Ordered A Replacement Shell For My Trx


Recommended Posts

Seeing how Whites is out of business now , I decided I should get a replacement shell for my trx before they are unavailable and I wear mine out like my old Garrett pro pointer. I ordered from Serious Detecting  LLC . $34.93 with free shipping. Not trying to advertise for them, I have just made purchases from them before so thought I'd get it there. Also seen some available from others on E-bay. Sure hated to see White's close their doors.

I coated the bottom 4 inches of mine with PLASTI DIP, it is used to coat tool handles.  It has held up very well against abrasion.

I don't think I will buy any extra parts for obsolete detectors. With my luck, the part that fails will be one you can't get, and I'd have to toss the whole works anyway.....new spare parts and all.

The Whites Trx pinpointer is one of the best pinpointers ever produced and I think it is far from obsolete. I'll be keeping mine for many years I'm sure ! Just my opinion.

I had one go bad a few months ago. White's gave me a new one, but, it's not exactly like the one I bought. I liked that lime green case on my original, but, the replacement was the standard black with the orange end cap. The first one had some sort of internal electrical problem. You'd turn it on and it would just keep beeping uncontrollably. If this one eventually does the same thing (or dies some other death), I'll just get a new one in a different brand.

I have the one with the black case and orange cap , have had it for maybe 2 yr's now with no problems. keeping my fingers crossed now after reading your post. if it ever does the death dance before me, I think I would go with the XP. I like everything I have read about it.

If I had a Deus, I probably would too.

      Minelab PRO-FIND Series Pinpointers

      PRO-FIND Series Pinpointers assist in accurately locating targets at the point of extraction where a metal detector coil cannot fit.  This results in smaller holes, less environmental disruption and faster target recovery time.
      The PRO-FIND 15 offers essential core pinpointer features and is designed for simplicity and ease of use.  The PRO-FIND 35 provides premium level functionality in a fully waterproof design for the serious detectorist.  Both models use VLF transmission and incorporate Minelab’s unique Detector Interference Free (DIF) technology.

      I like the bright orange because I'm careless and seem to lose a half dozen every year.  I've already lost 2 of the green ones in the past month.   I've quit buying Pinpointers for the same reason.   I think I got these from Rob's Detectors.
