Default The new pinpointer is in!

Automax just arrived and I am so happy to finally get it! Being new to the hobby, I hunted without one for a while and with a buddy who has one and it makes a world of difference.

Also, THANK YOU MS. BLAZE from Kellyco! Couldn't have been more helpful or nicer. Can't wait to get back out there now with the pinpointer!

A pinpointer makes a world of difference. I'd be interested in how the Automax works out for you. I like my Bullseye II but I always want to keep my options open. Congrads!

I started out without a pinpointer and could not understand why people needed one. Now I don't understand how I hunted without one.

Pinpointers are a great accessory. I prefer to use one ... some do not. To me, it speeds up recovery time and assures you find the object giving a signal. RickO

Well, ya know, nothing ticks ya off more than digging and digging and finding nothing.

I really don't mind finding a pulltab, but at least I found my target and didn't refill the hole empty handed. LOL!

Now you won't be able to hunt without one. They are great.

Sounds good to me .I was told to get a Garrett Pro Pinpointer. Being new to all this it's very confusing. I am not sure which one to get.

Try the TinyTech pinpointer or a more expensive, but sensitive DetectorPro PistolGrip
