Removing my foot from my mouth.
I jumped to the conclusion that the Tiger Shark was the pulse version when that is the Sand Shark. My bad & apologies.

Just to ease your mind the tesoro is the way to go. I haved owned one now for 3 yrs and quite happy with it. It's a very sensitive machine and the only one I have come across that actually picks up small chains! My area is all fresh water and the tesoro is the only detector I use there. Besides you can't beat the lifetime warranty which Tesoro will back up with a smile. As a matter of fact, I am heading to the river tomorrow!

I may have a chance to buy a refurbished by the factory Tesoro Stingray II for a lot cheaper than a Tiger Shark. Are there any big differences between the two besides age?

Do yourself a favor and buy new. The warranty is not transferrable and water machines have a far greater chance of needing service at some point in time because of the harsher elements they are exposed to.

The sand shark is very good in fresh water also . I use mind in fresh and salt and get very good depth and find very small gold.One other thing The AT PRO, Excal and Whites water detector all have a 1 or 2 year warrenty,were the tiger and sand shark have a life time warrenty and buy NEW.

Stick with the new Tiger Shark Bobby. You can't compare the BHID 300 with the Tesoro since the White's is a two frequency detector like the CZ-21 and 20. The coil on the White's BHID wants to float like a cord and you get worn out holding it underwater near the bottom. The Tiger Shark is the one for freshwater

I love these threads......so many different opinions.

Most seem to be for the tiger shark

The AT will hit at 6 inches on a 0.4 gram 10k ring and 3 inches on a 0.4 gram hollow earring. Its lighter than the Tiger Shark, has a screen, can change coils and easier to change batteries. Im not trying to argue because Ive never used a Tiger Shark, just trying to figure out why it would be better than the ATpro. I was going to buy a Tiger Shark but the AT pro was released and I decided to go with it because I was using an Ace 250.

Even though I don't have a tiger shark either, I think it just comes down to the fact that as much as OEM's try to make one detector that can do it all, that's just not going to happen. The tiger shark was made clearly for freshwater...it has a capability for Salt water, but you get mixed results as I hear when it comes to minerals and such so lets just say freshwater...Sure it can be used on land as well, but it's reputation is known for being killer in freshwater. The AT pro is known for having multiple abilities, but it's reputation is not based off it being used in water even though it can be. I think when a company puts one main focus on a detector compared to another brand trying to do many things with one detector, the winner will go to the primary focus one. I'm sure the at pro can pick up smaller gold, but maybe not chains like the tigershark? Idk. Plus the tigershark is built like a tank and has a lifetime warranty. That's my .2 cents

Just curious what anyone's experiences are using it as a land machine?
