Tesoro Lobo Super TRAQ Review 2018

The Tesoro LOBO SuperTRAQ metal detector is designed for gold prospecting. It will find both large and small gold nuggets down to nuggets smaller than a BB under good conditions. It will not find gold dust.

Because the LOBO SuperTRAQ is sensitive to all kinds of metals and has Discrimination circuitry, it is also an excellent instrument for finding different types of buried metal objects such as coins, relics, jewelry, etc.

According to Tesoro, the Lobo SuperTRAQ is the pinnacle of electronic gold prospecting technology, but then again they all say that!

The LOBO SuperTRAQ is a Transmitter-Receiver (TR) type detector that operates in the Very Low Frequency (VLF) portion of the Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum.

The detector uses three control knobs and two toggle switches to provide full VLF capabilities with fingertip adjustment of all controls.

The Tesoro Lobo SuperTRAQ gives you fast, accurate and reliable ground tracking in normal and severe soils and Tesoro’s famous discrimination circuitry lets you relic and coin hunt too.

The Lobo SuperTRAQ is simply one of the better gold nugget metal detectors on the market today. The SuperTRAQ’s Computerized Ground Tracking System solves the treasure hunter’s greatest problem-ground balancing.

No matter where you go metal detecting, the Tesoro Lobo SuperTRAQ will quickly self-adjust to eliminate minerals letting you find more gold with greater accuracy.

Discrimination circuitry with instant pinpointing makes finding that nugget or relic much easier.

The Tesoro LOBO SuperTRAQ comes standard with a 10” elliptical widescan searchcoil for best all-around performance with good rejection of ground mineralization—an important feature for gold prospecting. A variety of optional, interchangeable searchcoils are also available, further adding to the versatility of this metal detector.

The performance of this detector will satisfy the requirements of the serious gold nugget prospector and detectorist, whether experienced or a beginner.
