Sent my MX Sport in for repair, rear plastic housing cracked. I had taped it together to use it in the Rye Patch nugget shoot,(worked fine, and I found a token:)) Whites sent me a new one, even came with new headphones! That's one of the reasons I have two Whites machines. Thank you again Whites.

Rick Kempf passed this to me and it does not look like good news. It is being reported most of the people at Tesoro have been laid off.
Tesoro was not a real old company, since it was founded in 1980, actually making it the newest of the major U.S. manufacturers. Still, the company made its mark with lightweight, high performance detectors. Tesoro was also noted for many years for its exceptional support of the independent metal detector dealer. However, that policy changed after founder Jack Gifford passed away in 2015 and the company seems to have been on cruise control ever since.
There are probably not too many people surprised by this, but if true it marks a sad day in metal detecting history.
Seeing and hearing about these new detectors is very exciting, it seems almost all the other detecting companies have simply stopped innovating!?
It’s very excited about the simultaneous multifrequency detector Nokta/Makro have mentioned, I just hope the first iteration of their SMF detector is waterproof and preferably below the magic number of 3m/ 10ft all other manufactures stick too.
Ive already entered the naming and featured contest but am considering having another crack at it 😂
What do you want to see in this detector that you’ve been wishing for years for in other detectors?
