Hi, all!

I just wanted to mention that in the spirit of the Holidays, Steve's Detector Rods will be giving away one carbon-fiber complete Equinox shaft (upper shaft and lower rod), AND one carbon-fiber Equinox lower rod, to two lucky U.S. winners.  Two separate drawings will be held on Dec. 18, one for the complete shaft, and a second for the lower rod.  Entry into the drawings is completely free, with no purchase required -- and the entry period is open from now, through 11:59 PM on Sunday, Dec. 15.  Additionally, ALL entrants into either drawing will qualify to receive 10% off of any item purchased through Steve's, for the entire month of December.  For additional information, including details and eligibility, please visit Steve's Facebook page, at https://www.facebook.com/stevesdetectorrods

Thanks!

Steve

      Hey gang,

      How many of you have old or extra lower rod to an SD/GP/GPX Excalibur, Sovereign laying around?

      The reason I ask is because I am getting a lot of interest in the SAGA™ from overseas, especially AUSTRALIA.  however, the big bug-a-boo, is the cost of shipping.

      Because the package is over 24 inches long the postal service charges an enormous surcharge.  Shipping for one SAGA rod is literally $66.  I about choked.

      Now it just so happens, I was thinking ahead on this issue, and I made the SAGA so it would also use a spare fiberglass rod from an SD/GP/GPX Excalibur Sovereign etc.  It fits perfectly.  If an international customer could supply their own rod, I could just send a parts bag including a 1 ounce tube of Silicone sealant to glue the handle on and shipping would only be $32. USD.  And get this, if a customer ordered two parts packages, the shipping would still only be $32 shipping for two packages.  So if you had a mate that wanted a SAGA, you could share the cost of shipping.

      The only thing the customer would have to do is cut off the head of the rod they have where it attaches to the coil.  The other end has the adjustment button which on most if not all Minelab lower rods is metal.  That's not good because that adjustment button end is the part that goes into the SAGA pivot joint close to the coil.  However, I would just include a plastic button to replace the Minelab metal button.

      So bottom line is I wonder how many people have those extra lower rods laying around or how readily available they are and if offering that option of the parts bag would be more attractive for an international customers than paying $66 for shipping?  I know I wouldn't pay $66 USD for shipping.

      Actually the same goes for U.S. it cuts shipping from around $12 on a package going to New York to about $6, by eliminating the rod.  It only makes sense if you have an extra rod laying around, if you have to buy a rod especially for that reason Minelab charges $42 for a lower fiberglass rod.

      Really interested in hearing from forum members in Australia.

      On the TDI Pro the upper handle was a bolt on assembly with separate part numbers The prototype models has a straight shaft, and the production models an S shaft. In either case you could remove the handle via four bolts to hip or chest mount the control box.


      Since the production models went S shaft, there were aftermarket straight shafts. Here is the Anderson aftermarket straight shaft  for the TDI Pro:
      https://www.seriousdetecting.com/product/anderson-whites-tdi-metal-detector-black-carbon-fiber-shaft/

      Does anyone have any part numbers for the original TDI upper handle?
      The SL models the handle does not normally separate (attaches from inside the control box) and so only White’s or White’s dealers would have access to the part number for the upper straight shaft or S shaft.


      The straight middle shaft 500-0288-1 or S shaft 802-5213 is standard on many whites detectors, and there is a “tall man” version 500-0240-1 of the S shaft.
      Does anyone know or have access to part numbers for the handle on the TDI SL, either straight or S shaft?
      The TDI Beachunter uses a removable shaft that can probably be retrofitted to the SL models with some drilling.

       
      This appears to be the White’s Diver Rod Kit, part # 802-5195-1, with straight middle shaft 500-0288-1 added, and may retrofit to the SL with some drilling.

      White’s Diver Rod Kit
      One of the best deals going in a rod assembly for years has been the Whites Space Saver Rod Kit for Classics and Early Goldmaster models, part number 802-5236. This may also retrofit the the SL and is in any case a good way to get some Whites Rod parts cheap. While they last.

      White’s Space Saver Rod Kit
      If anyone has any information they can add about any TDI model rod or shaft parts, now would be a great time to archive it while it’s still halfway easy to track down.

      If you think the SAGA™ is just a Swing Arm, it's not.  It's a steering wheel for your detector.  Start at the 3-minute mark on the video, and watch what the unique design of the SAGA can make your detector do.  If you know of any device on the market that gives you this kind of control please let me know, because I know of nothing that even comes close.  If what you see intrigues you then watch the entire video.  You're going to find that the SAGA will make detecting much easier and less stressful on your body and give you control over your detector you have never had before. - Doc

      There is a thread about this over on Dankowski. After having some muck slung at me by someone over there, who, among other things accused Fisher and me of palming a “Prototype” off on the public.

      This is odd. I just tripped over this clicking on the FT logo at the bottom of the Fisher Labs website. It looks new, but has a 2013 copyright date on it, and has models listed for sale that are now longer current.
      https://detecting.com/store/index.php/
      It is basically a First Texas online store, with all three brands listed - Bounty Hunter, Fisher, and Teknetics
