Let's Look What Them Find By ThisMetal Detector
Finally, Garrett added all those features everyone who uses a pin pointer has been wanting. Waterproof, adjustable sensitivity, easy to see / find color, lanyard ring, less spongy on/off, and a disable feature for the audible.
Admittedly, I haven't been able to try it underwater - which is what I'm really interested in - as the ice just came off the lakes here in MN. But I did rinse it completely under the sink after a muddy night out. No worries about the speaker, light, or on/off switch.
Its very sturdy and well-built - similar to the original black Pro Pointer.
On the medium sensitivity setting (default), its seems to have a slightly better depth range than my old Pro Pointer. I'm assuming that high sensitivity will be even greater.
On the whole, if you've never used a Pro Pointer and you metal detect, you're doing yourself a tremendous disservice. These tools reduce the time to find the target by at least half, if not more. It makes me wonder how much time I've wasted rechecking the hole or the plug with the detector, and all the unnecessary digging trying to find the item.
I consider this as valuable a tool as my detector itself. Worth every penny and the long wait for it to become available!

All I can say is Dang!!!! This baby makes metal detecting much easier. I have had my Garrett metal detector for years, and have spent a lot of time digging in holes and sometimes not finding the prize even though the detector continues to beep. Today my son and I tried the Pin Pointer for the first time. We found the coins shown in the photo below in about fifteen minutes in our park. In the grass area with little to no digging. When the metal detector beeped, I used the pin pointer and a coin probe that I also purchased and the coin was right where the pin pointer showed it to be. I will never go out to metal detect without this again. Time saved and more loot!
