    Any F-Pulse Users Here?

    I have a question a about the ground mineral calibration procedure from page 10 of the manual. The last step(4) says it will respond with a beep confirming calibration is complete. Does yours do that? Is this a flaw in the manual?

    Tek-Point does the same thing--no confirmation beep after ground adjustment, but it does adjust.

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

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

    L-rods are obsolete.

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    I suspected that. I wonder how long you're supposed to hold the tip down. The method for the GB is identical to a fast detune.

    Thanks for letting me know my new one isn't flawed.

    Just an instant press.

    I think a confirmation beep would confuse things--make you think it turned off.

    *Sigh* no, the manual was NOT supposed to say that. Hold the tip to the ground, quick-press the button, it's done in 128 milliseconds. No confirmation beep. Same for detune.

    Been deciding between the F-Pulse and the Garrett AT. I've only used a PP once, so I have no real experience with these devices. With that said, it seems the Fisher/Technetics has a bit of an edge on depth...and I'm thinking that may be a bad thing. If the plug is out of the hole and I'm in the hole looking around, I'm thinking I'm going to get a reading on one wall, while the coin may be in the opposite wall, no? I'm thinking that using a deeper reading probe might be counterproductive once you are in the hole. I realize deeper might be better if trying to locate something BEFORE you start to dig, but I wonder about using it after digging. Can anyone compare their "find" speed using the Fisher vs. the Garrett AT? Again, I have extremely little experience with pinpointers, but I'm wondering if the Fisher might slow things down.

    Also, if you turn the Fisher on in max sensitivity, how easy/difficult is it to get to a less sensitive mode? Is this something that can be done for every hole, or would it be too much trouble to go back and forth from max to less-than-max for every hole?
    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

    Yeah, might be too hot for you. But you can always try the lowest power setting until you feel comfortable with the power. Honestly, high power is not like it's totally overwhelming or something.

    I'll second that. I have been through all the major pinpointers, including all those released up to last year and have settled on the Tek-Point and TRX as my go to pinpointers. Detection depth is what mattered most to me, and none are better than these two in that department. The way I look at it, you can always scale that down if you don't want so much of it, but you can't push the others past their limits in situations where you might want more depth. I like being able to determine to the greatest distance possible how far from the target I am. I like being able to locate a good lot of targets above the ground before I begin digging. Thats what Tek-point has allowed me to do. Up to the tek-point, first Texas wasn't even on the radar with pinpointers. Now, in my opinion they've broken through into the top tier.

    I called Fisher about my F-False and it's constant chatter. The guy I spoke to knew very little about these units and really didn't have any options to try and calm the thing down.

    I also provided the serial number as knew the 1st gens were a little chatty and he said mine a second gen.....soooo. there's a problem somewhere and honeslty I want it fixed. I don't know who to talk to in the company but my reviews for this pinpointer are very terrible! It's a shame too because I like the heavy build quality and feel of the thing but I'm so much more efficient with my Garrett Carrot!
