Why I don’t like Whites TRX pinpointer. Video

A good pinpointer has an ability of searching both in the hole and on flat ground. Watch the video: why the Whites TRX isn’t capable of searching on flat ground.

If you’ve dug out the hole and a coin is lying nearby in the excavated dirt… You take the pinpointer, check the hole first and then start checking the dirt. How is it better, however, to wave the pinpointer? Vertically, scanning over the ground pencil-wise? Or horizontally, covering the maximum area in a sweeping motion? Of course, horizontally! The coin will be found more quickly in such a way.

But if the middle part of your pinpointer antenna (detection portion) is blind and skipping, searching on the horizontal plane loses its effectiveness. This is what happens to the Whites TRX.

It should also be added that the Whites TRX pinpointer very often gives false responses… Turn the device on, raise and lower the tip several times – at maximum sensitivity you will immediately receive false responses. And since recently the Whites TRX can be used underwater.

  • The Whites TRX is one of the deepest… But I don’t need maximum depth; with it the main purpose of the pinpointer – to save time – is lost. In practice, optimum depth needed for the pinpointer to pick up a coin is 5-7cm.

    • So lower the sensitivity!

      • I don’t want to sit over the hole trying to understand… are these false responses? Will I need to press this button once more? Can I have missed a find and do need to check once more?

        I want to take the pinpointer, simply switch it on, stick into the hole, pick up a coin and simply switch the device off. That’s how the pinpointer should work. And I don’t need anything more from it!

  • if u have lots of false signals, put sens down and don’t bother writing that smth is “bad”…

  • Best pinpointer on the market. The problem is you are trying to use it like a Garrett propointer. It is a tip down designed pinpointer. If your item is in the side of the hole you won’t keep digging deeper.

  • The beauty of the trx is you know EXACTLY where the target is in the hole, especially if you use the ratchet feature. Dig enough targets and it will save you from boogering up a nice coin or button. It doesnt false anymore than other pointers. Most dont ground balance and wonder why they false.

  • i sold the replacement trx white’s sent me after the original foundered…twice, it still didn’t work right after the repair. I found out that i don’t need or want a mini detector, i just need a pinpointer, quick and easy, and for $50 on ebay i got one with the old bullseye ii.

  • I tried this same test with mine and it doesn’t have the no read areas that yours is having in this video? I can run a coin, key what ever and it doesn’t shut up all the way across the thing……Like mine better than my Vulcan 360 or Garrett Pro…….
