Minelab Pro-Find 35 vs XP MI-6. Depth comparison

On the one hand, it’s a usual comparative test of the Minelab Pro-Find 35, XP MI-6 and Garrett Pro-Pointer AT probes. All three of these units can be submerged in water, are relatively new (fresh models) and have won definite recognition from treasure hunters. Deservedly or not, this is of no interest to us at the moment. It’s the other side of the coin that is of interest. The XP MI-6 is very often called the extra deep device. But it doesn’t fully reflect the actual situation. Yes, the probe is deep enough, but not so deep that you overpay for it. Moreover, you should be aware that even the most expensive (feature packed, recognized, widely promoted etc.) pinpointers can miss targets. Are you surprised? Take a look at this short test – very informative, +25 to any detectorist’s karma guaranteed. Continue reading

Comments on Minelab PRO-Find 35. The comparison, tests, drawbacks

The first Minelab PRO-Find 35 owners gave their feedback on this device: how it works, what the advantages and disadvantages are. Here’s a Minelab PRO-Find 35 test and a vast comparison with other probes. Plus, testing the pinpointer on gold. Continue reading

Depth test: Minelab Pro-Find 35 vs Pro-Find 15. Which is deeper?

What’s better for a pinpointer: max depth or super sensitivity to tiny targets? Minelab revealed the two new probes: an expensive and a cheap one. And what’s the difference between them in terms of depth? It’s an interesting question. Here’s a comparison: testing the depth on the Minelab Pro-Find 35 vs Minelab Pro-Find 15. Continue reading

Practical test for Minelab PRO-Find 35 (compared to the old one). Pinpointer battle

Do you have a pinpointer? How will this one react if there is a coin and a nail in the same hole? Will you cope with or give up on such a difficult test? You surely have an old probe, but today we are going to talk about a new Minelab PRO-Find 35. I wonder whether it can be really helpful to a treasure hunter: without producing false signals, truly time saving, without hidden monetary losses, and above all, better than the old one. Here’s, to all true detectorists, a comparative test of the Minelab PRO-Find 35 in practice. Does Minelab’s new probe provide good performance or is it the useless beeping thing? Continue reading

Minelab Pro-Find 35 Salt Water Beach Test

While working with the Minelab Pro-Find 35 in saltwater it’s necessary to reduce sensitivity by using the +/- buttons. The junior Pro-Find 15 doesn’t have these ones, however. So, isn’t it possible to use the junior in saltwater? Certainly not. And this is primarily because of the fact that the probe should be able to withstand submersion. The Pro-Find 35 is submersible whereas the Pro-Find 15 isn’t. Here’s an interesting and useful test: how the Minelab Pro-Find 35 works in dry and wet sand, how it behaves when submerged in water, how buoyant it is. Continue reading
