Fisher is releasing a new pinpointer for metal detecting, the new Fisher F-Pulse. The name implies it is a pulse induction pinpointer? The screw in plug in the end implies AA batteries and that the unit is probably waterproof, but with no other information to go on right now these are all guesses. No word on price yet either.

Yes, that was posted yesterday....

Same pinpointer no doubt, just different colors - dark green or dark red.

I guess I missed that.   It's nice to see some new entries in the pinpointer market.  Competition means better products for us..

I agree - the more the merrier. No worries on the Tek mention as I should have made the link there myself - so thanks!

I am interested in it mainly for the possibility of it being a pulse induction pinpointer. I have never tried a PI pinpointer but would like to. If the F-Pulse is a PI (about has to be with a name like that) then I will have to give it a spin. I personally will be more inclined towards the F-Pulse over the Teknetics version simply because of the color. Dark green and black would be easier for me to lose.

Be interesting to see if either the new First Texas model or the new Minelab pinpointer can make me put my Garrett Carrot aside. I have been doing more turf detecting than normal this summer and I don't know how I used to do it without a pinpointer.

The question to be is it performance comparable with the Garrett pro pointer and at what cost.

      A friend took his Pro Find for a little water detecting for the first time. The trouble started when his pinpointer started acting up but then went dead . At first he was thinking the battery went dead but knew better when water came running out of the battery compartment. He looked the case over good and he could see a hair line crack on one side in the seam .
      He told me after this happen and looking at it again one could see the seam wasn’t fused good together. I guess you could call a factory defect and wouldn’t been known until maybe never if it didn’t go swimming.
      Thanks for warranty we get .

      Hi fellow detectorists!
      I am completely a novice to Metal detecting. This is my current setup: 
      Minelab Equinox 600 and a trenching shovel from Home Depot.
      After roughly 15 hours of use without a pin pointer, I have come to the conclusion I NEED A PIN POINTER. As of today 17APR18 I purchased the FISHER F-PULSE and was curious present day, how those of you that use this pin pointer how it’s function is to a newbie like myself. I have have read several forum discussions by Steve, calcobra, geotech and many more. Thank you all for your indirect quantifiable background experience that has helped me immensely!
      Sorry for this long post I just know you all are the subject matter experts when it comes to this new hobby I’ve ventured into. Oh by the way, I’m looking for fellow metal detectorists in the NC area. 
      Thank you all🙂🇺🇸🙂

      I received the 35 barely used from a member here at a great price. On arrival, I tested it against my Garrett Carrot, and find it much easier to use, with better adjustment ease, as well as being capable of deeper activation on coins. The non-ferrous capability is phenomenal, and it is designed not to affect your detector while riding on your belt.

      Speaking of belts...the one thing I really DON'T like is the very narrow and tight belt loop on the holster. I would have much preferred the Molle-capable snap and velcro style of the Garrett. Someone wasn't thinking at Minelab. It won't fit on any wide belt.  I may have it modified with a velcro fold-over and snap.

      All in all, a fantastic new Pinpointer, and I think my Garrett will end up in my son's or wife's MD equipment...at least for now!

      Thinking about using PlastiDip for protecting the tip of my pinpointers and extending their life.

      Anyone tried that? Looking for experience and views.
      Cheers

      Looking for a Pro-Find 35 in stock...along with a lot of other people!
      Dealers monitoring this forum could help if you'd post when you have stock!
      Cheers!
