XP MI-6 Pinpointer (Our Review!)
For what you need a pinpointer and what it is useful for, during detecting, we have already written and told about a million times. I even wrote a post on this topic, but now, it seems to me, everyone knows that digging without a pinpointer means spending a lot of time digging out the find. And what if you dig tiny hammered coins? These finds are difficult to find without a pinpointer. Buttons, pennies, half-pennies and other small targets require pinpointing, and this has long been popular with most diggers who do not want to sit for a long time over a freshly dug hole.
But some manufacturers went far ahead, releasing a pinpointer that only works with one model of a metal detector. And in this case, the story will be about XP Detectors and their pinpointer MI6, which was not created as a simple and universal pin-pinter, but namely for working with the metal detector XP Deus.
The kit is pretty simple. This is a familiar box from XP Detectors – a big red logo and a black background color with white or red text.
We open it and see the complete set!
The things you need most – the pinpointer itself, a lanyard, holster, charging cable and manual.
The pinpointer itself is quite interesting. It is red, so it will be easier to find it in the field if you leave it. The design is nice and has good quality, there is one button, which is quite conveniently and easily. The lid can be closed securely and, thanks to the rubber band, the inner compartment for charging is protected from water and dirt.
The pinpointer is waterproof up to 6 meters! Do not forget that you can easily and freely detect with it the water. A good bonus.
The battery is hidden inside, and based on experience it can last enough for three days of intensive detecting. Not bad, given the size of the pinpointer (slightly smaller than the “carrot” from the Garrett) and the fact that the battery is quite small.
But the main bonus is the connection to the metal detector XP Deus! Yes, they really connect with each other and thanks to this, you can install advanced settings on the pinpointer. It is connected through the 7th program, the six previous programs are created exclusively for work without a connection to the Deus!
