Mojave is the newest one, but it came out early in the year I believe.
I got one...love the thing.
In my dirt it works better than the Compadre...pretty on par with my Vaq too.

Still waiting on the Cazador.



"What if doing the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about?”
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 don't know if they just don't have the technology or just ashamed of the name.:rofl:

There are so many great machines on the market why wait around for the elusive Cazador? If you're not happy with what Tesoro offers, then get something else. That's what I did.



Current detectors:
:garrett: ATPro
Previously owned: :tesoro:, :garrett:, :fisher: , :teknetics:, :minelab:, and :whites:

Hey- I did, too. I just can't get very that name!:lmfao:

The 'newest' model, the Mojave, is a splendid detector.

I never cared for the Compadre or Silver microMAX (µMAX) because they were too limiting in their design, The Compadre lacked an external Gain / Sensitivity adjustment and had a hardwired coil, and the Silver µMAX had the interchangeable col and Sensitivity adjustment, but the more limited lower-end Discrimination adjustment range.

The Mojave provides us with a Sensitivity control like the Silver microMAX and the variable aed-180 Disc. adjustment range of the Compadre, plus the selectable 2- position GB setting that is very useful when hunting a variety if sites when the ground mineral make-up varies from very mild to extreme. The audio tone is very pleasant, and it comes with a new 7" Concentric coil that very functional for searching a variety of sites. I got mine as soon as they were introduced and have enjoyed using it through this year. It is a solid member of my Regular-Use Detector Team, and after swapping all my Tesoro search coils around I finally settled on leaving the new Precision 7 Inch Concentric coil on my Mojave.

I am sure we will see another new model from the good folks at Tesoro when they have something designed and field tested. Until then I am sure to keep my all-time favorite Tesoro models on-hand to complement my choices of visual TID models. I think folks can forget about the once spoken of name, Cazador, as it just isn't going to happen. It was a model name for a unit that was under consideration, but plans for that model basically came to an end for understandable reasons.

Tesoro has produced a lot of models, and they have a working line-up at this time. Their overall design approach, which has been to produce quick-response / fast-recovery devices that, for the most part, have been non-display detectors that work well in a wide-range of site conditions, have worked quite well, and they continue to do just what they were designed to do. That why I keep several of my personal favorites in my detector arsenal, and I believe every savvy detectorists ought to have at least one or two Tesoro models in their working detector battery. There is no such thing as a 'perfect' metal detector, but for many site and applications a good Tesoro & coil combination can get the job done for use quite well.

Matter-of-fact, it's 12:30 AM now so I'll be heading out with several of my detectors already loaded, including my Bandido II microMAX and Mojave today, in about 5 hours for a day of detecting enjoyment. :detecting:
