Does anyone use an F-Pulse pin pointer?

I would like to hear basics on how to get used to one?
Won one at a club hunt and just trying to get use to it?
Any tips would be terrific.
Thanks, Tony

I won one a couple of years ago at a club meeting as well. The Hunter GT has a good video showing the operation and setup of the unit. I watched it a couple of times to get a good understanding of the pointer.

You were right “The Hunter GT” video was helpful.
Thanks MidTN

I use a Fisher. Like the sensor at the end of the pointer, the light and it reaches deeper than my old Garrett. It tends to chatter a bit...but can be eliminated by touching the ground and pushing the on/off button once or twice.

Monkeys Uncle, thanks I needed that tip because I haven't been able to get it right. I'll try that tip

The F-Pulse/Tek-Point is my favorite pinpointer. Set on full sensitivity it will hit 4" deep coin sized targets easily. Set on full sensitivity it will also interfere with detectors so I have learned to not lay may detector down with the coil next to the target I'm recovering. Wet ground and highly mineralized ground will also make it chatter a bit. So will a coin's leftover "halo" occasionally in some plugs and holes. It takes a bit to get used to but I liked it so much I bought another one. I did send my first one in for warranty repair and First Texas fixed it with no questions asked so make sure you register it with FTP. Pinpointers take a beating.

One of my hunting buddies just gave me a new F-Pulse that he got with a detector purchase and already has a Tek-Point, which he uses. I haven't used it yet, glancing over the instructions it appears to have a slight learning curve? :shrug: I think my hard used carrot it about to go dark, so will then see what the F-Pulse is all about.

BT - Be sure the pointer is "ON" and stick the nose on or in the dirt and push the on/off button once...sometimes twice and the chatter should go away. I usually have to do it 2 or 3 times during a hunt...but it will eliminate the chatter. HH!

Until you get the operation down pat, and you are out in the field and mess up the settings, you can unscrew the end and slide the batteries part way out and quickly back in. This will reset it to the default settings of LED at 70% brightness,Alarm at beep and vibrate, and the Sensitivity at medium. If you carry a Lesche digging tool,it makes a good temporary screwdriver to do this.
