Since July of '83, I've never been without at least 2 favorite Tesoro models.

I still believe Tesoro is a viable tool if used in the correct manor, and locations: ie:
tot lots, sidewalk easements, and small 'gridded" out areas in parks.

For ME, a 'correct manner' would be Sensitivity as high as tolerable, Disc. at minimum with ED-120 and earlier circuitry designs, a 'proper' Threshold audio, and for most tasks a smaller-size Concentric coil as a 6" or 7". . Additionally, a 'proper manner' would include using a slow and methodical sweep speed to get the best performance from the 'double-derivative' circuitry for a slow-motion / quick-response and recovery.

They work well in tot-lots and sidewalk repair, as you mentioned, and I grab them first, most of the time, when I encounter any sort of renovation work or old-building demolition. I also use my Tesoro's to set a standard by which I judge all other makes and models when it comes to making the grade as a get-serious Relic Hunting detector for dense Iron Nail contaminated places.

when used with "small" concentric coils can be very effective.

Most Tesoro's are at-their-best in performance with a good Concentric coil as they didn't / don't work so great with most Double-D offerings. My personal preference these days is their 6" Concentric, but in a pinch I might mount a 7" Concentric (if I had one) like that from a Mojave.
