Garrett’s New Waterproof Pinpointer
Garrett Announces new Waterproof Pinpointer
Garland, Texas (January 7, 2015) — The latest treasure hunting product from Garrett Metal
Detectors, the Pro-Pointer AT, is guaranteed to cause a splash. Garrett’s best-selling Pro-Pointer
pinpointer now has a completely new all-terrain version that is fully waterproof to a maximum
depth of 10 feet. Hand-held pinpointers have become essential tools to speed the recovery of coins,
rings, and other items dug by metal detector users.
“The exciting thing about the new environmentally sealed Pro-Pointer AT is its extreme versatility,”
says Garrett marketing director Steve Moore. “Our customers have been begging Garrett to make
an underwater pinpointer, and we are thrilled to deliver exactly what they want. This is an essential
metal detecting accessory that will offer the user more time spent hunting for new treasures and
less time struggling to recover detected treasures.”
Garrett’s Pro-Pointer AT produces an audio and/or vibration alert when it detects a metallic target.
The rate of the pulsing audio and vibrations increase proportionately (a patented Garrett feature)
as the pinpointer is moved closer to the target. The Pro-Pointer AT includes three Sensitivity settings
and a Fast Retune feature, both helpful for gold prospectors whose pinpointers can be challenged
by the highly mineralized soils they frequently encounter.
The Pro-Pointer AT comes in an orange color that makes it easy to see underwater and easy to find
if misplaced in the field. Other new product attributes include: an auto-off feature, a lost pinpointer
alarm, LED target illumination, a measuring scale, and a lanyard attachment ring to secure the
Pro-Pointer AT to your belt, digging pouch, vest, or detector. The new Pro-Pointer AT will be
demonstrated this week, January 6–9, at Garrett’s booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las
Vegas, and again at the 2015 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show, which runs from
January 20–23 at Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. The U.S. MSRP for this new product is $149.95
and first orders will begin shipping in February. The exceedingly popular original Pro-Pointer will
continue to be offered at the new U.S. MSRP of $129.95.
