    I have three I like...Deteknix X-Pointer, Makro and a Carrot. I've had very good luck and performance from all of them. The X-Pointer is the best bargain...if money's a factor.

    X-pointer is cheapest and best i have ever used.

    It's a PI pointer...doesnt false like my old Garretts.

    Profind 35. Discriminates. Ive had a bunch and i would exclude the fpulse if your using the nox or ctx. Makes them go nuts because it is a PI. Profind 35 and Garrett are great to use with the Nox.

    I used the black Garrett for about 2 years before it started to false pretty bad.. now I'm using the Garrett Carrot with the equinox and my mi6 with my deus..

    Had my Garrett Carrot for 2 years now and it's still going strong..

    I've owned the carrot and love it. I have another I don't even remember the name of that I just don't bother with, but keep it just in case this one ever fails. There have also been discussions on protecting the tip and you can look around for those discussions no matter what pin pointer you decide on. Look it up, read up on it, and check out you tube videos on it and others before you decide. BTW, it's just my opinion, but discrimination on a pin pointer isn't needed as your main detector will do that, but once in a hole go for all that ring up in it.

    Where's my manners? WELCOME TO TNET.

    I was also wondering about taping the first inch of the pro pointer AT then scuffing up and spraying it with some rattle can bed liner.

    You can cancel out the noise from the Fpulse on the Nox by doing a noise cancel with the fpulse turned on. That being said, I've tried the f pulse and a couple other standalone PPs and always go back to the carrot. PP discrimination is a gimmick where I find myself digging out the nail anyway if I am in the hole, just to be sure. Lol.

    I just wrap medical tape around the tip and it works fine for me. When the tape wears down, just take off the rest of it and re-wrap it with more tape. Medical tape is a cloth-like tape and I guess one could use a non-metallic duct tape too. Why risk permanent encasement on it when that could wear out and can be far more expensive than tape? BTW, would the spray react badly with the carrot's plastic? Why risk it?

    Honestly, I have no idea. I know they have paint made specifically for plastic but who knows what is out there. The tape idea sounds good too. Cheap for sure.

    If you have a Minelab Equinox I would suggest a Minelab Pro Find 35 pin pointer since it will interfere with it less. It and the Garrett AT Pro Pointer are by far the top 2.

    I love the TRX. I have owed two Garrett's they won't hold a candle next to the TRX. I recently had my TRX quit working I got it when they first came out so it was out of warranty. I called White's the mail me out a brand new TRX. All I had to do was send in my old one they shipped out a new TRX free of charge.

    I was sorting through some Mding equipment last night and gathered my pinpointers all up. Honestly, the TRX feels like a toy after holding the Garrett carrot and f-pulse.

    Minelab 35 controls are perfect for me, with the carrot i waste a lot of time on the settings. But they both work fine. 35 is big and the discrimination is not reason enough alone to buy it and the garrett seems tougher due to the one piece body but it came down to ease of use for me.
