|This design for the hand-held pinpoint coil has been extremely effective for quick retrieval of your targets. It is super light and is designed as a locating tool, not a detecting tool due to its small coverage area. Once the hole is dug, switching to this probe will give you an accurate location for your target. It produces a magnetic field from the end and to the sides so it is quite simple to accurately pinpoint. It can be used in conjunction with our 'Switching Block', which allows you to switch between your detecting coil, to the probe with a flick of a switch without unplugging any coils.
(Note: you must turn off your detector before switching coils using the switching block.)
Available in two sizes:
1. 1” x 8” long
2. 1” x 20”
Operation hints & tips:
As the Probe is a mono coil it is extremely sensitive to targets and can sometimes be ‘Hyper-sensitive’ to knocks and soil conditions. To maximize its stability we suggest you use the Probe at least 1 inch (25mm) off the ground, working very slowly and avoid pushing it through the soil. It will also ‘sound off’ or produce a loud signal if closely surrounded by ground on all sides so avoid pushing this probe into drill holes or similar. It is best used on soil dug from your targets hole when spread out or searching the edges of a pre dug hole to see if any other small targets are left which the larger coil could have missed. See our coil chart for depth abilities.
With the 20” (500mm) long probe, it makes detecting high river banks easy as you can use it like a wand searching the bedrock crevices and similar areas.
