|The Tesoro Compadre was designed with the idea that less is more. This modest machine can do a lot of the same things that its bigger brothers can do. It works great for coin hunting, competition hunting and relic hunting, but it does it without any excess knobs. Switch on the detector and you're working in a silent search, motion all metal mode. The farther you turn the knob, the more discrimination you can bring to bear on those trashy sites. The Compadre now comes standard with a 5.75" round concentric coil, which also gives you the ability to get into and around natural obstacles like bushes, fences, and playground equipment. The Compadre is now available with an 8" round concentric coil. This coil will give you a slightly larger search area and better depth on larger targets.
The Compadre has it all. One knob simplicity for the beginner and high gain circuitry and the famous Tesoro ED-180 discrimination for the advanced user. If one detector can do all of this, maybe less is more.SPECIFICATIONS

I hit an Urban park with this easy to use Detector for 7 hours Put it at the Max Disc and just walked around picking up coins its so light you can swing it all day and at Max if you get a solid hard Beep! Pop that coin up and keep moving! Depth is only 4-5 inches but it finds Everything in that depth. Great Starting Detector!

I was recommended to rt6 from a Customer Service Relations Specialist of Tesoro Metal Detectors. I contacted David regarding the 2 our family we would like and it was nothing but POSITIVENESS! David was very professional and just an overall awesome guy to talk with over the phone, I believe we chatted for about 20 minutes. After the conversation a few days went by and I ordered 2 of his metal detectors. Both came with a lifetime warrant, shipped in sturdy boxes and arrived quicker than expected. David asked me several questions over the phone to pinpoint the exact detectors our family needed instead of focusing and selling us an expensive detectors. H added in a few other items for free because he really wanted to take care of our family. He met all of our expectations and then some! We are definitely going to buy again from him. Thank You very much for your professionalism and generosity for the items.
