X-terra Coil Ear Gap Fix

Got a 705 and the gap between the lower rod and the coil ears was driving me nuts
I didn't want to break off a coil ear
I read some post about this and the different fixes
I found one
The lower rod on my Nokta Fors Relic fits perfect between the coil ears
on the standard 9" concentric coil.
the Nokta bolt is to big but I had a Fisher bolt that worked perfect.
the other end of the lower rod is a little hard to get into the middle shaft but with a little effort it fits
snug and no wobble.

you can by two nylon washers that will fit behind the rubber washes,i buy mine from Ace hardware.thats what I do when I use whites rod for extra rods.it takes about 15 minutes to modify the whites rods to fit the exterra coils, an it works great,and whites rod or a lot cheaper then the M.L.coils.I buy mine fron East texas detectors, for 10.00 a rod.the best price ive found on a M.L.rod was 30.00.

Right you are they are like 43.00 at Kellyco and from what I can tell they are also to narrow for the X-terra coils? I don't know yet because the 705 I received didn't have a lower rod with it the guy said he forgot and he mailed it and it's in Transit (you know code word for LATE)

Well the X-terra lower rod arrived and I was wrong it fit like it should no gap between the ears. I feel like an idiot for going off before I knew what the hell I was talking about, my bad.
