Most helpful review for Blisstool LTC64X v3

Its good for parks.
I recently purchased this Blisstool detector and have got out for few times now. So far what I have read is that no good for public parks or areas with a lot of trash, however I have gone to few local parks and some others in the Longview area and so far I have been successfully hunting with it.

On my first day out with it it took me little of time to set the ground balance correctly but once I tuned in it was just great. Down in Longview I found a silver earing about 7" down and on each target that I found I was rising the coil to see how dip from the coil will it see each target and I am impressed with the depth of this machine.

Each time that I have been able to use it's just little less hard to set the balance correctly and on the Manual mode it's just great to use it.
I have to said that If there are targets dipper than 12" inches this will get them with no problem at all. That same day I got a copper washer that was about 13" down and it sound loud and solid on each pass.

On my next trip to a different park in Vancouver I found a Nice 925 Italy silver pendent and few feet away I found the chain for it, the pendent was at 7" and the chain at 4".
So on my opinion it's a great detector, the only thing that I don't like is the fact that it's a single tone machine but the discrimination to nails it's great and compensates for the one tone future.
The discrimination is so good that it has a discrimination depth and it will discriminate correctly down to 10", more than 11" the discrimination is not so good but the tone will not be as good as with a non ferrous target.

Cortes
After using a Garrett GTI-2500 for over a year, I decided to buy a Tesoro Cortes. I bought the Cortes because I read that it was very light and went deeper than other detectors. Both are true. When I first used the Cortes, I fell in love with it and put away my Garrett.

At first, I was worried by the manual ground balancing in all-metal mode. But I found that ground balancing the Cortes is extremely easy -- if you're having trouble, then you haven't read the instructions. It took me less than one minute to do and is much quicker to do than to explain. And it's not even necessary if you use the discrim mode!

It detects much deeper than the Garrett -- I was finding targets at over 9 inches deep (bear in mind that the Cortes will detect targets over 9 inches deep, but the Cortes' display stops at 9 inches depth). Even in trashy areas, the target display didn't jump around that much; I was able to identify good targets easily.

Pinpointing is also very easy; making an "X" over a target a couple times in all-metal mode almost always zeroes in on it. But what really amazed me was how well it performed under high-voltage wires. Power lines always interfere terribly with my GTI-2500, even with the sensitivity turned way down. But the Cortes was totally unaffected, even with the sensitivity maxed.

If Tesoro could make the Cortes any better, I would recommend that they put the headphone jack on the back of the battery pack (instead of the electronics housing), and make the discrim mode multi-tone (to match the 9-bar display).

Even without my suggested "improvements", the Cortes is an excellent value and a pleasure to use. I strongly recommend it to both beginning and experienced detectorists.
