    Looking for a bottle probe

    I wanna start probing this property for bottles. Is 4ft the norm or 5 or 6? Any suggestions on a seller at good prices? Thank you

    Call HD supply or Pelican construction supply. They should have some probes in stock. I would go with a 5'

    The probe needs to be spring steel. There are plenty of probe suppliers, but some will send you a malleable steel one, which is not optimal.

    I use a 6' long 3/8" T&T tools probe. Ground here in Texas is hard a bricks so you need a good solid probe...their probes have replaceable tips so I've been running the same probe for the past 6 years but probably gone through 10 tips in that time.

    I use a 3' probe as a general woods-walking tool. When it comes to real digging at a found dump I get out the 5'. Spring-steel is a must.

    I use a 5 foot spring steel probe, 4 to short & 6 to long. 5 just right. LEON.
