Garrett is releasing an impressive upgraded version of their popular ProPointer detecting pinpointer in February.
Detecting365 sources report that the new ProPointer AT will be more sensitive than the current ProPointer, and will be fully waterproof to 10 feet. This is outstanding news for the water hunters out there, and will save the rest of us worry in the rain and mud. The ProPointer AT will also boast three levels of sensitivity, a Fast Retune feature that works like a Ground Balance, a lost pinpointer alarm, auto power off, and its own lanyard attachment loop, which was missing from the original ProPointer. All this without adding another button!
As you can see from the photo, the thing I’m most excited about is that the ProPointer AT will not be black! It’s orange! I’ve been preaching about this for a couple of years now. If you’ve ever left one behind in the dark or dropped one in tall grass and undergrowth, this visible color and the “lost” alarm are extremely welcome features.
The new Pro-Pointer AT is being unveiled this week, January 6–9, 2015 at Garrett’s booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and again at the 2015 SHOT Show from January 20–23 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
Interestingly, Garret named the new ProPointer the “AT”, which is completely suitable as it is waterproof and a perfect accompaniment to their most popular detector, the also-waterproof Garrett AT PRO, as well as any other metal detector made.
Garrett’s retail price for the ProPointer AT will be $149.95. Our sources say the original ProPointer will still be offered at a new MSRP of $129.95.
The ProPointer AT is slated to begin shipping by Garrett to dealers in February.
Congratulations to Garrett for re-engineering and upgrading the ProPointer. It is clearly the most popular pinpointer on the market, and this shows a commitment to continuous improvement that is commendable. Other manufacturers are on notice. Please blow our minds in 2015!!!
