Some time ago, I would have said the pinpointer, but recently one digger shared a photo – he went digging with his Makro Racer and lost a coil in the literal sense of the word. He said that he used the coil as usual, without hitting anything, it just fell off. But you still want to continue detecting, right? Nothing else remains but to search the pockets...
