Dealer Sale Steve's Two-piece Carbon-fiber Lower Shafts For Garrett AT And Ace-series (both Black And Colored Options) Now Available!


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Just a quick note to say that I have a full supply of carbon-fiber tubes -- in several different colors -- in stock, and ready for building Garrett AT- and ACE-series shafts.  If you have interest in a new shaft, for your AT- or ACE-series machine (and soon, the APEX model), I'd be happy to build one, to your liking.

Thanks!

Steve

Hi all!

Premium-quality, carbon-fiber two-piece lower shafts are now available for Garrett's AT- and ACE-series detectors (as well as the GTI and GTAx), from Steve's Detector Rods.  The lower rod section is fully telescopic within the middle shaft, via one of my heavy-duty, clamp-type cam locks.  Similar to my Equinox shafts, the adjustment holes found on Garrett's stock "middle" shaft section (and the spring button pin on the lower rod) have been eliminated, which results in quick, easy insertion and adjustment of the lower rod, as well as unlimited options for adjustment length (as opposed to lengths being restricted by fixed button-hole locations).  The shafts also offer weight reduction -- with these being 20% lighter than the stock shaft (5 oz. vs. 6.1 oz.).  While these shafts have not uploaded to the website yet, special introductory pricing is as follows:

$70 shipped -- black two-piece carbon-fiber lower shaft

$80 shipped -- colored two-piece carbon-fiber lower shaft

The initial, trail batch of these shafts is now sold out (as of 2-4-20), but a large parts order has been placed, for a much larger production run.  If interested, please contact me (either via PM here on the forum, or via email at steve@stevesdetectorrods.com), as I'm currently compiling a wait list.

THANKS!

Steve

I have the one pictured. Best rod ever. Will need another when the new Apex arrives. Hope it's a match.

George -- THANKS for the kind words, and yes, I do believe the shafts will be compatible with the Apex.  

Thank you sir!

You have a setup for the SeaHunter? I mount the control box below just before the arm cuff.

kac -- 

I just saw your message; I'm sorry to say that no, I don't have a shaft design for the SeaHunter.  I've had a couple of folks ask about this recently, but it's not a machine that I'm currently producing a shaft for.  S-shafts are much more difficult to produce, as an s-bend carbon-fiber tube requires a custom mold, and the cost of such a mold is quite high, from the carbon-fiber tube companies I work with.  So, it's a challenge, from a financial perspective...

My apologies,

Steve

Hi all!

Just wanted to refresh my post, and "bump" it back up; I have plenty of AT/Ace two-piece shafts in stock, in a variety of colors.  Send me a PM or email, if you are interested in a purchase.

(Equinox complete shafts, and CTX 3030 lower rods are also in stock in a variety of colors, as are tubes to custom-build Excal or Sovereign shafts, and I am also now building carbon-fiber sand-scoop handles for several brands of sand scoops!)

THANKS!

Hi all!

I just wanted to say that I have plenty of Garrett AT/Ace/Apex shafts in stock, and ready to ship; I also have a couple of new colors available in limited supply -- a yellow/gold color (that was selected due to the new Apex's color scheme), and pink ones, as I've received several requests from a few detectorists of the "fairer sex," LOL!

If you need a two-piece lower shaft for your Garrett unit, I would be glad to set you up!

(Oh, and just a peek "behind the curtain," I'm in the process of working up a prototype UPPER shaft (S-shaft) for the Garrett units, so that I could offer a complete Garrett shaft, and even a counterweight with it, for anyone that might be interested...stay tuned!)

Thanks!

Steve

      As a dealer, I have taken many detectors in trade and with the new GPX-6000 coming soon, I'll probably be taking more gold detectors in trade from my 25 yrs of customers.  Here are some parts I figured is time to start clear up.  I have a variety of Upper and or S rods for different models of detectors.  Many folks use S rods for better ergonomics.  Some folks have worn out there old rod and need a new one.  Others just might want an extra one to look good when they trade their detector?
      I'm asking $35 shipped no tax for 1, $60 shipped no tax for 2, $85 shipped no tax for 3, $100 shipped for 4, or $120 for 5, or $150 shipped for all.

       
      Anyone looking for the black metal upper straight shaft for Minelab GP/GPX, I have some.    Also have non metal lower shafts of a variety lengths for the GP/GPX.
      Even have a few non metal carbon fiber upper shafts for GP/GPX (those were my favorite) as they are lighter and no metal.
      Have a few swing arms in the stash as well.

