Great 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!

Great Performance-Bad Quality
I got a Automax with a Kellyco detector several years back. I had the original rocker switch and it broke the third time out, but Kellyco replaced it with the new slide type switch. This switch is more durable and has not failed me. This handheld pinpointer has more range than the others I have tried and the length is appreciated if you use one of the deep seeking detectors available. Here is the problem. The shaft is made in sections and out of the three automax pinpointers that I have currently, all have broke at the first joint. I have fixed them all myself with a three inch section of plastic pipe that I split and epoxied over the break. I would never pay the price Kellyco asks for this new, but I buy them used or like new over the internet. One tip to get the maximum range is to turn the sensitivity knob until it starts beeping and just barely and I mean barely turn it back. Sometimes it will give a short beep when you stick the probe in the hole, but don't fret, this is normal. I have to adjust mine every time I dig a new hole, but this is common to all handhelds that I have used.
