Most helpful review for Garrett Pro PointerGreat Pinpointer!
I have used the Garrett Pro-Pointer for going on two years now and it hasn't caused me any real problems.
It comes with its own holster which holds the Pro-pointer securely and is ruggedly built. The Pro-pointer itself is built the same way, strong, compact, light weight and meant to give you years of trouble free use.
Depth wise it will air test a penny out to about 1 1/2 inches and is very good at finding your target as its osculating tone will rapidly increase in volume the closer you get to the target.
It is also water resistance and can be made 100% waterproof by covering up the two tiny little speaker holes with "Plumber's Goop" which also helps quiet it down. I have found that the LED light is barely bright enough to use in low light conditions and the Pro-pointer won't hit on very small gold, but for everyday use it works just great and is a wonderful little pinpointer!
Oh, by the way you will get several months or more use out of one 9 volt battery, but carry a spare as it will give out without much advance warning... Good hunting!

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.
