DR.ÖTEK Pinpointer Metal Detector
A pinpoint metal detector is a perfect companion for any serious treasure hunter. This is especially true for those smaller items that can be difficult to find due to the size and detection range of a regular metal detector’s coil.
This is where a pinpoint detector can come in handy, but does the Dr Otek MT6 Pinpointer deserve a spot in your loadout? Let’s find out.
Digging around blindly can waste a lot of time and if you’re not careful, you could actually damage the object you’re digging for.
DR OTEK WATERPROOF PINPOINT METAL DETECTOR FEATURES
The Dr Otek MT6 Pinpointer is advertised as a professional-quality pinpoint detector that comes at a much lower price than the alternatives.
It features a simple one-button design that makes it easy to operate, and it’s suitable for use by both experienced adults and children that are just getting started. It’s roughly the size of a small flashlight and it helps you detect the distance of the object with its 4-level LED light.
The light itself goes from white to blue, green then red. White would indicate that something is nearby and red means it’s far away.
The Dr Otek MT6 Pinpointer is also fully waterproof, meaning it can be used underwater without issue. It’s powered by a 9V alkaline battery and supports up to 10cm in depth. This doesn’t sound like much, but it’s perfectly acceptable as a companion to your metal detector and will help you find the object that you’re digging for.
The body of the Dr Otek MT6 Pinpointer is surprisingly lightweight yet sturdy. It doesn’t feel like a tool that will break or get damaged under typical wear and tear.
It’s perfectly suitable for serious hunts even if you plan to go underwater with it. There’s no complex setup with the Dr Otek MT6 Pinpointer and you’ll find that it’s good to go out of the box. It doesn’t have a speaker and you’ll mainly be using the LED indicators to detect if you’ve found something.
For the asking price, it’s a fantastic addition to any hunter’s list of accessories and will help reduce the amount of time that you spend digging for something after you’ve picked it up with your detector.
USING THE DR OTEK WATERPROOF PINPOINT METAL DETECTOR
On first impressions, the Dr Otek MT6 Pinpointer is surprisingly light and doesn’t add much weight to a harness or your pockets. Operating the pinpointer is easy enough; simply press the button and it turns on.
Point it at the area that your metal detector found something and you’ll find anything that, according to the spec, is within 10cm. In practice, the Dr Otek MT6 Pinpointer can actually detect a little further than 10cm which can be good for anything that’s buried deeper in the ground.
It’s a fairly powerful tool that we can certainly recommend anyone to add to their list of accessories. If you have a harness, then it makes taking out and using the pinpointer a little more comfortable since you’ll likely need to take your hands off your metal detector before using it. In most cases, you’ll have the pinpointer and your spade in another hand ready to dig.
If you’ve even broken or damaged an object that you detected, then you’ll understand just how important it is to have a pinpoint metal detector.
The Dr Otek MT6 Pinpointer is an affordable option that serves its purpose with zero issues. It simply just works without any complaints and helps to ensure that you don’t damage whatever it is you’re digging up. It also helps with impatient hunters that want to quickly move from one spot to another.
