IMG_0648.thumb.PNG.5ccd0bd2ba095cab0191935be0ba0f9d.PNGFound 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?

I bought one very similar for my original carrot before I upgraded to the AT version, it works fine but you sure wouldn't want to scrape or dig with the pointer, you'll blow it out easily.

My wife opened the mail the day it arrived, she thought I bought some odd sort of thing, use your imagination ?

Lmao!!! I remember when Dominick Ivy DaSilva of the Whites Field Team had a video removed from YouTube for violating some kind of community standards and was wondering what it could possibly have been. Then when you looked at the cover shot she's standing there holding a long pink phallic object with "vibrate mode" etc. That you could win. 

In any case, I ordered two of the above pouches. I tend to have my pinpointers a little deeper than their recommended water depth, particularly the Tek-Point. Never had a problem, but wanted the extra protection. I figured they probably aren't very rugged, but I'm hoping not super flimsy either. We'll see shortly.

They arrived

I attempted to do a video unboxing etc., but as you can see, I learned that lighting is a big problem in my work area. I'm going to have to upgrade to some better light sources this evening.

one concern i had was whether the TRX would fit because these pouches are listed as "10 long. No worries though, the TRX fit just fine. The other concern I have is the build quality of these products. It's not the plastic compound I would've used. It is the kind that could, with enough exposure lend itself to becoming brittle. The seams around the edges are thin, so with enough movement I could see them coming undone. I like the product, but we'll see how it holds up through submersion through the rest of the season. I'm not going to keep them on as a matter of general use. I'm sure they aren't for that, but I do intend to use them as often as I can in my swimming holes.

I've used my old black Garrett Pointer which isn't waterproof at all in my one quite a bit last season and had no issues, I was willing to risk it as I don't need it anymore as I've upgraded to the AT version which is waterproof but still it's handy having the cover for extra protection for m AT.

      I have been a primary whites user since 1972  I have owned the V3i since its release and love it.  I have been looking at the equinox 800  and the anfibio multi. I was wondering if anyone had compared these two detectors the V3i.  Other multi frequency thoughts?  I have the Minelab Excalibur II 800 for salt water and diving.
      My only wish for the Anfibio multi would be to allow all three or select 2 (not available on the V3i)  
      The Graphics and information from the V3i are still unmatched

      White’s you have maybe a month to three months to come out with a new detector line , That’s if you want to keep up with the Jones better known as Minelab and Makro .
       Hope to see the lineup real soon. I know you don’t spend money on flashy videos and beautiful girls and that’s okay with me.
       What I want to see is American made on the housing somewhere and White’s number one detector company again.
       You make it I’ll buy it! ( I’ve been doing it since 1966 )

      Around here in the Klamaths bedrock is at lest 2 feel down and often much deeper.  Digging through several feet of boulders and cobbles is serious hard work.  Then there is sand sliding in from the sides making progress very slow.  To beat that, I need to set the sides of the hole far apart or I get a hole with a hand-sized bottom continually filled with sand from the sides.  That is a lot of work.  Historically the creek was a huge gold producer.  I see little or no gold in the upper material.  Have I just not found the right spot, or is sluicing here hopeless?  Should I spend more time prospecting for productive material near the surface, or give it up?

      I just received a new to me SDC2300 and wanted to verify it using the Minelab security check on their website. I did not receive the viewer that was originally included with the detector so what worked for me was a coolant leak detector flashlight ( black light or UV light) It works well enough for me to read the hidden code and I was able to verify my machine.

      I had a couple lead test targets for calibrating in the field but lost them on my last Western expedition.  This is the main reason I don't use gold test targets!  I'm ready to make a new set.  I'd like to hear your advice on what size and shape of lead I should be using, for both LF and PI detectors.

      I apologize to all my weak English
       A few days ago I was on a journey to look for a gpz 700 golden device when I came across a large quartz rock I passed the device on the rock and issued the device indicating a clear target and the device was as follows
       General
       Allergy 9
       I switched the settings to make sure the target was metal and not an imaginary target
       Difficult
       Allergy 2
       .  It also gave me a clear target signal.  I broke the rock into parts and it took me a great effort.  I reached the desired part and the crystal was in the heart of the rock
       Suddenly after I took out the desired part, I broke the piece in half and found that this material resembles mud and strange when I passed the device on the piece after I broke it the target signal disappeared and the device did not make any sound I tried to change the settings but to no avail the device kept silent
       A question.  Do any of you know these crystalline materials
       And what is your interpretation of what happened
      Thanks to all
