I picked up the Shadow X2 a couple of months ago, and really enjoy it. Yes, its made by Tesoro and is basically a modified Silver uMax. Its fast on recovery, easy to use and single tone & Tesoro stands behind it with a life time warranty.

I think the Shadow 3 and 5 are made by Fisher but not for sure. You can't go wrong on the X2 if you can find one that someone is willing to sell.

GB is factory set but can be adjusted (If Needed) on the inside or sent in for a tune-up. Tip is on the Troy web site. The discrimination is very good and I really like the Coin button which moves the discrimination to 7+ so if you coinshooting you know what to dig.

Check out all the tips & trick at www.troycustomdetectors.com

thanks! im looking for a backup machine for my tejon since i dont like packing the XLT through the woods. i was thinking of either a tesoro cibola or vaquero but i think the shadow may be the ticket.
