How is it as a pin pointer?

I bought the Pulse Dive to be used mostly as a land pinpointer.  I bought it to replace the pro-find 35 I was always having issues with. 

First off the price of just the pin pointer for land use is amazing.  I was going to get a carrot as a replacement but the Pulse Dive is about 30 Canadian dollars cheaper.  With the ability to work well underwater, upgradeable with a coil and a rechargeable battery I took a chance on the PD.

I have about 10 hours with it now, and I have generally enjoyed using it.  I have had none of the issues I had with my pro-find.  On my visual air tests it seems to have just as much depth as other pin pointers I have played with.  Power buttons are a long press to turn off and on, and it will ground balance with a short press.  To change sensitivity you need to use two hands as you hold down one button while pressing another.  Once I messed around it with and got my muscle memory it is quite easy to use and with its large buttons I could generally operate it without paying too much attention.

One of my detectors is a Multi Kruser.   I was hopefully the blue wireless headphones would work with it, but they do not.  It clearly states on their webpage that it only works with their green headphones, but the PD manual doesn't specify.  It was a long shot to check but I had to know.

My only grip is the holster.  It uses a metal clip to attach to your pants or belt (similar to a cellphone pant clip).  The pin pointer is a snug fit, so every time I pull out my pin pointer the whole holster comes with it.  My old holster had a belt loop so that didn't happen.  I have since learned to use my left hand to the hold the holster while I remove the pin pointer.  It's annoying, but that's the only thing I don't like about it.

Being a pin pointer I don't know what else I could add.  If you have anything specific or want me to try something let me know.  It's pretty cold and windy these days, so it's the only excuse I will have to play with it for a while.

I just ordered one to replace my Profind 35 which is starting to give me fits and can only run it at 1/2 the sensitivity. Need to send it back for repair/replacement. I was kind of stuck as my trusty bullseye finally died.

I do have the Nokta Green Headphones, set them up on my Gold Racer but might move them back to the Multi Kruzer which I have the waterproof ones on now. Also have a Nel Superfly coming in for the Kruzer so should be a pretty good field/beach machine.

Wireless feature is not a make or break deal maker. One of the reasons I left the waterproof headphones on the MK was because the PF35 would drive it bonkers with the green headphones in 5 and 14 khz and less interference with the wired ones.

Thanks for the reply.

When the Pulse Dive first came out with the small coil then later with the 8” you could find both in a great package deal . I’ve looked high and low but I guess that package is history because it’s none to be found. I want just the big 8” coil but that’s not to be .

 This guy downunder done a video showing depth between the two coils and on some things the 8” detected over 3 inches.

 If my wife finds out how much I’ve been buying and trading she’s going to change me from a rooster to a hen real quick.

 Oh well we got to go sometimes!

How are you liking your Pulse Dive paired with the Green headphones?

I am still undecided as I find the volume excessive and it seems to have a noticeable delay in response time. I would appreciate your thoughts.

if you are really serious about the 8" PulseDive coil or the two coil package, there are some on Ebay USA right now.

 Thanks but I’ve done bought it with the small coil but due to a sick wife I’m locked in.

 Of all things a friend in Oklahoma that I’d just talked with Wednesday of last week killed him self the next day. I’m having a hard time with that being I don’t know what could been so bad for him to do that.

 He was a great friend but that don’t make any difference anymore.

      I've been debating whether to get a Fisher F-Pulse due to its greater sensitivity compared to my Garrett Carrot. But I wonder about its "closing range." What's that? Let me try to explain.
      Today, I tried using my Garrett Carrot for a full hunt, but had it on maximum sensitivity. I appreciated its extended range as it made it easier to determine if my target was in my plug or hole. However, I realized that the greater sensitivity isn't as useful as I had hoped given the amount of trash where I hunt. So while my Fisher F2 could discriminate out trash, during my dig, my Garrett Carrot might detect a piece of trash before it could get the actual target I was digging for.
      But I confirmed that the greater sensitivity of my Garrett Carrot isn't as useful as I had hoped because of the short "closing range" it had. What I'm referring to is its ability to change its beeping as the poinpointer gets closer to the target.
      For instance, the pinpointer might detect a target 3 inches out. But when it's still 1 inch away, the steadily increasing beeps have stopped and now it's a solid tone. And it stays this solid tone no matter how much closer you get to the target. Ideally, the steadily increasing beeps (what I'm referring to as its "closing range") will continue until the pinpointer is touching the target.
      I see tons of videos on a pinpointer's sensitivity. But none on its "closing range." I'm realizing that having a pinpointer with the ability to detect a coin at 4 inches, but only has a "closing range" of 2 inches may not be as useful as a pinpointer with the ability to detect a coin at 3 inches, but has a closing range of 2.75 inches (assuming this kind of pinpointer even exists). I also understand that the size of the target makes a big difference. With my ring, I may never get a solid beep from my pinpointer even when it touches my ring. Yet when next to a metal trash can, I get the solid beep when the pinpointer is 4+ inches way.
      So my question is: what pinpointer(s) have the best closing ranges? For example, the Fisher F-Pulse has the best (or among the best) range/sensitivity of most major pinpointers on the market. But does it have a correspondingly long closing range, too?

      I recall that there were several people here who were looking for the TRX pinpointer and not finding them in stock anywhere. I was just looking at the Centreville Electronics website and they have them listed in stock for $199 with 2 year warranty. I was able to add one to my cart so it appears real.

      Hey everyone! I just upgraded to a nox 800 at the start of the month, moving over from a simplex and pulsedive. I was having trouble getting used to the nox at first and was thinking of sending it back because I couldn't even detect in tot lots. Thanks to some posts on here, it's going a lot smoother.
       
      My question is this, is there a way to pair the pulsedive with the equinox headphones?

      This morning I wanted to charge my XP MI-4 pinpointer but couldn't open the knob covering the charging plug. After many fruitless attempts, I contacted XP service at metaldetector.com. In an on-line chat, they suggested soaking the tip in warm water for 15 minutes, then to try twisting to open and even reversing directions a few times. After a few tries, this worked.
      Hope this helps anyone else who might have this problem.

      Today was out in a park, shooting coins with a friend. (Between us, got three forties wheats, 1940 Jefferson, a Mercury, and a silver ring) Beauty weather for December: high fifties, sunny. Nice day. In the middle of it all, whilst I was rooting in a hole, my TRX pinpointer started playing a song! I thought it was telling me to change the battery. No, it was playing a weird little ditty. Neither my friend or I could recognize the tune. Anyone have any light to shed on this? I found a YouTube video from 6 six years ago, but I'm not even sure it was the same song... I wish I had thought to record the song with my phone, but I admit I failed to think fast enough.   😞     Oh, White's Electronics, you shall be missed!

      Earlier people were looking for a TRX pinpointer. Centerville Electronics has a refurbished one on their used page for $95 with a 6 month warranty. Already have one or I would have jumped on it.
      Cheers
