  1. My pleasure! I learn so much from these forums and youtube etc, so it's nice to be able to pay it back. Glad I could share the fun with y'all!
  2. Pinpointer seems to get the job done. I don't really have high standards for pinpointers, other than it's gotta be waterproof and it's gotta save me time. This one definitely is a bit thicker and has more heft to it than other pointers i've used, but I wouldn't say it's awkward to hold or carry whatsoever. Nitpicking here but a couple gripes would be that it doesn't do a flatline type beep when it gets super close to the target which some of the other pointers out there do - it just beeps very fast whether you are 2 inches away or 1 inch away or touching it. Not that it really matters all that
  3. Thanks. Well, I definitely kicked the tires on this one for a good while waiting for info to come in. As far as the find, living near a tourist infested beach didn't hurt my chances. I knew just the spot to test it out. 🙂 Cheers!
  4. After much deliberation I finally pulled the trigger on the Nokta/Makro pulse dive. My old pp crapped out and this seemed like a logical choice for me because A: it's a waterproof pinpointer and B: it doubles as an underwater hand-held detector. I've constantly been gathering feedback online about this machine as it had sparked my curiosity from the first glance. It arrived Wed in a nice heavy duty carrying case. The case isn't something I would lug around, but it is perfect for garage/closet storage. (or just a cool decoration on my cabinet) Taking into consideration the carrying case, t
  5. Finally found a video of someone using the pulse dive pinpointer on land. Seems pretty capable.
  6. Wow I'm surprised to see that. I've heard that air-testing pulse detectors is no't always reliable. I've also seen other comparison videos that show the pulse dive picking things up in the ground that the quest does not. People rave that the pulse dive is better. I have never used either so I can't speak from experience yet. I'd still rather have the pulse dive based on the fact that it doubles as a pin pointer as well.
  7. I love my Lesche. Paid $50 for it from Colonial. With that said, that digging tool posted back on the 1st page is a steal at that price. A quick google turned up this site which has a number of affordable (under $50) digging tools in the UK.https://www.crawfordsmd.com/metal-detecting-accessories/digging-tools/trowels The Evo Extreme looks not bad. The Shark tooth and Stingray would probably get the job done as well. If you're digging in the field you probably want a pointed tip and some teeth to cut through roots if needed. GL and HH!
  8. Yeah, i tend to think of it as a water toy that doubles as a pinpointer. Ill probably give it a go just because it makes so much sense for me, and im in the market for a new waterproof pin pointer anyways. Plus, it's not always practical to bring my nox with me, where i can just throw this in a backpack or stick it with my snorkel gear. Pretty discreet too as the beaches here can get overrun with tourists. Anyways sounds fun so I'm excited. We'll see how it goes. And should you ever find yourself back out here, the coffee is on me! Cheers
  9. Not affiliated with them in any way so I'm just posting this for those interested. It seems Nokta/Makro have a pretty generous deal going on right now. If you purchase any Anfibio or Kruzer metal detector from them they will throw in a FREE Pulse Dive set, a hat and a plastic scooper. The deal ends on 12/31/19 and can be seen on their home page at noktadetectors.com Cheers
  10. Hey Steve, Just wondering if you got you hands on one of these yet and if so, what your general impression is? I'm considering picking one up out here for on Oahu for similar conditions. Also i'm curious if the the pin pointer tip would work out for normal beach/park hunting paired with my Nox. If so i think this little thing packs a lot of bang for the buck. It's actually hard to find reliable reviews for it online and on youtube. Most of the people posting vids are either working for Nokta Makro or speaking a foreign language. It seems like it's pretty durable, but still haven't been ab
  11. It's a good point. For example, if i'm beach hunting and I have a lot of time i don't mind digging more targets, but if i have limited time I might want to be a little pickier with what i dig. Still haven't had time to try out this update. I am however strongly considering getting a pulse dive as a snorkeling/scuba companion.
  12. I enjoy this guys equinox videos, and found this one pretty helpful.
  13. Hi all. I have a nox600. I love the new backlight update. The stock backlight was almost unusable, and way too bright. I actually almost sold the detector because the backlight was so bright, i never understood why it was so bright, and i'm glad they decided to correct the situation. Anyways I'm not that smart, but i'm trying to make sense of all this F2 stuff surrounding the new update. It's hard to get simple information for the 600 and I don't want to continue to further confuse myself, so i'm just going to ask and perhaps this can also help others: The 600 with the 2.0+ upda
