  1. Have any of you long-timers used this machine? I cant seem to find a review on forum, but didnt dig too hard. I was thinking abt taping probe to stick to poke in holes in creek, at least down to that 4ft. range. perhaps idenify some areas to dredge next month.
  2. According to this thread.Link deleted since Findmall Forum update broke all old links I have looked at Xp's site, no update posted, still Feb 2017 version. This link here may be related to the why behind update. http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/deus/537969-mi-6-led-charging-manual-typo.html It may be the only thing Xp needs to do is change the date of the manual on their sites. I could be wrong though.
  3. I just received my new Pro-find 35 as I like that it disconnects from the battery and coil when shut off. I had and have the 25 still but have had problems with it. It ran fine for 2 years, but this year after detecting in a hole and detecting something in the hole, after pulling it out, it kept beeping and wouldn't stop until I shut it off, It does that all the time now. It now also is picked up by my detector. That has continued for the rest of the season and is no longer of any use. My friend, that I met up with in November, purchased a 25, removed it fresh from the box at camp, is acting
  4. Any comparative information on air test between the Garrett pro pointer and the Minelab pro find pin pointer?
  5. Has any one tried it in wet sand on the beach... I have sent video off to ML as mine does not perform anything like I expected on the beach. Hoping it is Faulty.
  6. From https://www.minelab.com/anz/go-minelabbing/treasure-talk/my-pro-find-35-review My PRO-FIND 35 Review by Brandon Neice By now you’ve probably read all about the Minelab PRO-FIND 35 handheld metal detecting pinpointer. You already know that it can distinguish ferrous metals from non-ferrous metals and that it’s fully submersible. And if you know that, then you most likely also know that the PRO-FIND 35 has built-in shielding so it won’t interfere with your metal detector (or your friends) and that it has built-in vibration for silent searching or for the hearing impaired. It al
  7. This quote from the report below caught my eye: "Aside from its obvious use as a pinpointer that helps you retrieve coins, I really feel like the PRO-FIND 35 can be a great standalone tool for people searching crevices for gold, ESPECIALLY those that are searching bedrock nooks and crannies in rivers. The PRO-FIND’s slim, waterproof design combined with high sensitivity and Ferrous Tone ID makes it a perfect tool to detect hard to reach places with the confidence of recovering only non-ferrous targets." The Pro-Find as far as I know is the first standard handheld metal detector pinpo
  8. In January 2018 issue of Lost Treasure page 44 you have a great review on both Pro -Finds 15 & 35 by Andy Sabisch. This looks as if this is the month for Minelab in Lost Treasure Mag. Chuck
  9. Steve, have you tested these also? If so, any info you can share?
  10. I was at an Outing this last weekend and was able to buy a Profind 35 pinpointer....I like it very much , seems to be real sensitive . It was a big help when using the GM1000 at finding the little bird shot that was the same color as the dirt in my scoop. It also found other lead targets and brass shells. I have not had it out coin hunting yet , but I do think it will be great.
  11. This isn't at all a detailed comparison, but this sub-forum seems to be right place to put it. I'm pretty sure these devices are no longer made for any detector models, but it might help someone thinking of buying a used one. I bought a used FX-1 (for Fisher F75) recently. I did look for reviews and found a few, but unless I read too fast those didn't tell the key features (particularly minuses). This is not meant to be an overall review like you'd find in a magazine. The other reviews you can find on the WWW do that. The main thing to know about this device is that it is effectively
  12. 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.
  13. 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. Read the Treasure Talk Blog "PRO-FIND and DIF Technology" by Gordon Heritag
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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/
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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
