    The First Texas PI units are the best for sensitivity and build. Have owned all of the high end units and found the Tek-Point or F-Pulse to be superior. Also like that they run on AA batteries. So far so good!

    I carry a Vibra-Probe and fiberglass hand probe in one hand and tether my TRX on a retractable T-Reign key keeper on my belt. When I hit a target, I check it first with the Vibra-Probe which signals at tip within 1/2"-3/4" of target. If I get signal, I place the hand probe directly on the target, slide to side, and pop it out. If V-P doesn't hit, I reach for TRX which will usually reach 1.5"-3" depth. A quick scan with TRX usually reveals wider signal at tip. Quick pop on switch ratchets down the signal one pop at a time until tip indicates coin size area, hit it with the hand probe, and pop it out. If I have to widen the bottom of the hole with my hand probe, I insert the V-P to find the target and pop it out with the hand probe. I usually average 15-20 good targets per hour with this recovery technique in parks and sport fields without ever digging holes or tearing up grass. I've owned other name brand pinpointers with side detection, but they slowed me down.

    I dislike that it sometimes goes crazy and I have to restart it and it isnít fully waterproof. The other thing is that you canít find them anymore!

    I plain cannot hear the audio on the TRX with my headphones on. I have no problem with the carrot or pinpointer 11.

    I hate how you can't completely turn the sound off, even in silent mode. Still makes a loud beep when you turn it on/off, which is a lot. You could bust the speaker or de-solder it but I don't want to risk damaging other functions!

    I had a carrot and it was going on 6 years old so decided to try a TRX. I immediately regretted that decision and bought another carrot and sold the trx. How anyone can like the trx blows my mind but to each their own
