My New Favorite Pinpointer - The Fisher F-Pulse

Recommended Posts

Since I compare the F-Pulse directly to the Garrett Pro-Pointer AT I have filed this report at the Metal Detector Advice & Comparisons Forum

Short story - best pinpointer for my purposes I have ever used, and my new favorite. It was not a difficult decision!

I used mine last weekend.  Deeper than my TRX and less fussy.

I bought the red one for visability too and think It will be great also, though I haven't seen it in action. Mine arrived inoperable. I called Fisher, and they emailed me a fedex label for free return shipping. I sent it back for repair and they are now sending me a  brand new one. What a great company:

"Hello, I just called and left you a voice message, your new replacement F-Pulse will be shipping today via FEDEX tracking number 789917------.

Thank you for being patient!

I think my only question on this one is why they reduced the submersibility from 10ft to 6ft. I've been considering this one or the PF35. Initially they said 10ft, then from what I understand from thehuntergt there's a sort of disclaimer inside amending it to 6ft. Right now I use the TRX, but am considering a pulse induction Pointer to use with my Equinox on the beach or harsher soils.

Thanks Steve, you put me on to some great information there. Never knew the TRX nearly had wireless adaptation, and am very excited that eventually the Tek-Point/F-Pulse will have it. Makes me wonder what machine the TRX would've linked up to, and has piqued my imagination about what the FT pinpointers will link to. Still believe amazing things are coming from FT soon.

Does it interfere with the Equinox? some of the UK lads say it does

My EQ800 is happy even when I point my F-Pulse right at the coil.

Hey Steve or anyone in the know does it cross talk with the Gpx's and is it just as sensitive and deep as the Trx which is my favorite for now ? Will it interfere when turned off like the old garrets did ? Thanks-Mike C...:ph34r:

      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 ....
