    I do get lucky once in a while.. Out with the Tejon today and to be honest, it’s not my favorite Tesoro. This is one of the newer black ones but I actually had a hotter gray one before. Sold the gray though, as it didn’t have a warranty in my name. I bought this black one new and sent in the card, so I figured it should be the one I keep. Got this Tejon with the Widescan coil, but put a concentric on it. Why? Because the discrimination works better. Anyway, I wanted to do an area I do every year ‘cause people play there every year. I’d probably gone over this same spot with other Tesoros before but probably also had the disc up higher too. This year I decided to dig more tabs and keep disc just below nickel. I still haven’t found a “buff” but remain hopefull. Maybe this year. Second disc is set to just below screwcap to see if it could be a better coin.. I really don’t want zinks, but I’m fine with a solid “round” signal above zinc.
    Today’s treasure made me do the dance.. This is my third “quality” ring so far this year, and I haven’t even been getting out much. Just about to go home when I dug this - it sounded really good at the main disc setting, unlike a blaring and scratchy pulltab. It was gone at my second disc setting thoigh, so I was curious. This one was about 3” down. 14K, with a rock. Has some funky makers marks inside; need to look ‘em up. I just got home and haven’t even cleaned it off yet so I’ll put more pics up later. My daughter who was out there too with her Compadre took these pics for me.

    As we know - it’s about the location - and how much trash you’re willing to dig. At my main disc setting (just below nickel) this sounded loud like a big coin and smooth; not blaring and scratchy like tabs. Toggled to second disc and it was gone so I knew it wasn’t a big coin, like it sounded at main disc.. Lots of trash around this spot, but it sounded pretty “dig-able”.
    That particular spot where I dug it is an annual snow play area. When hands are numb, things do fall off.. Found a nice gold bracelet right near there a couple years ago.

    Nice acorn blind squirrel! Wonder what that would have IDed on one of our new wiz bang digital sticks.
    Wonder if you would have dug it?

    I'm ready for test results on the Deeptech Vista X. Have always loved to hunt discrimination with a threshold.
    I could hear and identify a target much better with analog verses digital.
