Most helpful review for Headhunter Pulse

Headhunter Pulse
I recently purchased a pulse headhunter detector to use in the carribean on vacation to hunt for rings and coins. I live in colorado and won't be going on vacation for a couple of months.

I took the detector to a nearby park where they have sand around the playground equipment. I found a penny at 7 inches and a 3 inch long nail at 13 inches. I planted a ladies gold ring at 6 inches and received good tone, a man's gold wedding band at 10 inches and a nickel at 13 inches. These gave good hard repeatable tones, something you would definately dig.

I couldn't get good hard repeatable tones deeper than these depths. I was very impressed with this detector and the depths it gets. I have been detecting for about 14 years and have owned 8 other detectors.

I am posting this review because i couldn't find very much information on this machine before i purchased it.

Most helpful review for Tesoro Sand Shark

Simply the best.
I've been using the Tesoro Sand Shark for nearly a year now. It is hands down the best salt water machine on the market. From Jan 1 2011 until now, May 19 2011, I have found 105 rings. (26 gold, 35 silver, 44 junk). That does not include the 3 gold necklaces, or the multitudes of silver necklaces and bracelets found, nor the droves of earrings, both gold and silver.

I hunt typically 4 days per week. Many of my hunting pals use the excal. The Tesoro Sand Shark outperforms them with regularity. It is deeper than the Excal, even with the 8" coil.

It is super sensitive and does find the small gold that the excal, and most of the rest, can't.

There is no discrimination on this machine. It is a straight PI machine. You will dig trash and iron. Just like the rest do. Excal will null on iron which is nice, but now that the Bobbi pins are made of non-iron material, that feature is now worthless.

Do yourself and your wallet a favor. Get this unit. You'll not be disappointed and you'll have the finest PI machine on the market.

Did I mention the lifetime warranty? LIFETIME!
