Default Waterproof connectors to switch out Excalibur coils?




I noticed someone selling a waterproof connector on ebay aimed at Excalibur users who might want to switch out their coils.

I like this idea, as I picture myself trying a bigger coiltek coil on my Excal someday, and then having the ability to go back to the stock coil when my arm gets tired...

I am usually shoulder deep in the water at most.

Are any of you guys using a connector like this to switch out your coils? Does it work?

Default I have it on one of my Excals

But I like the SEF 12 x 15 so much I don't change it out.

I kind of don't have to change it out though, I got a problem with Excals.

Some one in VB, Thomas told me those worked fine inline. I'll check with him again to see how they are holding up...

I've been using the connector for this year after the original Coiltek connectors gave up the ghost. For $7 + 4 for S/H (going to $14 soon) I got one connector for the control box end and 3 connectors for 3 different coils...

Default That box

has a Excal II in it that I won in a Kellyco raffle at the Treasure Hunter's picnic in Wabasso, Fl in April 2016.

For some reason I never have taken it out of the box.

I got the box autographed by the Capitana salvage crew that recovered all those gold coins in July 2015. I witnessed that event---surreal day.
