Search coils and detector performance sure can get interesting..

February 14, 2022 07:43PM avatar
I had a 4" Tesoro coil a couple of times but used it very little. That was when I had the 7" Concentric for an Inca and original Bandido. I currently keep a 7" on an Inca for memories of when that detector model and coil served me so well back in the '80s for Relic Hunting sites. I kept using the 7" coils on almost an Tesoro until they brought out the thin-profile 6" Concentric. I just wish they wouldn't have followed White's dumb name-the-coil game. White's went to a 5.3 label on their 6½" diameter coils and Tesoro called there's a 5.75 when the coil measures almost exactly 6" across.

I enjoy very good performance from my Tesoro's using only the 6" and 7" concentric coils. Tesoro's are not known for impressive depth-of-detection so I have other detectors and coils for those needs.

The Cibola is a 'fixed' GB model. Not 'automatic'.
