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 Garrett Pocket ProbeGarrett Pro-Pointer....One Great Pinpointer!
I have owned several different pinpointing probes and still have three different ones in my collection. Some of them were really sensitive and some you almost had to touch the target to get a response. I saw a review recently of a really sensitive one and the user dug a hole large enough to plant a tree. It is no wonder so many areas are being closed to detecting. I thought a pinpointer was suppose to help us dig smaller holes?? Of all the ones that I have had, I think the sensitivity of the Garrett Pro-Pointer is perfect for my detecting style. It is sensitive enough to detect tiny gold ear rings and gold nuggets as small as 2 or 3 grains.
Sense I use headphones I really love the vibration that increases as you get closer to the target. I especially like the fact that it handle rain, slop and an ocassional dunking. The O-ring seal on the battery cover was my first clue that it was capable of handling a wet environment. Since I use headphones I put a piece of Scotch tape over the speaker vent to add a little extra moisture protection. I hunt into the dark evening hours from time to time and the LED light a very useful tool. It just plain feels good in your hand and definitly has a quality rugged feel.
It slips in and out of the holster very easy, almost to easy. If it gets turned wrong in can fall out. I generally just carry it in my pants pocket.
As I said in the title, I think this is one Great
