They say the tejon was a bit too sensitive and sometimes worked against it as you would have to turn down sensitivity therefore losing depth. In ideal conditions it was very deep. The vaquero was more stable and very deep.Many of my best finds were made with a vaquero. A friend with a Tejon was as amazed as I was to see the Tejon could not stay with the Vaquero. The vaquero was hitting deep, small targets that the Tejon just could not hear.
When I decided to start again the first thing i did was look online to buy a vaquero, thats when i sadly realized they were out of business.
When I researched i found the Legend to be the best for money and had added features that I really liked.
I still would have probably bought a vaquero just because it is such a great detector. I see a company in Europe has similar analog detectors that really resemble the vaquero and Tesoro in general. Just wasn’t sold on some things like the battery pack(8 AA) on the back of shaft, as opposed to one 9V in the box and the coil wasn’t very appealing to me either.
They have a new concentric that is closed style which some people like i personally prefer open.
Don’t know much about them,
They could be excellent detectors, to me its not a vaquero. I’ll just stick with the Legend
