    @Deep1 check out the video . He uses a coin but same concept, the hose clamp I use is tightened down in the sweet spot so it doesn't move .

    Worked the GP pointer on the salty sand beach again yesterday , when finished I dunked it in the ocean to clean it off . Still working 100% today even though this model does not claim to be waterproof. I ordered the SHRXY GP pointer 2 (TRX clone) . GP2 claims to be 100% waterproof. I will definitely be testing it out in the Atlantic when it arrives .

    OP I have spent $53.50 (shipping included) for 2 pinpointers.

    Detecting before discrimination.
    Biggest improvement in metal detecting: discrimination.
    Second biggest: pin pointer.
    Bought one this year.
    I love it. Should have bought one years ago.

    If it's old, I'll dig it, dive on it, detect it or sometimes when I get lucky just bend over and pick it up.

    JUNK ! If you ever use a Garrett Pro Pointer, there is no comparison.

    Borrow one and use it out on a hunt just once and you will find that it speeds up the recovery time so much that you can dig twice or more as many targets in one hunt.
    I started in 1984 as well, before pinpointers. Now, I won't go without a pinpointer.

    Treasure Products Vibra Probe 580, Pulse Induction Pin Pointer...what Khz Frequency ?

    Hi !

    I have a Vibra Probe 580 Pin Pointer, received from Treasure Products July 26, 2017.

    It has PI (Pulse Induction) circuitry, but I would also like to know the Khz frequency.
    Can anyone help with that ?

    Thanks,
    ToddB64

    Another reason to buy a good one (Whites, Garrett) I have both brands. If anything goes wrong, contact either company, they will fix or replace them. Try that with any of the Chinese brands, not going to happen!

    @GPS53 That's great and all but I can buy 5 of the GP's for less $ than a Whites/Garrett (TRX MSRP 159.95 ). So maybe my GP breaks in the next 2 years ,I pitch it in the garbage and order another for $20./$30. 2yr warranty is great but how much does that add to the overall price ? extra $50-$100 I would guess.

    I see you're in PA , Do you detect every day? Winter? Your warranty is 2yrs from date of purchase. So if you use it 20,30,100,200 days a year, times that by 2 and that's your actual warranty.

    If you feel your Garrett is superior , awesome! In reality they ALL do the same thing, however some do it at a much lower price point and no warranty (i'm ok with that). As a newer metal detector I spent the money on a decent entry level machine(equinox 800) and didn't have the extra cash to spend on a "name brand" pinpointer ,so I tried the GP pointers. I have been pleasantly surprised at how good these GP pointers are, they have served their purpose in all environments.

    I'm sure your pinpointers work as designed as do the GP Pointers 1&2 . Although I don't have a GP pointer hat and t-shirt every brand has its fanboys !

    I have a TRX and it started acting up, setting it's self off and constantly sound off, I called whites even though I had it for a couple years they said sent it in and they would fix or replace it and then sent it back free of charge.
    customer service is hard to find like that.
