New to the Community/Hobby

Hi Guys and Girls

Very new to the community and the hobby. Ive actually had a very keen interest in detecting for years and finally took the plunge and picked up a new Vanquish 440. I have a question on what pin-pointer people would recommend for someone starting out? I’m interested in coins/relics at this stage of the game. Parks and beaches being areas of interest for me initially.

I also saw an older post regarding a digging tool. My eyebrows definitely rose at the prices of some on the market, the person posting was in a similar frame of mind.

After some scanning around I managed to spot and purchase the following.

Definitely does the job nice and tidy and at a fraction of the price.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions regarding a Pin-Pointer.
