Most helpful review for Automax Precision v4Jedi precision pointer. hehe
The Automax v4 is a most clutzy pinpointer. It is long and extremely awkward as well as an un balanced device. If you carry it and have long arms you'll be able to draw it from your belt. A lengthy rigid round shaft of almost 12 inches topped with a housing for the controls, speaker, battery housing. Then another 5 inch long handle.
Overall a device that June could fend off Darth Vader in a pinch. If you can get this ungainly thing into the hole where you are seeking the coin target it's length is difficult to deal with. Your trying to pinpoint with nearly two feet of pinpointer. The electronics are less than sensitive and you will need to zero it out before use.
The battery condition causes a drift so a fresh nine volt is a must. You can select speaker or vibrate dor indication, not both. When set up you might getneed to get within an inch of the search object before thus things will chime off of vibrate. Sensitivity sucks!
I think this thing needs a major redesign and shrinking. The circuit is mediocre and I never use mine.

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!
