Periscope Probe

A probe or a Metal detector in it's own right ....... depends on where and why it's used.

Perhaps like a Gold Spear it could signal on micro gold in a waterway.

I watched the start and scrolled through to the 3 minute mark. The item looks a bit like a tray off a set of scales. A long way down but i am still not in favour of cutting a full plug in a lawn. The sensor seems to work ok.

They stopped making the Periscope Probe quite a few years ago. There was in fact a whole forum dedicated to it's use and many discussions on it in the USA. 
Tried 3 times to buy one on ebay.com(US) over the years....only to be let down by the fact they always sold for over AU$600 and that was even for a used one. 
I eventually purchased a CP200 and then the Cache Pro Pinpointer that has a smaller length metal(stainless) probe. 
I hardly ever use them anymore.   
both purchased direct from
http://www.intexsystemscorp.com/
They now have the newer Cache-Pro Delux.
As a far as pinpoint probe goes they're sort of OK. A little bit of a fiddle around setting them up and given the fact you are probably going to dig a plug anyway and mostly based on what your detector is telling you, you would probably also have probes, like the pistol prob or other that can  detect a metal target at a little more depth without actually making contact with the target and having to actually touch it.
Can't see where a periscope probe or any other similar would have ever have any advantage other than possibly working it as ivanll suggests, as the gold spear for micro gold in a water way.
