    New video on pinpointing with the Ace 250

    This is my first ever video. I hope it will help some new hunters having problems with pinpointing. Let me know if it helps?

    Thanks KHouse, I already know how to pinpoint the ace 250 using a different method. However this video will be added to my library of helps for newbies using the Aces. Excellent Video.

    Re: New video on pinpointing with the Ace 250

    I have an Ace 250 and have been on hunts with others who had different machines. Finally realized it didn't matter what machine I had; I needed a bonafide pinpointer. I bought one and never looked back. You can wave that coil all you want to, but until you have a "toothpick" to stick down in that hole and zero in on something you can't even begin to reach (except vaguely), you're wasting your time. I absolutely love my pinpointer; it saves me lots of time and frustration. -Noodle

    I only made the vid for new hunters that are having some trouble. I can pp every which way on the 250 and zero in on the target. I know some people that dig huge holes and get frustrated. I too have an electronic pinpointer and wouldn't leave home without it.

    thats a great video for newbies to watch so they can learn how to "keep it small" in the general area to dig --to help stop them from an "cratering" an area --also a good pin pointer is great to have once you get down and dirty and digging -- often the coins are dark and hard to sort out from the dirt or in the nearby wall of the hole --- a good pin pointer is worth its weight in silver and gold --- Ivan

    My Mother wanted me to be a Doctor or Lawyer. I ended up digging clad coins in kids playgrounds.

    Great video khouse....I use the same method...but what I didn't realize is the small change in target location based on the depth of it.....I'll pay more attention to the difference next time out...looking forward to anymore videos you care to make...thanks

    Copperhead,
    I don't look at the display at all when pinpointing. Just use my ears. Then if you dig that 3.5 inch flap or plug you'll catch the deep or shallow coins by default. Most targets are surface to 4 inches anyway. One exception is if I get a low pinpoint tone before detuning I know it's either 6 inches deep or more. Or it's a tiny target. Sometimes it's hard to tell.

    I'm not looking at the display either when pinpointing...but I am digging a fairly good size plug which is why I assume, as you say....catching the coins by default....I do usually take a glance at the depth when getting a signal though...I wasn't aware that the depth effected the target postion under the coil when pinpointing.....I'm just curious to see if I can detect the subtle difference....while I'm typing...how high up are you running the coil cable along the shaft before you wrap it?...Yours looks like it goes quite a ways..thanks again

    I run the wire all the way up strait. Then right before it gets to the control head I put one single loop held to the shaft with a velco strap. I don't coil it around the rod at all.
