It’s a conspiracy, set-up, plot, whatever, and I’m thinking a little payback may well be in order. You see yesterday my doorbell rang and when I went to see who was there I found a gal from UPS holding a package from Sweet Home. After signing for it I opened it and almost fell over! Are you ready? Stand back…take a deep breath, drum roll please….their new TRX pinpointer!
My first thought was this is some kind of a joke. Why would they send me this? They all know how I feel about pinpointers. Oh they’ve prodded me, kidded me and threatened to burn all my books if I didn’t get with the program, but so far I’ve pretty much been able to put them off. Well apparently they’re going to continue to turn the screws and won’t be happy until I cry uncle!
Anyway try as I might I couldn’t find out who the culprit was at the factory and decided to go ahead and give the TRX a look see. After taking it out of the box I was impressed by it’s looks and design. It was slim, compact and totally different than the older Bullseye model. It also has a couple of features for tekkies like me. One is the Lost Pinpointer Alarm. After five minutes of inactivity (power on) the TRX will sound off every 15 seconds, allowing the forgetful, the aged and inebriated to to locate it quickly. Also the bright orange screwcap will hit you right between the eyes.
The TRX can be powered by two AA batteries or one 9 volt and comes with clips for both. A few other features: Audio & Vibrate Alert, LED light, Target Racheting, Ground Balance, low Battery Alert and depth markings up to 9 inches. I was also impressed with the the heavy duty holster (belt loop & clip).
MAKING NO PROMISES
Brace yourself. I have decided to give this puppy a try. Weather and aches permitting, maybe even this weekend. Making no promises mind you but willing to give it a shot. It won’t be easy for me as I like to travel light and the TRX will be one more thing to take, one more thing to attach to my belt and one more thing to lose. Stay tuned!
To everyone at the factory….I WILL find out who’s behind this!
THIS IS A FRIGHTENING STATISTIC!

That’s scary. It means 75% are running around untreated!!
