Recently acquired the pointer and have settled in to a method of use which seems to be the best for me. First off I have a Garrett black pointer and it clearly does not have the depth of the Tek pointer. Since my pinpointing with the T2 usually leaves something to be desired, if the target is beyond the range of the Garrett and I want to dig it, I use the Tek point to I D location and then dig out a couple inches of dirt and then use the Garrett for final location. I am not a fan of the 360 sensitivity of the TekPoint. Maybe I'll change my mind after more use. Redundant pinpointing at its best!
