You really might want to consider the Tejon, if you want a good Tesoro for relic hunting. I've just started using one and in moderate to good ground its deeper than a Vaquero. I've been using an MXT for the last two years and the Tejon compares very favorably.

You are very right! The Tejon is one heck of a relic machine. All one has to do is read a few of the forums and see how well folks do with the Tejon! :clapping: HH TonyTX :tesoro:

You can find good, clean used Cortes for around $500.00 regularly. It is an excellent all-around machine.

I have had about ten detectors of all brands and now I am down to just two. I have a Cibola and a Vaquero and both do well but the ground balance makes a huge difference here in the North Dakota soil! I have used my machines beside some of the higher end "big money" machines and the vaquero does as well if not better in most cases . I don't care for a screen to much because it keeps me from digging . I used a machine when I was over seas that had a meter and for the first few months I would not dig in the foil range until one day I dug one of the foil signals and pulled a very small 1851 silver coin out of the ground. No telling what I had passed over before. The Vaquero is the one for me. Set the ground balance and get to digging. :beers:
