White's Bullseye TRX
by Paul Southerland

I watched as a fellow hunting partner's pit grew deeper while he searched for an object his metal detector told him was still in the hole. It was typical Oklahoma red clay with the current summer drought baking it into a hard mass tough to dig.

As he tried to get deeper I offered to recheck the hole. My White's MXT Pro showed the object was possibly a quarter, still there and not centered in the hole but off to one side.

Checking the side of the hole indicated by my detector a bright silver quarter was barely visible resting on its edge. Retrieving a nice 1925 Standing Liberty quarter my partner's head dropped in disgust as he noticed, while trying to get deeper in the hole, the point of his digger had scraped along the side of the coin leaving a very noticeable scratch.

The pinpoint mode on most metal detectors will only get you close to begin digging. If your using one of the really large coils while out detecting you can be off a couple of inches when you start to retrieve an item. The use of smaller coils on a detector will be more accurate when pinpointing but at a loss of depth while searching.

I've attended many seeded hunts put on by metal detecting clubs. As I search the hunt field I make a point of sweeping my coil over the holes dug by other contestants that have been filled back in. I often discover tokens or silver coins buried for the hunt left behind by those who don't own or use a pinpointer and have given up on the hole in their haste to move on.

Both of these common occurrences can easily be avoided by the use of a small handheld pinpointer. The Bullseye TRX pinpointer just released by White's can help speed up the recovery time and insure accurate locating of targets while digging. With its excellent sensitivity and ability to detect items you can even zero in on shallow targets before you start to dig, thus avoiding damage to a find while retrieving it. More on the sensitivity of the unit in the bench test below.

Using the latest miniaturized components available, White's has put a complete ground-balancing VLF circuit inside a rugged weatherproof housing.  Operating at a frequency of 12 kHz it searches in an all metal non-motion mode. The unit is 10 inches in length and weighs only 6.5 ounces.

The TRX indicates targets with Audio and Vibrate Alerts that are both turned on by default or can be turned off and used independently. The Audio Alert operates as a series of beeps that increase as the tip gets closer to the target. Within 1/4 inch of the target the beeps become a continuous tone.  Equipped with an Overload Indicator feature the TRX alerts will give a series of long responses to indicate detection of an excessively large target.

Upon unpacking the unit the first thing I noticed was the dual battery holders the TRX comes with. You can operate with either two AA batteries or a single 9-volt. Most detectors on the market today use one of these two battery sizes and if you carry spares in the field for your detector, as you should, you'll also have extras with you for this pinpointer as well. The unit is equipped with an audio alert that issues a two-tone alarm indicating a low battery status.

There is an LED light that shows the unit is turned on and can be used in low light to illuminate a digging hole. It will blink continuously to indicate the batteries are low.

The TRX comes with a sturdy well-sewn holster that will fit up to a 3 inch belt. That is a plus for those like me who prefer to use a wide belt around our waist to carry digging pouches. A loop to attach a lanyard is provided on both the holster and rear of the unit if you desire to use one to avoid laying your pinpointer down and forgetting it. Should you do so White's has incorporated a Lost Pinpointer Alarm mode in the electronics of the unit. If you walk off and leave it on the ground when left powered on the TRX activates the Lost Pinpointer Alarm after 5 minutes of inactivity and will issue a long beep every 15 seconds. The TRX also has an automatic power-off mode and will turn itself off after five minutes in the Lost Pinpointer Alarm mode to conserve battery power.

The outside shell of the unit is marked with a ruler in one inch increments and the rear molded in bright orange so it can be easily seen if left in the grass. The shell is easily replaceable should it get damaged. You simply remove one screw inside the battery compartment, slide out the main interior and slide on a new shell.

The TRX is made in America at White's Sweet Home, Oregon plant and comes with a full two-year warranty.

Bench Testing:

I popped an almost dead 9-volt battery in the unit to test the low battery tone alarm and flashing LED warning. Both worked as stated by the manufacturer.

I used a penny, nickel, dime and quarter to check the Audio Alert. I found that it worked perfectly with the beeps increasing and becoming one continuous tone as the tip of the unit was against the coins. The unit detected a quarter from 4 1/2 inches away.I also found that by using the on/off button I could shrink the size of the search field the unit was seeing. When hunting playgrounds in the city parks this will be useful to pinpoint items that are only a few inches away from the large metal poles holding up the playground equipment.

On checking the TRX's sensitivity I tested the unit to see how it reacted to one of the smallest items of value I find while hunting park playgrounds, a .925 (sterling silver) earring back. It detected it with no problem. I then tried it out on some very small pieces of gold. The smallest was a tiny .042 gram flake. This was about the smallest piece of gold the unit would sound off on. I tried it on a .512 gram picker and found the TRX could see a piece that small from 1 1/4 inches away. A .078 piece was detected at 1/2 inch from the unit's tip. Those are extremely tiny pieces of gold and I was amazed it saw them. A lot of the metal detectors on the market will not locate gold that small for you to even begin searching for with a pinpointer.

Field Testing:

I took the TRX along with a White's MXT Pro to hunt a large field that was the former site of a dairy farm started around statehood. The field has yielded a lot of coins, mostly wheat pennies, along with a few of the tokens good for one quart of milk the dairy supplied to customers.

We usually can't hunt there in the summer as the ground has gravel mixed in with the clay and gets extremely hard. The recent melting snow left it much easier to dig this time of year. The first item detected was a WW II silver nickel at 4 inches. I then dug several pennies. My detector's screen finally flashed the VDI number of 75 I was looking for that the tokens usually read at. The target was 5 inches down and my digger was glancing off pieces of gravel as I tried to dig. I kept using the TRX to keep the item centered in my digging hole. The tokens are made of aluminum and easily damaged. I was lucky not only to dig one of the dairy tokens but also a version not found before.

The TRX is very effective in detecting the smallest of metal objects and accurately locating their position for digging. The sensitivity is very impressive. I found the unit to feel both sturdy and very comfortable in my hand.

If you wish to avoid a lot of unnecessary digging, speed up your recovery time and lower the chance of damaging an item then you should check out the Bullseye TRX pinpointer. Visit White's website at www.whiteselectronics.com or contact their friendly staff at (800) 547-6911.

Reviewer's Note: The TRX unit used for this review and field test was selected at random from dealer's stock at Wayne's Treasure Shop in Oklahoma City.

It's not just a pinpointer, it's a mini detector!
Sure, I've read about it just like I did all the other brands and styles, but this one is very unique. Its highest setting will go almost 6 inches on some targets. I pulled 5 inches on a .52 caliber Ringtail Sharps and that wasn't the most impressive performance. While detecting this old military encampment I discovered a location that was just target over load for my machine. I put down the machine and just used the pinpointer going slowly back and forth. Found a pewter button, several fired "P"caps, couple .44 caliber round balls, camp lead.
Love my new piece of equipment!!!

My TRK is great. The more i use it the more I love it!! Had a Garrett pinpointer - falsed on me took it apart and wasn't impressed how it was put together. Failure will eventually happen for sure it's just a matter of time, before it starts falsing the way it was make really shocked me.

As good as it gets!!!
This little tool is the best little device, to go along with my MXT All Pro, than I could ever dream of!!! It is an absolute "must have" if you ask me! It increases my speed from target to target 7 fold! I cannot imagine hunting without it! White's and excellence go hand in hand! I need to get the MX Sport next!! Thanks White's!

Simply the Best
I own a Garrett Propointer, a PI Pistol Probe and now the TRX. The only thing I can say is that the TRX is Simply the Best!

Happy to have it
Love the TRX. What a time saver. Can't imagine that I used to detect without one. I only have one concern. I wish the little speaker holes were on the top of the unit instead of right next to the power button. Mine tends to get plugged up whenever I am hunting in moist ground. Other than that, what a great tool.

Great pinpointer
I love White's products, but had issues with the old White's Bullseye. I bought the new TRX a year ago and has worked flawlessly! Lasts forever it seems like on AA batteries. Excellent product!

Made in America!! Awesome Craftsmanship
Accurate, submersible in water and pinpoints better then any other pin pointer on the market!! Well worth the price point!!

