Nokta or Makro Pointer ?

Post by tcawood » Sun Jun 10, 2018 10:08 pm

Is there any difference between these two pointers, anything at all beyond the branding?

I'm sure I saw somewhere that makro took over nokta. Might be wrong though.

The Nokta has more sensitivity settings if that is to your preference, it also has a lost alarm warning and has that nice visibility orange colour, for me personally less settings for a pointer makes it far easier to use ::g

I've got the Makro, it's a really useful piece of kit, not sure how I managed without one, people complain about the six beeps when you turn it off, you soon learn to muffle the speaker with your hand if it bothers you at all.

Hi all.
Apologies if I’m a bit late to the party, I see you’ve already ordered your Makro pinpointer & hope it serves you well ::g
As a little endorsement on Mrix’ comment regarding the necessity for additional sensitivity settings, I’ve had a Nokta pinpointer for a few weeks now & always have it on full sensitivity. I’m sure I will find a use for the lower settings one day.....gawd knows when though x;
One last thing, I also had a few doubts after reading contributors thoughts on the 6 beeps. As most people have done, I just keep a finger over the speaker hole when turning off....sorted.
In conclusion, excellent quality product that does what it says on the tin.
Happy Hunting
