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 Vibraprobe 560Use feel to know where the target is
Uses a 9v battery. Point the tip upwards to turn it on. It turns off automatically after one minute of not detecting any metal. No switches to break, n oexternally moving parts. Comfortable to use and strong from probing in packed soil
Find the general location with your MD, cut a slice in the grasss and probe with this. When you are within an inch of your target, it vibrates in your hand. The closer you get, the faster it vibrates. Reach in with your other hand and pull out your coin, ring, etc.
TOTALLY waterproof and submersible. Don't be afraid to drop this in the water.
It has an auto shut off after one minute of not detecting metal so when I am probing a lot of soil, I reset the time-out by pointing it at something metal like my shoelace eyelet, metal shovel (when using one) or a metal part on my MD.
When battery is going out, it will tend to act squirrely but that is well over 30 hours of use.
1 year warranty, great communication from the manufacturer.
Best price is via DJSdetectors.com, $20 cheaper than street price.
You don't need to see any blinky lights or hear any sounds to know where your target is. Go by feel. Move along to your next target.
