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 Whites BullseyeBattery compartment design is a problem
I got this as a promotional add on with my Whites V3i. I've used it on 5-6 trips out. The thing would go off giving false tones as I lightly pressed it in the soil...then on my third trip I noticed the dang thing was not on half the time it was in a hole. I became really annoyed. Then an idea...opened up the battery cover and noticed the 9V sorta floating/bobbing in there. I placed a trig in there to create a tight fit between the battery and the cover and PRESTO, it has worked perfectly since then. I thinks its a great little pointer for the price. Whites needs to modify the battery to firmly fit into slots like a smoke detector battery.
I'm gonna go ahead and get the Garrett Pointer and keep this in my car for back-up.
