I signed off on final paperwork just now. First shipment may go on the truck today. Again, this is Tek only, not Fisher.

Thanks so much for chiming-in here Carl. That is the most up-to-the-minute info I think I have ever seen from a manufacturer!

I'm waiting with cash in hand...

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, Carl.  If I'm reading Steve's posts right, the Tek and the Fisher are identical except for the paint job?  I'm hoping I can order one or the other next week so it will be here to greet my new EQ 800.  I don't think my EQ and my Sun-ray pinpointer are going to play very well together.  :biggrin: 

It's a shame because I love the thing and it's the main reason I've kept that DFX around for 15 years.

Yes, same exact unit, just whether you like red or green. Sunray had a nice thing going for a while. The good news is that in the world of wireless it won't be long before everyone has wireless pinpointers that mimic the Sunray mode of operation. The TRX was designed to do that (has space for a wireless module) but never got there. The Fisher/Tek models will eventually get wireless.

Gee Carl, I was all geared up to be using the pinpointer 10 feet underwater, and now I can’t! OMG! :laugh:

In jest of course but I swear these days people want to seize on everything. I am looking forward to your pinpointer because I used to use the Uniprobe and it was great but in the end unwieldy. I am guessing a PI pinpointer will work much better in my ground and will wait patiently until you make the red ones. I actually like the Tek look better but went for the red for that little extra visibility should I drop it in the woods (I worry too much :rolleyes:).

I ordered my f-pulse in early December. 

So these should be available for dealers to ship to customers very soon now?

Update:  just got an email with tracking number from metaldetector.com so my fisher f-pulse has shipped.   I ordered it December 6 

Im excited to be getting this pinpointer though I admit I'd rather be getting my Equinox 800. At number 7 on the preorder list I'm hoping for a hefty 2nd shipment..Im pretty sure the f-pulse will not interfere with my f75, and I'm hoping it will also be Ok with the equinox

      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!
