Hi to all you Tesoro lovers :)
I have one question for you...
What is difference in these two detectors Tesoro Lobo and Tesoro Lobo Supertraq.
Can't find much on Tesoro Lobo (plain).

Thank you!

I believe the major difference is the Lobo has manual ground balance and the Loba Super Trac has automatic ground tracking. Also, I believe the coil connections on the Lobo are not compatible with the coils that will work on the Super.

Designer:
Lobo .. Jack Gifford
Lobo ST .. David Johnson


Production Dates: (with a 6-month overlap)
Lobo .. 12/'89 thru 6/'97
Lobo ST .. 1/'97 to Present


Operating Frequency:
Lobo 20 kHz
Lobo ST .. 17.8 kHz


Primary Differences in control operation:
Lobo .. Manual GB that affected BOTH the All Metal and Discriminate modes.
Lobo ST .. Auto-tracking in the All Metal mode, and factory preset GB in the Discriminate mode.


Added Comments:
They used their own search coil sets and do not share search coils.

Both can be very good general-purpose detectors but tend to excel in the gold nugget hunting category.

I have owned and used both in years past. I liked the Lobo SuperTRAQ, but in the end I preferred the 'original' Lobo with the operator-controlled Ground Balance for each search mode.
