Garret Propointer
« on: February 28, 2014, 11:58 »
Hi all,

Does anyone know of a cheap retailer for the Garret Propointer in Australia? Most come at a cost of $200.

I found a seller on ebay pricing the item (with postage) at $144.25, but I am skeptical as to whether this is a cheap knock off. Link below.

Any help on the matter is appreciated.

Happy to help Gentrix. I don't mind supporting overseas businesses when they make quality products for our hobby.

Don't be bluffed either about people trying to say the warranty isn't covered if you buy it from the states.  I sent one of my pro pointers back last week to a dealer I purchased it from in the states.  Warranty covered no problem.

Garrett U.S.A honor their warranty, no worries.

I also notice alot of Garrett machines available again on ebay e:g AT Pro for approx $700AU shipped.
