Congrats with getting one of the two recent eBay Bandido II mircomax units, I seen them and almost bid on one.

Get a small coil, Smaller coil seems right with the Bandido, the stock seems a little to big for my type of hunting.

Congratulations with getting the Bandido II micromax,
Paul

Thanks. I bid on the first one but was out bidded by $5. Got this one for under $300 with shipping. I'm told by someone at Tesoro that it's the best they ever made. They've made some good ones so we shall see. It's the one that came with the extra 5.75 coil!

What do you love the most? What does this detector do that my Vaquero won't do?

Not what it does that the vaq won't. More like how it does it.

They all find metal. That's a given.

But for coin and jewelry hunting, the way it's spread combined with the ed120 blocking most iron out at minimum makes for a great machine!!!

If relic hunting, you want the iron to be there to a point. But for coin and jewelry you don't need it and will block it out anyway.

I'm a firm believer to having right tools for what's needed. And with the higher audio frequency and the way the disc is along with the features I don't use too much, it's a great tool.

Because of the 120, it's really quiet in iron trash. It's stable as anything you could ask for, it has external user GB, well it's just great.

If your using for coins it sounds like you don't even need to move the discrimination from the lowest setting? Or do you go just below nickel?

Up to you.
But as I said above what makes it special is it's ability to separate high coinage at the high end.

You can disc out dime and still get quarters and silver. You can disc out dimes and quarters and still get silver.

So unlike others if you want to cherry pick, you have to set the machine to disc out what you don't want or just barely let in what you do and go from there.

Meaning if you want quarters and up you have to set it to accept quarters but not dimes. And so on.

Most other tesoros you can set at max and cherry pick dimes, quarters and most silver.
