is the BEST pinpointer?" A common question. Here you can learn...
Fisher F-Pulse pinpointer, a pulse-induction model pinpointer:
Comments: the Makro Pointer pinpointer is the only pinpointer that is waterproof to 1 meter, which is about 3 feet.
It will also shield its signal while not in use, so that the signal does not interfere with the operation of your metal detector. It also has a powewrful LED flashlight built right in to the unit.
Comments: White's Bullseye TRX is the perfect companion to your metal detector.
No tuning. Completely
automatic. Powerful LED light illuminates target areas when the
button is pushed. Powered for up to 20 hours on two AA batteries
or a single 9-volt battery.
Pistol Probe pinpointer by Detector Pro: MSRP $189.95
Comments: this is the deepest of the probes. It needs a vibrate mode,
VCO, or gradient audio like the Garrett has as you close in on the
target. Detector Pro also makes a Uni-Probe which DOES have that gradient
audio approach at $279.95. That probe can convert into a full blown
pulse detector. Also: Uniprobe Headphones... they incorporate the
same circuitry to bring you a high quality Detector Pro headphone
set at $349.95.
Whites Bullseye II 120mm pinpointer: MSRP $119.95
distributors/local dealers have been replacing Bullseye II's that don't
hold up to the abuse as some users like to force that probe into the
soil to find the target. Many of my customers eventually upgrade to
a Garrett Pro Pointer or a Detector Pro Pistol Probe.
Vibraprobe 580 pinpointer: OUR PRICE $139.95 MSRP $149.95
580 has been just introduced and replaces the shorter lived 570. Like
the 560, it is unique and you can submerge it under water which makes
it ideal to use at the splash line in lakes such as Lake Tahoe, or at
PRO Pointer pinpointer from Garrett: OUR PRICE $127.45 MSRP $150.00

Rating by Big Valley:
F-Point pinpointer by Fisher: OUR PRICE $69.95 MSRP $79.95
