Fisher and Teknetics have finally managed to produce a good, operational pinpointer. And their competitors should feel nervous really. Here’s a comparison: the Teknetics Tek-Point, Garrett Pro-Pointer AT, and Makro Pointer. Depth testing the coins and gold. Can you guess which probe sees the deepest?
All about the Teknetics Tek-Point is collected here (news, tests, comparisons with other devices, different reviews and opinions). Plus, on Knowledgebase pages there is additional information you should know before buying the Teknetics Tek-Point. The experience of others will help you save your time and money. Happy hunting to everyone!
I had to return 2 tekpointers within 1st month because they leak if submerged. I love the Pulse Induction, but they advertise waterproof to 6m. Both of mine failed just doing holes at the tideline.
Tek told me it has never happened before, but if 2 of mine leaked, I do not believe them.
I have a 3rd replacement, but I use my Garrett. I am on my 3rd Garrett AT Pro-pointer and never had a leak.
I forgot to mention, if you are near surf or windy, the Tek is very hard to hear. Also, if the speaker area gets wet, can not hear it; must wait about 30 minutes for it to dry. Does not fix it by blowing through it. Garrett no problem.
I had or have the Fisher version. If it was a car it would be a lemon in need of recall. I use my garrett since the F- pulse died after playing with it several times. Throwing it aside since it was so chattery or foulsing while actually thinking it possibly operator error and I needed to learn it. To pick it back up after being cast aside without the battery in it for it to never detect a piece of metal again. We were all ripped off on that not ready for primetime pinpointer. They new it and sort of acknowledged it without making it right. We learned First Texas does not stand behind their products.
I am not a fan of garrett metal detectors due to the tones and having 2 working ears, they do work and true that all they have to do is make noise but…, but anyway they did nail the pinpointer. For that they will always be, ok.
