    Garrett Pro pointer?

    OK so been detecting for a very short while. I currently have just a small hand held that came from harbor freight that I use to pin point with. I was wondering if the Garrett pro pointer is worth the money or not? Any advice would be much appreciated thanks.

    My own experience, I won't even think of hunting without it. Imagine having to hand crank your automobile to start it, then you see a car where a guy gets in and pushes a button and the motor starts up and he drives off, ask him if he wants to go back to hand crank...

    Plus now I'm so fast, I've got a routine, and it takes me on average 1-3 mins from pp on metal detector and deciding "dig it" to in the pouch and swingin' the coil again.

    Dusty...BUY ONE...you will never use another propointer again...and you will never leave the house without it...

    If you are driving to go metal detecting and realize 20 miles down the road you forgot it.......It is the one item that will make you turn around and go back and get

    OK Hey thanks so much. It really does help having so many people on here who are willing to help. Folks that "have not arrived " but they remember what it was like when they first started. I really do appreciate the input. EBay has them I think around the $125 mark so guess we will proceed forward with the purchase.

    Garrett Ace 350, Garrett AT PRO, and Garrett Pro Pointer. Hope to one day be good enough to justify buying a Whites V3Xi.

    I was at a park yesterday that prohibits md'ing but I just casually relaxed in a picnic spot with my garret pp doing side scans where I sat, with my thumb over the speaker. If it went off I'd just run my fingers through the grass, not digging or anything, and found some coins as well as misc trash laying right up on top.

    Not disturbing the ground at all.

    absolutely, the garrett pro pointer is the only way to go. If you are patient, you can pick up a good used one on ebay for around 100 bucks.....worth every penny.

    Only bad thing I can say about it is it will not detect fire ants so when your down in ur hole be sure to look at your other hand that's kinda scooping dirt out to make sure there isn't a hundred ants on it lol
