Got it put together today, downloaded the manual and read up a little. Now if I want to try it out in the yard I will have to brave 45 degree weather tomorrow. Heading for FLA in April and I am hoping it starts paying for itself (could be in trouble if it doesn't). I can hunt a lot longer with this lightweight detector in the shallows than I can with the Excal. Doing a few day at the treasure coast this year before heading to Clearwater.
