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.

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.