Even with problems it still gets 5 stars
I've had some intermittent erratic proformance when using 9 volt batteries (still indicating close proximity after removing it from target). but with 2 AA's it works flawlessly. White's said to send it in but since I buy my double A batteries in a 30 pack, what's the problem? 8 in the MXT and 2 in the TRX. You can see on my youTube channel how well it works. Type in White's MXT soccer field and click on videos by Filthy lucre. (Shameless plug I know)

The White's TRX is a true home run!
Have you ever got a decent signal that was so hard to find and simply turns out to be a nail? I have spent a lot of time slowly detecting, What is happening is the tip of the nail is creating a hew of a good signal. So when you pin point it with your detector, you end up pinpointing to the side of it. This in many cases are just outside of nearly all pinpointers reach once your hole is dug. Not the case here with the TRX. The TRX easily finds them distant targets. Being able to detect that my target is in the sidewall of the plug has saved me so much time and frustration. The TRX also does an excellent job of ratcheting down for a quick find when you are close to your target or for them times when other metal objects are in the hole. Thank you White's!

This is a fantastic tool!
I love the fact that I can stick the point on the ground and see a target that is 4" to 5" down! Really helps to narrow down the amount of digging and searching that I need to do. Great sturdy construction and the ability to use two types of batteries are a definite plus! Wrap that all up with the fact that its waterproof and you have an unbeatable pin pointer! Thanks again White's!

Great pinpointer! As well as it is Waterproof!!!
I have used several pinpointers. The TRX is very good at detecting deep items. So I don't have dig and miss the item my VX3 is picking up. I have also just learned that the TRX is waterproof!!!
  • 2/25/2015
The TRX Pinpointer is AWESOME! The first time I used it I couldn't believe it.. It was right on the money. I just wish it was totally submersible. To find out how to set your depth from one to four inches watch a YouTube video.

Awesome & A must have piece of your equipment!
Best pinpointer on the market today in my opinion
  • pastfinder
  • 12/1/2014
Great Tool!!!
Tried it out. I found all targets detected. As others have said, the target is pinpointed before digging. It even scored the first silver coin a 61 dime. A real winner this time.

Found ring with this pinpointer
Awesome! Pinpointer has the best depth I have ever seen. I was able to recover a ring today that was in trashy ground with it. Thanks!

Fast & Accurate!
Absolute time-saver, without guesswork. Quick & precise target location, with power concentrated at the tip. Allows for neat plugs - No more holes that look like grave sites!
The TRX greatly increases ground coverage on every hunt.

smaller holes
I designed a drill to hunt in grass field while metal detecting. With the TRX accurate positioning of the target, there is no need to make large holes with my drill anymore.

What can I say. White's has done it again. Best part. It's made in the U.S.A.
It is more sensitive to low conductive targets. Gold and nickels will read farther from the tip than a quarter.

Strongest Detection Range I've tested..
I've not held a White's in many years. When the new TRX came out I wanted one just because the Bullseye II was my first pinpointer. Impressed to say the least. It was so powerful I actually had to turn it down to the 3rd setting. If you are even remotely close to the target it will find it.. No more ghost signals getting away. Being able to adjust the sensitivity and it stay on that setting is a definite plus.... Great job and can't wait to see what else White's has in store for the future of this hobby.

This little guy is the BEST
I use my White's V3i ( I love it ) and this gem to pinpoint the target! More times than not I can pinpoint with my V3i and then use the TRX to isolate exactly where the target is before i even dig! It is an absolute MUST in my book!

First Impressions!
I've had my TRX for about a month. I couldn't believe that the pinpointer was picking up targets so deep right out of the box. All I have done is put batteries in it and dug targets. I'm not digging ditches anymore to find targets. So far I love the TRX and am looking forward to future digs. I thought it was acting up on a couple of my digs. I was getting more signals even after I removed the coin. I would go over the hole and the detector didn't make a sound. I finally took my time and found what was setting of the TRX. It ended up being golf ball sized quartz rocks. I tried a magnet and discovered the rocks had iron in them. So far this a winner in my book. Highly recommended!!!

Bingo! Great tool!
Quick tip! Just to let everyone know, you can adjust the depth of the pointer on the fly! While searching for target at level 4 and after you dig the plug and want to have it more as a shallow pointer, while pointer is on point it at your digging tool at desired depth and quickly and lightly press the on and off button and it will change to that depth. You can do it again at anytime while on. This is great for finding and then searching after plug is dug! Really a cool thing! Found this out buy accident!

All I can say is "WOW"
I recently purchased one of these and all I can say is wow. It is amazing I dig smaller holes, its very sensitive I've been able to get about 4-5 inch depth away from the tip in the hole. When it starts going off I'm really happy with the purchase of this, and yes I recommend and show it off to every one I know that has a detector.
