Well it looks like Whites will have a New Pinpointer  coming out in the near future. By all the rumors it will be a great product with some new inovations which will be great advantage to the user.

Should be a goodie, beepn.

I have been following it's progress for a while, now.

Apparently there's a holdup on the plastics, or some such thing.

Release date was supposed to be in the "Fall".

So far....nothing!

Any idea on pricing yet?  Would be good to have another 'decent' option apart from the big two.

Hi Sambo,

It  would have to be in the same ballpark price as Garrett and Minelab i would think . The quality of Whites products is abosulete top class.

I asked the Australian Whites importer about it on the weekend but he didn't have much to say.
He was a little busy looking for keys at the tarna key hunt. He and wife managed 6 between them.

Yes noticed it on the Whites Electronics Forum. Customer playing with it in dealers shop. Hmmmmmm.
It certainly wont beat my detectorpro p.i. for depth thats a fact.

But if it beats the GPP and the PF. then i will look at it as a back up unit.

I wonder what it will sell for in Au.
 Around $150 US,convert to Australian and then add the difference we in Oz have to pay.  If anyone rings Paul in Dunolly, (whites) let us know what he said. I am interested in one for the wife and her Ace.

A reputable detectorist in the states has used the prototype of the trx and at this point claims the whites is undoutably the best pinpointer he has ever used by far. I like the remote if you have lost it give it a push on the remote and wella the pinpointer beeps.

It would be good to see a side by side comparison with all the brand name pointers .  Then we could make a decision.   Garry

Hi Ray,

The quote from Carl (at) Whites. The price has not been nailed down.  The IP68  rating was a early goal which yielded on overly quiet beeper volume,

So we have had to backoff  that for now. It will be initially  weatherproof  not waterproof, and we will continue to research ways to acheive waterproof.

beepn said in another post that the Vulcan looked similar,i think the end cap is different but haven't read up on the specs.Perhaps someone could put up a Vulcan picture here so we can have a look at the two pointers.

The shape is different on the end BUT IT IS BRIGHT ORANGE. The colour that needs to be used  is one which stands out in the grass.

I know a couple of members who have droped their pinpointer in the scrub and never to find it. So bright green or yellow or bright blue will still blend in.

The specs are nothing like that of Whites its the orange end that is similar.

All manufacturers will have a product that is some where in the ball park with size and shape  that is whats suited to make it user freindly. Except The Pistol Probe which is like a pistol and large.
