I use the xpointer mate. Great probe...only bad thing i have to say is the wee buttons can come off dead easy. Just watch what way you put it in yer holster. Magic bit o kit tho

Rap a bit of electrical tape round the probe and over the button, it will slide into the holster without catching.

I 'think' there's been a redesign of the buttons at some point or maybe I dreamt it lol

I mentioned to you at the Glasgow dig that as far as I’m aware the Chinese manufacturer changed the button design/shape without confirming it with Deteknix. The first wave of the e-pointer has a flush button; the second wave had an edge that slightly protrudes above the body of the probe and can catch the button on the holster. The only reason I know this is I bought Supermoleman one for his birthday and he lost a button. The guys at Deteknix explained the issue, apologised and sent half a dozen spare buttons to us.  Just in case wrap electrical tape round the button nearest the light.

Indiana ;).

Have just ordered myself the X Pointer, thanks to those who recommended it, much appreciated  :D :D :D. I was losing the heid on Sunday with my cheap old Bullseye one playing up. I have ordered it in Hot Pink (dont judge me, matches my hat) and cant wait to try it out!!

Cheers again for advice  ;D ;D  ;D
