I really like and admire those who come up with such innovations to improve our detecting life and equipment.  However, a primary consideration/concern for beach hunters like me would be that sand gets into everything as we know.  I can see that pesky sand quickly jamming up the telescoping action which will either prevent the telescoping movement altogether, make it increasingly rough to extend/collapse and/or it will sand down the surface of the shafts in short order.

This may work fine for those who don't have to deal with beach sand but I don't think it would work for me.

Just the view from my sandy foxhole....

I use a homemade 1 piece carbon fiber rod with the stock lower, factory is sloppy from day one.  Anyway i think this looks well made and will be a big deal for a lot of people. Agree that its not a good choice for a water machine. People with small cars, apt dwellers and hunting remote spots where you have to buck brush to get to will like this. i have a gun rack that i keep my EQ on or would think about buying one just for the small storage aspect without having to dissemble it.

 Very nice telescopic shaft kit!

That guy could've made that video about 20 minutes shorter though :rolleyes:

Nice weight results! It should be very light.

Agree with Cal_Cobra, the video could be shorter 😉

      Very true Reg, very few 'young'uns' are having a go....but a certain TV show is helping to a small degree I suspect. But from what Ive seen, the current 'instant gratification' generation doesnt have the patience or fortitude to spend time in the bush for more than half an hour...

      When I refer to lower ferrous could be confusing.   I actually am talking about ferrous line being lower on screen hence a higher ferrous number.
      Depth itself of a nonferrous target can effect how high a ferrous reading is provided on Etrac screen.
      Iron, rust, nail or nails can also drive ferrous number higher.
      Ground mineralization levels will drive ferrous number readings.  Higher mineralization soil will usuallynread higher ferrous numbers on targets of equivalent depth vs soil of milder mineralization.
      The orientation, size of target can drive ferrous number also.
      So the total detecting scenario will be evaluated by what the Etrac feels as to how the ferrous number reads.
      New folks to Etrac will find this video definitely helpful.  There are some myths out there as far as using 2 tone ferrous especially.
      What the video shows I have indeed seen in the wild using Etrac and comparing.
      Etrac users wanting more detailed info on this topic see this link (Etrac Manual) pages 63-66.
      Innthe video I stand to correct myself.  I state the tone break built in Etrac using 2 tone ferrous is 19, it is actually 17 ferrous where the detector transactions as far as reporting a higher tone or lower tone.

      A few additional comments.
      Use of 2 tone ferrous.
      Sometimes a user may indeed get a good signal (due to ferrous number reporting in the zone).
      However coil sweep speed and or coil position, coil height— if out of whack somewhat, this could drive ferrous number of what Etrac provides  hence higher ferrous number reporting could be had hence if ferrous number is high enough user will get a lower tone vs higher tone and user will keep walking.
