I also have one on order so that question will be answered soon enough. 

There are plenty of pin pointers out there to choose from, but the f-pulse had the best set of features. If it arrives before my Equinox, I'll first try it out with my f75

Not fun waiting for new toys. Seems firm dates are very difficult all around.

It's now the end of January, any updates on a new shipping date?

Production began today on the Tek version. Don't know if any shipped. Fisher next week.

The delay was two-fold. First, when units from the pilot run were water-tested a few failed at 10 feet. We determined that the Gore membrane isn't reliable to 10 feet, so we backed off to a 6 foot rating. Second, the overmolded plastic was difficult to get right, and to make that job worse the molder (USA, not China) shut down for Christmas. But what I saw today was really nice and worth the extra wait.

Thanks for the update Carl. All that matters is getting it right, not fast. I will tell my Carrot to relax for a bit! :biggrin:

Thanks for posting more than a date. Details make a big difference. 

 

*EDIT* made contact with FT sales dept. "As of right now the scheduled ship date is 2/1/18"

      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!
