  1. How does the PI-iKing compare to other scuba detectors? My son is forever dropping things from his yacht (including keys, phones, tools, fishing rods, spearguns etc).. Although he’s a good scuba diver and spear-fisherman, where his yacht is anchored at the mouth of a tidal river the visibility is always close to zero.. Although he’s had a couple of successful duck-dives, he’s found the best way to recover lost metallic items has been to attach a powerful Neodymium recovery magnet (pulling force of 68 kg) to a rope and trawling it behind his tender.. I must admit his ingenuity surprised me
  2. Well, I took the plunge and bought my first Nokta-Makro product. I went to my nearest dealer and he had one left. Just the base pinpointer without coil. This actually worked out better for me because I was primarily interested in the 8" coil and didn't want to have to purchase the 5.5" which I doubt I'll ever use. So I paid just $99 for the base unit and he ordered me a coil for $84. This way I pay $183 and get the coil I want, rather than $160 and $84 = $244. Doing it this way, you would not get the nifty carry case however. You'd have to order that separate if you want it. In a few days when
  3. I just finished the next iteration of my 9V to AAA battery adapter for my Pro-Pointer AT (Carrot). You can read about it in my blog post that will be uploaded soon (see my profile for the link, if you're that curious), but most of the "juice" is in the pictures. In case you're wondering (or you don't recall my prior blog posts about this building process😞 1. Yes, waterproof integrity is maintained.2. Yes, the performance when using this adapter is identical to using a regular 9V battery.3. Yes, this can still use a regular 9V battery.4. Yes, runtime is less than with a regular 9V bat
  4. Seeing how Whites is out of business now , I decided I should get a replacement shell for my trx before they are unavailable and I wear mine out like my old Garrett pro pointer. I ordered from Serious Detecting LLC . $34.93 with free shipping. Not trying to advertise for them, I have just made purchases from them before so thought I'd get it there. Also seen some available from others on E-bay. Sure hated to see White's close their doors.
  5. Hey guys! I was lucky enough to test one of the first sample 8” coil units For the Pulse Dive and what I found was very pleasing! From the beginning I was hoping that Nokta|Makro would make a larger coil for the PulseDive so I was very excited when I heard from Dilek that they were doing exactly that! I was given an 8” coil to test and although I admit that it was essentially a finished product already! My first concern was that the larger coil would be too easy to twist off accidentally due to being larger and having more leverage but upon receiving I found they had already
  6. I know the carrot is highly thought of but I have seen some heavy users say the tip can wear and expose things. I am looking at the Pulse Two in One and like what I see including what seems to be a better protected tip. Another option is the Quest Scuba Tector again with additional tip protection. Problem is both are kinda new and I have seen some bashing, especially on the Quest. The thing is no matter how many whistles and bells something has it's basic function has to work or nothing else matters. I am not wed to any of these three choices; just the ones that my research has turned up
  7. I saw this posted on an instagram account. Dwight has done promo stuff for NokMak so it shouldn’t be a hoax. Sent him a message as to a time frame and I will report back if he has any info unless Dilek has some info coming too. I had thought about getting one of the Pulse Dives for super hot summer snorkeling before but the option of a larger coil definitely adds to the appeal.
  8. Yes the old saying is true most of the time. Well pump goes out and you miss the convenience of water when you are thirsty. Well my F-Pulse started acting up with erratic beeping. Put a fresh set of batteries in and still it was not acting right. Decided to leave the batteries out overnight and the pointer actually started working but within a few minutes the same thing. Thinking oh no, I bet the warranty has expired, I frantically searched until I found my paperwork and it looks like I have 3 weeks until the 2 year warranty expires. Contacted customer support, via email and Felix emaile
  9. I've seen videos of the Simplex and some pinpointers interfering with each other. Is this still a problem? I didn't assume a software update could fix this because 12khz is really close to most pinpointers. I own a Garrett carrot that I use with the Nox and a XP MI-6 with the Deus. I didn't want to buy the Simplex and then have to buy a new pinpointer also because of the interference.
