If you are like me, and want a detector with high-end  depth without requiring a law degree to operate . . .  here is your detector!

Some detector functions can be handled best digitally and for some applications it is hard to beat analog precision! This detector uses both technology where best suited!
OK, I implied this detector has high end performance . . . well on some targets it will beat the competition! Especially on small gold and silver jewelry items!

A great detector for the professional or beginner! Small, compact and light weight! The Vaquero is the perfect beach and coin detector! The 14 kHz Frequency will give you great depth, even in areas of heavy black sand. Most detectors receive a "ground- reflection" in those areas with heavy magnetite, and most hunters are completely unaware of their poor detector performance! They can only assume the area has no targets! This little detector will punch through the bad ground and spot the little gold items that were missed!

The Cibola has pre-set ground cancel making it easy to use. When most pre-set ground cancel detectors are calibrated, at the time of assembly, many manufactures detune the coil way more than needed . . . not this one.
I have used this model in Upper Michigan Iron Mining locations and experienced excellent depth!

This is the latest version of the old favorite
Tesoro Silver Saber! This detector almost has a cult- like following! I have heard many times, "Grandpa had a Silver Saber and he found tons of neat treasure!
If you are looking for a great starter detector, or you want a great back-up unit . . . you will love this detector! I keep an older Silver Saber in the store that I use for a rental for those special hard to find items! Rental detectors must be simple, but when a young lady is looking for a tiny lost post earring I send them out with the Silver Saber because I know that machine has the best chance at success!

 The little Compadre is a great detector for someone who needs 'turn-on-and-go' ease! Here is a sweet little detector that is super lightweight and compact! I have some over-the-road truck driver customers, who keep a Compadre in their truck cab. They like to use it when they have lots of lay-over time! They just pop down to the local park, or school, and have fun! My granddaughter uses a Compadre at our club's seeded kid's hunts and it is perfect for her! It is perfect for kids grand kids or grandparents!

The Tiger Shark is the machine of choice for the fresh water hunter & diver! Remember, any detector can find the average size coins and jewelry, the Tiger Shark will find that stuff with ease! The difference is in finding all the little-tiny gold items the other guys miss! One of my customers kept a special display board with all of his gemstone studded earrings. . . it was amazing! Other water hunters would be heard to say, "I never find those."
Waterproof to 200 feet, the Tiger Shark is great for dive recovery work!
The coils are hardwired and I recommend the 8" coil which is great for everything

As a metal detector dealer in the heart of the Great Lakes Region, I sell more waterproof detectors than most dealers. However, all of the water hunting in our neck-of-the-woods is in fresh water. The Sand Shark is a Pulse Induction (PI) detector and a preferred salt water hunter. The PI machines are not affected by the highly conductive and reflective problems found in wet sea salt. Their one downfall, are items which rarely survive in salt water, like linear shaped iron (nails, hairpins, sparkler wires.) In saltwater these items quickly dissolve . . . so they present no problem.
However a hairpin, nail or sparkler wire will last 100 years in fresh water! My point is, consider the PI machines to be SALT WATER HUNTERS!
