The Tiger Shark uses microprocessor technology to create a true dual function machine. In Normal Mode it works like any other Tesoro detector. It uses the same great ground balance and discrimination features that made the Bandito and Eldorado 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. We all know that working in wet salt areas is different than working in any type of dry area. This 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 Normal Mode. There are no special controls or techniques to remember. When working on a salt water beach, just switch to Salt Mode, adjust the ground balance and start hunting!
