Good news! Just got back in the mail the compadre w/8" that had the sensitivity way out of whack. It came back promptly and big thanks to Tesoro! Rusty even worked on it :)

Gonna ship the Deleon, Cortes, and Outlaw here in a couple minutes to see if there really is a problem.



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
Tesoro Tejon w/ 9x8 coil

Future Additions:

???????

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

You must have gotten some preowned detectors. Your posts indicate that.

That's what I was thinking, but the detectors and the coils are flawless, not to mention that they were still factory sealed with the Tesoro tape. The Compadre w/5.75" and the Silver Umax didn't have any problems at all....

That happens... I've seen several of the same used Tesoros show up on ebay again a month or two later. In fact, I've sent two back to their sellers after they sold them as "good working"... The Amigo II was DOA, and a Cortes needed a new GB pot and looked like it had been sprayed with DEET (and it didn't show in the somewhat blurry pics...).

There's an $800 Golden on ebay right now that's been sold at least once. Whatever you do, don't but that one...



A wheatie a day keeps boredom at bay.

The Cortes had its battery pack still sealed. Now the DeLeon was an in store demo, so I'm sending it in to make sure it's good to go. The Outlaw just had a problem with its 12x10 coil (part of the three coil pack). When I looked at the detectors , there wasn't even a scratch on the bottom of the coils at all. I assure you, they aren't pre owned! Also, all three detectors still have their warranty cards that are being sent in as well.
