    Other Peoples Trash
    For me, it helps me find trash faster.

    Sounds silly, but it really helps me last longer before i get frustrated digging all the trash to a single coin.

    I borrowed a pinpointer to use for a few hours one evening, and the next day drove 120 miles to get one that was overpriced.

    Never be withough one again

    Mainly, it's the fact that you aren't grabbing handfuls of dirt to wave at your coil. There are bad things in holes sometimes times, razorblades, even medical syringes.

    When you see the time you are saving with a handheld pinpointer, they just make sense. Targets can fly to the side of a dig, happens a lot. By the time you pick up your machine a couple times, you could have located another good signal. Add in elements such as hot or cold weather, plus any time constraint for the hunt, a pinpointer is indispensable.

    A small silver dime, in a dirt clod about the same size, can wreck someone's patience level, who wants to wave dirt at a coil. jmho
