Tough question for multiple machine owners.

Pretty hard to decide. But if you had to limit yourself to only 2 beep and dig machine's, which two ?
Another way to ask this question. If you were limited to only 2,which ones?

Myself I would keep my Pulse Induction Infinium. Second I would trade up my Compardre for a Golden uMax.

Deus and Nexus MP,the Deus because it does most of my everyday detecting trashy sites and the Nexus MP because of the amazing depth and can handle extreme mineral ground conditions as well :thumbup:



Deus and Nexus MP-Beauty and the Beast.

Main machines that i use for specific site use T2-DFX-IDX Pro-Nexus SE-TDI Pro Pulse-Mirage Pulse-Crossbow Pulse-Fisher TW-5 twin box-Arado 120b-Trident11 Extreme-and a few others.

Tough question as I'm limited to Tesoros, and they're all pretty good.

Of the current models.. probably Outlaw and... maybe Tejon.
It is a tough descision, as I also like ALL of their other current land units that I've tried. The only current Tesoro land units I haven't tried, are the Silver and Lobo ST.

Of all the Tesoros I've tried though, including the older units.. My picks are Bandido II μMAX and... Outlaw....or maybe Eldorado..or..

Easy one. For Tesoro's only (since that is only what I own), a Bandido II Umax and a Tejon. Also as a back up to the back up, a Compadre. We at least have to have a back up to the back up! Haha

More coils than any sane person would need.

Machines are not in order of preference !! I can't read big blocks of writing , so the enter key is a good tool.

I share my experience of my detecting both the good and not so good both on and off the field, not here to keep everyone happy, just share my experience! if it helps someone that's great, if not that's great too--- so take what you need and leave the rest !

Well out of my tesoros,
Bandido II micromax and compadre.

It's odd but yes I'd keep my compadre over my others.

I've got enough detectors to make this a hard choice, but here goes. Either my Vaquero or my Eldorado umax and my Deleon.. Probably the Eldo and the Deleon because of coil compatibility.

I am looking at a DeLeon. Would you tell me why you like yours so much, apart from coil compatibility with your Eldorado?

I like the DeLeon for a number of reasons. The display is larger than the Cortes, the tid is as accurate as any other I've played with, the light weight makes it pleasant to swing, the depth is surprising and the battery life is generous. The most common negatives I've seen are the facts that it is a factory preset ground balance.and doesn't offer quite as much into as the Cortes, ie copper pennies, silver, + clad coins all register a solid "95" so you may be retrieving a penny, dime, quarter or hopefully a half or dollar for that indication. However, it displays nickels and zinc pennies separately and well. Also, I generally have no problem in the parks, sport fields, etc. that I usually hunt as the soil is mild enough that the ground balance is no problem, but if I need to, I can always grab the Eldorado. I've done pretty well with the DeLeon mainly because it's so much fun to swing so I use it alot. For those that have one, I'll pass on two tips. One - you may find you do better with the sensitivity set in the 7-8 range and if you get repeatable bouncing indications that favor different coin values that don't settle down to one value, be sure to dig. More often than you would expect it will turn out that the coil was swinging over a coin spill.

Ahhh, those Troys must be something. Can't recall reading much anything but praise for them.
