    Cibola Coil Confusion

    I have a Cibola detector that I bought second hand that has been modified with ground balance function. However, some other changes may have taken place.

    For instance, I bought an after-market CORS coil for it and received it today. The plug on the coil is a 5-PIN male plug. The Cibola I have has a 4-PIN male plug on the control box and a 4-PIN female plug on the coil cable!!

    What is the right plug on the Cibola and has my Cibola been modified?

    Cibola, Vaquero, and Tejon are all 4 pin. You got a coil for Tesoros 5-pin, Umax models. It's not anything with the detector, just the wrong style of coil.

    You just got the wrong coil. The 4 pin is standard on the Cibola.

    Just thought Iíd throw in my two cents here - unless thereís some reason you need to use that CORS coil...send it back and get yourself a genuine Tesoro coil. I suppose some folks like their aftermarket coils, but I didnít care for the one CORS I had. Tesoro coils work great.
    Thatís all I have to say about that.
    move along - nothing to see here..

    Only reason I'd get aftermarket is if they had a certain type (concentric/DD) and size that Tesoro doesn't make. To date noone makes an elliptical concentric so I use what I have and all genuine Tesoro.
    But, to each their own and as long as it fits your needs, buy whatever you want!! :-)
