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.

Great Performance-Bad Quality
I got a Automax with a Kellyco detector several years back. I had the original rocker switch and it broke the third time out, but Kellyco replaced it with the new slide type switch. This switch is more durable and has not failed me. This handheld pinpointer has more range than the others I have tried and the length is appreciated if you use one of the deep seeking detectors available. Here is the problem. The shaft is made in sections and out of the three automax pinpointers that I have currently, all have broke at the first joint. I have fixed them all myself with a three inch section of plastic pipe that I split and epoxied over the break. I would never pay the price Kellyco asks for this new, but I buy them used or like new over the internet. One tip to get the maximum range is to turn the sensitivity knob until it starts beeping and just barely and I mean barely turn it back. Sometimes it will give a short beep when you stick the probe in the hole, but don't fret, this is normal. I have to adjust mine every time I dig a new hole, but this is common to all handhelds that I have used.
