Love It

June 08, 2012
I have had my pocket uniprobe for 3 years now and I love it. It works fantastic. My only problem with it has been that the cable in the connector backed out a bit and lost contact, sent it in and got it back within a week no charge due to it being under warranty, it promptly did it again but this time we fixed it ourselves with a small 0-ring to hold it in place.

The Pocket Uniprobe Rocks

April 15, 2009
Best pinpointer I have ever owned. 3.5-4.5 inches on coins, very easy to use, and good build quality. Turns on and off with a flick of a switch, doesn't wear out. It also has the ability to use ear bud headphones so you can hear the pinpoiter underneath your primary detector headphones. I actually like this model better than the headphone Uniprobe because you get to choose whatever primary headphones you want and still can hear the pinpointer loud and privately through the ear buds. There is also a loud speaker option on the Pocket Uniprobe which is not an option on the Uniprobe headphones.

I like the Pocket Uniprobe better than the Detectorpro Pistol Probe because you can lose the pistol probe easier because the Pocket Uniprobe is clipped snug and strong to your waist where as the pistol probe is a loose handheld pinpointer. Plus the fact that the pistol probe looks similar to an actual gun which might get you noticed or maybe into trouble in crowded places. Finally, I like the Pocket Uniprobe over the Sunray probe because although the Sunray probe gets about the same depth as a Pocket Uniprobe, the Pocket Uniprobe can be used in conjunction with ANY and ALL metal detectors where as with the Sunray probe you have to commit to a SINGLE compatible detector or you can't use it. However as with all the other high end, high performance pinpointers, the Pocket Uniprobe costs a lot. If you can get a used one for $180 or less then I say go for it.

Best pocket probe I've ever used.

May 01, 2008
I have been using a Tesoro DeLeon and a Fisher 1266X for years, and using hand held pinpointers with some success. After my last vibrating model finally died, I mentioned that I was going to get a Uniprobe, but couldn't afford it. My wife, quick to pick up on my needs... grinnn.... contacted a local dealer, Gene Scullion of Badger Metal Detectors in Monona, WI and ordered my unit. Gene also makes an adapter plug that allows the Pocket Uniprobe to be connected directly to my headphones through the detectors circuits. That way, I turn on the Uniprobe and the detector circuit is blocked and all I hear in my headphones is the signal from the Uniprobe.

I attached the small Maroboro hard pack sized (a little bigger) control box to the stem of my detector having installed a leather loop on the stem for the Uniprobe's belt hook to go through. Then, a strip of velcro taped on the stem of the machine below that and the Uniprobe's wand is kept attached there until needed. It's not nearly as complicated as it sounds. Anyway, the Uniprobe is a PI detector. It is powerful enough to detect coin sized items at 4 1/2 to 5 inches. Much more powerful than any other pin-pointer, but costs much more money too. Detector Pro even sells a full sized coil to go with the unit if you want a PI for salt water beach work. I highly recommend this unit if you can afford to buy one. I've never seen one discounted, but who knows. The more sold, the price could come down. Lets hope.
