Replacement Shaft For Elite Or GT...

Notice it's got a v-clip mount on the top of the grip for easy mounting of the meter without having to mod your own using a pipe hanger or something to mount it there. I hear these are really nice shafts and you can also get a version meant for the older Sovereigns. I think the only difference is that this one has the box clip the Elite/GT use while the other has the V-clip mount the older Sovereigns used for mounting the box just like the Minelab meters mount using a V-clip. If you use a shaft that doesn't come with the proper clip or v-clip mount for the box, you can easily mount yours on a new shaft. I just drilled out the two rivets holding the GT's box clip together, as I wasn't using the original arm cup and used a Whites, so I just riveted the part of the two-part box clip onto the shaft that I needed to clip the box on. The stock arm cup normaly holds the box clip in place via one part of it. Since I didn't need that part I just used the other half that the box clips to and riveted that to my custom light weight shaft I built. The v-clip can also be drilled out for mounting a meter elsewhere via a pipe hanger and a couple flat head screws. None of this stuff needs done with the above shaft as it's all done for you and already has the box clip mounted on it.
