Franklin Stud Finder T13

Franklin Stud Finder Review – ProSensor 710 and T13

While advanced wall scanners exist, it’s the stud finder that we keep coming back to again and again. Franklin Sensors has completely redesigned the ProSensor 710 and it’s both unique and amazing.

It will detect anything within that area and do it without requiring you to slide the sensor across the wall, though you can do that if you want to. The result is fast scanning that seems to be more accurate – and definitely faster – than any stud finder we’ve yet used. We’re just amazed no one thought of this sooner.
