Most helpful review for Vibra-Quatic 2 PinpointerVibra-quatic 2
I will post my review here since this is the Vibraprobe 580's bigger brother. After reading all the reviews for the 580, this is what I consider to be the performance for the Vibra-Quatic 2 in a saltwater environment. First of all, the 2" tip seemed large at first, but after using it, it seems to be fine considering it requires some movement (a slow sweep speed) over the target. The tip does not get in the way of finding the object, even the smallest of ones such as ear rings, 3mm lead split shot, or the same size piece of aluminum foil or can slaw.
The sensitivity is very good, I got 1/2" on the above very small targets. That's acceptable, if it falls through the sand scoop, it's going to be close to the surface. The tip is durable and can be pushed around in the sand until the target is identified. 1 1/2" on a dime, 2" on a quarter, and up to 4" on larger objects. That's all the depth I need in a pinpointer. It does not turn off automatically like the 580, but I prefer that as it is easy to turn off when you are done.
I use it while hunting underwater with my Excalibur II, and since most targets are recovered just from pinpointing with my detector, the Vibra-Quatic only comes out when a very small object needs to be located. Super long battery life, even using NiMH rechargeables. I am very happy with it, with no complaints whatsoever.

Most helpful review for Treasure Mate PinpointerThe Best So Far
I have been using a Treasure Mate pinpointer for a little over a month now and am very happy. It will pinpoint coins at greater depth than any similar device I have used. Pennies can be located at 1.5 to 1.75 inches and one half dollar was located a little over two inches in wet soil. The Treasure Mate is also quite useful with multiple targets. For instance I found where someone had lost 12 coins in one small area. After the area the coins were in was determined, I turned off the Minelab and used the Treasure Mate to locate the coins.
There are two small negatives. First I do get some interference when using the Treasure Mate in close proximity with my Minelab Explorer II. Second you need a small phillips head screw driver to change batteries. For me, these are small items when compared to the benefits this pinpointer is capable providing. I will not go coin hunting without it!!!
