I use an X3. They are DEEP seekers. The only thing i dont like is they love big iron. Good machines.

Tesoro built the X-2 for Troy. I think Fisher assembled the X-3 and the X-5. I still have my X-5 that I use to back up my F75.

You are correct, the Troy Shadow X2 is basically a Tesoro Silver Sabre ÁMAX. The X2 is a good detector for sure but boy are they expensive. Steve.

The shadiow x2 was made for troy by tesoro from 1998-2001, you can use any of the coils that fit the micro max. we own 4 of them, there is no manual ground balance on them, no target id meter or multi tone id but at 2 pounds very light and is a great al day machine.If you have any questions about it shoot me an email
