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.

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.
