Most helpful review for Nokta Pointer

Nokta waterproof pointer
Wow......The family owned company of Nokta/Makro really improved the Makro pointer in this new Nokta pointer. First lets look to the positives which are many.
Pro's
-Waterproof to 3 feet
-10 sensitivity settings
-LED built in flashlight
-Works off a simple 9 volt battery
-Can be used audible, audible/vibration, or vibration only -Comes in hi-viz orange
-Replaceable probe covers
-Inactivity alarm for location

Con's -If any it would be the speaker hole in the operation controls of the unit.

If you have you hand cupped over the end it is hard to hear the audible if wearing headphones. The sensitivity settings being more numerous than it's brother company of Makro is great. It really allows one to dial in the pointer to get a close approximation of distance from the probe once you learn those distances for the setting you set it to. The real big plus to a unit like this is once you get it dirty, being waterproof, it can be cleaned very easily by running it under a spigot or faucet. The system is very well thought out and quite honestly if anyone ever tries one of these out will more than likely never use another brand. I am not sure much more could be improved on other than maybe some little cosmetic things but these aren't really worth squabbling over.

Goes deep.
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.
