    Near the old ski lodge..

    Found my first Merc. dime for the season, a couple days ago with the Tejon; a nice looking ‘44S.
    Also found a broken key fob/token from the 1956 GM Motorama, along with a little modern coinage and a load of tabs and bottle caps I didn’t disc out.
    The dime was a good 10” down in decaying pine needles, next to an old tree. I know there’s more up there but I’ll need to use the Tejon or Vaquero with the bigger coils to find it. I’ve gone through there quite a bit with my 5.75” coil Bandido and it’s really limited to about an 8” depth on dimes. Just put fresh alkalines in the Tejon - hope to head back up there this afternoon for more.

    Would love to know the depth difference between the small coil on the Bandido and the small coil on the Tejon.

    From memory, a 5.75” concentric was about 2” deeper with the Tejon than my Bandido (on a dime, air-testing). I’ve run the Tejon with a 4 pin 5.75” and it works well - just not as deep as with the 9x8. Bandido has the nicer disc range though (discs out a bottle cap completely while still hitting nickels well), and I much prefer it in the really trashy spots I do.
    I could run either a 9x8 or 8” concentric on the Bandido too, but it still won’t be as deep as with the Tejon.

    I enjoy using my Tejon for relic hunting, easy to operate and just plain fun!

    This just goes to say to those that have stated.. I have the 5.75" on my Vaquero or Tejon and never take it off...well sometimes you do.

    Any coil will go deeper on a Tejon because it's a 12 volt machine. That means it has a more saturated coil detection field and can get clearer signals at the edge of its range
