The purpose of this product is to pinpoint it and it does exactly that. It actually helped me when I was digging after I used my metal detector. The only I don't like to much was the price, I personally think it should be lower. Without a metal detector in hand the pinpointer is useless.
For the Price, you can not beat it that I have found. I have 3 and my biggest complaints are lack of waterproofing and the battery cover, I am about to tape them closed. Other than that they have saved me tons of time sifting through sand and do EXACTLY what they have been designed to do at a LOW Cost. Price the Others and try one of these. I am not sorry I bought these to get started and thats why I gave them 5 stars.
Works well although you have to darn near be touching the item and the battery cover could be better. Also it needs constant adjustment but it has been very helpful when used in conjunction with my pistol probe which has a lot more range but more finicky for final pinpointing.
I took it out of the package and went straight out to do some detecting. I found a good target but cold not find the item! I used the pin pointer, and found a very thin, small medallion. I went on to make several other finds that afternoon with the help of the pinpointer.
I know I could have gotten one for a bit less money, but I purchased the extended warranty, so I feel like I really came out ahead. I will be using it alot, and it will be in different weather situations, dirt and in and out of its pouch. Anything plastic can fall victim to breakage but it is pretty well made. It is accurate and adjusts with ease. I like it and I am comforted knowing that should anything go wrong I have the protection of the warranty to back me up. I would buy it again. You dont need anything more expensive than this for what it does. Money well spent.
It arrived broken. Battery cap was broke. Wouldn't detect coins unless they were 1/4 inch or closer to the tip. Returned for refund.
I received my pin pointer two days before the expected day. I used it the same day with my daughter at our local park with good results. I Marked the place with my metal detector, dig and my little precious daughter (8 years old) found with the help of the pin pointer her "Treasures" (old bottle caps, springs and pennies). It was great for a father and daughter afternoon in the park.
No cons all positive.
I wish it would read 3in deep not 11/2 deep,all pinpointers read about11/2in,but it does its job after i find a coin it pin points it in the ground and saves on big hole cleanup!
I opened it and was SO disappointed! Its cheaply made and in no way us it worth the money! First you have to find where to adjust the sensitivity button which takes forever. Then when you finally do adjust it, when you go to use it if the button gets moved in the slightest you have to go adjust it all over again. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!
This past weekend, my son and I took to the fields and scouted around an old wagon trail. As we would find our relics with the metal detector, we used this pin pointer to help identify items in the hole. It works great and lets you know if you have uncovered your relic or not.
Where the knob is designed on the pin pointer you don't want to have your index or thumb resting at the knob this could cause misleading detecting and accidentally move the knob back to the beginning of turning on the knob. Other than that it was exactly what i needed with my M.D., all i need to do to help the pin pointer is move dirt and thin out thick patches of grass to find in my searches.
Very help device when using your metal detector. The item delivered sooner than expected. That was nice
This is a great value at Walmart! The Pinpointer works well and is a good buy for the price. This item costs almost twice as much on the products website. If you are into metal detecting as a hobby this is a must have to work with your detector!
This pinpointer works really. You do have to be within 2", but it does pick it up. The only complaint I have is it could be just a little louder, or vibrate a little harder. Well satisfied.
just started getting in to metal detecting and this little guy has made a big difference. finding small coins in the ground gets way easier with this pinpointer.
The pinpointer is much better than nothing but not as good as I wanted. It cannot pickup gold very good at all but does a nice job on most other metals. Still for the price I would recommend it to anyone that can't afford a better quality one.
As an entry level pin pointer you can't beat the price or functionality of this product. Granted it does not have some of the feature or sensitivity of units that cost three to four times what it costs, but it will most definitely cut down on the amount of digging you have to do. It is most assuradly worth the price.
If you metal detect on a regular basis I would recommend getting a higher grade pinpointer however for the average hobbiest this is gonna be your best buy and cheapest
you get what you pay for,it does it's job
This is a very weak pinpointer
I was hoping the range would have been a little farther,one inch is about as good as it's going to be I reckon.Almost wish I had just went ahead and bought another Cen-Tech for $15 out the door.It has a lot better range than this one.It will have to do for now as my cheap one got broke and I thought maybe Bounty Hunter had read all the negative reviews and had maybe increased the performance on this one a little but apparently not.
