  1. Do you think Fisher will go out of business soon?

    I have a broken Tesoro Tiger Shark with less than thirty hours use, Tesoro out of business, warranty irrelevant and no way for me to fix the thing. I have a older working White's and was thinking of getting another but they are out of business now as well. So now I am leaning towards a Fisher...
  2. Coil for tiger shark?

    I guess my coil is bad on my tiger shark so I am going to try and splice a new coil onto the thing. Does anyone know what coil I should try? I am not opposed to building my own coil, if I knew the specs I should be aiming for. Thanx.
  3. Tesoro potentiometer question

    I have decided to try and fix my tiger shark myself because I think I may have it. The threshold pot has 100k marked on the side but the one in my machine is reading 300k with the pot turned all the way down and in the millions turned up. The sensitivity pot though I can't find a marking, mine...

  5. Tesoro TigerShark needs repair, suggestions?

    My machine is not very old but it never got the depth I was told was normal and then I tripped and dropped the thing. It starts up and beeps multiple times like it is supposed to and then it just screams. I saw a guy on youtube vix a different brand machine that acted the same and it was a...
  6. Ordered 1 metal detector , they sent me 3

    I ordered this cheap metal detector online because the thing cost less than I could buy a rod for and I only wanted the rod for my custom detector I am making, I figure I might take the control box apart and make a custom pinpointer thingy., . Today I open the big box they sent me and there are...
  7. This metal detector just convinced me I am 'getting' old.

    Found some random metal detecting blog today and he had some photos of machines under the title "What they looked like before we were born. Old metal detectors" Of course the first photo just happens to be the first machine I bought from Sears when I was in the 11 grade. It broke and ended...
  8. My theory on Bigfoot

    Bigfoots are extraterrestrials. They land , walk around a bit then get back on their spaceship and leave. That is why they are impossible to track by even the most skilled hunters yet leave giant footprints everywhere.
  9. I Just ordered PI kit from Russia, any tips ?

    I ordered a P.I kit from Russia today. I have never built one before but it looks like what Silverdog was selling several years ago as a Barracuda. I am not certain though. A guy in Canada is offering to build a water proof coil built custom to the specs of the kit, but I don't really know what...
  10. Is White's customer service better than the rest?

    I am in pain over my broken Tesoro Tiger Shark which I bought in part because of its lifetime warranty ,which is now worthless. I have been looking at all kinds of replacement machines new and used but but after reading so many post on TN about hassles with Minelab and Fisher and the thought...
  11. TigerShark dead, looking at Cz21 vs Aquanaut , anyone used both?

    I mostly hunt fresh water stream and beaches and do not go deep in water. Is the Cz21 worth the extra $500. And also ,does anyone have a guess what I can get for a barely used broken Tiger Shark now that Tesoro is toast?
  12. TreasureNet just saved me I think

    I have not been here for a couple of years since my hardly used Tesoro Tiger Shark stopped working. I got it ready to send to Tesoro for repairs and decided to come back to TreasureNet and sat here mouth agape reading about Tesoro's troubles and alll that. I had no idea, I was sending my...
  13. is this normal depth for tigershark?

    I have now used my new Tesoro tiger shark on about ten hunts or so. It seems like if it detects anything deeper than approx. 3.4 to 4 inches , it will be a piece of metal the size of your palm. Yesterday hunting a river, I used my Garrett carrot to push a good size silver ring exactly 5 inches...
  14. long dry spell broken ,maybe

    I have not found anything resembling a piece of jewelry in 10 hunts or so. yesterday I found a nice size silver ring on the street while I was walking to my car, does that count?
  15. finally bought a garrett carrot pinpointer..

    I never would buy a 'real' pinpointer because it just seemed like a whole lotta money for something my eyes could do. Finally broke down and did it because I am kinda lazy. Now after using it on four hunts I feel like Charlton Heston,..... "From my cold dead hands!"
  16. man i thought i got lucky

    During my first disastrous outing with my new tiger shark I dug for over an hour though rocks and sand and reached a flat piece of metal with a beautiful patina. I wasn't going to dig anymore just for flat piece of metal, filled it in and came home and pouted. This week I read a post on T.N...
  17. first day with new Tiger Shark. oh no me oh my

    Got my new tiger shark to hunt a few lakes around here. The lakes are still too cold for me so I tried a creek with about 6 inch of water. Hard digging, rocks on top of rocks, could not see jack,. If the lakes I want to hunt are this difficult you guys will have a chance to buy a barley used...
  18. any of you guys use inexpensive prescription snorkle mask?

    I moved from contacts to glasses last fall so now all my snorkel mask are useless to me. I really do not want to spend $200+ on a mask so I can float around in 6ft of water. scuba choice and IST optical have these mask for less than 60bucks and what they do is you give them your prescription...
  19. this may be stupid question about pinpointers

    I saw a vid on youtube and this guy was doing an air test with a pinpointer and marking the results on a sheet of papper. The pinpointer was beeping on a penny at about 2.5 inches at the tip and similar on the sides. I thought " well if I stick that thing in a hole and it goes beep the coin...
  20. you guys are making me feel mighty stoopid.

    I used to hunt 50 cent rolls in high school. My mom would get a couple of rolls and give me and my little brother 2 or three coins a day to take to school with us. I would keep the silvers. never did it again after high school. 15 years later I ended up working behind a bar at a Casino in...
