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.

Jedi precision pointer. hehe
The Automax v4 is a most clutzy pinpointer. It is long and extremely awkward as well as an un balanced device. If you carry it and have long arms you'll be able to draw it from your belt. A lengthy rigid round shaft of almost 12 inches topped with a housing for the controls, speaker, battery housing. Then another 5 inch long handle.
Overall a device that June could fend off Darth Vader in a pinch. If you can get this ungainly thing into the hole where you are seeking the coin target it's length is difficult to deal with. Your trying to pinpoint with nearly two feet of pinpointer. The electronics are less than sensitive and you will need to zero it out before use.
The battery condition causes a drift so a fresh nine volt is a must. You can select speaker or vibrate dor indication, not both. When set up you might getneed to get within an inch of the search object before thus things will chime off of vibrate. Sensitivity sucks!

I think this thing needs a major redesign and shrinking. The circuit is mediocre and I never use mine.
