    DW-BGW -- THANK YOU, for recommending. Beach Bandit -- I'd be happy to set you up with a 2-piece shaft, if you would like. Each of my shafts are hand-made, can be customized to your needs, and are of very high quality. I think you'd be pleased... Thanks! Steve

    From my view, Minelab has always had an overabundance of "arrogance," and "we know better what you need, than you do" type of attitude. BUT -- the one thing they've always had, is the PERFORMANCE, and so it's hard to toss their machines aside, despite some of these "arrogance" issues, because...

    Minelab Americas Customer Care

    I can't speak for any other shaft manufacturers, but I can say that in my case, I spent ALOT of time way back during the design stage of my lower rods, working and testing to get the width of the lower rod piece (and the washers) "just right," so that when tightened down to the point where the...

    Jayhop -- Project, LOL! It's funny, WAY back before any of these coil ear stiffeners were on the market, a fellow detectorist and one of my customers, who frequents many forums under the name "Colonel Dan," suggested to me that I might want to look into making something for Equinox users, that...

    jayhop -- "Welding" a "stiffener" onto a coil that is out of warranty makes alot of sense to me. I agree with you that something that physically attaches (i.e. is "bonded) to both the coil ears, AND to the coil body itself, is the best option. However, I'm not sure I would use 3D-printed...

    Broke my Coil ear AGAIN!!! Attempting rear with Super Glue

    There are several videos on youtube as to how to repair coil ears. Super glue won't hold it. You need a rigid piece of plastic, like acrylic, trimmed to roughly the shape of your coil ear, and then epoxy it in place as a "backer" for the broken coil ear, using a high-quality epoxy that is...

    Upper and Lower Shaft

    Marc, I build both standard and custom carbon-fiber shafts for the Equinox, in both "traditional" black carbon fiber, as well as a number of different color options. If/when you may consider purchasing a carbon-fiber shaft, feel free to contact me. Thanks! Steve
