    I halve to steady turn the sensitivity up or down.Good for beginners.
    • ★★★★★ Know what you're getting

    Review by Juan Val Dez on August 20, 2019

    This is not a pin pointer that will detect a coin at a couple of inches, and in truth is won't detect one at one inch either. That being said, I will always have this in my kit bag when I detect. Why? I do a lot of detecting in local parks and sports complexes where you do not dig or cut plugs. In these places you pop targets out of the ground using a small screwdriver or gasket scraper. I've found dimes to be the most difficult coin to recover due to being small and thin. Having a thin long probe that won't indicate until it touches the target is indispensable. Other pointers will get me close but the Bounty Hunter will put me right on the coin or small piece of foil down in the hole. If you try to dig with the tip you will wear right through the tip (I filled mine with epoxy and am still using it). Most detectors will get you close, the better pin pointers will get you even closer, and the BH will find it for you. The long shaft is great for getting down in those finger size holes I use to recover items from places you just don't dig at. It's great for what I use it for, and in fact it's the only one that does what I need. It's not my primary pin pointer but it's always going to be there to do what the other one can't.
    • ★★★★★ 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...

    Review by Kim K on July 22, 2015

    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.
    • ★★★★★ WOW!!!

    Review by S B on May 4, 2015

    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.
    • ★★★★★ Not Worth It

    Review by Frank K on April 7, 2015

    I can't give this pinpointer 1 star, but to submit my review I had to give it a 1, in reality it isn't worth even 1. I received it as a BOGO when I bought my Minelab 705 and I regret adding this to my purchase. Having Bounty in the name gave me some assurance that this would be a pin pointer of worth. First off, it is made of a plastic that does not feel heavy enough for use, it feels too thin to use in dirt without damage. The distance that is needed to detect a piece of metal is less than 1/2 inch. Really, that's all the distance it can respond to metal. This pinpointer goes in my junk box and I won't buy another from Bounty.
    • ★★★★★ Bounty Hunter Pinpointer

    Review by Kevin B on February 24, 2015

    I kept everything Bounty Hunter. I have the Quick Draw detector I purchased and the pinpointer to help me with the final findings of what I was looking for. The pinpointer only works on the side of the wand, not the tip and it does have to be within an inch of the the metal object. For $60 you'd think it would be better than what it is. Guess i'll spend a couple hundred now to speed up the findings.
    • ★★★★★ Bounty Hunter Pinpointer Un-Useable Discription

    Review by Daniel H on December 12, 2014

    Very disappointed in this pinpointer description for locating an object. There should be a description (was not) on the technical side that would state that this unit will not detect a object unless you are within 1/2" (one half inch). Other pinpointers will do better. Some have a range up to 4" (four inches).
