So I never owned a pinpointer before and figured I could use one so I dont have to end up digging huge holes. It would be something I could ask for for christmas. What pinpointer is good for around $70-80

Try the Zip lock baggie over it to Keep the Dirt and Moisture away from the Button!!!!! poke a hole in the bottom of the Bag Insert the Probe thru the Hole then Zip it Closed Make sure to take it out of the Bag When you get home!!! moisture will Build up inside ruining the Electronics Chug

Good luck Bobby... Hope that hand heals quick. I used a bulls eye for about a year and the probe part became loose and would not tighten up. The button quit working and I just wired it to stay on all the time and just took the battery out when I was done hunting for the day. I may have been a little rough on it though. I would fish around in the hole with it and kind of push the dirt around and I think that's what messed it up. If I got another one I would have been more careful with it and it probably would have lasted a lot longer. The thing what Chug said about the zip lock bag is probably a great idea too. Let us know how it works out. :icon_pirat:

Well Bobby, glad you finally got it. I can assure you, you will find more than pennies with it. If fact you will find the same things you would find with any other pinpointer. Go for it ! Frank
