Hi all, my trusty Garrett Pro Pointer (four years young) is about to die. It’s been acting pretty oddly for a while, and played up big time on tonight’s hunt.
Lots of erratic falsing, not turning on at times, constantly beeping when no target (or metal) nearby etc. New batteries and it has been sleeping in the hwc for a week.
I have got a Deteknix Diver model. Good for water hunts but it’s a little lacking in sensitivity, for my liking and it has an annoying habit of taking forever to auto tune -turn on, but only sometimes, I have tried your trick MW of holding it to the ground as you turn it on but it didn’t seem to help it.
I know the non waterproof Deteknix models are supposed to be pretty good. Just watched a review on a Nokta with seems good also.
Any thoughts on what would be a good replacement?(for land based hunts) maybe another Garrett but change can be as good as a holiday too.
