Tiger Shark Features
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
The Tiger Shark continues in the tradition of other great Tesoro underwater machines by
having interchangeable coils available. Along with the 8" coil that comes standard with
the detector, we also manufacture a 7" and a 10 1/2" coil.
