Rated 2 out of 5 by michael11 No Comparison
I bought the Bounty Hunter Pointer to see if it mached the one I bought from White's, and found that there was no comparison between the two, White's was much better, but a little larger than the Bounty Hunter's. I thought that maybe, all Pointers were the same, that it would come within a quarter inch, or one half inch, but Beside the White's equipment being a little larger, Whites blow's the Bounty Hunter Pointer away when it comes to pointing to the exact placing of the object that is underground, plus the White's is much louder, and has a control knob if you want to adjust the sound. The cost is approximately the same.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fooled Buyer Beware
When I purchased this item, I was considering a later buy of a Bounty Hunter regular metal detector but on first glimpse of this product quickly realized that wasn't going to happen. Cheap materials, shoddy construction and unreliable performance make it one of the most regretable and expensively worthless purchases I've made in recent memory. When I DOES pick up a signal and vibrate the battery compartment cap flies off. I expected better of Bass Pro Shops, but you won't get me again!

This little device is lightweight and easily carries in a back pocket or jacket pocket. Directions claim it will detect objects up to one inch away, but my experience was that it was 1/2 inch or less. The tone is pretty weak, but I guess that shouldn't matter if it can be heard at all. I felt the price was a bit high, but I am not an expert as to the cost of the technology required to build it.

My daughter and I use this to pin point small objects without even needing to dig some of the time. Has helped to quickly find trash as well as coins. Definitely a time saver.

It suppliment a standard metal detector, by simply narrowing the time digging and sifting out a small coin or object. Depth is limited to one inch deep for small objects and maybe two inches deep for large metal objects.
Its finds "Gold" as it finds any metal, no special setting. If you are asking about gold nuggets, I have no idea. If you are asking about gold coins, I guess it would signal just like any other coin. I have not found any "Gold", I have found one small plated chain, a plated ring and a bronze WWII metal.
If i know the approximate location of something, would this work well? I usually know within a 20ft radius of where something i lost is. (ex. when i shoot and loose an arrow) how good would this detector be under those circumstances?
I use my main metal detector to locate my aluminum arrows, I bury under grass. The range is too limited for this pinpointer. How tendious it would be to locate an arrow in a 20 foot square with a device, which is capable of finding objects a inch deep.
