Most helpful review for Detectorpro Pistol ProbeGoes deep.
Very sensitive. I like the volume control. Turn it down for quiet areas or crank it up for heavy car traffic areas. I also use in silent mode sometimes looking at the flashing led which is cool. Another reason I love this pinpointer is since it has good depth it can be used to pinpoint before digging, which is awesome.
Goes 4 to 6 inches and you are hitting the spot dead on within one square inch.! One thing I should mention is that it is a pulsating pinpointer so you have to use small side to side motion to get best results.
Once you feel how to use it, the depth is great advantage. It can get tricky if what your digging up is on the side of hole though. Just try pinpointing with your detector or the pointer itself before digging. I love it, you can do a lot with it.

Most helpful review for Automax Precision v2Great 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.
