    All Types Of Treasure Hunting


    Exactly as the title says: I'm in the market for a new pinpointer, and I want to know which one is the absolute best.

    Money is no object. A good pinpointer saves time, opens more holes, and scores more targets. PERIOD.

    So far I've been using the White's TRX. I like it, but I want to know if there's anything more accurate/deeper/faster/etc...

    So okay everyone... GO!

    I have the Whites, the black Garrett and the Garrett carrot... the carrot is my favorite, the others collect dust.

    The XP MI-6 is the most advanced, wireless for the Deus. It will work without a Deus but not as good. I also have a Tek-Point in the original version. It is amazingly powerful.

    I have been a Garrett Pro Pointer and White's TRX user for years. Recently Got the XP Mi-6 with my XP ORX and it's the best I've ever used. It can be set up many different ways. I like the VCO setting, waterproof to 20', Rechargeable battery, and with the ORX it can be heard through your headphones, also can be located with the ORX detector if you forget it and leave it at your last recovery.

    Ive only used the Nokta. Excellent. Why not buy the Nokta scuba tector then you swap heads and youve got another detector and an excellent pinpointer.

    I've used and/or tested all except the XP and I've settled on the Minelab Pro Find 35. Extremely user friendly; easily adjusted for sensitivity, reliable, iron ID at close ranges and accurate.

    Just the opinion from my foxhole...

    Over the years I have probably owned most. I have had the vibrate only and the noise makers only and the pointers that do both. I have the tip and up the shaft detectors and the tip only pointers. The two that surface the most is the carrot and the TRX. I am very much in tune with the tip only pointers because I feel that it is a true pin pointer and the up the shaft is a general area detector. The TRX fits my needs the best. I have been surveying a couple new pointers that are now on the market with what they call variable freq.. Who knows maybe I will have one of those in my inventory soon to try out. In the mean time I will be touting the TRX as my favorite.

    Iíve used most all of them. My top pics are the TRX, AT Proppointer, Makro, MI6 and Profind 35. I generally weigh everything by sensitivity, ease of use, ruggedness, compactness, waterproofness and then features. Most donít make the cut for me because the vibrations are weak or they arenít sensitive. One of the more sensitive ones Iíve used are the Fisher (Tek Point same thing).

    I tinkered with the Quest but I havenít used it or the newer a Nokta one. Right now I carry the TRX and older, black Makro. Given the choice of one and where it would be dry land hunting it would be the TRX. Given water conditions it is a toss up between the Makro or the AT Propointer. These last two only edge out the others because they vibrate harder and I can more easily feel it under water.

    Carrot all the way.
    I have a Nokta too, nice but it is a behemoth, also a flat nose, neither one being ideal features for a pinpointer.

    I have the Mi6, TRX and Nokta. Each have their good points and bad. If money is not an issue i suggest getting one of each brand and figure out which one fits you the best.
