Hi, quick intro as I thanked a few comments today. A newbie without a detector as yet but looking at Tesoro as analogue appeals and on a strict budget. SW England but starting in Normandy.

Hello...I am in Normandy. You say starting....have you a permission over here or are you thinking of beaches?
Tesoro is a good starting machine and I had lots of success with mine. I had a Tesoro made for the French market called a Tesoro L'Invincible. Very nice machine to use and light too. Unlike many Tesoros it had different tones which helped distinguish between signals for Iron and for the good stuff.

Hi all, great to get your messages. Some answers to questions: location in England - not too far down, in Exeter for now. Normandy - well, we're (two of us) thinking of various bits of land that friends own though we haven't asked yet (not listed sites - that would be a bit silly really ... we've also had the warnings from the Fr detector shop and subsequently read the threads on this forum). And a Laser Rapier II is the machine on which I'll get going, an occasional lend from a friend so I have a feeling the Tesoro will be coming along sooner rather than later. Good to know about the Invincible. :D

Hello Ciara and another::g Welcome aboard the forums. I'm sure you will get on well with a Tesoro regardless of the model you choose, they have been and still are in some quarters regarded as a very capable lightweight, no nonsense machine. My Eldorao is still in use as a back-up despite it's 30 yrs in service. Good Luck and I hope you both enjoy your time with us on the forum.
