Tesoro Tiger Shark Metal Detector
with 8" Search Coil and Lifetime Warranty.

The Tiger Shark uses microprocessor technology to create a true dual function machine. In Normal Mode, the Tiger Shark works like any other Tesoro detector. It uses the same great ground balance and discrimination features that made the Bandido series so successful. On land, the Tiger Shark can be used for coin and relic hunting and even gold prospecting. By using the four controls on the outside, you can fine tune your detector to handle whatever conditions you are working in.

Working in the wet salt areas is where the Tiger Shark outshines the land detectors. In land conditions, the most crucial adjustment is using the ground balance to tune out mineralization. In wet salt conditions, changes in the conductivity in the sand cause most of the problems. The Tiger Shark uses a completely different set of internal settings in the SALT Mode than in the NORM Mode. There are no special controls or techniques to remember.

Tiger Shark

Review by Patrick . on September 02, 2014

Great, simply great. In comparison to other users with other brands it is quality, nothing less than quality. From head to tone, turn on and go, beep and dig... no time to waste, no extras, no digital screen, no target ID, tone ID... and with that retro look, and not with that Star Wars kind a look... never the less, it will find you stuff others don't.

Best Underwater Detector You Can Buy

Review by Richard M on September 03, 2013

I have owned this detector for over a year and I must say you won't find a better detector for fresh water. Built like a tank, able to find a gold as small as a piece of thread. If you're doing water hunting mostly in fresh water and some salt water, and you want the best detector around, you just found it. I can honestly say you will never be sorry you bought one.

Tesoro Tiger Shark

Review by Paul H on August 28, 2013

With 30 years of experience I have tried many detectors, but for the water, fresh or salt - the Tiger Shark is a great machine. We took it to Bermuda and did great in the salt water. Easy to tune and waterproof to 200 ft. Plus with the lifetime warranty it's a no brainer... great detector, good job Tesoro.
