Serious treasure hunters know that for exact finding of small targets, a metal detector pinpointer is essential. So which of them are any good? These 5 pinpointers are used by hobbyists and professionals, and are among the hottest choices for precision hunting.

Garrett Pro Pointer
The ProPointer makes use of static detection for quick, simple target retrieval. It's water-proof and can be washed after use. It featured 360 degree side scanning, an LED light and a scraping blade. It normally goes for round $150.

Sun Ray X-1 In-Line Target Probe
That is considered by many to be the best metal detector pinpointer, and as such it is the priciest at a hundred and seventy dollars or so. It works as a secondary coil, and prompts at the flick of a switch. It uses the identical energy supply as your detector and has all the similar features (alarms, visible ID). It may be submerged in water, as long as the switch field (which is water-resistant only) is not.

Detector Pro UniProbe
This is a probe, headphone and pulse inductance metal detector multi functional single unit. You need to use it alone, or together with your most important detector. If you add a search coil and rods, it becomes a complete metal detector all fasteners suppliers on its own.

The electronics are all built in to the headphones. Works with contemporary and salt water and with all varieties of ground minerals. After all, all of this implies a hefty price tag...about $350.

White's Bullseye II Pinpointer
This is a hand-held metal detector pinpointer that may run as much as 20 hours on one 9 volt battery. It does not require tuning. It has a helpful LED light, so you can see deep down into those darkish holes and crevices. White's is a popular and trusted name in metal detecting, but surprisingly this pinpointer is a really reasonable one hundred dollars or so on average.

Bounty Hunter Pinpointer
A low price ticket (around $50) doesn't mean low efficiency! This metal detector pinpointer is small, light and simple to make use of, and makes it perfect for beginners or casual hobbyists who don't need or need a ton of bells and whistles.

Sensitivity is controlled and adjusted by one knob. The value is right, and the performance is sound. All in all, a superb little metal detector pinpointer for basic, informal treasure hunting. When you have children, this is a nice choice for them as well, since it is simple to operate and to understand.
