Treasure Commander Si Robertson TC2X Metal Detector
The TC2X metal detector is packaged is a similar fashion to the other detector in this series. Duck Dynasty camouflage and distinctive pictures make for an interesting presentation. Just like its little brother, the TC2X was very easy to assemble. Attaching the upper shaft to the lower shaft was competed with one simple motion and the shaft of the detector was ready to receive the coil wiring. Using the conveniently supplied pull cord made getting this model into the field a breeze....

Test Team Field Tests EXcelerator Coils
Only two teams of two-people each were selected for the "First" test-run. We selected two parks that are 5 minutes away from the Kellyco Building. Each park has been absolutely positively detected "to death" by our Test Team and customers living in this area. We decided as tough as these parks were it would be a true test of these new search coils....

SEF Field Test Report
When metal detector manufacturers design a detector, they choose a coil that will work well under a wide range of conditions -in terms of ground mineralization as well as target concentration and depth. What experienced hunters have come to realize is that there is no one perfect coil for all conditions -at times a smaller coil will pull valuables from amongst trash a larger coil cant while at other times, a larger coil will reach targets that might otherwise have been missed. In addition, there are times when a Double-D design will work better than a concentric de...

Whites DFX Metal Detector Field Test Report by JW
Whites Electronics Newest metal detector the DFX is definitely one of the BEST detectors I have ever used. I spent a lot of time with the XLT Spectrum series and thought that was the best detector available at that time. I personally sold many hundreds of this model to my Kellyco customers. However when I was given the opportunity to test and use the new DFX I was tremendously impressed. I really put the DFX through some tough hunting in the woods and scrub brush where relics were cleaned out years ago to beaches and even in shallow wat...

Whites DFX Metal Detector Field Tests at Kellyco Metal Detec
I finally got to take my new Whites DFX out for a test on Saturday. The first place I tried was a high trash area. Along side an old railroad bed, it must have been a site where some maintenance or some metal work occurred. I dug lots of aluminum and copper. Learned a lot about the detector though, especially the preprogrammed coin mode. I havent finished that site yet. But will probably shift to either the DP-Silver or Hi-Trash mode next time. The second site I tried was much cleaner very little trash. Coin mode worked great there. I managed to find 24 cents in ...

The Viper Trident All-Purpose Detector
Searching for valuables lost in the water has been a passion of mine for more than 30 years and it is truly one of the last forms of treasure hunting where valuable targets are continually being replenished in areas that are searched on a regular basis. After all, if a Civil War campsite or old picnic grove is hunted by experienced detectorists, the number of finds will continue to drop until there is really nothing left to find. On the other hand, a popular beach will have a new &ldquocrop&rdquo of coins and jewelry deposited after every warm weekend, prov...

Tesoro Lobo Super Traq Metal Detector Field Test Report by G
The date had been set and all the plans were made-except one-what kind of detector should I take to Quartzsite, Arizona to hunt for gold nuggets. I own several general purpose detectors, but I wanted to increase my odds of locating a lot of those hard-to-find nuggets and we all know that requires a bona fide nugget detector....

Tesoro Golden &muMax Metal Detector Field Test Report by Ben
Since Tesoro introduced the Golden &muMax, detectorists have been using it to recover coins and similar targets from trash-laden parks. In this field test you will see how finding good targets among the bad is made easier with the ingenious features of the Golden &muMax. Like its predecessors, the Golden Sabre and Golden Sabre Plus, the Golden &muMax utilizes notch discrimination to zero in on the good targets while eliminating many of the bad. Additionally, four tones of audio target identification have been added to separa...

Tesoro DeLeón Metal Detector Field Test Report by Ron Barne
This report began with a phone call from James Gifford of Tesoro Electronics asking me if I would be interested in doing a report on their new I.D. detector—the DeLeón. Would I? Show me the detector!...
