    I have had the Black Garrett, the carrot, the Whites TRX and the XP. I loved the black Garrett and it went bad and sent it in for repair and Garrett talked me into trading it for the carrot and I hated the carrot so I gave it away. I bought a TRX and wasn't impressed but still have it. So I went simple and bought the XP and for me when pinpointing simple is best however all the pin pointers are good and have features that are likeable.

    I use the TRX. It’s very sensitive which I like but is very noisy when run hot.

    ANY TYPE OF TREASURE HUNTING THAT PUTS MONEY IN MY POCKET
    All i have ever used is a black Garrett i have been using Garrett since they came out with the first one. I really like the Garrett and will never use a different brand. You can not beat the Garrett pin pointer. But that is me.

    I use the Garrett carrot for all my land and up to 10' deep underwater. I recently purchased a Dr. Otek good for 32' underwater and took it down to 30' with no issues.
    It also works good on land but it's a bit larger in design than the carrot.

    Because they are No longer made, They sell Like Gold Does.

    You said Best that Money Can buy , So I Take it Money Don't matter.

    Once you get used to One, it's indispensable & Like having a
    1" coil on a stick Detector That runs through Your Control Box's Power.
    Just switch the Toggle to Coil or Probe

    Hello, your question is something that I have dealt with the last 2 weeks. May have an answer for ya. I used a White pinpointer TRX for about 4 years. Worked great. Then the sound went out on it and only got a faint hum. Bought a Garrett brand about 2 weeks ago. Have to admit...its a equal or better than my white was. About 30 bucks less too. Great, strong signal. Never misses a target. No hum or false signals. And it comes set up out of the box , at about a 2 inch signal from a target. Perfect for any hole. Its a winner !

    I've drowned many a carrot. The warranty is nice but don't wait to send it back. I'm on carrots # 5-6 . I carry both on me in case one goes out. Too many ruined hunts walking back to the car lol. Yes I'm hard on them. Yes I know you're not supposed to use them instead of a shovel lol.

    I had a Deteknix X Pointer I really liked but someone stole it a while back (haven't hunted much in the last 3 years but the addiction is getting the better of me once again; thankfully).

    Just ordered a cheap Chinese GP Pointer to get going again. Once the treasure begins to pile up again I'll get a better one. It was like; 15 bucks.
    For the money it seems adequate but I dunno how long it will last; if at all.
    I've used worse though; like the Harbor Freight model for 17 bucks that works fairly well IF you replace the crappy switch with a heavy duty one and use the metal ring trick.
    The LED was actually very bright on that one though. Plus when it breaks or you lose it, it's no great loss.

    But all of the big names are good; Garrett, Minelab, etc.
    If money is no object get a fully waterproof model. never know when you'll need to submerse that thing to find that treasure.

    I have the Carrot and XP. Love them both. Don’t use them much on the beach though.

    Why not, have you never been annoyed by the elusive target other then the 3ft deep buried beer can? Lol

    Lol! Yes on the deep beer can but when they’re that deep I leave it for someone else to have some fun digging it up.
    Best of luck!

    Digging up the sand on beaches can save you from buying a pinpointer.
