would be the JW Fishers. They recommended a Minelab Excaliber 1000. Same one you guys are recommending, for the most part. They are including about $ 400 in options with them right now, at the best price I have been able to find on the Internet so far, which includes shipping to the continental US. Just FWIW.

I am going to buy one. I just need to figure out the best way to get it down here without it costing me the other arm and leg.
