Re: The Tesoro Cibola is not the model you want.

Thanks for the detailed reply Monte. Yes, I do have a few other detectors,,, all of which will do what I want from them. However, I really "want" to like the beep & dig simplicity of my $40 Compadre. My biggest issue with the Compadre as it sits, is confidence. I have a silver dime buried 4" in my yard. It's been there in my red dirt almost 2 years now. ( Since you are a detail oriented person, my yard ground balances with a reading of 58 to 62 with the T2 and MXT. ) I can detect the dime with a good TDI and depth reading with the other machines. With the Compadre however, I can hit it sometimes, but sometimes not. I'm not 100% sure why it will not hit the dime all the time,, but I think it may be ground moisture related. At any point, I lack confidence in the machine because I know it will not hit that 4 inch dime consistently as it sits. I feel like if I could get a good ground balance, it would hit it every time. And if I could hit that 4" dime every time, I could have confidence that it would be a good machine for picking out some masked coins in the two "hunted out" 1800's parks in my area.

Yes, I could use the T2 with the 5" DD,, or the MXT with the Eclipse 5.3,,,,,,,,,,but I really want to get this Compadre figured out.

Sorry if I rambled,,,,
