I bought a Mikron NRG 110 about a year ago. It seemed to air test very well, but when I took it outside to try it, it went crazy on me. I called the dealer and ended up sending it back for a refund. The dealer said he bought three detectors to try and two had been defective. I would like to had...
The 1220x was my first good detector back in the early 80's....great little detector. I just found a new old stock 1220x on craigslist for 70 bucks shipped ! I'm anxious to get the 1220x out once again !
I owned one of these detectors back in the early 80's when they were introduced. Great little detector and founds lots of coins with it.
I have been wanting to find another 1220x for nostalgic reasons and all the good memories I have of using that detector. Just happened to find one
The Shadow X2 I used to own had either an A or B in the serial number on the detector. If my memory serves me correctly the B at the end of the serial number indicated it was a Lady Shadow running at 9.6 kHz.
ryaan21, the Tesoro Cortes has the SUM mode switch but you have to hold it in place as you sweep over the target. Never made much sense to me to have it set up that way and didn't care for it so I traded the Cortes off..........HH
Personally I would go with the Vaquero. It is much deeper than the Deleon and runs very smooth and quiet.
I owned a Deleon for a while and it is a nice detector, but I think it would be a much better machine with manual ground balance in the disc mode
The Vaquero will cover all the bases for...
I am well aware of Tesoro's new policy of charging a small fee to repair a detector if you are not the original owner. At the time I made my post about their detectors having a lifetime warranty Tesoro was repairing
detectors for free if you were the 2nd or 3rd owner of the detector. I believe...
I have dug silver dimes at least 7 inches with my Tejon before with a solid signal and Killer B's headphones. I'm sure it will go much deeper than that on a dime in good ground.
Quality headphones are a must with the Tejon to hear those really deep small targets. It loves nickels, lead and brass...
I tried the Cortes and did not like that it didn't have manual ground balance in the disc mode.
The SUM feature was a waste of time and effort in my opinion... unloaded the detector as soon as I could and got a Vaquero.
