    dont know if i had anything to do with it - but i wrote Garrett right after they came out with the regular black pinpointer and i water proofed mine
    told them if they made a water proof model they would sell tons - wrote them a few times
    and then ta da we got one
    i love mine for muddy farm fields

    Not often the case, depending on size of target, pin pointer definitely speeds up recovery.. Have mine on a retractable key ring attached to my belt loop. Use it for almost every scoop.

    Have a GC and use it all the time searching the sides and bottom of dug holes in dirt and when pinpointing very small things, like diamond ear ring studs, in the sand. I'm lost without my pointer and find it a real time saver in dirt and in sand. Gone through half dozen pointers in past few years; lost 2 out of back of truck, had 3 Fisher F pulses all fail, even bought a Chinese knock-off to compare to GC, it doesn't. I find the Garrett Carrot one of the best all around pointers that is waterproof on the market.
    Now that Wife is happy with large diamond ring found last year, I search for happiness and find it every time I go metal detecting.

    For me, not concerned with losing, its convenience. Sometimes back in the pocket, sometimes let it hang depending the situation

    I currently have 2 pinpointers, the carrot and the one from the makers of Simplex.
    That one is nice but it is a behemoth, dwarfs the carrot, which I considered large until now. It has the coil attachment which I can see coming in handy in certain situations but have not used it yet.
    Am tempted to try a minelab but a slew of negative reviews about its durability and ergonomics always makes me think twice. Deus pinpointer looks nice and would be a no brainer if I has a Deus [used to], but I think its overpriced for someone who doesn't have a Deus and it was pretty much tailor made for deus owners.

    Carrot has seen nearly 5 years of rough use and still going strong. Had to do 2 speaker replacements, very easy and cheap. I'm thinking sand/dirt/moisture must be creeping in and eventually fries the little piezo speaker.

    At the beach, if it's going to fall through the holes in my scoop then I don't want it anyway.

    Fired off a couple questions to Kellyco, here is the reply.

    "Here is the answer to your question posted on March 25, 2021 regarding Garrett Pro-Pointer AT Waterproof Pinpointer.

    Question:
    I have a Minelab 800, will this pin pointer pair up to the Minelab wireless headphones? also I see another Garrett Pin pointer, what's the difference?

    Answer:
    It will not pair with the 800, Z-lynk technology is different than Bluetooth. At this time there is not a pinpointer that will pair with the wireless headphones. One Garrett pinpointer has Z-lynk, one does not.

    Thank You,
    Kellyco Metal Detectors"

    bummer too as I was really wishing I had one with me this weekend, spent some time fighting a couple holes.

    I'm guessing you didn't ground balance it? A lot of people don't realized that the Carrot's can and should be ground balanced at saltwater beaches.
