No More Broken Arm Cuffs


Recommended Posts

Broke my Nox arm cuff the other day. I got ahold of a new one and modified it so it is now stronger than ever. I took a piece of 4 inch PVC pipe, ( just the right width! ), cut it to the width of the cuff and just below where the strap openings are. Did a little sanding to "round" off the edges and attached it with industrial 3M two face tape to the cuff. Then put the black cushion rubber on top. I have used it about 6 hours now of constant swinging and it is rock solid. $1.98 for the PVC and a little modification. We'll see how it holds up.

Good idea, I like a solid firm arm cuff, I really get annoyed by flexible arm cuffs for some reason 🙂

I also love your little pooch in the photo's background 🙂

Really nice job, OkaraGold.  That looks terrific, and strong, too...

Hey steveg… I appreciate your earlier information on a new cuff but as you can see I tried a do-it-yourself fix. Thanks for the great CF shaft. Also...  The P.O. is still looking for the missing counter weight. I guess when "it" freezes over the weight might be found. LOL Thanks Bob K

Bob -- that is just unbelievable!  LOL!  I am sure they are diligently at work, searching for it...a year later...  LOL!

(Meanwhile, glad you are still enjoying the shaft!)

      good morning and happy new year to all!!
      I'm sure this question has been asked many times in the past, but I was hoping someone could refresh mu memory. I'm currently swinging a gpx 5000 with a commander 15 x 12 mono coil -- ( old school). I wear out the covers a lot and have had problems getting new ones recently---so question is whats the best way to get the most from my covers??? I 've heard truck beeding stuff works good --- make a new bottom from fiberglass --- or ????
      Thanks all good luck

      Wanted to give the Multi Kruzer a go with the Superfly coil at the beach. Kept the machine in 5khz, manual ground balance as it would drift with tracking on. Was a little bit noisier in spots compared to the stock but on the damn and dry sand it had excellent depth with very stable numbers. Gain was kept around 93 without issue even in the wet.
      One thing I didn't like is if I got any water behind the scuff it would false a bit but outside of that its a good combo.
      Managed to sneak out a Barber dime at 10" in the damp sand in my my 3 hour run, called it a day when I broke my scoop handle.

      I’m surprised I have not seen much chatter on this mod but it seems pretty well done. He has same mod for the Vanquish and maybe the CTX

      Not something I’d do under warranty but maybe after warranty was up?  Or buy a $200 Vanquish or used one and this kit?  
       
      I think the kits are under $300 and I think that includes the headphones?  Heck the waterproof headphones are half that price. Wish I knew Russian...

      How can I prevent my headphone jack from further corrosion?
       
      A little back story. 
      I'm submerging my equinox 800 about 2-3 times per week in saltwater (Florida gulf coast).  
      Purchased the LS PELSO headphones October 11th (1 week shipping) and as you can see they have already started to corrode. 
      I don't take the headphones out and wash the jack EVERYTIME. (Trying to avoid this)
      Please leave a comment, let me know what you do, and what you think will work for me! 
      Thanks

      Well I have now gone through a second GPZ stock coil cover. Has anyone tried out the Nugget Finder coil cover for the 14x13 and if so how have you liked it? I am either looking at one of these or somehow modifying my stock cover to extend the life. If the stock covers were only $10 I could justify the reoccurring cost but at almost $50 ..not really.   Thanks
