  1. Published on Nov 4, 2017 This test / review of the new Minelab Pro-Find 35 and the Pro-Find 15 pin pointer is for American Digger Magazine. The first ever recovery speed test of the new Ferrous Tone ID while switching targets! Also the first maximum detection depth test of these units. Side scanning was also tested and provided consistent results to the tip on both units, it was left out of the video to cut down on the length, but will be included in later videos. More on the new Minelab Pro-Find 15 & Pro-Find pinpointers here.
  2. Minelab is pleased to announce that the new PRO-FIND Series will be available for purchase from November 13th, 2017 onwards. *Initial availability may be limited in some regions. Please contact your local dealer for specific price and availability information. PRO-FIND Series pinpointers feature Minelab’s Detector Interference Free (DIF) technology. DIF significantly reduces interference with an operating metal detector, when the pinpointer is switched off, by disengaging the pinpointer coil’s magnetic field.

  3. Used round HF coil today for 1.5 hours. The MI-6 performed flawless when using with detector. No hang ups with audio, coil linking, or stuck screen or any what I call unacceptable delays as far as transition when powering on or off the pinpointer. Nice performance.
  4. I have not used my MI-6 pinpointer very much at all since receiving. I am so accustomed to my Garret Propointer it is hard for me to try and get used to a new pinpointer and a new detector coil (HF elliptical) at the same time. Anyway today I used the MI-6 this morning on a 1.5 hour hunt. Tonally I like the pointer, and I like the pulse option tone wise and love how the pointer ratchets tone as the points nears metal. Now the bad. This pointer has problems when used with elliptical HF coil. I witnessed many times coil loss when turning pointer off, would have long
  5. From http://www.minelab.com/usa/customer-care/product-notices?article=319527 18 Sep 2017 - Pending release of new PRO-FIND Series Pinpointers Minelab is pleased to announce the pending release of our next generation PRO-FIND Series Pinpointers. PRO-FIND Series Pinpointers assist in accurately locating targets at the point of extraction where a metal detector coil cannot fit. This results in smaller holes, less environmental disruption and faster target recovery time. There will be two new PRO-FIND Pinpointers available, the PRO-FIND 15, and the PRO-FIND 35, both o
  6. Received my MI-6 pinpointer today. A few comments. I have tested and used a little bit. Nice addition I feel to anyone operating a Deus unit. Will benefit both Deus lite package users as well as packages containing the remote unit. The pinpointer if a person has the remote, will have no problem knowing if the pinpointer is switched on or off just by glancing at the remote, not so with Deus lite package ( looking at headphone module). Unit easily pairs to actual Deus unit. Notice I said Deus Lite package above (no remote). This brings up a good question f
  7. With all the Equinox hype, these seem to have being overlooked, if true that is. I cant find anything on Minelab website. http://allmetalmode.com/mikes-blog/2017/09/16/minelab-pro-pointer-35-my-pinpointer-dream-come-true/
  8. I was a big fan of the Carrot, but then mine went on the fritz. I sent it in 10 days ago (under warranty) so hopefully returns as good-as-new. In the meantime I bought a White's TRX, which is about $20 more expensive. It compensates (somewhat) on the price difference by operating more cheaply (if you go the non-rechargaeable route, anyway) on two AA's. It will also work on a 9V, like the Carrot, but why would you want to except in a pinch? When the carrot comes back I'll do some side-by-side comparisons. But I've gotten used to the TRX and really like it.
  9. The Scuba Tector is made by Deteknix and is a great water detector if you are just looking for rings ( maybe ) and coins. I was wondering around the net and was looking at MD-Hunter.com and here was a picture of my Scuba. I click on the picture of it and it went to three videos. I pick one of the videos I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It couldn't detect gold chain. So here I go digging out gold chain i'd found in the past. It didn't make any difference being one two are all three in a ball the detector didn't see them. I pulled out some nuggets and the results was the same as in no
  10. PINPOINTER XP MI-6 The new MI-6 Pinpointer has a wide range of innovative features compared to other products on today’s market: Audio signal is transmitted directly to the DEUS Interference suppression system between MI-6 / DEUS. Lithium rechargeable battery with long battery life. Waterproof: 6 m / 20 ft. Advanced levels of adjustments via the DEUS: 50 levels of sensitivity Adjustable tones 2 audio modes Battery level indicator 4 programs MI-6 recovery mode - find a lost MI-6 even if it has been switched off for several
  11. I admit to have wondered about these little hand held detectors / pinpointers. The main thing being do they really deliver significant depth advantages over standard pinpointers? These are only air tests but at least you get an idea. Nice depth chart at the end of the video you can screen capture.
