    bought a deleon

    well i hope i can keep this one longer than the rest i've had had a few of these in the past and have found many firsts with it and have found that it is one of the most acurate TID machines out there! other than the depth gauge.

    Re: bought a deleon

    we'll just have to compare note's won't we get mine tomorrow it's sort of like tesoro conquista with a screen but i'd really like to know though if anyone out there has ever tried the big 10.5" donut coil which they don't make for the umax line any more i think the 12 x 10 coil throws the TID all out of whack so always trying to find that perfect to understand detector!

    Re: bought a deleon

    Someone on another forum posted this as a basic guide to the Deleon screen ID numbers:


    small gold 20-30
    nickels 33-39
    ladys gold ring 35-41
    mens gold ring 41-54
    lead bullet 58
    rifle brass 62-68
    zinc penny 66-78
    all other coins 95

    And another kind soul suggested if the number locks on 41, just dig it!

    Wondering why you think the 12x10 throw off the TID. Its designed for use on the Deleon.

    Re: bought a deleon

    well just some of the posts read in the past that most people wer'nt very happy with that set up, but i'm really currious on is the old discontinued 10" donut coil? i'd think that combo would be a winner but sometimes you just never know?

    Re: bought a deleon

    Hi all,

    I got one one year ago. Well, I love it, but I got some complain...But it's nothing you can't overcome by learning the machine:

    1. Preset GB, unfortunately some website suggested me it was autoGB and I was lured by this.... A such level machine is very strange won't have an auto GB.

    2. Signal jumps a lot, always check 4 directions before to dig a good signal.

    3. Odd shaped irons really fools it, sometime..


    A pro...depth is awesome.

    I also got a Vaquero and love it more, same depth or a bit more, then. Anyway, I tried Garretts, Whites, and many more...I just love Tesoros!!

    Re: bought a deleon

    yes i know what you mean and sizing is important as well because big iron will show up as 95 alot of times and solid lock on too as you mentioned is critacal!

    Yeah! When I've learnt the machine I was able to know it was junk also if it gaves a good signal on two sides sweep....you literally "feel" is junk. Sometimes I raise the coil and it reads correct 0-17 or around. Deleon is a machine you must know very fine...I bought Vaquero after just because with deleon I realized sound is more accurate than nay TID.

    Re: bought a deleon

    One thing about the Deleon, is don't set the Sens. too high. Start at about 5 or 6 and slowly adjust upwards until the machine becomes unstable.

    Also, remember that even the trash you have Disc. OUT, will still be shown on the TID screen. That's how you isolate a good target in a nest of trash. I've done it several times.................pinpoint a nickel or penny in the middle of a "nest" of pop tops.
