    Just got the Tek-Point. Looks good. It's really hot!

    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    haven't used it outdoors, maybe should find a planter indoors. LOL When i turned the unit on I was going to test it on a metal object but it started to slowly beep. I thought something might be wrong. Then I noticed I was about a foot away (more or less) from our dishwasher! That was at medium power. Like the instructions say, if the target is three inches or less deep you can pinpoint before digging. Sweet!

    I've only spent a few minutes with it, but I do like the proportional beeping (beep rate increases as you near the target). Maybe just me or didn't get enough time on it (like five minutes), but it appears the lowest power level has been reduced a bit compared to the videos I watched. Now about even with other pinpointers I've used at full power. So if you don't like power you can always turn it down to level one. LOL Also seems like the tip is a bit more sensitive than the sides.

    Anybody who has one, see how it works on a small piece of gold, a few grains.

    2.8 grains gold about one inch. Might work for gold crevice.

    I like the proportional beep. Have to get it close to the target to get the solid beep. Easy enough to bench test a few targets to see where that line is. So that last inch (for coin-sized target) is a good way to measure how close to the target it is so you don't scratch it. So if it's still beeping you know you have at least one inch to dig. Solid beep, one inch or less depending on where the power level is set. Now big targets, well...LOL A cast iron wood stove hits from two feet on high power level. LOL And maybe six inches of solid beep. This is a metal detector that wants to be a pinpointer.

    I guess I'll quit talking about this one. All I can say is if you are in the market for something that works, you should check it out. So far the best thing about it is you can pinpoint before digging many targets. The double D coil I use does not do well on shallow targets. The Tek-Point just kills them. Really a bit surprised nobody is talking about it. And I love that proportional beep. They hit that one.

    Does this detect on the side too, or just the tip?
    For some aerial shots of Cobalt Ontario mines: https://vimeo.com/weotn
    Nice way to survey a site quickly, to look for hidden tailings piles and recent pile changes.
    Helps to notice old foundations in fields too!

    It detects on the sides as well.
    Same unit as the Fisher F-Pulse except one's red and the other's green.
    They are pulse induction units rather than very low frequency.
    I love my F-Pulse so far. Much deeper and sensitive than my Garrett.

    You mention the proportional beep like it's a new thing. What's different about the beep compared to a Garrett? Also, is the Tek-Point any different than Fisher's new probe?
    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

    Just received a Minelab Equinox 800

    I just said i like the proportional beep. Don't really know how to describe it. It is consistent/smooth, starts out real slow.
