    My Sabre 2 is gettin' a little long in the Sabre Tooth! Which Tesoro to buy now?

    I love my Silver Sabre II, but I just sold my only other machine (Minelab) and need a new primary or back-up. I primarily hunt for coins and relics in Non-motion/All Metal and reverse discriminate on certain targets. I like to hear those faint deep signals that DISC mode can miss. I've narrowed it down to the Outlaw, the Lobo, and the Tejon.
    The Outlaw worries me because of the single 9-volt battery. I doubt its power, though its features seem perfect for me.
    The Lobo is a motion machine, but seems to have a reputation for impressive depth and I like its configuration.
    The Tejon is designed for relic hunting and, if I heard right, the DISC knob can be clicked to the left, putting the machine in a non-motion/all metal setting.
    Which one will pull the deepest Minnie?

    My experience with the Outlaw has been fantastic. I've used all three coils but the 8" concentric is the one I use the most. Good depth and no issues with from my perspective with the single 9 volt battery. Disc, All Metal no motion and motion work great.

    Thanks. I'm wonderin' if the Outlaw will be any improvement over my old Silver Sabre II though.

    The Outlaw is underrated and a SUPER coin hunter but, if you are looking for depth on a minnie-ball with the ability to discriminate, the Tejon beats the pants off both the Lobo ST (which goes into a factory pre-set ground balance when set to Discrimination Mode) and the outlaw. Personal experience with all three machines. Get the 12x10 to put on your new Tejon - Nirvana!

    I'd have to agree with Terry. If your biggest concern is deep minnie balls and the like, go with the Tejon. For more general detecting, coins shooting etc. the Outlaw or the Vaquero would be good choices, but don't have the raw depth of the T.

    Thanks to you both. I'll be ordering the Tejon, with the 10x12 coil. For today though, the Sabre and I will be deep in ivy again later!
