Fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT. Careful, it doesn’t work!

The owners of fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT complained that… they hadn’t been about to buy a counterfeit Garrett product – it was sold as authentic, maybe a little bit cheaper. So be careful – fake Garrett devices are mainly not personally handed from a seller to a customer but are pushed when it’s a purchase with a delivery option. And it’s impossible, much less just by looking at a picture, to distinguish at once between the fake and original unit. Everything looks similar, the counterfeit probe has even better package appearance. Well, you should know this Chinese approach… And it’s just the minute details because of which you can discern the difference. Half of all fake pinpointers don’t work at all, and even those that are operational fall far short of the authentic product. Moreover, all of them can’t be submerged in water as they leak right on the first submersion (the original is waterproof). Here are the pics (+ what’s inside the fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT): Continue reading

GTX3030: Chinese-made fake Minelab CTX 3030. Did it really happen?

A GTX3030 metal detector appeared on Chinese websites. It’s strange but this one looks a bit similar to the already existing Minelab CTX 3030. Don’t pay attention, it’s just a coincidence. There is another name and no Minelab logo. So what claims can be made against the Chinese manufacturer? Minelab’s machine was released in 2012 whereas the release date of the Chinese-made unit is 2018. In addition, Minelab’s device costs $2,400 whereas the new Chinese product is priced at $198. I wonder whether Chinese could really fake the Minelab CTX 3030? Or they are selling e-waste in the likeness of a detector? Continue reading

MD 6300. Chinese remake of Garrett ACE 250 (look at it!)

Chinese are selling a MD 6300 metal detector. Even a blind man can see that it’s a China-made Garrett ACE 250. BUT! It has unexpectedly turned out that the counterfeit machine has a feature which is 100% demanded by customers but is stubbornly ignored by the original manufacturer. It’s the control box that can be quickly removed from the shaft. Take a look at it! Continue reading

Chinese-made fake Teknetics G2 with a fake Garrett coil

It doesn’t matter to Chinese what they produce, especially if you are ready to buy it. Here is, for instance, a new product 2018 – Chinese-made fake Teknetics G2 with a… Garrett 8.5×11 DD coil. Isn’t it cute? The package also includes the Garrett locking collars and a strengthened armrest (counterfeit parts). Some hybrid fake, eh? Continue reading

GP Pointer 2 TRX SHRXY (fake White’s TRX). NEW 2018

Here’s a new product 2018 – GP Pointer 2 TRX SHRXY. Can you give us your expert opinion on whether this probe is a fake copied-in-China White’s TRX? Or does it simply look like the pinpointer from the American manufacturer and it’s a random coincidence? And another thing I have wondered about: the novelty looks better that the original! Let’s see how it works… Continue reading
