    Considering a new pinpointer what do you recommned?

    OK friends, I have the black Garrett pinpointer and I am interested in getting a waterproof version. So, should I just buy the Carrot by Garrett or another brand. Interested in Minelab yellow and black pinpointer. I would be interested in hearing your opinions. Thanks in advance.

    I have 3, the old black garret, mi6 from xp and a tekpoint. Rechargeable in the xp is nice. They also have a mi4 that is stand alone. The mi6 connects to the remote of the orx and deus. The tekpoint is a pulse unit, uses aa batteries and causes a bit more interference with most detectors but works great. Both waterproof for all but diving.

    So my vote is for either mi4/mi6 or tek.

    Eager to hear what people say.I'm also looking for a new pinpointer. I use a detector pro pistol probe. I works good adn can detector coins from a couple inches but it is a bit big and cumbersome.

    I love my Garrett Carrot water proof lots of cool settings from beep to vibrate also has a pin point function like when you find a target and it beeps in the hole you can press and hold the button and gives a very accurate pin point I have lost it like a half dozen times and if you set it while hunting it gives off a beep periodically in case you left it at your last target plus its orange and you can spot it fairly easy.

    I have the TRX. while the garrett is a fine pointer, I prefer the tip sensitivity on the TRX …….

    Well FWest, I checked them out (crummy day here in Michigan). It looks like the tek has the best range. Mi4 looks the most waterproof but I'm not sure that the difference will matter. Do you find messing with the settings of the Mi4 an issue? The video I watched was good but might be tough changing setting in the field? If you have a minute, what is your experience with that? Thanks in advance. Also, I see you have the EQ600. Considering buying one this week and getting rid of my Garrett 400. If you had to do it over, would you buy the 800?

    Can't go wrong with the Garrett carrot. I prefer the MI6 especially if you have Deus to sync with and adjust power.

    From personal experience DO NOT BUY a Fisher F-pulse; I've had 3 of them fail, replaced 2x by Fisher and got so mad at the last F-pulse they sent me because of failure that I sold it for $25 just to get rid of it and I had bought it for $119 just 8 months ago. [Begged Fisher for a refund, but no go] Also, I would NOT RECOMMEND the Minelab Pro-find 15 or 35 (mine). After 7 months use, the Pro Find 35 button broke through the soft casing and allows water and debris to enter inside the unit - it is still working but failure is imminent. Also, the Pro Find has a speaker just opposite the on/off button and you end up pressing the speaker all the time thinking it is the on/off button - very poor design.

    I'm currently looking for a new waterproof pointer and the Garrett carrot looks the best to me right now. I know I can get a knock-off pointer on e-bay for something like $35, but they'll ALL Chinese knock-off junk and I'm willing to pay for the real thing and support AMERICAN companies and businesses rather than chinese rip-off companies. SUPPORT AMERICA!!!

    Lawerence, check out the Tek pp. (grey/blue in color) Watched video today, they are all around 130 bucks for waterproof and I might go that route.

    The Garrett carrot is an excellent choice as I have used mine many times in the water. No issues at all and it works really well.

    Another pinpointer to check out would be the Land or Sea by Gold Digger Innovative Products. I use that one from time to time and works great as well. About the only complaint would be the volume is not very loud.
