    Re: pinpointers

    I hunt with an Etrac with a Sunray Probe on it and also have the Garrett Pro Pointer. I would not be without the Pro Pointer. I actually prefer it to the Sunray Probe for pinpointing. The main reason I leave the Sunray on the machine is the fact that it makes coil changes about 10 times faster and easier. I would STRONLY advise you to save a few more dollars and get the Garrett Pro Pointer.

    So you dig with your pinpointer?
    What kind of digging?
    I dig with mine in bark chips in tot lots or dry sand but not in vingin soil.
    That must be pretty stong.
    Is there a garantee to use as a digger?

    Haven't had much experience with the others except for a cheap bounty hunter pinpointer, but I agree. The Garret works GREAT.

    I have a Minelab 35 and also a MarsMD pinpointer. The Mars unit is less than $100 and works very well. It's my primary pointer.

    Have heard others do not care for them but I'm happy with mine. True for most everything in detecting, I suppose.
    This an amazing tool that Charlie have referred to you. I use it too.

    And since my starting days it has never failed to detect accurately.

    Still using the F-Point some seven years later. Still works fine. (Though the Sunray FX-1 I have is better they are no longer available).

    I think there is a big variation in what people expect or want from a pinpointer. I want to know when I am within 3/4" of a coin and where it is in the hole. Like along the sides of the hole or bottom, or in the plug I tipped out. Some detectorists seem to expect or need 2" of range . . . but to me that is not "pinpointing".

    I don't know which to recommend, i have had 3 in the past few months?? sent 2 back to amazon within the first week of use, and opened another to try and dry it out, after a river adventure, only to completely wreck it.. All cheap orange pointers in the -50 ranges, they are pretty crap.
    Must buy another... will i learn ??

    The Garrett Propointer is the way to go.

    For something you will use, and depend on, so often,.........
    This is not the time to try to save a few dollars.

    The first one I bought,...... I bought with my "Finds Money".

    Oh, by the way, a good friend bought 3 used Garrett Propointers off ebay with hopes of making a couple of bucks.
    "All three wound up being "Counterfeit!"

    They are near useless.

    Buy a brand new one from a dealer.
    Comes with a warranty, and you will never regret the purchase.

    I've used both the Minelab Pro-Find 35 and Garrett Carrot (ProPointer AT) and they both work great.
