Tesoro Vaquero v Minelab x-terra 705
« on: April 11, 2014, 15:13 »
I currently own a Minelab x-terra 705 and have been doing a lot of park hunting.
With the 705 the signal for a gold coin comes up as the same or similar as a screw cap, although i've generally been able to tell the difference by the higher pitch with the pinpoint tone.
After doing a bit of reading I've found that the Vaquero and other Tesoro detectors have a great reputation for being a park machine with fantastic and fast discrimination.
What i haven't been able to tell is whether they can discriminate out the screw cap and leave the gold coins?
If anyone could help out with this question it'd be greatly appreciated.
Ben

They will still pick up the aluminium screw caps just like a goldie, they take out crown seals really well and sometimes still hit the odd old ring tab

Cheers for that...I'm thinking about grabbing one.

The 705 is the only detector I've used and like the tid and depth indicator...but a lot of people rave about the tesoro's.

I have the X Terra 70, the Tesoro Cibola and a few other Tesoros, a couple of them no longer available new.  I dont have the Vaquero, but if you are looking for a Tesoro to use in parks, the Cibola is a great machine....it does not have manual ground balance (the Vaquero does), so it is not as versatile as the Vaquero, but itis good in parks and most beaches.  Up to you...either way you get a good detector.

I support what Peter says...I was flat out keeping up with the Cibola on a recent 4 week detecting stint..

The 705 is far above the low level Tesoro machines in
My opinion . If you aren't digging aluminium screw caps then u are missing good targets. It comes with the territory , they sit in good target range, on the ctx it is easy to figure which is which,  and 7 out of ten times it is a bottle cap. But if you aren't digging them them u are missing coins with other targets , silver items.

I hope you have used a low level tesoro machine before making a comment like that
