We grew single crystals of PrCoIn5, PrRhIn5, and PrIrIn5 with the tetragonal crystal structure and measured the electrical resistivity, specific heat, magnetic susceptibility, magnetization and de Haas-van Alphen effect. These Pr compounds reveal no magnetic ordering. The topology of the Fermi surfaces is the same as that of a non-4f reference compound LaRhIn5. The cyclotron mass and/or the electronic specific heat coefficient are also approximately the same as those of LaRhIn5. The magnetic susceptibility and magnetization are anisotropic, reflecting the crystal structure, which are well explained by the tetragonal crystalline electric field scheme with the singlet ground state.
