Atx coil cable

Just wondering if Garrett has fixed the issue with the atx coil cable issues especially with the new coils that are being put out. Also wondering what the 2 major issues would be with the atx other than weight and sand/salt getting into the parts. Was looking into the deepseeker pkg with the 11 by 13 dd. Also looking at the 3030 but this atx looks much better in a few ways.

Is the cable deteriorating and self disintegrating, or is it being mistreated ......... I've seen a few of the latter mainly due to ignorance.

I have seen both. I also smoothed over the sharp edge of the shaft sections that could aggravate the pinching situation. I also do not collapse the shafts to the max anymore. No problem in the past 18 months or so.

Disintegrating - bland-new from the factory, never even put on the machine and the coil has micro cracks in it on the inside bends of the coiled cable. No mistreatment, unless it was "factory mistreatment"!?

Garrett use to to have an excellent customer service, I have been fortunate to experience this first hand several times, even from over here .... but I contacted the good people at Garrett's service department first and asked if I could send the item in question in for service/repair.

I found this approach more polite and therefore better than a whole lot of forum fuming.

As to who purchase an ATX on not and for what reason, is their concern and of little interest to me.

:cheers:

After 7 years of use my ATX coil cable coating is now starting to crack. :cry2:

Not to worry, I have given the cable a new outer coating of a different material it's likely to last another 10 years. :clapping:
