Tesoro Sand Shark Metal Detector
with 10" Search Coil and Lifetime Warranty.

Go Deeper with the 10 inch coil! It’s a simple fact, a larger coil will penetrate deeper in the ground and find more targets. The 10 inch coil is the perfect size for finding small gold rings, coins, relics and larger targets and will offer greater performance compared to a smaller sized coil. You will get better coverage and will be less likely to miss those much deeper buried targets!

Our new Tesoro Sand Shark metal detector with 10" search coil combines time-proven PI circuits with the latest digital technology creating the first microprocessor controlled PI detector for the new Millennium. Pulse Induction (PI) detectors have always been the natural choice for working wet salt beaches. Their circuitry and single loop coils will not see changes in salt-water conductivity that drive a VLF-style detector crazy.

The Sand Shark has two distinct operating modes: VCO and Normal. When working in the VCO mode, as targets get closer to the coil, the threshold generates a louder, higher pitched tone great for pinpointing. The Normal mode works with a single tone and is used for beach combing and other prolonged searches.

We’ve added a microprocessor to help you customize the detector to your specific needs. Our Pulse Width control allows you to tune your detector to the best balance of depth, sensitivity, and battery life. You can also change the Normal mode audio frequency. Simply use the "F" Adjust knob to set the tone and you’re ready to go. The Sand Shark also has a new drop-in battery compartment for quick and easy changes.

Great Detector!

Review by Michael C on March 10, 2014

I had been researching PI detectors for a while, and knowing my budget, my options were a bit limited. However, I heard some good things about the Sand Shark and decided it was worth a try. So far, I have not been disappointed! Picked mine up from the Kellyco showroom and headed home to St. Augustine. Tuning and set up was a snap and all the controls are easy to use. The different mounting options are nice. I went under the arm to keep the weight up high which worked for me. My first trip out didn't yield any gold or silver but I dug lots of clad, tent stakes and what I believe is a relic of some sort. It's being cleaned now. I picked up targets that were almost too deep to dig. It hit a tiny nut at 12 inches in the surf ! My only complaint is the coil is very buoyant and its a little tough to get used too. Other than that, If you're looking for a great PI detector at a great price, this is the one for you. Thanks and happy hunting!
