    I don't understand this method. For what is the screw driver? You pinpoint the object with Your MD, dig a plug and now You need the pin pointer to locate the object in the dirt. Some coins are 1/4 in diameter.... When using a screw driver to pull the coin out You probably scratch it. I can't speak for the pistol probe because i did not have any experience, but the Garrett works just fine!
    You have to get over the digging the plug or kill the hobby.

    Re: Which Pinpointer to chose???

    I don't want to take any chance of touching the coin which is why I much prefer to dig a plug. I have seen coins popped using a Lesche as well. Everyone has their own technique which they like and if using a screwdriver works for you then there is nothing wrong with that. I can see using the screwdriver in parks or ballfields where the finds are not very deep and you don't want to damage the grass. But a lot of my older coins are 6-8" deep and deeper and I have to dig a plug. Good luck with which ever choice you make. Just be good on how well you use your technique.

    Re: Which Pinpointer to chose???

    Pinpointers are a great thing for sure, no doubt. Someday I might spring for one, and if I do, we all know what brand it would be of course. If your soil is not like concrete, and you can pinpoint a target decently, and you learn how to determine depth accurately by audio response, and you learn how to cut and flip out a good clean plug, then you will learn to easily recover the targets without a pinpointer, quicker, and with less damage to the turf.

    Re: Which Pinpointer to chose???

    Just checked them out 4 days ago, My oppinion: Garrett Pro Pointer has Many great reviews*****. Wht's Bullseye has some button problems, Harborfreight has reports works at a cheep price but probe shaft breaks off. Eagle eye has great price and some with free shipping, BUT THEY DON'T LIST THE Mhz, even went on line abd distributor still NO Mhz listing but many bad reviews only detects to 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch, (A comment: you almost have to be touching it for it to detect. Bottom line, go with the Garretts Pro Pointer. Happy trails friend.

    Re: Which Pinpointer to chose???

    I have both the garretts and the whites bullseye II i prefer the whites a little more for a reason most will find petty, on the garretts you have to push the button to turn the pointer off after you locate your target on the whites just take your finger off the button. both are tough and well made, worth the money in time saved looking for items you've detected.

    yeah this is fun.........i love my job.

    Re: Which Pinpointer to chose???

    The Vibraprobe 580 is a very good pinpointer!! Uses vibration only. Won't draw attention to yourself at a park like other pinpointers that use audio signals. It is waterproof to 30 feet. No switches to break and has automatic shutoff after a minute of not being used. Just tilt the pointer upward to activate it. Sensitive only at the tip rather than the entire shaft. Great features there!

    Re: Which Pinpointer to chose???

    Garrett. Garrett. Garrett. And it has other uses. Electrician needed to tear into my plaster ceiling but forgot a stud finder. Out came my Propointer and the beams were located in seconds. Right when I bought the Propointer I tried it on my walls and against the Bullseye, Centec and Automax pinpointers I had. Only the Garrett could locate the nails in the stud. The other three couldn't even when I placed them right on the spot where the Propointer said the nail was. I figure I saved enough on the electrician bill to cover at least 1/2 the cost of the pinpointer.
