I bought my Tesoro Lobo to look for gold in places where gold has been found. And for that, it is an excellent detector. This machine is not for coinshooting or relic hunting - that is a mistake people make when they buy gold detectors for detecting anything but gold. However, the Tesoro Lobo has great programming that allows you do other activities, but a gold detector is for detecting gold!

Great for Gold

Brad in Southern CA , USA - best

The Tesoro Lobo Supertraq is an excellent detector offering exceptional depth targeting on small non-ferrous targets. I have successfully located small gold nuggets in normal and highly mineralized soils in the mountains and deserts of southern California and Arizona. I have used several different brands and types of detectors in the past and I prefer the Tesoro Lobo “Supertraq” to all previous detectors I have owned.

Lobo Supertraq Great Machine

Guest in Australia - best

I have had my Supertraq for along time and it has proven to be an excelent gold and coin detector.
It has extremely good ground tracking ability and even works in quite highly iron mineralised ground, it detects very deep in the all metal mode and is fantastic on small gold nuggets.
The Supertraq main function is that of a gold detector and if I was looking for gold in zero to moderatly mineralised ground I would choose this machine over ANY PI detector, it is vastly superior on small and large gold in these conditions. There is a good range of coils available both DD and Concentric.
I feel sure that prospectors searching the Alaskan low mineralised rivers where there is still plenty of nuggets to be found would agree that VLF detectors give better results in those areas than PI machines.
