As for the difference between the ATX and the CTX is the area inside the shafts that can pinch the cable,
The CTX from the photo above and my poor memory there is only one thin tube that has a possibility to pinch the cable where as
the ATX has three thicker tubes to damage the cable.
My action when collapsing the shaft is to STOP as soon as I feel resistance. Also a full turn of the shaft in the control housing mount will loosen or tighten the coil which may have an affect on the way the shaft will collapse.
Of course a thorough fresh water rinse is a must especially after a salt water hunt to keep things gliding smoothly.

Cracking is not pinching behavior. This is poor cable sleeve quality and reaction with fiberglass chemistry.

As I imagined. Five months after replacing the plate of the inner cable was again dissolved. The ATX is allergic to sea water.
When garrett take a stand and say that they did biodegradable plates?

Automatic recycle mode ON. Maybe for few years everything will be organic... and you can eat your housing...

Has anybody recently bought a ATX and knows that the machine was made recently and is having this issue still? I hope the tread dies out I'm tired of all the negitive that the ATX is getting . Why doesn't anybody post anymore.

New customers,ME, are scared off by the cable problem--Garrett is selling so much stuff I guess their attitude is STFU !!
