Most helpful review for Nokta RS Pinpointer

Among the best!
If you want something easy to use and good quality, I would highly recommend this pinpointer. Somewhat similar to the Garrett ProPointer, it has auto tune with no knobs to fool with. One of the features that I really like is that the LED flashlight turns off automatically during daylight hours and turns on in the dark, which saves your battery power.

The only thing that I don't like is the switch, which is not water proof like the Garrett PinPointer and could use some improvement. That's why I only gave it 4 stars for durability. Other than that, I am truly satisfied with this pinpointer. I also did the air test like on the video shown by Kellyco and sure enough, it started beeping at about 2" on a quarter. All I can say is go to Kellyco website and watch the video and judge for yourself. I've also seen it for sale on eBay.

Use feel to know where the target is
Uses a 9v battery. Point the tip upwards to turn it on. It turns off automatically after one minute of not detecting any metal. No switches to break, n oexternally moving parts. Comfortable to use and strong from probing in packed soil

Find the general location with your MD, cut a slice in the grasss and probe with this. When you are within an inch of your target, it vibrates in your hand. The closer you get, the faster it vibrates. Reach in with your other hand and pull out your coin, ring, etc.

TOTALLY waterproof and submersible. Don't be afraid to drop this in the water.

It has an auto shut off after one minute of not detecting metal so when I am probing a lot of soil, I reset the time-out by pointing it at something metal like my shoelace eyelet, metal shovel (when using one) or a metal part on my MD.

When battery is going out, it will tend to act squirrely but that is well over 30 hours of use.

1 year warranty, great communication from the manufacturer.

Best price is via DJSdetectors.com, $20 cheaper than street price.

You don't need to see any blinky lights or hear any sounds to know where your target is. Go by feel. Move along to your next target.
