Stainless Steel Bolts

I notice on the older Nautilus detectors the bolt holding on the coil is in stainless steel. My question: Is it better to retain the stainless steel bolt and nut or change to plastic? It may be the coil has been made to take into consideration the metal bolt?

Happy Hunting

I am hearing if it is non-magnetic with a really strong magnet, not supposed to matter. I am working on balancing a coil and it is perfectly balanced with no rod or bolt but with the bolt and rod throws it off. It seems all other companies went to non-metallic rods and nylon or plastic bolts. Jerry Tyndal used some fiberglass rods years ago and don't remember why he went back. I hope others chime in. I still have an original Tyndal fiberglass rod.

Jerry. What I recalled Jerry try going to lower fiberglass lower shift and made slighter better balance of coils but the cost vs slight rewards went back metal rods. chuck
