The Best

Sheryl Tack in England UK - best

Nothing compares. All the rest are well in its shadow. Only negative for me is that I had to import it. Please make this excellent piece of kit more readily available in the UK

My first probe..

John A in California - best

When I decided to try a probe for faster recovery, I read everything I could find on the internet. I bought the Detector Pro because of the ability to adjust the threshold. Naturaly my discrimination setting was on high. This probe gets remarkable depth and I am extremely happy with its function. My only negative comments are that it is a little long, and that when it is in its holster some ignorant civilian or police officer might think it is a firearm. My solution to this was to urban camo the unit with yellow fingernail polish. It breaks up the outline and I have not been bothered. Thanks for letting me add my 2cents..

Pistol Probe Camo

John in California. - good

I bought the pistol probe 2 weeks ago. The first time out, it was very helpfull. My only con is that on my belt at a distance it could be confused with a firearm. I live in California, and the people here are hyper sensitve to such things. I make my living around firearms and know of such things. So, I used some of my daughters' yellow nail polish to break up the black outline. I dont care about what people think of the color, I just dont want to be interupted by an overzelous police officer or some passer by. Hope this helps.

Great unit...The best out there?

Jason Sevene in Swanzey,NH - best

I made the mistake of purchasing the Automax v4 pinpointer with a Garrett Ace 250 a couple of months back and boy was I dying for a better pinpointer! I saw a couple of Youtube videos on this unit and was immediately hooked. I went to Streeter's Electronics in Marlboro NH and picked one up and am very impressed! This thing rocks and you can easily pick out your target from any hole and from distances of up to 6" at least. It fits perfect on my USGI M16 mag pouch grenade holder and is easy to carry around all day. Because it is a pulse unit, I find that I have to adjust the threshold setting somewhat frequently as it interferes with my Minelab Safari FBS, but that is really not a problem for me. The best I've used and would highly recommend! Thanks for reading!

New DetectorPro Pistol Probe

Tom Kenny in Barre, MA - best

You have to see it for yourself. I have used them all, Garret, Whites, Tesoro, Treasure products etc. And none compare as far as depth. I am getting a solid 4" in an air test using a dime. The others don't even come close.
