Most helpful review for Nokta PointerNokta 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.
-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.

Most helpful review for Garrett Pocket ProbeGarrett Pro-Pointer....One Great Pinpointer!
I have owned several different pinpointing probes and still have three different ones in my collection. Some of them were really sensitive and some you almost had to touch the target to get a response. I saw a review recently of a really sensitive one and the user dug a hole large enough to plant a tree. It is no wonder so many areas are being closed to detecting. I thought a pinpointer was suppose to help us dig smaller holes?? Of all the ones that I have had, I think the sensitivity of the Garrett Pro-Pointer is perfect for my detecting style. It is sensitive enough to detect tiny gold ear rings and gold nuggets as small as 2 or 3 grains.
Sense I use headphones I really love the vibration that increases as you get closer to the target. I especially like the fact that it handle rain, slop and an ocassional dunking. The O-ring seal on the battery cover was my first clue that it was capable of handling a wet environment. Since I use headphones I put a piece of Scotch tape over the speaker vent to add a little extra moisture protection. I hunt into the dark evening hours from time to time and the LED light a very useful tool. It just plain feels good in your hand and definitly has a quality rugged feel.
It slips in and out of the holster very easy, almost to easy. If it gets turned wrong in can fall out. I generally just carry it in my pants pocket.
As I said in the title, I think this is one Great