  12. GMT Pin-Pointer I modified my GMT to fold down and hang on my pack belt. It works quite well with my GPZ 7000 with the monster 19” coil. If you lay the two detectors close together and manually tune the 7000 you will find a few relatively quiet EMI null frequencies. I normally run at frequency 22. When in use I lay the 19” coil behind me or far to side of the dig site to further minimize the interference. The GMT works well in the compacted length. It will still telescope out to full length for extended hunting in nail patches. Have a good day, Chet
  13. If this video is already on this forum,,,then it can be deleted here. Anyway,,,yes this pinpointer is related to version 4 update,,,pinpointer can be used with any detector really. A good video,,to get folks up to speed on.
  14. I Have used my ML pin pointer 100% of the time on the gold fields with great success. They do save a lot of time and guess work digging and locating targets in confined spaces. Here in oz we are going through extremely high summer temperatures with high humidity which makes for unpleasant prospecting at the moment. Recently I have found a new use for my pin pointer around the house. My wife wanted a picture mounted on the wall, so got the trusty pin pointer out and found the stud in the wall to fastern the mounting point to (we have a steel framed house). It got me thinking more on what I
  15. I have been thinking the other day as I was digging yet another deep hole with a sweet sound how I wish I could just reach for my small discriminating pin pointer. Something small like a Garrett ProPointer. I could reach for one in my back pocket and check it down in the hole and than I can decide to leave it or clean the trash out. Sure would save some time. Sure I can modify my Tesoro silver U max and make it a stubby disc pointer, but its too big for me to carry around as I have enough on my back all ready. I don't see any sense of nugget hunters with a vlf buying one, but for PI users wit
  16. I got a new Whites waterproof pinpointer last week. Dunno if its operator error or bad unit? I am using the AA batteries it came with. When I turn it on to pinpoint a coin, it is stable for about 10 seconds, but then it starts to sound off on every dirt clod within a foot diameter of the hole . If I can pinpoint the target quickly, its ok, if not? Well then I start cussing/screaming at it. The book says something about the Ground Grab thing but this is all black dirt, and hardly any ground minerals. Before I send it back and get the orange Garret Carrot Propointer, I thoug
  17. I think some people will like having some brighter color options... https://www.whiteselectronics.com/product/bullseye-trx-pinpointer-color/ White's is thinking of all you that already own a TRX. You can get replacement color shells at https://www.whiteselectronics.com/product/trx-replacement-shell-color/
  18. What pinpointers are everyone using? In the market for one myself.
  19. Just thinking about the possibilities, some assumptions are necessary to further the thought. Let's assume the Deus introduces the 5X9 coil as expected. We know the Deus is unique in that the coil is the detector, no control box mounted on the shaft. We know the audio and control functions are wireless and transmitted to a very small pocket sized controller or wireless headphones. The Deus seems to be very accurate on Ferrous, at what depth I can't be sure. So, other than something to function as a handle, the coil could be carried in a pouch or belt holster, brought out and switched on a
  20. Which pin pointers are compatible with Gold Racer and the Racer 2, The Minelab Pro Pointer was picked up by the Gold Racer any where within 5 feet of the coil while on or off. I used a White's TRX with a DFX and didn't have a problem. I sold the TRX before I bought the Gold Racer.
  21. Is there a more powerful/deeper alternative to the usual pinpointers.? Need a small handheld, waterproof nugget detector, with a 2"-4" coil, suitable for snorkelling in small streams. Alternatively, a backpack mounted normal detector(in a waterproof bag), with a tiny coil directly held in the hand, or on a small 6" handle, might work I know there is the NOKTA POINTER & GARRETT PRO POINTER AT. (Lacking depth, and sweep coverage) Also seen the DETECTOR PRO Pistol Probes, VIBRA QUATIC & VIBRA TECTOR 730, & FALCON MD20. Would any of these work for me? (Possibly too low a
  22. I just recently purchased the Garrett Carrot Pinpointer. I really like it. The issue is the GPZ7000 does not like to be within 4 feet of it. And that is with the pinpointer off. I swing the detector with my left arm. I put the pinpointer in my finds sack on my right rear belt side. Every time I swing right I would get a signal from the pinpointer. My pick, old pinpointer, and trash in the sack, no problem. But the Garrett Carrot sets the GPZ7000 off. I really like the pinpointer, but can't carry it with me. Will have to leave it with my water and lunch and go get it when the rare times I need
  23. Good look at the guts of yet another Garrett pinpointer clone at http://md-hunter.com/opening-the-gold-hunter-pinpointer-photos-whats-inside/ Lots of circuit there, kind of like a phone blows away computers made years ago there is an entire metal detector in a pinpointer these days.
