Popular and best selling detector
October 08, 2007
Rafael the detector man at shiloh relics in tennessee says this is one of
his very best selling machines. It performs very well for finding silver
coins,gold and silver rings indianheads and wheat pennies. For 250 dollars
it packs apowerful punch.
THE BEST DETECTOR FOR THE PRICE!!

This is a wonderful machine! A lot deeper than expected. Runs very quiet
and discriminates very good. Get this,5.75 coil and the 9x8 coil and it
will be all you need for most hunting. This is the only machine I will be
using for a while. Thanks Tesoro!!
Enhance the performance of this wonderful machine

If you love this super little coin grabber.enhance its performance with the
9x8 and 10x12 coils. They cover more ground and go extra deep. You wont
have to buy a more expensive machine, it is comparable to the tejon and
Especially if you are on a budget.

The silver umax does a fine job on coin and jewelry and relic hunting. Does
terrific in competition hunts. I would like to see a frequency shift switch
added to this machine in case you run into another detectorist that has the
same frequency that you do or the same model of machine. All in all this
machine is a wonderful gadget.

I took the silver umax to the fairgrounds this week after the fair. Spent
four hours digging lots of coins.I can't believe all the coins that people
drop and not know it. This turn on and go detector does a fine job. All you
do is set the discriminate and sensitivity and start swinging.light weight
for hours of fatique free joy.
Even Better Than The Tejon
September 07, 2007
I'm a Tejon lover and often refer to it as the near perfect coin/ring/relic
However, recently I tested two old Silver Sabre detectors (I&II) and one
new model Silver uMax machine. I was blown away by the depth and smoothness
of these detectors! I had always thought of them as toys.
I'm finding targets just as deep or deeper than I found with the
The Silver is much smoother than the Tejon and you don't get all those
clicks, pops, chirps, etc., like you do with the Tejon set on maximum
sensitivity. The Silver sounds off with a nice clear mellow signal if the
target is worth digging. Not a lot of background noise like is often true
of the Tejon.
In our part of northern Michigan we have plenty of hot rocks and loads of
iron trash. The Silver is excellent at target separation with depth I'd
class with that of the Tejon or better. That Silver uMax stock coil is
perfect for hunting heavily trashed sites. It works like a rifle shooting
between the trash to hit hard on rings and coins.
Silver uMax expected coin depth with stock 8 inch coil would be 5 1/2 to 8
inches (depending on soil and coin size).
Expected coin/ring depth with 12x10 concentric web coil would be 8-12
inches deep. With this coil I'd say it beats the Tejon by inches even in
higher mineralized soils.
That's not bad for a $239 detector!
Tesoro Silver U-Max
September 02, 2007
I have had a lot of detectors in my day starting with the tek 8500,Mark 1
,3 ,1280 x fisher to name a few..When I got the silver Umax my arms felt
like they were in heaven do to the light weight of this machine..what I
can't believe is how it snips out the smallest of jewelry mostly
silver..One thing I need to get for it is a smaller coil so I can get
closer to the metal poles in the tot lots..The other thing that would be
nice to have is a inline probe maybe in time someone will come up with one
for this machine ..all I have to say it's one fine machine for the price

Simple in performance

I like the words around the discrimate knob the added max boost feature on
the sensitivity knob. I also like the toggle switch which has three
positions battery check..discriminate..all metal. Simplicity at its best
and turn on and go.

I like these good reviews on the silver umax. I have used mine for three
years now and have made some very good finds myself. I have found numerous
silver coins and lots of wheat pennies. Great detector for the price great
discrimination and sensitivity.
Tesoro Silver Sabre U-Max,with pinpoint button .
August 12, 2007
I bought this Tesoro Silver Sabre U-Max metal detector,with pinpoint button
back in September of 2001. This Tesoro Silver Sabre U-max hasn't let me
down! It's found a 1877 Seated liberty dime,1892 Barber dime,1916 Barber
dime, 4 silver Mercury dimes (1930's - 1944.), 1946,1955,1956,1957 silver
Roosevelt dimes, 1907 Indianhead penny, 1840 Novia Scotia large penny, a
skeleton key (silver) 10 inches in length,one women's 24 K gold wedding
ring with diamonds,14 K gold cross, 75 wheat cents (1913-1958), 1867
English Schilling (penny),numerous silver rings,necklaces,silver heart
To the people that say that this Tesoro metal detector can't find
gold...you are wrong! This Tesoro Silver Sabre U-max detector loves rings &
old coins! One week ago this Tesoro sniffed out 15 quarters in one hole
under a oak tree! The pinpoint button on this Tesoro is awesome! My friend
has a Garett treasure Ace 250, and he can't pinpoint at all with his
detector,50% of the time,he asks me to take my Tesoro over to his divot,and
use my pinpoint button on my Tesoro,to find his coins! This detector
rules!! Also a heads up on this Tesoro,if you put the sensitivity setting
at 10 or Max boost,you can go deep, but the detector tends to chatter a
lot. I read in my tesoro directions (owner's manual)that if the detector
chatters a lot at a high sensitivity setting (10 or max boost)lower the
sensitivity setting to around "6 or 7",that way you'll get all the coins
close to the surface,and this detector won't "chatter" a lot! Tesoro
technicians have even verified this with me over the phone. When you lower
the sensitivity settings to around "7 " you'll get a lot more coins! if
you still want your Tesoro to go deeper,adjust the sensitivity setting back
to "9 or 10",and switch back to around "7" to get coins closer to the
surface (shallow targets)! I hope this helps people out a lot!
