Proportional audio/vibration response

For greater accuracy the PRO-FIND 25 indicates the depth of buried targets with a proportional vibration and audio response. As the pinpointer probe gets closer to the target, the intensity of vibration and audio increases.

Adjustable sensitivity

Narrow down the exact location of targets with the PRO-FIND 25's adjustable sensitivity. This can be increased to locate deep targets or decreased to precisely locate small targets.

Two mode operation

Select from two modes – Audio & Vibrate or Vibrate Only for silent searching.

Durable water resistant construction

Submersible probe end. The whole pinpointer can be washed under running water.

Probe side sensitivity

Probe side detection area (360°) allows targets to easily be located in the walls of the hole.

Auto power off

To save battery life, the PRO-FIND 25 switches off after eight minutes of inactivity.

LED flash light

Easily see targets when pinpointing in low light conditions and in deep holes.

Holster included

Belt mounted holster to comfortably carry pinpointer.

VLF Technology VLF Technology

VLF (Very Low Frequency) is a conventional single frequency sine wave transmission technology. This reliable design has greater noise immunity to variable ground conditions.

Detector Interference Free technology

The advanced design of the PRO-FIND 25 removes false signals and noise, commonly associated with other pinpointers. DIF technology eliminates interference with an operating metal detector, when it is switched off, by disengaging the coil's magnetic field.

Introducing the NEW Underwater Metal Detector Probe!

The first compact, lightweight all-in-one metal detector headphone, highly sensitive ground probe and pulse inductantion underwater metal detector built inside the headphone earcups!

Underwater Uniprobe

Uniprobe Earphone

Controls: Pulse frequency, threshold, headphone volume. Connectors: Left cable for headphone connection to your detector. Right cable for probe searchcoil or optional 8" or 11" DetectorPro PI searchcoils.

Now you can have a waterproof probe for underwater searches in your favorite dive spots!
The underwater Uniprobe is made up of our Headhunter PI's main electronics in the headset and adding the probe. The Probe can be easily upgraded to a regular PI metal detector by adding rods and a coil. This probe can be used underwater in places that you can not get near with a conventional searchcoil — around rocks, crevices or any other tight spot.

  • Search mode: threshold search, slow-motion.
  • Operating environments: waterproof for salt & fresh underwater use.
  • Cables: heavy-duty coil cord for probe with high-quality underwater connector.
  • Rods: optional for conversion to pulse detector
  • Searchcoils: optional DetectorPro 8" or 11" PI
  • Breakdown: compact fold and carry.
  • Battery: (2) 9-volt alkaline batteries (recommended).
  • Battery life: dependent on the on/off cycling during use, rated currently up to 10 hours (alkaline) continuous "on" use.
  • Applications: jewelry, relic, wreck diving, gold sniping and coin hunting.
  • Warranty: 2 years.
  • NOTE: specifications and features subject to change without notice.

Detector Pro UNIPROBE

You are looking at a value-added industry first from DetectorPro! The first compact all-in-one probe/headphone/pulse inductance metal detector in the world famous DetectorPro design. UniProbe is a new high-powered pulse inductance probe that can be switched on or off during hunting and retrieval with your metal detector... Or it can be used just as a set of high-quality detector headphones... Or with an optional PI searchcoil and rods, it can be turned into a complete PI metal detector! Not only does this probe contain today's most innovative Pulse Inductance electronics, it is the first probe that has all the electronics built into the headphones. All of this is possible because of our innovative microcircuitry and packaging. The UniProbe has been engineered to perform in all ground minerals and on both salt and fresh water beaches too with up to 5-6" depth on coins in the retrieval hole. UniProbe is a true universal application probe/ metal detector and will open up a whole new world of accurate retrieval for you. Too many valuable coins, relics and jewelry are damaged everyday by the detectorist's inability to accurately pinpoint with large searchcoils. Isn't it about time you stopped damaging your treasures?

High-quality removable 1/4" coiled headphone cable with molded plug and locking connector included.
