Compadre. Bottom end discrimination. In my sites, I never found enough difference in depth for the other Tesoros.

Eldorado. Compared to the Vaquero, on paper they are pretty much the same, except the Eldorado is around 10 Khz whereas the vaquero is around 14 Khz. The lower the Khz, the easier it is to find silver....

Today I found an 1867 indian head cent with my golden sabre so I guess my golden sabre is my favorite. But tomorrow you never know...

I have always wondered about the LST and the X2 as well.

What coil do you run on you LST? That small elliptical that came stock or have you replaced it with something else?

That's a tough question for me. I have many. Each shine in different types of hunting.

Mild ground general coin and jewelry:
Compadre or Mojave for ease of use
Deleon if I want a screen

Tough ground need GB:
Coin and jewelry: outlaw or bandido II micromax
Relic: vaquero

Favorite all around in mild soil is compadre
Favorite GB machine for general hunting is bandido II micromax (outlaw if I didn't have a b2 micromax)

I can't speak for any machines not in my signature as I haven't used them. But for what I have those are my picks



Stefan (Michigan)

Nokta Fors Relic 7x11", 5.5x10"DD, 5", 5.5x10 Concentric


Makro Racer 2 - 7x11", 5.5x10", 5" DD, 7" concentric


:tesoro: Mojave
:tesoro: Deleon - Troy shadow super 7",
:tesoro: Compadre 8
:tesoro: Compadre 5.75
:tesoro: Bandido II Micromax
:tesoro: Outlaw
:tesoro: Cibola- GB/all metal toggle mod
:tesoro: Vaquero
:tesoro: Cutlass Micromax 8

Lots of coils

*Not listed in any special order*

Tools:
Garrett carrot, lesche shovel, Killer B Wasps, my bare hands

Mine would be the UK version of the Vaquero which is running at 19khz,fixed/manual GB,Tejon battery box,high tone,and many other internal tweaks that make it basically like running on steroids,hate the stock 11x8 coil but love it with the NEL Snake 6.5''x3.5'' coil on it,terrific for trashy roman sites and getting in between the stubble rows come harvest time.But the target separation is its winning trump card with that small coil on.



Every hole is like a scratch card. Usually it’s nothing. Sometimes you win a prize.

Of the three Tesoros that I have used; the Golden micromax (original tones), the Outlaw, and the Mojave... I prefer the Golden. It’s just fun to use, plain and simple. I didn’t put a lot of time on the Outlaw before having to part with it, and the Mojave still needs to be broken in, so my preference is a bit biased. Maybe I will have a different opinion by the end of the coming summer.



Present machines: Golden uMax, Tesoro Mojave, Garrett pro-pointer
Past Machines: Bounty Hunter 840, Tesoro Outlaw
Oldest US Coin find: 1839 seated half dime (AU condition)
