    *Pinpointer Dilemma*

    New to the hobby. Looking for a good all around pinpointed that won't break the bank.

    I’m new to the hobby as well and I use the Garrett Pro Pointer. Works great.

    Most detectorists use a Garret at pro pointer or you could go for the standard one. They are good pinpointers and last as long as you dont break them.

    Many to choose from.. all good PPs. Just stick with a name brand and you will be good. They are all around the $119-129 price range. If you habe the NOX or another multi freq machine i would not get the Fisher F pulse. Its a PI PP and it drives the multi freq machines nuts. On the other hand it is the deepest PP i have ever seen there is a video on my ch if you want to check it out.

    Anyway you can go wrong garrett, whites trx, Profind 35, Fisher..

    My favorite is the orange Garrett Propointer AT hands down.
    The standard black one has a cheesy on/off button that doesn't last long.

    Garrett carrot. Save yourself time, money and grief. I've used a bunch that were the same or more money and the Garrett wins hands down!

    Totally agree. All other pinpointers are nothing in comparison.

    The carrot is a great pointer but it is not the only great pointer. I love the TRX pointer much more than my carrot. There is a following for the carrot as you can see but there is also a big following for the TRX, Minelab and new fisher pointers.

    Detecting since the late 70's with my Father, and before with my Uncle in Florida in the mid-60's with a vintage modified mine detector (vacuum tube type). First detector ever used was a Whites Goldmaster S63 (also vac tube) mid-60's.
