I use the Nokta Makro pinpointer and would happily recommend it and used the Racer 2 so I have experience of the brand and can vouch for the reliabilty and quality of the make (any thing I use has to be sturdy!).
I like the idea of this item, use it inland with the standard pinpointing tip and then on the beach it can be used as a scuba detector by simply replacing the tip with the coil.
I have no intention of going scuba diving but have certainly been on beaches where this would have been very useful in the rockpools where using a standard detector was not possible or you might not want to for some reason.
The price I saw was £179, which considering many pinpointers are around the £100 or more mark seems very reasonable (and is only £10 more than the xp MI-6 pinpointer).
Blimey Junior that must be an old detector you are using if it is steam driven
I can certainly image situations where you could use this where the size of a standard detector would make it unusable. One video I saw even said it could be used in small spaces like the attic, not that I have ever tried detecting in the attic - but would be useful if were trying to find pipes or wires before doing DIY.
Another video showed air tests on various coins and the coil search head did get more "depth" than the pinpointer (but only a max of about an inch with £2, £1, 50p and 2p coins).
Spanish digger, it sounds as if you could be getting one, if you do once you have used it a bit could you please do a review.Spanish digger wrote: ↑Thu Apr 25, 2019 7:30 pmWill be released next week.just had message from manufacturers. Great tool for us beach hunters especially gravel an rock beaches where you can't get a scoop.I use a very strong plastic rake the size of your hand and drag the target out.,,with this will be a lot quicker
