My Troy Shadow X5, because its my deepest machine

and my Diablo Umax. Both are great detectors

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

Must admit i bought a brand new Troy X5 here in the UK 10 years ago,used it for 12 months with many hours on the clock and its the only detector that i have ever hated and sold,it just loved iron,had the stock coil and also the 10x6 coil and it was not a cheap machine,build quality was possibly the best in the business,but it just loved iron,countless times being in contact with Troy Galloway and sold it about 18 months later,because of all the hype at the time that they had been the greatest detector since sliced bread was invented i sold it at basically what i paid for it which was a massive relief.Of course this is only my experiance with a brand new Troy X5,they stopped selling them in the UK a little while later and then the company stopped production full stop.



Deus and Nexus MP main everyday detectors

Displays on a Detector are really the equivalent of relying on sub-titles,give me a Analogue machine anyday.

Some of my site specific use machines.
TDI Pro 20'' Mono
Nexus SE dual 9'' coil
Nexus MP 14x13
Fisher TW-5 twin box
Crossbow PI 14x9 Mono
Mirage PI 5'' Mono

T2 SEF15x12
IDX Pro 15'' Concentric
Arado120b
B1 and B3
Trident11 Extreme NEL Snake


Mainly hunt deep ploughed and pasture sites,trashy roman/saxon and celtic permissions.

Like Barber Bill I have a Vaquero, an Eldorado, and a DeLeon. I think I would keep the DeLeon But I would be hard pressed to decide between the other two. More than likely keep the Eldorado.

Eldorado! (one of my favorites) Vaqueros are great too, but I prefer the toggle to all metal and the ED180 of Eldo; it's super sensitive to the tiniest bits with minimal disc.
I wouldn't part with a clean Eldorado... :bouncy:

Tejon with Grey Ghost headphones for land and a Tigershark for water. Most of my water hunting is done in fresh water, I went with the 8" coil on the Tigershark because its easier to handle in river currents

Isn't the Eldorado same as the Vaq with the exception of the tone on it? Now don't get me wrong, if I found a clean and mint Eldorado, I would buy it to add to the aresnal!



What I have in the aresnal:

Tesoro Cibola w/ 9x8 coil
Tesoro Vaquero w/ 9x8 coil
Tesoro Silver Sabre Umax w/ 8" coil
Tesoro Silver Umax w/ 8" coil
Tesoro Compadre w/ 8" coil
Tesoro Compadre w/ 5.75" coil
Tesoro Bandido II Umax w/ 8" coil
Tesoro Deleon w/ 9x8 coil
Tesoro Cortes w/9x8 coil
Tesoro Outlaw w/ 3 coil pack

Future Additions:

Older Tesoro Models (If I can find them in MINT condition)

What can I say, I am a die hard Tesoro man :)

Not quite...

Eldorado has the full "ED180" disc range, toggle for all-metal / disc / battery check, a lower 10kHz transmit frequency, no pinpoint button and a nicer audio tone. It's not the same machine as the Vaquero.
No Tesoro collection is complete without one (or two..). :crazy:

I'm hanging on to both of mine.
They do show up on ebay every couple of months though, and often sell for about what a used Cibola does. Worth picking up a nice one if the price is right.
