On to the PP...short and sweet... it did what the pro pointer did just way way weaker. Not much range or depth and yes... you pretty much had to be 1/2 inch away but it beeped faster and faster as you came near the target and it detected 360 degrees along the shaft.

Picked this up out of curiosity and need... i plan to try a trx soon but i really wanted to get out this past weekend. Under 25 bucks spent and i was able to do a bit of hunting before i spring (very soon) for the trx.

In all if for whatever reason you use this pp i say don't expect much more than just a bit of help once you pull out your plug. You will have to really trust your MD...and yes dig down 2 inches when it says so... no just pressing the tip to the grass! Ha ha!

It's an ok back up or an extra to loan to a buddy in a pinch.


I have a Kuman pp it does ok, but you do have to dig a plug out for it to locate a find. But thatís ok too.
