Teknetics have revealed a new product 2017 – the Teknetics Tek-Point probe… There exist some trends in the metal detecting world: a modern pinpointer must be bright, as easy to use as possible and submersible. Teknetics don’t know anything about these trends, they want their pinpointer to be dark-colored and with a bolt. So here comes the Teknetics Tek-Point, a new product 2017!

- Lost mode alarm
- Single button operation
- 3 sensitivity levels
- Proportional response
- Adjustable LED light
- Auto shutdown
- 2-AA batteries (not included)
- Belt holster included
- 2-year warranty
- Constructed from special abrasion-resistant materials

Power supply: 2 AA usual batteries. Technology: Pulse Induction metal detector (PI). Dynamic response (proportional audio), becomes more intense as the pinpointer is moved closer to a target. Audio and/or vibration response. Lost pinpointer alarm. Has a ruler molded into its exterior to measure a target’s depth in either centimeters (on one side of the housing) or inches (on the other side). LED backlight.

this will be the best probe out there!
Why is it a problem being dark? keep hold of your probe!
Good night and god bless Garrett!
If you hunt hay fields it is important to have a probe that is visible. I asked many years ago to have an orange probe and was faced with ridicule from forum goers. I lost two black probes and was called senile and careless. I have never lost an orange one! Go figure!
get a lanyard George..:-)
hi,looks great,as for losing your pointer,if you hate lanyards,the next trashed washing up gloves,if you cut the fingers into strips,forming bright coloured rubber bands to place on pointer,job done! if you cant hear your pointer alarm. atb hh gl

Teknetics Tek-Point depth test:
Visibility is an issue with this one for sure, and if you plan to use it for underwater hunting be aware that the rating was scaled back from 10ft to 6ft. When it comes to detection range or depth it has no equal aside from the Whites Bullseye TRX. The major difference between the two being the TRX is VLF and tip detection and the Tek is Pulse induction with 360 detection. The TRX should cause less interference with most machines whereas the Tek may take some adjusting to play nicely. The Tek should be more consistent across harsh soils where the TRX may false. It’s a probe that easily slid into the top 3-5 upon its release, pushing the carrot further down the pecking order. A worthy pulse alternative is the Gold Digger Land or Sea. A tad less detection depth, but waterproof to 20 feet, bright neon yellow, two button operation with sound, vibrate and light indicators. Very solid piece of kit as well. To me, the aforementioned and the new ML PF35 with iron tone are the only worth considering as top of the line right now. Anything less for the same amount of money is cheating yourself. You may not think you need the extra range these provide over pro pointers but it’s there if you do.
So I bought the teknetics tek-point last week from kellycodetectors and I ran into an interesting issue I have a whites electronics TreasurePro which operates on the 8.5khz frequency when I set my detector down to dig my target I turn on the tek-point and get some erratic emi interference every time, what bothers me is the the pp isnoulse induction which wouldn’t interfere with vlfs??? What do you think? Now I havent tried to lower the sensitivity on the pp but really I shouldn’t have to.
You can buy some white reflective tape to add to the pp in case you misplace on a hunt Of course you’ll have to look around with a bright flashlight but it’s just another added precaution
