Yeah, you would think with over three years of developing another basic detector and putting it out on the market, there would not be issues with any of them. With the initial rave about it subsiding now, guess it's not all what it is cracked out to be. Just another low cost, average performing detector. Like I said before, Tesoro does not seem to be moving forward and it's a shame. If the Mojave is the best they can come out with after all this time, it just proves that. As the saying goes, if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with BS. lol...

About 4 hung s with mine and I have none of these issues at all.
Pinpoints great, is handling my mineralized soil very well and seems to be getting deeper in my devil dirt than my Compadre but still need more time on it to be sure.
It seems a bit better at unmasking in iron than the Compadre too, maybe even my Vaq which is exactly why I got one.
At least three times I have pulled out severely masked targets in areas I and uncountable other hunters have scoured since detectors were invented using many other units.
Could just be a coincidence but on almost every hunt it is surprising me.
It might be low cost but so far it is not performing like any old average detector...to me, anyway.

F70, F2, Compadre, Mojave, Judge2 - 2017....Clad, 13 silver targets including a freaking Barber quarter, a beautiful walker and two V nickels...
Plus other cool stuff.

I watched the video and it shouldn't have missed those coins or have the lag like that. Just stick with what I have.

Yeah I've said this in another thread, but I can attribute it to newbies who never owned Tesoro and not like the "single tone" or others familiar with Tesoro but they got it to see if it's better than or on par with other models, and when they realized it wasn't or it was the same, they sold it.
Another possibility is people who buy the newest thing and this being the first Tesoro offering since 2012 caused people to buy.

Who knows really. But I like mine. So much I got a spare.

At this price point there are few detectors that can match it on recovery and disc ability.
So I can understand many buying it based on Tesoro name, but not really knowing what they are buying.
Many, like me when I started, equated bells and whistles and screen to equal better.
First day with compadre was last day with my ace 350

Same here Stoof
I used a friends Compadre and promptly sold my ID machine.
Seems some folks want Tesoro to make what everyone else makes.

Still unsure what to make of the "defect" talk.
Seems pretty normal for concentric coil fields to tighten up at higher disc settings.
Rarely hunt with it past iron anyway.
Coins help pay for batteries but I'm looking for gold!

Yeah, probably move mine out to a new home as well, of all the Tesoros I have owned and its a lot of models, I like the Mojave the least.
That's my personal choice, others may find it to be the perfect detector for them.

I have never used a Mojave and if i am honest i dont plan on buying one either,have also noticed a fair few are up for sale,the new 7'' coil seems to be a big hit as it can be used on alot of other older and new Tesoro machines and also various derivative models as well.They may well be a very good machine but when folks are selling them without coils as that is the only thing worth keeping it does make you wonder what Tesoro will bring too the market next if at all.It certainly wont be a total new machine probably a re-vamped Mojave with a new paint job and stickers :lol:



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.

Site specific use machines.
TDI Pro 20'' Mono

Crossbow PI Coiltek 14x9 Mono
Mirage PI 5'' Mono
DFX 18'' Detech

IDX Pro 15'' Concentric
Arado120b
B1 and B3

Deus's have been out for a number of years. Where as Mojave's have been out less than 6 months. Many more thousands of Deus's out there than Mojave's. Even more Garrett's for sale also. Of course the more that are out there, the more will be up for sale. That's just plain old basic common sense...
