Hi all,

Good luck Duck, which of your Tesoros would you say is the best all round coin detector? I'm thinking about getting one but am a bit confused with such a huge range?

thanks in advance

My mate has a Tesoro Vaquero that performs great , can  find small nuggets in mid mineralized ground & is a killer machine for coins .
There is a way to super tune this model in the manual for those who want to find stuff others detectors can't .

i agree outback the vaquero is the best coin detector by far out of the range it is a turn on and go detector and you will never dig a metal bottle cap again
the sand shark goes deep but be prepared to dig everything

Jim ' the Vaquero sells for $446 in the US but here it's $687.50 !
Tesoro dealers in the States are not allowed to sell direct to Australia yet it happens , postage cost is around $ 57AU .

the tejon i use in after the vaquero has cleaned out a place, and mainly use the tejon for relics i use the lobo for gold and relics and the cortes was an indulgence and am yet to master it

but the vaquero comes out of the car first every time when not on the goldfields
