Tesoro Cibola

The Tesoro Cibola is the perfect metal detector for treasure hunters who have grown tired of having to fiddle around with too many controls and on-screen menus before enjoying their day. It has all the essential controls for Threshold and Sensitivity, as well as three different frequency positions for noisy EMI issues.

Discrimination levels are also easily tuned to reject trash and iron via one of the large control dials. An ED 180 discrimination circuit makes it an extremely accurate and powerful machine. Switch the Cibola to All Metal mode to pinpoint exactly where targets are buried.A dedicated Pinpoint button allows quick access to the All Metal mode allowing you to quickly lock on to viable finds.

Targets are identified via audible tones which have varying pitch with its Voltage Controlled Oscillation technology. The built-in speaker provides excellent audio feedback, at the same time, a headphone jack is provided for more private treasure hunting trips.

The Cibola uses a 9 x 8 inch elliptical search coil and runs at 14 kHz. The coil can be used in fresh and salt water. The metal detector’s shaft length is adjustable and can be knocked down into 3 pieces for convenient storage. It is extremely lightweight weighing in at only 2.2 lbs making it easy to use for almost anyone.