      As a longtime follower of Detector Prospector and active member sharing stories/finds/knowledge, I might as well start taking Pre Orders and give those who are new to the game, a name/place you can have confidence in dealing with.  We all sell at the same price as Amazon, but a few of us like Rob, Doc and myself offers what mail order and eBay do not.  I don't care if you get free stuff, it won't make you a better gold hunter.  
      Those of you know don't know me just Google Search www.gerrysdetectors.com and you'll learn plenty.  What separates my Field Staff and I from other dealers, is the knowledge we earn while in the field and share at the Field Training Sessions we provide.  I've been using/selling Minelab detectors for 20+ yrs and what keeps me going is passion.  Some have read of my adventures to Alaska, England, Australia, Italy, Bahamas, Mexico and all over the US as Metal Detecting is me.
      I'm a US Marine VET myself so if you are a VET, I'll be happy to offer the full 15% discount for the new GPX-6000.
      You want to see some success videos or my Field Staff Experts and I sharing knowledge, go to the videos on my website www.gerrysdetector.com
      Is the GPX-6000 the detector for you?  How about a GPZ-7000 or SDC-2300 and what are the differences?  For some, why should you maybe start out with an Equinox 800 or Gold Monster 1000?  Lets have that conversation and find out before you pull the trigger.
      I don't have a regular job and sell detectors on the side, my only income is selling detectors, adventures and helping fulfill dreams.
      Call me up, lets talk and if we think the GPX-6000 is for you, I'll put your name on the list.  If you feel any other gold detector is in your eyesight, lets talk about it and compare the Pros/Cons of each.  After all, I sell near 200 different models of detectors.

      DETacc Super Sound Signal Enhancer.

      Left one fits all SD-2100 and 2200 series, GP-Extreme, GP-3000, GP-3500 series. It will work on GPX models, but you need to purchase the adapter plugs for the 4000 and 4500. Easy to use and operate with only one knob, used for Volume Control. Retailed for $175 and you get it for $55 shipped.
      Right one will go to the newer GPX series, including the GPX-4000, GPX-4800, GPX-5000.  It's the 5 pin were as the older version SD/GP is the 4 Pin.  I want $65 shipped.
      I'm very well known on DP.  Call Gerry at www.gerrysdetectors.com

      Greetings!

      This complete, high-quality, lightweight shaft system for the Equinox consists of:

      1). A 35 1/2" long carbon-fiber upper shaft, with four cuff adjustment holes, and one hole for the control-box handle (located in the same positions as on the Minelab upper shaft section). This upper shaft replaces -- as a one-piece section -- both the middle and upper sections of the stock Minelab shaft;

      2). A 26" long carbon-fiber lower rod, including spring-button clip (the same lower rods I've been selling for several months).

      The following pricing applies to several basic shaft options...

      1. Upper shaft section ONLY (no lower rod), regular end cap … $79 plus shipping

      2. Upper shaft section ONLY (no lower rod), threaded butt-end and threaded end cap (to allow compatibility with the threaded counterweight system) ... $89 plus shipping

      3. COMPLETE shaft system (upper shaft section PLUS 26" lower rod), regular end cap ... $129 plus shipping

      4. COMPLETE shaft system (upper shaft section PLUS 26" lower rod), threaded butt-end and threaded end cap (to allow compatibiility with the threaded counterweight system) ... $139 plus shipping.


      All of the above shafts can be customized in various ways, per customer preference (rod length, hole locations, etc.) Optional spring button holes (to facilitate use of the lower rod spring button) can also be included in any of the upper shaft options above, for an additional $10 (the button holes are not REQUIRED, on my shaft, due to the strong/secure clamping cam lock system that is used with these shafts, but are available as an optional inclusion).

      As alluded to above, an optional counterweighting system is also available for these shafts, to alleviate the "nose-heaviness" many Equinox users have noticed. The counterweight -- short-lengths of carbon-fiber tube, filled with small bags of lead pellets, and which screw into a threaded insert in the butt-end of the shaft -- can either be packaged with a shaft system, or purchased separately later, as an add-on accessory. The tubes are custom-built to each user's desired weight/length, and additionally, the weight of the tube can be adjusted at any time, via access to the internal weighting through a threaded end cap.

      Empty counterweight tubes (with the customer supplying the weighting) ... $35 plus shipping

      Weighted counterweight tubes (built to customer specification) ... $45 plus shipping

      Finally, I have created several documents to provide more detailed information regarding the shaft system itself, including counterweighting and how to choose the right weight for your situation, the "button holes vs. no button holes" decision, etc. I can provide these documents to anyone who requests them, and I am of course more than happy to answer any questions you may have -- either here, or via my email address, at steve@stevesdetectorrods.com.

      After an extended period of working to design a superior shaft system, and extensive field testing, I believe that my goal for this complete shaft system has been achieved -- with these shafts providing a high-quality, wobble-free, ergonomically balanced, aesthetically enhanced upgrade to your Minelab Equinox!

      Thanks!

      Steve
