Most helpful review for Sherlock Electronic ProbeBest Value In The Pinpointer World
I picked up one of these brand new for about $50 and its performance has amazed me so far. It is very small and compact and uses one 9-volt battery. I like the way it is constructed, and I like the impressive depth that it gets for a handheld pinpointer. It will detect nickels at 2 inches, but most other coins it goes about 1.5 inches, when you have it tuned right. It is pretty stable too. You press and hold the large push button in the center of the pinpointer to make it operate which is very convenient. A powerful led light will illuminate the area in front of the pinpointer when the button is pushed, making it valuable for night hunting.
This model does not vibrate, but it does beep loud and the indicator light changes color when going over metal items, which I prefer because you sometimes don't feel vibrations especially when wearing gloves. It is not waterproof though. I haven't used it in wet sand, but it maintains good depth in all the soils that I've used it in so far. But for me, the most important part is that I can use it next to my Explorer without having it act up (Can't say the same for the Bullseye II). I have owned and used the Merlin, BII, Automax, Falcon and Wizard, but this one beats them all in terms of depth and value. I haven't used the in-line probes which cost about three times as much, but the depth on this pinpointer is good enough for me. Plus, I am not forced to stick with one machine to use it. I might have just gotten a hot one but I hope all of them are the same cause I'm gonna get another one for my dad.

Most helpful review for Whites BullseyeBattery compartment design is a problem
I got this as a promotional add on with my Whites V3i. I've used it on 5-6 trips out. The thing would go off giving false tones as I lightly pressed it in the soil...then on my third trip I noticed the dang thing was not on half the time it was in a hole. I became really annoyed. Then an idea...opened up the battery cover and noticed the 9V sorta floating/bobbing in there. I placed a trig in there to create a tight fit between the battery and the cover and PRESTO, it has worked perfectly since then. I thinks its a great little pointer for the price. Whites needs to modify the battery to firmly fit into slots like a smoke detector battery.
I'm gonna go ahead and get the Garrett Pointer and keep this in my car for back-up.
