Tesoro Compadre Review
This is a complicated choice for a children’s detector, but it still has enough good features that you can consider getting it for your child.
- Two search modes
- Built-in mineral rejection
- 8-inch/5.75-inch search coils
The Tesoro Compadre is one of the lightest models around. Just 2.2lbs, so it won’t tire your child out. The issue is, it doesn’t have a digital display screen. This can make this detector more complicated than it actually is. In reality, all it takes is getting used to.
The lack of a screen means the Tesoro comes with plenty of pre-set features. It has built-in mineral rejection making it great for highly mineralized grounds and beach hunts.
You also get a choice between two search coils (8-inch or 5.75-inch). The smaller is more sensitive while the 8-inch gives more depth. Most importantly, the Tesoro Compadre is one of the most durable machines around, so you don’t have to worry about it breaking too soon.
