That is sad. I still use my Tesoro 'Diablo' and is great to use, very light, sensitive, and easy to handle in tight spots. Great unit to teach basic skills to beginners. Also a good back up for the 4500.
I was lucky to win mine through "Gold, gem and Treasure" magazine back in the 1980's
Cheers

It certainly was, picked it up from David Bishop detectors in Wodonga. David took some photos for the publicity, gave me some directions for areas around Rushworth and detecting was never so easy. Especially after swinging a Goldseeker15000 all day. Sold the 15000 and the Diablo became attached to my right arm.
The ten inch elliptical is good for treasure hunting,,,,, it's the 7 inch that is the killer on small stuff and it is waterproof:the coil only.
I still love my 4500 though! But it is nice to have a good spare detector in the boot all the time,,just in case!
Cheers

David Bishop was one of the nicest guys in the industry. Sad I never got to meet him.
