Most helpful review for Makro RacerOutstanding detector
The Makro Racer is the third metal detector that I own and use. I am amazed by the quick response of this unit while working in trash. The depth of recovery is unlike any machine that I have hunted with. I'm finding coins at 18 to 20 inches and I know it will do even better. It's very easy to use. It's very sturdy build but very light weight so you can hunt all day.

Most helpful review for Tesoro VaqueroBest Tesoro ever
It is more stable than a Tejon and gets the same depth.
If you don't have a Tejon and want a new Tesoro i would buy a Vaquero.I just like the fact that it's more stable, uses just 1 9 volt battery, has frequency shift and gets the same depth than the more expensive Tejon.
But some may still like the Tejon better since it has a Slow Auto-Tune All Metal AND a FAST Auto-Tune All Metal Mode; Dual Disc and longer Battery life.
I didn't like the battery doors on the Tejon.They gave me the feeling that i have to send the detector in for repair after a few battery changes.Otherwise the performance of the Tejon i had was great.
The Tejon and the Vaquero/Cibola aren't much more deeper than an Eldorado on higher conductive targets like dimes and pennys (About 1 to 2 inch).But they will go much deeper (about 4 inch) than an Eldorado on low conductive targets like nickels and goldrings.
For now i think the power vs price of a Vaquero/Cibola is hard to beat.
I didn't super tune sweet spot test, i did it the way the airtest is described in the manual.I think 13 inch on a nickel and about 10 on a dime is great.
I believe you can get more out of that detector by super tune sweet spot airtesting but i didn't do it to compare it to other
Tesoros under same air test conditions.
Did some more air testing today with the 5.75 coil.
Disc was between iron and 5c, sens at max.
Dime 9 inch , Nickel 10 inch with a 5.75 coil !!!!!!!!!
That's what my Eldorado gets with its 9x8 standard coil.
I am glad i bought that coil with my Vaquero.
I am impressed.There is no detector in the price range that can beat that new Tesoro.This is the detector i wanted, thanks Tesoro.
