    Aug. 1 hunt

    Who wants to go sweat this Saturday morning? Got a few lots in town and fresh batteries. As usual, start early and go till lunch. Looking at meeting at the McD's on Broadway Dr about 6am, if that is good for ya'll. If anyone has another spot they want to put up, I am game.

    Cool. Might be out of town but don't know. My wife also has plans three Saturday's in a row in August, so I might not get to go much then. Might as well go when I can. Sadly, had to mail my pro pointer to the shop in Texas. I'm lost without right now. I guess I can always find a bloodhound to go with me...will see if I can make it. Thanks.
    Stop talking about it; get out there and do it! There's history to be saved!

    I want to go, but sadly I think wife might have other plans. If you do go until lunch, don't get too hot! I had to take a shower under the water hose to cool off last Saturday.

    Steve, if I am there, you can borrow one of my spares. I agree that hunting without a pinpointer is very difficult.

    Once we get thru the hot part of summer, then we can try some late afternoon/evening weekday hunts. Don't worry if you can make it this weekend, I know about keeping certain people at home happy, happy, happy. When we get a good hunt planned, then you can turn in your built up honey do credits.

    Thanks, Nick! If I go, I will likely have to take you up on that. I just contacted Garrett. They received my Pro-Pointer on 7/29, and said it will take 2 weeks. 2 weeks?! Ahhhhhhh! I can't go 2 weeks without a pin pointer now! From what I've read online, the Pro-Pointer is plagued with falsing issues, similar to mine. It sounds like you have to send them in for repairs every 6 - 8 months, so I expect the problems will come back after they fix it for me. I need to save up and get the new AT one (orange)...it supposedly addresses the falsing problems...now to convince the wife.

    That is about the same time it took for my White's TRX to go to Oregon and back.
    They ended up just issuing me a new one.
    If I am there, I will let you test drive that Orange Garrett AT spare I have.
    I also have some of those penny flips (so you can seal up those Wheaties).
    Just remind me, they are in my trunk.

    I love my Garrett Carrot! But anything is better than nothing... No fun without a pointer, especially when you hit a hole with over 16 pennies in it!!!

    Going to try to make it up there again sometime in the near future.


    Slad - Ive had to send my black garrett back twice for repairs.
    The best solution is to buy two, so you are never left without one.
    Some people prefer not to use one, but I love having one and hate to be without.
    There is a way to GB the pointer which might help with the falsing issue.
    Hold Pointer to ground, and while doing so turn on pointer = Ground Balanced.
    There are videos on youtube explaining this.

    I recommend spending the extra $25 and getting the new AT (orange) version as a spare though (if you go that route).
    I think that Hub City hobby (by Oak Grove High School next to Keister's BBQ) sells them.
    The price may be a little over the internet (plus taxes), but you can get one immediately.

    Thanks for all the input, guys.

    BP, I just learned about ground balancing a few weeks ago and tried that. It did help, but I still had issues.

    Nick, I have $30 in coupons usable at Kellyco staring me in the face...so I would likely buy from them to save a little $.

    Well, I love Garrett, and I would love to have the "carrot" (orange one). But the falsing I've experienced on the black one makes me leery. Not to mention, mine was giving the loud, crazy low-battery alarm (sounded like an ambulance) when the battery was fine! That was the last straw, was time to mail it in!

    So, my question is, what do y'all suggest?

    1. Minelab Pro 25 (very price, and NOT waterproof)
    2. Makro Pointer (waterproof and seems OK, but Turkish company?)
    3. Deteknix XPointer (Justin's favorite, and doesn't false...but not waterproof. I can't find the waterproof one online)
    4. Garret AT Pro-Pointer (#1 in my book, but scared of possible fasling)

    Thoughts?

    Since my wife hunts with me occasionally, we must have backups.

    Here are the ones we have:
    Garrett Original (Black)
    Garrett AT (Orange)
    White's TRX (this is the one I use the most)
    Vibra-Probe (vibration only, but can work up to 100 feet underwater).
    http://www.amazon.com/Treasure-Vibra.../dp/B0032D0ADO
    $17 Cen-Tech from Harbor Freight:
    Metal Detector
    Some people have modded these to deal with the high pitched sound, fix the power button, and to vibrate for $10 worth of parts, but these are for emergency use only.
