New Mojave

...Tesoro have a new machine???...looks like a hyped up version of the  the Compadre....hopefully it has a new niche in the market..certainly the price is realistic, and the brand name has a  reputation for simplicity but effectiveness ...it will be good to read some feedback of those who have given it a swing!

A new baby will be delivered shortly courtesy of a very generous midwife, how's that for being cryptic.

Best to take that as a positive, others must be drawn to it, hence demand is high, the patience of a saint is what will be required here.

....yep OL56, ...it was when the Cibola first came out  ;D.....having said that, the second hand one we bought from a forum member a year or two ago came in at around $400....

Ringa's Cibola has (as she refers to it) a..."skirt"..and is high pitch,..but when she flies down to visit her parents, she packs "the man Cib"...(low tone!)....we're a strange pair Ringa and I  :laugh:

..Take it easy OL 56...

Yep...New Mojave ...posted from the USA...including postage  ...$457.00 au...

...there is a very quiet corner in OZ that distributes Tesoro machines...wonder what price they have on the Mojave?...or, more to the point, are they actually stocking Tesoro, or simply ordering a machine in when requested ? ? ? 
I see only 3 machines advertised on the distributors site... The Cibola and the new Mojave are noticeable by their absence!

I hear you ohb1, exchange rate is about 76 cents in the Dollar, I have recently obtained one (or rather another Forum member did all the heavy lifting) for less than your figure, still, when you use your finds resources it cost you nothing, don't think we will be seeing Aussie stock in the foreseeable future which is a shame as for an entry level Detector it can't be faulted, I am using it at the moment and will post my thoughts later.....cheers Colin.
