Default Fisher F2 Versus Tesoro

I currently have a Fisher F2 and am thinking about a second detector/upgrade.

Is the Tesoro Silver uMax (micromax) basically a smaller version of the F2, but with dials instead of buttons, no pinpoint and only uses one 9V battery?

Also, how much better is the Outlaw or Vaquero over the F2? I believe you can adjust for ground balance and threshold with either, but what else can the Outlaw or Vaquero do that the F2 can't?

Thanks!

Detects deeper and they're faster.

Faster as in better recovery speed? Also, are we talking about the Vaquero and Outlaw or also the Silver uMax?

Yes, a faster recovery speed. The silver same depth but faster. OL and V both faster and deeper. I have a F2 and it's nothing special. Even though digger did well with it others have done well with a bounty hunter tracker IV.

Thanks!
