My Own Gold Monster Shaft Modification

Recommended Posts

Thought I would post on how I modified a GPX shaft to make it a little more compact.  I cut roughly 6" off the end and drilled 7 more holes in the shaft so the lower poll would go further up into the upper shaft.  Now my Monster shortens up to about 30" and extends to 4 feet.  I now have lots of adjustment options from extra short to full length. I also picked up an extra lower poll to keep the second coil mounted.  Changing coils is a pet peeve of mine so I like to keep it quick and simple. I've been on 4 short hunts now with this setup and can't be more happy.

OK, now that is real nice. If I had not had a Golden Mask rod sitting around for a year looking for a use I would do this instead, and frankly I like your solution better. Simple and to the point - thanks for posting!
