Default Excalibur II 800 ???

Did the excal ii 800 get discontinued? My brother was looking to get one and all we can find info on and for sale are the Excalibur II 1000's?

Minelab hasn't replied to my questions, and I don't see it on their discontinued lists.

Only under weight is the only place that it mentions 8".
No authorized dealers have the Excal II 800 listed.

Those same specs state under the Coil

Coil (Standard) 10" Round Double-D Hardwired Coil.

800 was discontinued about a year ago.

What a shame. Could not find any info as to why it went away. Were there issues or just lack of sales?
