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 ?

      Hey All,
         A partner and I managed to escape this weekend to placer more of the wash we have been working.  We didn't do as well as we hoped, but did manage a few nuggets that you can see in the video below.  We were using the Minelab GPZ 7000 most of the time, but also had the GPX 5000 and Gold Monster on site.  We had several trash targets that were wedged in the bedrock cracks that we though were going to be gold nuggets.  Some of those targets were pick tips and pieces of old metal probably used as a tool to open up the bedrock.  
      Hope you enjoy the video.  We would love for you to Subscribe to our Youtube Channel by clicking the "Subscribe button," Hit that LIKE and follow all our new video by clicking that Bell icon.  
      Wishing you all many gold nuggets in your poke.

      Anyone have any insight on this new machine from Nokta? Saw it advertised on a internet discount detector sales site (guess.....yep that's the one), kind of looks like a "futuristic GB2". Man this company never sleeps.

      Hey Guys/Gals,
         A partner and I have been gold placering a wash for some time now in sections.  Every once in a great while, we find a nice crevice like this one with our metal detectors.  The old-timers couldn't get every crack or crevice, missing one here and there that might be rich in gold and gold nuggets.  We were using the Minelab GPZ 7000 and Minelab GPX 5000 metal detectors. 
      Hope you enjoy.
