The "nail board test" is only one of several tests that should be taken into consideration.---

Quite true. ALL 'tests' are only that, a 'test' to get an idea about a detector's strengths and weaknesses. The final test of realization is to take the units out and use them in natural sites for finding unknown targets at uncertain depths, in odd orientations and often with nearby masking trash.

One think I pointed out to the fellow was the BellTone audio 'Off' had his Garrett handling some nail conditions bettet. Still didn't match what my Tesoro was doing but was better. Matter of fact, we finished our discussion and demonstration and he made the cbange and started using a proper sweep. Turned and hunted off toward his vehicle maybe 15 feet and made a bucket-lister find .... a 2-Cent piece.

That detector can do some things many modern detectors can't do as well, but it and most newer stuff still wouldn't bump my Tesoro's from my line-up.

Wouldn't nudge my Garrett Apex, either, because the Apex has more going for it overall.
