Default Is the Garrett Carrott an upgrade from the Nokta?

I started out with a Nokta Simplex so got the Nokta pinpointer to go with it. I’ve since upgraded to a Nox 800 and wondering if the Carrott would be a better pinpointer than the Nokta or are they more or less equal? I ask because in metal detecting videos the Carrott looks like it finds stuff under the surface (ie before you dig) a bit better/deeper than the Nokta, but that could just be a factor of what kinds of things make it into the videos.

Anyone use both and can compare?

I saw the video but was looking for a “used in the real world” opinion as well.

In my limited experience the Garrett carrot does go deeper than my Nokta pulsedive configured as a pinpointer. I leave the Nokta in my accessories backpack for a spare.
Normally I use the black garrett but when it's range is not enough I pull out the carrot.

Based on my research, the Carrot and N/M Pinpointer (the one that normally retails for about $85) are about the same in terms of performance. The only real differences from what I discovered are the placement of the buttons, probe cover and more sensitivity adjustments with the N/M Pinpointer.

If you want more depth with your pinpointer so you can find targets before you dig, consider the Fisher F-Pulse. That definitely has more range than the Garrett Carrot.
