Pin pointers

Been away from diggin for some time now. I see quite a few pin pointers out there, but not many comments about them. The comments I usually see are on the Garrett. Are they all pretty equal or are there a couple that stand out in performance? Thanks for any replies..!

I have a Drus so I bought the MI-6 which links to the detector or not because I also have a nox 800 so I use it with both its
A great pin pointer now they make the MI-4 it’s cheaper and does not link up but the reason I like them the most is they’re rechargeable
No darn bartteries! They can go up to 90 hours run time on a single charge and I’ve never had it die on me in field like a carrot!
Just my two cents. And it floats

My advice is be careful who you buy from, lots of knock offs from china. Many under brand names on public auction sights (dumbay).

I have both a Makro and a Nokta pin pointer. I'm impressed at how well they perform and at their durability in really tough conditions. The new Fisher/Tek pulse models intrigue me for their increased depth. It could come in handy when the targets are deep. Apart from that I feel no need to change.



Active detectors and accessories: Fisher F19 LTD on Mars universal shaft, F19 on original shaft, Nokta Fors CoRe, Whites MX7, Makro and Nokta pointers. Killer B's and Jolly Rogers headphones and assorted coils.
Previous detectors in order of acquisition: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Fisher F5, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705

The TekPoint and FPulse are both great pointers. Stay clear of the knock offs and most all of the major brand units work well.

Might just be me, but I sent the fpulse back, it kept falsing, I would have to keep restarting it while trying to find the target. My Garrett is also a problem, sent it in for repairs once, but it developed other issues, I now only have 1 sensitivity setting, and it will only beep (no vibrate). I would like to find one that actually works properly, and that pinpoints, not get you within 4 inches of the target, my metal detectors will do that.

The Garrett carrot, hands down

If you can get an F-Pulse which is solid(meaning the battery compartment and tension spring is well made and tight), you will be happy. I got mine back when they came out on the market and have done my own personal re-designing on my F-Pulse. I finally got mine working great.

The newest generation units could just be perfect. I also own the Carrot and has been a good pointer. Sensitivity won't match the F-Pulse though.

Good luck.

They all seem to be pretty decent now a days, unlike a decade or so ago when they were mostly toys except for a few.

The new Nokta Makro Pulse Dive pinpointer is built like a tank, has a built in rechargeable battery, easily adjustable depth and sound or vibration. Definitely a high quality pinpointer built to last.

I'll add my 2 cents. I've had a few pin pointers and some were good and some not so good. A buddy of mine bought a Whites TRX? I think that's right. He showed me how only the point of the pointer detects so where you point it the target lies. My Garrett is 360* so stick it in the hole and if it goes off you don't know if the target is at the bottom or the sides just that it is still there. As soon as I can I'm gettin a Whites.



Lookin for a hunting buddy in the Deltona Fl. area: Minelab E-trac and Garrett AT - Pro. And a customized 2008 Harley Deluxe.

I have had 4 other pin pointers, and now have the Whites TRX, that is what I use all the time now. If you haver put a bad cut on a good silver coin, you need a pin pointer. once you use one for a week, you will not want to detect with out one. you can get $16.00 one at Harbor F. just to give them a try, it won't work as well as MI6 or whites or garrets. Good luck flintstone
