The Xpointer does not have that issue...

But will be interesting on Monday to see how the new Wader LI and Diver perform...

I've used the carrot now fairly hard for 3 weeks and no problems.   It's the old one that's had some nice upgrades.  I really like the louder sound/vibration as I always use headphones.  It does have sensitivity adjustments but unlike the new Whites one its simple and you can't mistakenly adjust it while turning it on.  It appears to go a bit deeper also.  The on/off button is more robust and very easy to use.  I have the old Garret one, the Minelab one and the new Whites one.  I always go back to the Garret Pro pointer as primary and will not attempt to try another and waste my money.  Just like detectors to each their own I guess.

Well, many thanks to my hunting buddy, I'm another new carrot owner :).
The above youtube videos for me anyway, show how good the garrett products are.

I didn't see the video yet but I showed a newcomer at our camp how to supertune his Garrot carrot. Increased nearly 2" on a 50c coin.
