In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Suggestions on how to choose a first detector for your (or somebody elses) child. 

Get a cheapie?  A top-of-the-line?  Something in between?  What about weight, and buttons and dials and knobs and meters? 

As you might guess from the photo, I think you should take a good look at the Tesoro Compadre. 

One thing I forgot to mention in the program - Tesoro is the only company that gives a lifetime warranty on all their detectors (no, they don't pay me). 

I also offer a quickie little exercise you can do with your child to help him (her) learn to use his (her) new machine efficiently.
