Even Better Than The Tejon
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 Tejon.
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 Sabre U-Max,with pinpoint button .
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!
