Electronic Probes are designed to reduce recovery time of detected targets and, therefore, minimize unnecessary digging. Electronic probes/pinpointers/mini metal detectors come in two types: Hand-Held and Detector-Mounted (inline probes).

Hand-Held Electronic probes are very helpful in finding coins during recovery in sandy or extremely dry soil since it is impossible to keep the dirt plug intact and use the Plug-Splitting Technique if the ground is not moist.
