- This is one of the best stud finder tools you can find at a pro level without breaking the bank. The large display helps you figure out exactly what is going on behind that wall. It requires a couple passes to pre-map the area and then displays the materials it is looking at. It does require a bit more effort than simpler stud finders do - but it returns that effort with a much clearer picture of what you are working with. This is a fantastic tool for remodelers, general contractors, installers, and service technicians. Most professional will be able to put these thorough scanning abilities to great use.
