well i'm up to 4 detectors now. just won a brand new in the box Deleon on fee bay for 370.00. have been wanting a Tesoro for a while and have been saving for a Vaquero but couldn't pass up on the Deleon, I really like the TID screen. the question i have is will I like it better than my Xterra 70? I hunt quite a few places that have lots of iron in the ground and my Xterra just wont discriminate it out, was told that the Tesoros are great on masking iron around good targets. I hope so.

Do what I do. . . don't tell her. I am buying a new coil for my detector. I feel I deserve it, since I've been working so much, I don't have time lately to detect.
Well, I have earned this coil, but my wife probably won't believe it.

In any case, good luck with your new detector. Hope it works great for you.

For $50 I promise that I won't say a thing. :lol:

I predict that you and the Tesoro will become fast friends.

Good luck with the new detector!

Late question

the question i have is will I like it better than my Xterra 70? .
That is a question I would have asked the forum before I started bidding. I always recommend before you buy another detector is do a comparison and see if your moving up in the hobby, or sideways and just getting something that duplicates what you already have.

With the wife, "sometimes it is easier to ask forgiveness than permission."

Actually he did ask, me. I own both and told him my feelings, Beale.

I asked a few people and even called a dealer that sells and uses both machines. momma didn't raise no fool. :smile:

Hey Sorry!

I just saw it for the first time in the start of the thread. So I thought it was a new question. The good news, is if your wife asks you where you got the idea to get another metal you can show her this thread, and throw everyone under the bus. :rofl:

We can take the blame for you.

we've been together a very long time, she doesn't bother saying anything any more, just shakes her head and walks away. :biggrin: ( it pays to give them the good jewelry finds)

Us guys don't snoop around as much as the little women do .....We mind our own business .....You would REALLY be surprised to see how much SHE spends on any given week !!.... When my folks got older , and had to do financial planning , and my father had to take over the check book as my mom had to go into a nursing home .....He almost had to go there too after seeing how much money my mom pi_ _ _d away !!!..... Us guys are NOT alone when it comes to spending ..... and it IS a lot easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission .... Live for today , for tomorrow may never come !!....Jim

Deleone vs Xterra

I had a Xterra 30, (not a 70),and the Deleone is faster in response time than the Minelab..However,minelab meter seemed less jumpy,more accurate..But Deleone seemed lighter than Minelab..They both pinpoint well,with edge going to Minelab..Minelab deeper on silver,Deleone probably better for small gold..BOTH ARE VERY GOOD DETECTORS!
