Have you considered a NEL snake? 

They may be able to supply with a 4-pin male plug to suit?

The original Tesoro Lobo and the Lobo SuperTRAQ are actually completely different detectors if I recall correctly. The original is an in-house design, whereas the SuperTRAQ was a Dave Johnson project on contract. I accidentally bought some of these old coils on a closeout once back in my business days. They would not only not work on the new SuperTRAQ due to the connector but it seems to me I found out simply changing the connector was not going to work either. I hate to tell you this now but I basically had to give them away to get rid of them. But that was years ago.

I am not swearing to this as I could be wrong. It’s just been too many years.

edit - just confirmed the above with this old thread at Findmall:

Rick the DD 5.75 tesoro is i think more versatile to try it is to keep it...........the only advantage of the snake is it s ability to move between rocks.....like a snake

      If anyone decides that they don't need their 6" coil any longer, please let me know!

      Looking for a true mono coil for my TDI.  I have the Super Pulse 350 that I could trade in too.  Like to have either a 12 or 7 1/2" mono coil if possible.

      I need to replace my current pinpointer (I think it's a Bounty Hunter), but I don't want to use a 9V battery with my new pinpointer. I will probably buy a Minelab Pro-Find, Fisher F-Pulse, Whites TRX or the Garrett Pro-Pointer AT (aka: the Garrett Carrot). But if I buy one that uses a 9V battery, it's staying in the package until I have a functional method or operating it without a 9V battery. Because using the Minelab or Garrett Carrot is my preference, I will plan on examining the feasibility of running either with AAA batteries (lithium, NiMH LSD and alkaline).

      Therefore, I need a pinpointer to work on when trying to size everything, but I don't want to work on a fully functional one, in case I break it during development. So I'm looking for anyone who might have any of the following pinpointers:

      Minelabs Pro-Find 35 (primarily)
      Garrett Carrot Pro-Pointer (maybe)

      I'm willing to pay $5 per propointer + your actual cost of shipping. I can pay via Paypal and will add $1 to cover the fee. If you feel a higher price is warranted, let me know why and I may be willing to give you more. For example, if you have a Garrett Pro-Pointer and the only thing wrong with it is a broken switch, I'd be willing to pay more than $5 for it.

      Oh, and I'm only looking for sellers in the USA (to save on shipping costs on my end, that's all).

      Thanks for looking!
