    My go-to, a Deteknix X-pointer, is five yrs old and still going strong. Have a Carrot for back-up and a Nokta for a loaner.

    I have a lanyard on mine now too. I lost my black one at a club dig, on the sand, next to salt water. Three weeks later the club goes back and someone finds it and gives it to me. Had to send it to Garrett and they fixed and shipped it back for $50. If I remember correctly. I still have it.

    Was thinking about getting one but my pro pointer still works just fine. Any issues I've had were battery-related.

    I noticed something recently after using bluetooth headphones with my Equinox 600 and then switching back to wired headphones.

    When you turn the carrot on, make sure you are not close to the headphone wire.

    I had great consistency in my pinpointer with the bluetooth, but with the wired headphones, I was having to reset the thing constantly and I finally figured out it was because I was turning it on too close to the wire and it was throwing off the ground balance.

    Might be a metal detecting 101 rule, but I had never though of it until I switched back for a day.

    Alot of people dont read the manual on all the settings and how to balance and if you put it in the hole by the target turn it off then back on it will pin point more accurate they can be tricky if you get it out of adjustment

    NOKTA. Im not brand loyal, but I can say that Ive hammered mine. It comes with two protective sheaths (wore a hole in one so far) and has been pretty bullet proof. Has LED, sound/no sound/ vibrate (my favourite because its quiet) waterproof to 1 meter.... etc. 5 years old this year

    it May be Flattened or Gone causing your Battery to be Loose.

    Stick a Couple Quarters, a Dollar Coin or Better a Thick Rubber Washer in there
    to hold your Battery Tighter.

    See if that Helps

    I've done that to a Sunray Probe on my Sovereign.
    from ground scrubbing.

    I Used Hot Glue to Fill it in.

    later they invented Caps for the Ends that work like a Coil Cover

    I have the TRX as well. It was a toss up between the white's and the Garrett. Both are good and should serve anyone that uses them well.

    Best pinpointer on the market in my opinion. Durable, Killer range (3"-4+") matched only by the F-Pulse or Tek-Point, and with replaceable shells for $40. Can't beat it. Until pinpointers can discriminate effectively (what a disappointment the ProFind 35 was) and get the range of these, I can't see using anything else.
