    It is interesting you can "notch" out silver, but can find copper. Can you "notch" out copper ? Did you sweep the ground before you laid out the rug? I'm wondering if someone detuned the detector internally.

    Yes looks like you got hold of a bad unit. As for your bashing of the Tesoro brand machines? I would just say this...don't knock what you don't understand.

    I would call it 11 reasons why not to buy your Tesoro. Any Tesoro I have used hits silver. Obviously you know this but just do not like that product. I like watching people spend all day looking at their screen setting their modes as you dig up treasure.
    You just did a review on a bad machine. Youtube is full of bad advice.
    Good luck in your hunts.

    I have owned several Tesoros in the past, they are good detectors, must have been something wrong with yours.

    Your correct I don't like Tesoro units. The no iron tone cripples those units for relic hunting. I know that unit turned out to be defective but that's not really the point of the video..... What some consider bad advice others might consider it sound advice. Different strokes for different folks.

    Im not a screen watcher myself the Deus remote rides in the pocket while hunting. .

    I keep an old Tesoro in my truck when out and about to check sites to come back to and hunt with it or other machines. Mine has an iron sound It is hard to describe. Its kinda life Pffftttt sound. Once you know it you are right 100% of the time.
    I want to hear iron at first to determine what type of site is is. Then will let it bang away on steel shoot ,cannon balls or gun parts. If nothing of value in the iron on the site I will discriminate it out. I still hear it but know it is iron. The iron sound breaks up. I hunt faster with a tesoro than any other machine. I go back and cherry pick hunted out sites with others.
    Its hard to review a machine that does not work and give good advice calabash.

    I think you turned a lot of ones off with your bashing Tesoro. All Tesoro detectors i have had did a very good job for me.Click image for larger version.

    It's definitely not a brand or machine you're going to learn while piddling around for 5 minutes in the back yard. Like any other detector...takes time to learn the sounds.

    I agree that a screen machine with more tone adjustability will be much much more efficient in certain spots vs a beep and dig but they all have their place IMO.

    I never could past the one tone …..QUESTION if you have a challenged target in iron (iffy signal) does the non ferrous that's masked break up like a iron tone?

    Tesoro crowd is calm compared to the AT PRO crowd when I showed it getting beat to death by other brands...

    Where do you think a beep and dig machine (Tesoro ) outshines other detectors? What type of place?

    I don’t own a Tesoro, nor did I watch your video....
    But reading your title I called BS, based on the thousands of finds I’ve seen here on Tnet from guys who swing that brand.

    My Tesoro found a $5k coin and three $3k each Rev war items. How's your machine doing? But seriously, one tone, I think not, mine screams on silver, and gold, and I can tell after a lot of use which objects are likely iron or not. Teeny tiny deep gold it has issues with, but generally those items sell for $10 anyway. Unlike a nice Confederate button. (Must get out soon and dig button.) It's a hearing thing. I can tell the difference most times before I dig and I have a Cibola. My Deus has found more smaller brass items, but not the big ticket items with the exception of a CW buckle or two and those were softballs, less than 5" under ground. It's not so much the machine, it's the operator.

    I think there may be something wrong with the one you have, in all honesty. You certainly are a VERY GOOD detectorist, so something else is amiss.

    I hope to find one this week going to low country plantation to hunt. Nothing amiss just opens the way for a lively discussion.
