It will be sad if they're gone, they still have over a year of registration on their domain name,  just seeing how long they've had the name makes it very sad if they're gone.  Seeing they still have the domain it's likely their hosting is paid up until the expiry of the domain name as a lot of people just get a package deal especially for such a simple basic website so if they have pulled the website it's likely been done by choice, not due to a lapse of payment.

Well, not always. I pay my domain up in advance because I don’t want to lose it. I may switch service providers any time though and so pay as I go there.

The sites not closed down so to speak, the hosting is still operating, for example if you go to http://www.tesoro.com/info/about/ your web browser will download a file, if you open that file in notepad it's the "About Tesoro" section code of the website. 

You're too internet savvy to tie in your hosting to your domain name Steve 🙂 But the Tesoro website was about as basic as a site can get. It looked like they'd slapped it together in Dreamweaver some years ago in about an hour by some kid being paid with a free detector to do it for them 🙂

I already have all the Tesoros I need, hopefully they will keep finding me jewelry as long as I can keep digging!!!  I just happened to be looking for a certain coil and noticed that the Compadres seemed to be out of stock on the dealers websites that I usually deal with. I live in the US but am currently traveling in OZ, NZ and Japan for work.  That’s why I wasn’t sure about Tesoros website not loading, sometimes US sites don’t load properly from foreign servers.  But alas, it appears to be down and inventory appears to be quickly running out.  

Ive said it before but I am so glad that I learned detecting with a Tesoro.  I can confidently take a Mojave or Compadre into a playground after watching someone hunt  it with another machine and know there will still be targets that were too close to the posts for them to find with anything else. Just a shame that Tesoro never found a proper way to market their machines and educate the users.

Be nice if they posted something on their home page on what is going on. They had so many loyal customers they just walked away from. Certainly not how I would do business.

Tesoro website is back up but the navigation structure seems to be missing. Here is a direct link to the detector index.

Theres nothing on there about the Laser detectors they sell.

      Last July (July 2014) Tim Mallory of First Texas made a post on a Facebook page. First Texas is the parent company of Fisher, the well known detector manufacturer. Fisher used to make a pulse induction diving detector, the Impulse, but it has been discontinued. Fisher stands out as a company with strong VLF prospecting detectors but also as the only "Big 5" manufacturer without a PI detector of any sort in the lineup.
      2019 Edit - Announced as Fisher Impulse AQ
      Fisher was also a leader in multi frequency detectors with the CZ series but has rested on the laurels ever since, with no digital version of the old CZ3D offered to date. It has been common knowledge for some time that Fisher has at least been working on a new PI and a new multi frequency models.
      Facebook post by Tim Mallory of Fisher (excerpts):
      Tim Mallory - I'm new to your group. I'm head of sales and marketing at first texas products, which owns fisher, teknetics, bounty hunter and two night vision companies, night owl and nivisys. We've got a lot of exciting new products coming down the pipe, starting with the f19, introducing right now, then an upgrade for the f75, in the fall, and then new super weather resistant machines on the mid to low range, in the spring.... Lots coming....
      Joe Trino - Is the water resistant machine dual feq?
      Tim Mallory - Joe, no. They are replacements for f2 and f4. They'll be a lot of machine for the money...but not multifrequency. We have a mf in the hopper and it has recently moved from research to development, but it takes a long time to innovate a new machine of this caliber.
      Joe Trino - Tim I love my cz21 I have dug a lot of gold and silver with it my only complaint would be the shaft is flimsy and could beef up the coil wires and headphones I feel confident I can keep up with any mine lab machine about time for a new fisher pi unit.
      Tim Mallory - Joe, we have 15 seasoned engineers. Still it takes 3 to 5 years to get a new platform to the intro stage. Let me just say, a PI is in the works.
      Dusty Willis - So I was wondering.... When is fisher going to get into the pulse induction business and come out with a pi machine for gold to compete with minelab?
      Tim Mallory - Dusty, it's on the bench. But still in research...arguably close to development stage...someday we will have a kick ass PI.
      I notice Fisher getting grief on some forums for "being late" with the new machines. The fact is however there has never been any hint of a production timeframe from Fisher. Units are always under development, and many never see the light of day. Anything under development can stop or go at any time for any reason. There simply is no reason to expect a new pulse induction or multi frequency machine from Fisher until they make an official announcement that a release date is near. Still, one can always hope, and I hope we see something one of these days. I would certainly welcome a lightweight affordable PI alternative to what is currently available. The CZ was always one of my favorite detectors, and a more compact lighter CZ would also be welcome.
      But I am not holding my breath!
