Lost My Pin Pointer.... Damn It..! Need Advice

I lost my Garrett AT-Pro on the last hunt. I retraced my steps for about 20 minutes and then said... Screw it. It had a hole in the tip from me digging with it over the last 3 years. So I just chalked it up to Life's experiences. So now going to replace it, but I'm looking at the Minelab Pro 35 pinpointer. It kind of looks a little bit superior to the Garrett at Pro. A little bit of input would be helpful. And boy the price of pin pointers have certainly increased one heck of a lot in the last 3 to 4 years.

Get a lanyard. I left mine where I had dug a target, but was able to find it. I purchased one a few years ago and haven't lost it since 😆

I like the Whites TRX, which of course they don't make anymore. By the cost online, I must not be the only person who likes them!!

I won a ML one but found it didn’t detect gold pieces I had and the carrot would. But the carrot is annoying sometimes in that it doesn’t always come on and Work. I’ve been through 3 and they all did this occasionally.

This has become my solution for not leaving a pinpointer behind.
I simply clip and tighten the safety nut (not me :) )to either my detecting harness, or to my pouch, etc.
It is neon green and easy to spot from distance, should you unclip and then drop while detecting.
I was so cheesed off when I did this a few weeks back, but gathered my senses and backtracked there was the neon glow of my safety lanyard.

Ref tethers…..
I bought a coil cord type with a metal clasp. Learning that metal clasp can start making the PP go off if you let the PP double back over the coil. Looking for a hard plastic version…….
