    Who here uses an original LOBO ?

    Hey folks, I bought another old Tesoro today.. Want to try some nugget hunting on the cheap.

    Anyone here use the "original" Lobo? Have you used yours with the concentric coils and if so, how do you like those coils on the Lobo?

    How competent is the original Lobo at nugget hunting?

    I was looking at that one as well, the Super Traq as you know as automatic GB compared to the Lobo manual, I was wondering the same thing how they compared when the the ground in balanced to the coil especially on nugget hunting compared to just coin hunting.. If I had the Lobo either one it would only have the elliptical on it and nothing else, see no other need to change it out.

    The one I bought comes with an eliptical that I think is a concentric (hard to read) and a 4" round concentric. That's the main reason I bought that one. Pretty sure Tesoro offered both concentric and Widescan in the eliptical shape.

    Can you post a list of your Tesoro's if that is ok, always interested in hearing what people own. Also if you were to suggest another Tesoro to what I currently own what would you say would be a next Tesoro for me to have, my soil is not highly mineralized and I would like to think of getting one in the future, just not sure what that would be?

    I'll get around to posting a pic with all of 'em someday. I do have a few, and certainly have my favorites.
    I like using each of 'em once in a while and in certain places, but my current land detecting favorites are the Bandido II μMAX, Eldorado, Outlaw and Mojave.
    I probably use the Bandidos most often; great machines.

    I'm sure that somebody with an original Lobo may speak up eventually. Probably not that many people using the older ones. I should have mine by next weekend, so I'll make a post on how it seems to do, after I get some time on it. Just went back to the listing on mine and had another look at the eliptical coil, and it definitely is a concentric eliptical. Don't know what that means for nugget hunting, but it should be awesome for coins.

    I have one ...don't get to use it much here, but it does well on coins and such. it will sniff out gold better than my newer detectors. I got it for my grandson, but it's a little too heavy for him...I usually hip-mount it. It originally had the 5 x 10 elliptical coil but it was bad ...I sent it in to Tesoro last year and Rusty tuned it up and gave me a great deal on a new coil 5 x 10 elliptical ...I am strongly considering selling it soonClick image for larger version.

    angelito1, thanks for posting.
    Does yours have the Widescan or the concentric eliptical on it? Wondering which is the more sensitive gold coil. Also, how does the depth seem on coins?

    When I spoke to Alan Cannon a year ago when I first got my Concentric 5.75" I told him I was going to pick up my coil on the way out to B.C. and may stop and hunt the river beds in Grand Forks, at the time the 5.75" Widescan would be the way to go to hunt small nuggets with the Vaquero when it is GB well, but realistically I turned to the concentric for my area I would be hunting most of the time, so I changed my order from the widescan to concentric for that case...now I would not doubt it would be far off from the widescan can performance as well the concentric penetration narrowing in would be a pretty good way to go, keeping in mind to swinging slow and having the threasholed feature set right along with sensitivity for gold on the concentric would still be not a wrong decission here, either way will find gold good maybe the widescan a bit better but if you are going to use it for coin shooting as well I would settle for the concentric myself.

    Taken from Tesoro web site.

    The SuperTRAQ comes with a 10 inch elliptical widescan coil. Optional coils are also available: 7 inch elliptical concentric coil, 8 inch round concentric coil, 8 inch round widescan coil and the 11 inch round widescan coil.
    For most nugget hunting conditions, the widescan or double "D" coil would be the choice because it handles high mineralization the best. However, the widescan coil does not discriminate as well as the concentric coil. Therefore, I believe the choice for most coin hunting conditions would be the concentric coil.

    That's new to me!!!
    Didn't know they made a football shaped elliptical concentric!!!
    I want one!!!
    I still can't find anything on it besides that.
    I know they made a smaller 4ish" wide elliptical as an accessory coil for lobo. Maybe that's it. Not sure if that one was a concentric or not
