I own one of the early 800s. Shaft was really wobbly. Called Minelab and they replaced it right away, no questions asked since it was a well known issue. The replacement shaft is rock solid. I know several 800 owners who have bought them in the last 2 years and their shafts are solid.Ok I was told by somebody that there is play in the shaft when swinging.(this might be related to earlier 800"s is it still like that). And to eliminate that was to buy a carbon shaft. How many of you did that and what is the best shaft out there.
That’s the shaft I bought.I got it because of the weight but mainly because of the adjustability. Condenses down to 22inches.Takes up no space in the back seat.This is my 800 as I hunt it. It is a carbon shaft and a good one from a UK company. Has a notch all the way down each shaft. It cannot miss a-line you can also adjust the distance from arm cuff to handle. I also like very much the disc at the top of the handle. Was an eBay purchase and helps with wrist fatigue.
Yes, they are extremely well made, strong and the customer service by Steve is the best! Had one of his CF rods and most importantly his counter weight to offset the NOX nose heaviness. Had it over 1/12 years with no trouble.Does anybody have Steve Detector Rods?
I just bought a upper and lower shat from stave it is a excellent product works great also with counterbalance it really balances it out. Working with Steve was the best experience I have had buying anything for metal detecting in my 35 years of detecting.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.
Does anybody have Steve Detector Rods
Steve‘s are by far the best. Everything about them are rock solid. i use the counterbalance with the 15 inch coil, really helps. Great customer service also.Does anybody have Steve Detector Rods?
