Fisher F-Pulse Finally Working Properly?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about upgrading my current pinpointer (Bounty Hunter, I think) to the Fisher F-Pulse. But reading about all the nasty problems is making me reconsider.


Does anyone know for sure if the F-Pulse is working as it should? I know they released ones with new software, but did that fix all the problems?

Mine first run F-Pulse has worked properly since day one. Still have it and still use it. Others were not so lucky. From what I hear they have sorted it out in the latest versions.

Does the F-Pulse work well with LSD NiMH AA batteries?

I have no idea. I use Duracell rechargeable NiMH batteries.

If they came precharged, then they're the LSD type. Even if they're not, if a regular NiMH works, so will the LSD NiMH.

      I'm considering the Minelab Pro-Find 15 and 35. It seems like the most important difference on a functional level is that the 15 has fixed sensitivity.

      To any of you Pro-Find users out there, is the adjustable sensitivity on the 35 important? If not, why not?

      Also, is the entire propointer a solid piece of plastic or is there a joint/seem where the black tip meets the yellow housing?

      Hey all,
      When researching pinpointers, I watch these folks doing air tests with the ruler laid out in front of it and they move the target toward the the tip by hand to get a distance reading. Now, your DD detector coils, and probably others, will detect the minerals in your hand/skin. Won't the pinpointers? Or is it not enough to throw off the reading of a target in these air tests done by hand?

      I still have the first and only pinpointer I ever bought. A black Garrett ProPointer that still seems to work as well as it ever did. My question is whether I should upgrade or just keep using it, and if yes then what to get? 
      I like to hunt fresh drops in turf with just a pinpointer and screwdriver for recovery tools. I intend to spend more time doing that this year and wonder if a more sensitive/stronger/better pinpointer might get me a better recovery rate. Currently I do not know what it does not find, and whether or not something else would be better.
      I know very little about pinpointers, have never used them much. Of course that is why one has lasted me so long. Searching the web, and even this forum, reveals a lot of different options and opinions. It would be nice to find one immune to emi and bad ground and hit small gold at over an inch. Sensitivity to small is the most important thing, checking some of my finds it seems apparent that my current pinpointer needs to be almost touching some of the really small things to indicate. That may be as well as any of them do for all I know. Anyone have thoughts?

      I normally run my pin pointers on vibrate only.   At some point in the past 3 months I managed to change my TRX to beep and vibrate.     When I got tired of it I found my instructions to change it back to Vibrate only and low and behold, the current option is the only option it will give me.    When I try to cycle through the target response options it only cycles through the beep and vibrate mode.   Will not cycle through all the options.   I thought it might be low batteries but a battery change out made no difference.
      I've never submerged it so water wouldn't be a issue.   Any ideas?   
      Guess I'll have to cough up some money and send it off to Whites to get fixed.
      Bummed me out, I can tell you.    I had to leave it at home and start using my Tek-Point which I don't like to use for jewelry hunting as it isn't as sensitive as the TRX on the small gold items.
