    Gave the Tek-Point a good work-out. Most targets were detectable before any digging. Found a shallow coin spill and it made things easier for sure. Deep targets, too. I think one time in four hours I noticed the side detection. Certainly not a big deal if that is your buy/no buy decision. The tip is the hottest area anyway. I see how people swear by pinpointers--it's easy to get hooked on using it.

    I've used other pinpointers and never would go never back to the weak ones. I like the horsepower.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    L-rods are obsolete.

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    What kind of battery life can be expected with this pinpointer?

    25 hrs on med sens, 40-ish on low sens. Assumes you pick either beep or vibe, but not both.

    Just got my F-Pulse yesterday. Haven't used it outside yet. Definitely super sensitive...possibly too sensitive on high at least. Almost seems like it's picking up the batteries inside it. Finds a window mounted A/C unit from about 3 feet away. Then when I back away around 5 feet, it keeps slowly beeping, possibly picking up the ceiling fan 4 feet away, in the center of the room. Only way to stop it beeping is to quickly press the multifunction button to detune it a bit. Probably going to send it back to the vendor (and request a replacement F-Pulse) as it looked used when I pulled it out of the box.
    Using my Harbor Freight metal detector I found a cache of coins in a couple of spots situated within a few feet of each other.
    I ended up with 27 Walking Liberty half dollar coins, 97 Mercury dimes, 1 Morgan dollar, 1 Barber Half Dollar, 3 Liberty Head nickels, 1 Buffalo nickel, 15 mixed pennies (steel,& wheat), 2 flattened pennies with religious messages, and other silver US quarters and dimes, and 8 foreign coins. Detector has paid for itself

    Andy - I saw your post on another forum about your machine, so I went out and got a brand-new Tekpoint out of my detecting box and examined it ... here’s what I posted. I can’t say for sure yours has been “used”, but I doubt it based on what you described and pictured.

    “I just opened a brand new Tek-pulse and it is in a clear plastic bag. The bag is slid into the “holster” along with instructions. The end is folded over but not taped or closed.

    As far as the end cap, it is installed as part of the assembly process and a slip by the assembler could cause the marks you have pictured. The F-point I have used for some weeks has similar but less evident marks to yours, but I have had the cap off and on a few times.”

    I'm trying to effect an exchange right now on mine. It keeps locking up at random times while showing it to others, and it's not yet even hit the dirt. LED is on but probe just stops working, and button becomes totally unresponsive. Only way I've figured to get it working again is to loosen the cap, breaking battery contact, and then re-tighten the cap.

    Same problem here sent mine back for repair or exchange.

    Yeah, there is a bit of a learning curve how to press the button. My guess you got lost cause it happened to me once. Take a breath and slow down. Not a bad idea to navigate through all the selections a couple of times so you get the lay of the land.
