The Sun Ray Inline Probe...

Sun Ray I guess sells a version for the Elite/GT and then one for the older Sovereigns. Not sure why that is. Anybody? Either way, I think there was also a "big box" version of these probes that had a bigger box than later ones. I remember reading where people would mod the big box one and cut down the size of the box because I guess (?) it was rather easy to do with a lot of dead air space in there I think. Somebody who knows more about that can chime in and correct me if I'm wrong. Many love these probes as you hear the target through the headphones for one thing. You throw a switch on the box that disconnects your search coil and switches to the search probe. You can also keep your detector in discriminate to only hear the "good" target in the hole or throw your detector into all metal mode to hear everything.

I had these probes on a few of my Explorers. I prefer the Garrett Pro Pointer myself for not adding weight to the shaft or having the extra mess of wires and the hassle of using two hands to unsnap/snap the probe to the shaft. Plus I can sit down my detector and use my Pro Pointer to help a friend find a target, and of course can use the Pro Pointer with any machine as it's not tied to one detector it can only be used for like the Sun Ray. I also don't want my pinpointer discriminating out targets anyway because when I bend down I want to dig any and all metal out of the hole in case a coin is hid by a nail or something, and also so I won't see hear that junk next time.

But anyway, many people swear by these Sun Ray probes and just love them...