  10. hello! i own fisher f-pulse pointer my problem is tha batteries started to leak and i needed to repair my on/off button, but i accidently scratched my pcb and my Q1 component is missing is anyone owning fischer f-pulse and would open it and tell me what integrated circuit it is? thanks Jacob
  11. The hardest thing about the Fisher F-Pulse pinpointer was just getting one. Like everything else these days delays seem to be the norm. I just got back from a road trip however and was happy to find my new F-Pulse waiting for me. I suppose these days it is important to note I bought this myself from a regular dealer. This is going to be the simplest review I have ever done. I like a pinpointer that is waterproof. Check. I like a pinpointer that can be operated with one hand. The F-Pulse has a large side button operated with my thumb. Check. I like a pinpointer that can operate silently in
  12. Hi there, is it normal that on air and on the ground my nokta pulse dive can't find my 18k wedding ring???
  13. Dear Valued Members, We are proud to announce our new PulseDive Scuba Detector and Pointer that features our patented design! With the PulseDive, a user can transform their Scuba Detector into a Pinpointer and vice versa in a matter of seconds! PulseDive is a very competitive and great product not only with its design, but also with its price point at $189 for the 2-in-1 set that comes in a fancy, water resistant, hard-shell carrying case and other accessories including a security lanyard! Why should you pay for a scuba detector and a pinpointer separately when you can get them both wit
  14. So my minelab pro find 35 has just arrived and it's not vibrating. Any easy fix?
  15. This little thing actually kills it! My cousin and I have been using the pulse dive in salt water exclusively and although it has a small coil, the ability to swing this thing like mad hugely make up for that fact! So far I’ve found the design/ quality of the PulseDive to be very ideal for salt water hunting. The machine simply beeps and buzzes in your hand, is easily audible through the water and there is practically no maintenance other than just cleaning the rubber seal/gasket every now and then but there is no knobs, cables, headphones or anything that I can see deteriorating o
  16. I am trying to decide on my first PP. Its between a Garrett AT Pro, Minelab 35, or Pulse Dive. The primary use is probably on land with some use at the beach as well. Maybe a 70/30 split between the 2. I like the Pulse Dive bc I also scuba and having that ability is a plus. The Garrett being US based was my first choice as it appears to be the most common in use these days. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. If it makes any difference I am using a Minelab 600.
  17. I just sent two of my orange Pro-Pointers in because they were falsing badly. I had taken one apart and was unable to make it work. In fact, I really messed it up to the point it was a hopeless cause. The capacitor was bad on that one, and I assume it was the same thing for the other one as well. Garrett took care of me and gave me a new outside and inside (they both look new, so I'm not sure if the guts are new or fixed. Anyway, for the repair and shipping back to me, it was $80 total. Great customer service!
  18. Two unique pulse induction pinpointers/detectors compared....
  19. My pro find 35 keeps beeping when I change the sensitivity to higher. Is this normal?
  20. I myself don’t see the advantage of a folding handle but I guess it makes it more compact. Chuck
  21. 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
  22. Looking to get a new pin pointer (to assist in nugget shooting) as mine is 7 years old. There must be better more sensitive ones available these days. Input would be much appreciated......Thanks!
  23. 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?
  24. A Quick Look at The Nokta / Makro Pulse Dive I was fortunate enough to field test a prototype of this amazing device and was immediately impressed by the Pulse Dive’s rugged, professional feel. The solid “heft” of the device made all other pinpointers I’ve tried feel like flimsy toys. It’s also a great, practical concept—a waterproof diving detector with a deep 5.5” (14 cm.) coil for that converts in a second to a regular pinpointer. The Pulse Dive features 5 levels of Sensitivity adjustment, selectable vibration, light and tone alert and can be paired with your headphones via a built-
