    Bullseye Pinpointer

    I've been MDing for a lot of years but never used a pinpointer until recently. I picked up a White's Bullseye 140mm from a friend that never used it. Set at max sensitivity I don't get a signal until I'm about 1 inch from the object. Is this normal or should I be getting better range/sensitivity from the pinpointer? Thanks!

    That's pretty normal for the 140.. I have a 120 that will get 2 inches on a good day. I can't remember the 140 I had ever getting more than 1 1/2 inches
