Tesoro New Detector - The Cazador

4 posts in this topic

Now that we know the name , I remember Steve saying their Lobo ST was getting a bit old.

So hope it's a new gold detector ? :huh:

"So hope it's a new gold detector"

I very much doubt that, so I hope they prove me wrong. More likely if they are smart they are taking tips from Keith Southern on building a better machine for hunting in thick nails. Something more along the lines of a Vista Gold but with expanded discrimination range would be a good fit for them.

Im watching the Cazador with great anticipation...

 

1-I hope its a reworked Tejon with a nice tight Elliptical DD as stock...

 

2-I hope they give us a better housing...maybe along the lines the X5 shadow...very robust and dust proof...

 

3-Work on the battery life...right now the Tejon looses audio gain once the power dwindles...and it dwindles quickly..

 

4-have the first disc range just cover iron and where ever you set the disc allow it to also break the tone from low grunt to higher tone for accepted target's....((((((((((((((((((why add the low tone for rejected target's? well the silence is killing us in iron...the more rejected target ( nails) we hear the more we know how to hunt it more effectively.. alert you to slow swep speeds down, approach different angles etc....plus the AUDIO GATE staying open will unmask a tad better than the nulling effect of a silent disc'd item.. you may ask say just a tad? But every bit helps when your at the disadvantge.. it could mean a gold coin left for the next more precise hunter to get))))))))))))))))))))

 

5-Add a volume control for the low grunt tone..

 

6-Add some selectable filtering for clean to noisy report on the disc reject..

 

7-A boost circuit would be most welcome for the fainter hits that we have to really listen for on the tesoro's to get the deepies..

 

wait a minute I just decribed the GMP and the DTVG...

 

But you Know whats funny...Ive  had it in the back of my mind the GMP was actually built off the tejon and just added to it to make it a site unlocker....

 

Tesoro has a great circuit  and very depenable it just needs to be revamped...Hopefully they are looking to compete with the newer machines...

 

The thing is depth is tapped out...seriously... most all modern machines are within an inch or 2 of each other on in ground target's some hotter on one thing than another but in a collective mix their all pretty uniform in the dirt...

 

The best advantages to be had are in the habitat sites of yesteryear..where there was people staying for long periods of time  there are the most goodies lost..and one of the biggest things lost in those sites is iron... nails to be exact... and to combat that you need specialty machines especially if those sites have been hunted for years already...

 

The things left masked by just simple nails is mind blowing..the sites like house places or military camps sites or even old miner 49er spots are littered with iron debris and the easy targets have been got and even some masked target's to boot but the stuff got already does not equal whats still left...

 

Nails have a tendancy to rise to the top coins, GOLD, silver, buckles bullets etc go to the bottom.. 1  3 inch long nail will cut out a jar of money that's 14 inches deep...if the nail is jut 1 inch deep under the coil but in the field of view of the coil over the top of the quart jar.. So imagine what thousands of nails to do hundreds of non ferrous item's...We just scratch the surface even with the newest tool's...

 

Im a firm believer that theres more in the ground right now than has ever been found to date combined..

 

 

Manufacturers are starting to catch on that the depth is maxed out so they are looking for site unlocker's now.. and hopefully Tesoro is serious...

 

Just like a P.I. is a must for unlocking bad, dirt a site machine Like the GMP or the DTVG or the DEUS are a must for serious iron unlocking. and even some newer machines to come along lately like the AT's and the G2's and such are also very good to have on hand for a few more keepers out of irony site's...

 

Hope the Tesoro Cazador is a contender..

Keith,

I have read your stuff over on Tom D's Forum, going back over several years of your posts.

What you posted above is the clearest and best summary I recall seeing of your insights. Your want list should be nailed to the wall of the engineering department of any manufacturer who wants to sell high performance relic hunting machines.

The part I love is that the machine/brain interface for you is aural. Like some sonar man on an escort vessel in the North Atlantic in 1943 hunting Nazi subs, you are dragging every bit of intelligence out of what the machine can offer.

I'd still like a free pony however.

      ML's parent company, Codan issued their fiscal year 2016 annual report today - in it they announced two metal detecting product introductions for their Fiscal year 2017 (1 July 2016 - 30 June 2017).
      the larger coil for the GPZ (just FY 2017 - no date given)
      an entry level gold detector for the african market "at the end of 2016". I strongly suspect that this will be a VLF machine since the price point needs to be competitive with the current African  market leader, Fisher's,Gold Bug.
      nothing new on multi freq. or VLF detectors mentioned.

      Minelab is the only metal detector company which is a publically traded stock (Codan) so they are legally required to publish accurate data.

      From http://www.trademarkia.com/xventure-86677796.html
      "On Monday, June 29, 2015, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for XVENTURE by White's Electronics, Inc., Sweet Home, OR 97386. The USPTO has given the XVENTURE trademark serial number of 86677796."
      A Russian site at http://md-arena.com/wiki/whites-xventure/ has very speculative information hinting at multi frequency, 11" DD coil, and 4 AA batteries. The fuzzed out picture is probably not the machine - I am guessing they just wanted a teaser so used a Teknetics G2 photo and blurred it. The whole specs thing could just be wild guesses so do not put much store in any if this except the trademark application, which usually means a new machine in the year following the application. Or no machine at all - not all trademarks get used.

      Hello all,
      Longtime lurker, first time poster as they say.  I've been coin detecting for about 2.5 years and now want to try gold detecting.  Although I consider myself a decent detectorist when it comes to coins, I have no experience detecting gold.  I don't even know if there is gold in my area...but I'm going to give it my best shot to find out.  That being said, I don't want to go out and buy a dedicated gold machine right now.  I would like to try what I have, see if it looks promising and then maybe get a GoldBug II.
      I tested 6 of my 9 machines on small pieces of lead down to 0.2 grams and the Tejon gave the best air test results (as expected as it is the highest freq. machine I have).  I was using the stock 8x9 concentric coil.  My question is - what would be the best small nugget coil for the Tejon?  My ground is 'hot' as my AT Pro normally ground balances at 94, so I think a double DD or 'widescan' would be best.  I am looking at the 5.75" widescan and the 10" elliptical widescan.  Would the 5.75" be significantly better than the 10" on small nuggets?  Should I be looking at the NEL coils also?
      Thanks in advance for any insight or help you can give.  I'm anxious to try my hand at gold detecting and want to get the best coil for the Tejon to give it a shot.
       
      Jon

      Tesoro declined to keep sponsoring the Tesoro Forum on Findmall so it has been renamed the Relic & Metal Detecting Forum 
      The explanation was posted here.
