Review by Joe Y on April 15, 2015
This would be a tough one to compare this pointer to others as it is primarily designed as an underwater tool. A job at which it is outstanding. I recently purchased 2, Vulcan 360 pointers and 2, Vibra-Probe 580. I did a side by side comparison. On the minus side I found the Vibra-Probe to be somewhat less sensitive than the Vulcan 360 along with the fact that it is a bit bulky. On the plus side, it has a very well designed and secure battery compartment making changing the battery easy while ensuring a water tight seal. It is built like a tank and can take quite a bit of abuse.
For daily use on a sunny day I would recommend using a different pointer such as a Vulcan 360 or a Garrett pro pointer. In bad weather, extended field / camping trips with unknown weather or conditions that require true rugged design this would be a good choice. For under water use it would be my first choice. When I purchased my last 4 pointers the Garrett Pro Pointer AT "Garrett Carrot" had not been released. I am very anxious to try one.

Take My Vibra Probe 580 only out of my Cold D
Review by Larry T on February 09, 2015
Owned the Vibra Probe 580 for 3 yrs and can't do without it. I spend up to 10 hrs/day beach hunting during the winter months in Florida with a Minelab Excalibur II and often find targets that are too small and fall through my scoop. I first tried to move and sift sand with my fingers but it is almost impossible to find small targets in the sand. My Vibra Probe 580 works great at finding the small targets (gold cross, gold ends of ear rings) in the sand or in the hole's sides or bottom. A number of times I was about to give up on a target because I simply could not locate it in the hole - the Vibra probe would detect it at the bottom, often a sinker, or on the sides (coins) of the hole. I'm rough on everything and use the Vibra Probe to dig in sand and jab it in the bottom trying to find the target. So far it has survived me and when it dies I'll buy another one without hesitation. I love the fact that it is easy to turn-on by pointing it up, and after I use it I just put it back in the holster and it turns off. This is an accessory, like my sand scoop, I can't do without.

The only one to use in the water. Great quality and simple design make this one a winner. I would actually give it 4 1/2 stars as I would like to see a change in the on-off system. As it works now, you have to tilt the tip up to turn it on or off and it has a 1 minute non-use automatic shut-off supposedly to save on battery life. It's just a bit annoying having to turn it on all the time. I would like to see an automatic "sleep" mode to save the battery and once it gets next to metal, it awakens automatically. Sometimes it will cross-talk with your main detector, so you need to keep your coil off to the side while using the Vibraprobe. Minor, I know, but that's why it doesn't get a full 5 stars from me. Otherwise it's an excellent piece of gear.

I bought a cheaper probe first which had audio only. This is the second probe I bought and will likely be the last I will need. It is just what you need when you have back ground noise, flowing stream, crashing waves or any other noises. Vibrates strongly and vibrates more steadily the closer the target. It is very sensitive and will pick up tiny pieces of metal. It is rugged and waterproof.
