    Pin Pointers

    Why would you need a pin pointer if the detector has a pin point mode?

    you will be ten time more efficient once opening up the hole. Pin pointer is generally for finding object after digging plug.

    I won't even detect without one...it about the same as not having a shovel

    You would have to dig a very large plug if you were a little off when you pinpoint with a detector to get your coil on the side of the hole.

    I have found my invaluable, I REALLY try to pin point as accurately as I can but many times the target is in the sidewalls are the depth indicator was off, like D and D said, it's like a shovel, got to have it!

    You may dig the plug but still cannot see the find. Many of the finds/coins take on a dirt appearance and the hand held pin pointer will put you directly on that little dirt looking clod and you will pick it up and start to shout about the great item you just found. Many times I have put the item in my hand and had to rub the crust off to determine that it was something valuable. The pin pointer is a very necessary tool in my book.

    They help to Id those small 22 bullets & their 'Short' casings & small Iron that ( I just got to know what was giving me a signal). + it's a tad easier than running handfuls of dirt over your coil .
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    They aren't a necessity, I hunted my 1st 6 months without one, but it sure does speed up your target recovery time. As stated above by D-n-D, I won't hunt without one now.

    As Loco said, it speeds up your recovery time. If I'm in a park loaded with pulltabs and I decide to dig every pulltab, I can do so with the pinpointer in no time. That reduces my recovery time and eventually a Gold ring will surface because I'm removing every pulltab. Keep in mind if you come onto a site loaded with these buggers, that also means that everyone else left them and they are hiding the Gold!

    Another thought on this is your main machine pin point is like a road map, it puts you on the proper street and your hand held puts you to the front door of the house.
