Most helpful review for Tesoro Tiger Shark

Tesoro tiger shark
I have used the Tiger shark for 2 years. Very sensitive will detect deeper than the Sting Ray but I use both of these detectors when I go hunting. I like the interchangeable loops. Still getting use to the Tiger Shark so far have found 12 gold rings. I like the Tiger Shark or the StingRay better than I did the 1280x fisher. I might try the CZ 20 some day but I do like the Tesoros. G G G

Most helpful review for Whites Beach Hunter ID

Whites Beach Hunter ID
I own/have owned several top of the line water detectors and am liking White's Beach Hunter ID more each day! While it is not quite as stable as others, I tend to find things with it! It seems to have lots of sensitivity. So running the sensitivity too high is a mistake at times. I have found dimes up to 11 inches! I think the 9.5" coil is just right. However it should be a weighted spider coil design for better water hunting. The headphones are top quality and comfortable. The detector is well balanced and feels light.

I do not like the all metal/disc/reset toggle switch as it pops out of all metal at the slightest touch. White's confirmed that this is the way they are. Well, I say choose a better switch White's!!! I also do not like the battery closure device... a thin rubber O-ring that tears. I think White's can do better than that!
Best of all I love the light and tone I.D. All of the gold rings I have found give the same nice medium tone and a yellow light. Each time I get a solid medium tone and yellow light while hunting, I get excited and start seeing gold! So I guess this detector excites me and makes detecting fun!

I also like its bright yellow cheerful color. Somehow it makes me feel better! Perhaps it reminds me of gold?! Just dig all those yellow and blue signals... some gold rings close to the coil give a blue light/high tone. If you want one, buy it! Good Hunting!
