As i am mainly after old coinage that is mainly silver or gold the pinpoint probe is very important too me as i dont want to damage these potentially rare coins,so my main everyday use probe is the Garrett pinpointer,i also have a Whites Bullseye as a reliable backup and a DX-1 inline probe on my DFX possibly my best probe but alas its only tethered to the one machine alas thats its downfall.

Also i have and occasionally use is the Uniprobe headphone/pinpointer all in one,expensive setup because it came over from the US son incurred high postage and other import taxes but i do you that mainly when artifact/hoard hunting as because its Pulse based it does offer extra depth.

But for every day use the original black Garrett does everything reliable as i am after,its vitally important when coin/artifact hunting that you are precise when digging the coin out so as not too damage it.Not like the nugget hunters who use massive axe based implements :biggrin:

I use the XP MI6. I bought it to pair with my Deus but never have. I like it, it's waterproof and has a mad 90 hours of run time between charges. I had a garrett carrot and a regular garrett but am happy I made the switch.

      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!
