    Which one? I see both available for around the same cost....is one more effective?
    Thanks in advance!

    For dimensioned lumber, the 4 pin is better but for firewood, 2 pins.

    Two pin is much easier to use, getting all 4 pins to contact an iregular shaped split is somewhat dificult.

    I have a 4 pin and have never had trouble with getting a reading. I'm sure a 2 pin would be easier though.
