    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.
    First off that would annoy me to No end.

    First I Was taught the quarter thing when I Switched from sunray to Garrett.
    Though I Saw it worked, The Need to pull a Quarter out my Pocket, Place it against the Probe, Tune the Garrett
    then stick the Probe Back in the Hole ? 10+ seconds my Guestimate.

    To Stick my Scoop Back in the Hole Take another Scoop Out, My guestimate 3 Seconds.

    the Permanent Tuner ? Pain in the Arse ! & Still Exttra Time, Because after, I Still need to Stick the Scoop in After I Get a Signal.


    The less Gizmos to Work With The Better )

    Why can't the Piece of Metal Be Epoxied in Place permanently ?
    (Finally a Use for a Zinclon ? )

    I say Since Sunray Killed themselves by Continually Upping their Prices, Without any Major
    Improvements, Other then Size.
    Instead of Lowering them.

    Then Left everyone Hanging By Going out of Business.

    I'd like to see someone Start making a Clone.

    Seriously, Seemed to me The parts Should Cost less then $10.00 in Balk.

    No I'm no Expert, But that is my Un-Expert opinion, All that is in the Box is a Directional Switch . Like a switch that sends a Speaker From One room to the Other,
    And a Plug to Match your Detectors Plug.

    The Probe on the Other hand, I Have no idea on actual Manufacture Cost,
    But again, Shouldn't be much when Done in balk.

    I'd guess Largest cost was going intro a Legal Business
