I picked up a Deteknix Wader from an online UK site for 109.00 Can funds last year.

It's a PI pinpointer and uses both aa and 9v batteries. Waterproof to 10 ft.

I see this as another case of US makers being slow to market. Deteknix even has lithium versions good to 200ft.

Since Deteknix got caught with their hand in the cookie jar copying First Texas technology there is some real irony in the last post.

Interesting pair of posts on another forum.  First thing is that Carl Moreland posts - he is the Engineering Manager at First Texas and the guy who designed the new Fisher/Tek pinpointers, then Dave Johnson the Chief Designer at First Texas posts...

To avoid cross-posting, I’ll link to it.  The cool thing is Carl discusses changes he might make in the design and solicits suggestions from users - Dave asks when has anyone seen the engineer responsible openly discuss possible changes to a device in production.

I get the feeling that First Texas is getting steadily more aware of the need for more openness in an industry which hasn’t seen much of it.

      Anyone had the problem of their pro-find 35 losing its bleeping audio?  Still got the vibrations and hence some resonance sound, but its as if ive gone deaf, which evidently i haven't.
      Is this serious?
       
      Thanks, Andy.

      I have a Garrett carrot and I have noticed in some videos that people using them turn them on while touching the turf or sand before using them to find their target. I know why this is done, but is it really necessary? I was wondering how many of you, on this forum, do this?

      Found this item on Amazon. It might be good for dunking sub-IP68 pinpointers, or as an added level of protection to IP68s. I'm going to buy one just for the heck of it. What do you guys think?

      Have seen several reviews of the Jeemak pointer but am not sure about authenticity of the reviewers. Normally if something is this cheap it rings alarm bells. Has anyone got one, are they any good? Would be interested to see if anyone has any experience of them, thanks in advance.

      Hi, am looking to purchase a good pinpointer to use with my Equinox 800. Talked to the sales guy at the shop where I purchased the detector and enquired about getting either a Garrett pro or the latest Nokta. The sales guy would only recommend that I get a Minelab pro find 35 as the others would interfere with the detector meaning that I would have to switch it off if I wanted to use the pointer. Has anyone had these sort of problems or was it just a creative salesman ?, any thoughts would be helpful, thanks

      has any one air test the scuba tector on large objects ????? i like to know it max range ......i seen its worthless on very small targets ....whats it range on a helmet , rifle ,  truck size object ....the targets i look for  are 12 to 24 inches deep could the scuba tector in wet sand go this deep ???  or does it max out at 12" am guessing 2.5x the coil size like other pi detectors do ....
