Tesoro DeLeon Metal Detector
with 9x8" Concentric Search Coil and Lifetime Warranty Plus FREE Metal Detector Shipping

The DeLeón is a Target Identification Detector or T.I.D. The DeLeón is designed as an easy to use, turn-on-and-go detector. The faceplate has only four controls: Sensitivity, Discriminate, Threshold and a Mode Switch. It uses the same circuitry as the Cortés, so you can expect the same depth and sensitivity from the DeLeón that the Cortés is well known for.

The DeLeón's display screen is one character high by eight characters wide. It is larger and easier to read than the Cortés display but does not carry as much information. Starting from left to right on the faceplate, you will see that the DeLeón has a Coin Depth reading, a five segment bar graph and a two-digit Target ID Number. The bar graph shows several categories for ID purposes, but we recommend that it be used with the ID Number for the most accurate information.

Review by Jim H on December 10, 2013

The DeLeon is my fourth detector. And I love it! Simple to operate and an overall a very nice detector.

Swapped it out for a White's DFX. Glad I did.

Although the DFX was a fine machine, it was too chunky.

Also you just can't beat Tesoro's lifetime warranty. And we know for a fact that Tesoro makes good on it.

Several years ago while swinging a site in North Carolina where a confederate train carrying a paymaster's load was derailed into a river by the union army, we slipped on the muddy banks and into the drink -and so did our detector!

It stopped working and we mailed it off to them. They fixed it up, cleaned it like new and sent it back in just days, along the repair bill -ZERO!! True story.
