Don't discount this gem of a detector based on its price! The Tesoro Compadre was designed with the idea that less is more. This modest machine can do a lot of the same things that its bigger brothers can do. It works great for coin hunting, competition hunting and relic hunting, but it does it without any excess knobs. Switch on the detector and you're working in a silent search, motion all metal mode. The farther you turn the knob, the more discrimination you can bring to bear on those trashy sites. The Compadre now comes standard with a 5.75" round concentric coil, which also gives you the ability to get into and around natural obstacles like bushes, fences, and playground equipment. The Compadre is now available with an 8" round concentric coil. This coil will give you a slightly larger search area and better depth on larger targets.  We have made it easy for you...When adding your Compadre to the cart, simpy choose the coil that works best for you.   

The Compadre has it all, and is loved by both the new and experienced detector operators. One knob simplicity for the beginner and high gain circuitry and the famous Tesoro ED-180 discrimination for the advanced user. If one detector can do all of this, maybe less is more.
