Great Metal Detector
Review by Ricky E. on February 25, 2016
The objects that I have found with my Bounty Hunter Pinpointer were coins, silverware and belt buckle. None were too old, and none were relics per say. I don't get out much as I would like. I go around lakes and beaches. My detector tells you if it's a quarter, or a time, or nickels, rings and even if its gold or silver. It also gives you the depth from 0 to 10 inches. But I like it. That's what counts, that you're having fun doing it. Yes, I would recommend this detector. I had one time me and my wife was along Lake Erie. I put my detector on all metals. I got real strong signal. So we started digging and we dug and dug. Went further then my detector said the depth was and we couldn’t find what it was detecting. I kept detecting now and then and was still getting a strong signal. It went about 6 ft deep. And we gave up, because sand kept falling in the hole. Then I was telling my cousin about it. And where we were digging there was a flood quit a few years ago. There was a house on top of the cliff. Their safe was pushed out through the walls when it flooded on to the beach but it was never found. My cousin Eddy thinks that what we detected. But we well never know for sure. The excitement of getting a strong signal on your detector is strong. Your hearts starts racing and your adrenaline starts pumping until you uncover what you found. But this time we didn’t find any thing but that’s OK we got our exercise. I suggest, you get out in those great outdoors and get some fresh air. We enjoyed ourselves, thank you.
Better than Nothing
Review by RiK on October 31, 2015
This is why I hate it. Poor sensitivity of course but my real issue was the adjustment knob being right there in the way. It constantly brushes up against stuff and sends it either screaming constantly or the other way decreasing the already poor sensitivity and I am just waving it like I am Harry Potter without knowing it is out of adjustment. The knob fell off not that long ago and it improved somewhat. It also seems to fluctuate and re-adjusts even when it hasn't been bumped. Straight out of the tip is not very sensitive, it has one side that seems to work a lot better and I have to rotate it around the hole pointing the "good" side out. The reason I don't bounce it off a rock, it works a little. It is better than nothing and I have already spent my money on it. This one was not my first pinpointer, my first was cheaper and didn't last as long as this one. I just ordered a Garrett AT Pro-Pointer. I have seen one in the field and I should have saved my money and bought it first.
Knowledge is Power...

I saw this pinpointer as a BOGO item and thought I would check out the reviews. I was surprised at the low ratings but then I read the reviews. I think for anyone taking these ratings at face value is making a serious mistake, as they are quite unfair. The ratings were admittedly given by mostly beginners who I suspect think a pinpointer is a stand alone metal detector. The idea of a pinpointer, as far as I have ever known, is to do what the name suggests. Pinpoint the exact location of your find. The fact that it doesn't detect at 2 inches or more is because that is what your metal detector is for.
The pinpointer acts as a precision tool to locate an exact location of your find so you don't damage it, etc. by digging unnecessarily. So yes, it detects at about ½ inch for a reason and not at 6 inches, and yes many only on the tip for a precise location of the find. Yes, some have different sensitivities for better performance but the bottom line is a pinpointer shouldn't be expected to perform as a metal detector.
So, I think if choosing a pinpointer, as with anything, you should do your research to find the one that suits your needs as a precision tool to supplement your metal detectors pinpoint feature. If it has one. I think the price on this one is what makes it attractive to the beginner but as with anything too, you get what you pay for. Hope this helps some people.

Didn't expect much for 16 bucks or whatever it was on the bogo thing. Can sniff out a 1000 pound anvil from almost an inch away and if that impresses you I'll trade you mine for a rack of cheap beer. Guess I should have done my pinpointer homework. Kellyco should NOT sell this product.
Waste of Money Even at a Discount
Review by Wayne C on April 22, 2015
Well this is about as lame a device as has ever been built since Ford built the Edsall. I understand that it is a short-range detector, but "contact" is just a tad short even for the price. Guess I need to spend another $100.00 or so to get one worth the price of the battery.
