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 Vibraprobe 560Use 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.
