Yep, they are some good ones. I had the same combo several years ago. FOund one of my favorites finds with the silver sabre umax. Very good units. It is a shame they went under.

I've seen a lot of Norm's equipment and he keeps it all clean enough to eat off of. I think it all gets washed and waxed after every outing.

Bandido 2 μMax still gets used plenty. Just found this yesterday in a field that rarely gives up anything.

Very nice combo Norm. I just added the Compadre and Mojave to my collection.

I love the Tesoro Detectors. I have 2 of them the Tejon and the Deleon. The Tejon so far has found a 1909 penny and a tiny little bell both at 15 inches down. These detectors are light weight, compact and very easy to set up.

Hey Tim, did Tesoro go out of business?

Yes they have and also the building has been sold as well. Who knows what will become of the place now. It would be cool if another company picked up where they left off.
