All of the recent uploads on Youtube about the Tejon are foreign.

Foreign Tesoro units? Rebranded Tejon

I searched "Tesoro Tejon" on YouTube and then adjusted the search filter to "This Year"... every video at the top is from a foreign country. A couple of videos had what looks to be rebranded Tejons. Some of them getting some gnarly depth on air tests.

I've never seen a Tejon look like this.. Any thoughts? Did Tesoro send of over completely different styled units to Europe and elsewhere? Interesting.

I know those sold in UK were different names than the same made for the USA. Actually the lack of YouTube post is a good thing ;) Keeping our secret safe!

Ya, the guy in this video sounds French? Idk, I'm not good with languages.

I've seen the standard Blue/Grey Tejon and the Tejon Black, but never one styled like the one in the OP. I wonder if Tesoro actually made it or some guy got his hands on the schematics and started making some of his own.

It's all interesting to me.

Yes, Tesoro sold ?em sometimes with different features and often with different face and side decals. Seems the French market got some of the coolest looking Tesoros of all! English market also got some interesting versions..

My favorite though, was probably the French model Bandido..

I guess my curiosity is answered.. Just a French Tejon in the video I posted. I still think he's getting a little bit more depth on the air test than me.

I'm wondering if that RSD coil just has more depth than my standard 9x8 Concentric.. I might need to buy one of those coils.
