hi

i have had one for a few weeks now and i dont rate it personally im not sure if my unit is faulty

but i get falsing all the time, even in the air let alone near soil, i can hold the tip with my hand which sets it off.
sensitivity is worthless its up on max all the time
the only postive i can see over the garrett is you can mute the sounds so it just vibrates
also it beeps loudly if you leave it on or lose it.

mine is going back to joan allen to see what they say tomorrow :-(

Sounds faulty to me jemby. Mine works great, not a single beep out of place.
Sure you not wearing any rings in that hand of yours :D
Seriously though its a good piece of kit. Why not try a replacement before writing it off ?

Only problem I have found so far is it turns my garrett detector into an arcade machine, if its too close, which is odd as its supposed to be ULF to stop that :(

Flossy
I did have sensitivty cranked up to the max on my scope, wonder if that was the cause? It was bleeping away if it came within about 4 ft of the profind :(
I now run my scope over the find area until i'm happy i'm somewhere near, then turn the scope off before turning on the profind. Not too much of a problem, unless I forget h;@ h;@

I am a great fan of minelab but I would need lots of convincing to change from my Garret ::g

ML make great machines (i love my etrac) but we are talking about a pin pointer and why anyone would want to lower the sensitivity on a pin pointer is beyond me and as for the £125+ price tag, that has just priced its self out of the market (for me) imo
i shall be sticking with my pro pointer, well proven and battle hardened and £35+ cheaper ::g
Just dig it and put your mind at rest

well the replacement pin pointer has gone wrong again :-(

also purchased another one for a friend and this one doesn't work right from straight out the box!!!

there's a drastic manufacturing problem which needs to be fixed!!!! I take it back to joan allen for repair have to go a few days without it to find out that there going to send another one. great service from joan allen but please minelab pull your finger out or im buying a garrett!!! ;;z
