Has Anyone Ever Used These Coils On A Tesoro

Hi I have these two detectors Golden uMAX and a Eldarado uMAX. Has anybody ever used a
NEL Sharpshooter coil, or a DETECT 8x6 SEF coil on these detectors. I am thinking on buying
these coils and finding out how good they work..

I have tried the Sharpshooter but not the SEF.

Best adjustability with the manual GB Eldorado, however it depends on where you hunt and what you are after. I can tell you this and it is based on my 39 years of owning, using, being a dealer for, and watching many others evaluate coils on their own Tesoro's, and that is this:

Most Tesoro's were designed with Concentric coils, and when hunting in abundant Iron Nails and similar ferrous debris sites, I have never been impressed with overall performance of DD coils on most Tesoro models.

Can a Tesoro use a DD? Yes. But that doesn't mean the performance is great. I have 9 detectors currently and some use only DD's and others use Concentrics. Some detectors were just engineered to perform better with one type more than the other.

What is it that you want in the way of performance that you feel is lacking now, and which coils are you using?

I just want to get the best depth I can as long as it is not really deep. I have a Golden uMAX and
I know they only go about 8" deep and people say the 8 inch concentric coil is what they use..

I only had an original Golden microMAX a short while, and tried the revised version. They didn't work well in the mineralized ground I searched in Oregon, Utah and Arizona and tone response was off. Dimes and half the quarters responded in the next lower tone.

I thought they came with the 8X9 Concentric, but I tried them with 8X9, 8" and 7" Concentrics and had similar results.

Remember, too, that this model relies on an internally set Ground Balance which might well need attention with a coil change.
