Tesoro Bandido II - older model question

December 13, 2018 02:40PM
There is a guy locally selling an older style Bandido II for $150. It is the older model with the control box under the handle. It looks used but in decent shape, I bet I can talk him down as it has been for sale a while. It comes with the stock 8" coil. My question is how does the older model compare to the Bandido II uMax? I have my Eldorado uMax that I love, but wonder if it would be any sort on an upgrade in hunting thick beds of square nails. I am tempted but not sure if it is much of an upgrade over what I have and use now. I still use my Teknetics T2 and Eldorado for my old homesites, but am always looking for a slight edge to uncover more in the heavy iron I always seem to hunt, especially at my well hunted sites.

I would love to find a unit that does not false quite as much on the square nails, especially in wetter conditions. My detectors do ok, but takes a lot of concentration to listen for those good signals at times.

Thanks!
