Clive have you considered selling them in a 3-pack bundled together with a bundle price?

I discount the shipping on multi book orders--but that's a great idea.  Have to be careful not to undersell my dealers though. 

Regards clive

Clive,  I have all three of these. I'm an RF engineer who hasn't had my hands on a detector since about the era that discrimination was becoming popular. I found the books to be very helpful in helping me to wrap my head around the complexities of what the ML is bringing to the table with the Equinox. I believe that in order to actualize much more than waving a beepy stick above the ground, it's pretty critical to really understand what the knobs do and further what negative effects they can cause in the greater scheme of things.  Your books go a long way in ferreting out that detail.

Thankfully,  ML has done an excellent job of setting up initial operational profiles that work well and generally don't require much fine tuning.  You info in the books help to guide the user down the path between fine tuning and detuning. In my opinion, Worth every penny.

Good work sir.

Thanks, Phillips.  Fine tuning and de-tuning--well said...!  It is possible to become pretty accurate with the NOX thouugh--just takes some understanding of what detectors do. Not that keen on the presets though just find that five tone to be weak sounding. 

Thanks for your interest in my books--glad they have helped you. cjc

      Sad for me because into the future I just can't attempt the rough-terrain favorite Relic Hunting Ghost Town sites. This is my 'original' FORS CoRe that I received January 8th of 2015 and got me hooked on the Nokta and Makro product line. I call it 'custom' for the following reasons:

      • By design, the FORS 'series' are longer-lengths when the rods are as short-as-they-go and I had two vehicles where they wouldn't lay down o the back seat, door-to-door, even at their shortest extension. So I had the middle-rod and lower-rod professionally shortened, just a little, to make them functional. No issues on length extension for daily use.

      • The upper and middle rods were stripped and powder-coated what is called 'Edge Red' which gives the CoRe an attractive, eye-catching appearance.

      The FORS CoRe comes with the 'standard' 7X11 DD, I have not used, and the only coil I have used on it is the small 4.7X5.2 'OOR' DD coil. This is the white-colored version, for the CoRe or Gold models, and since I work coils in and around a lot of debris and under brush I like a white coil to more visually track when I am working it. It is naturally in beautiful condition ... PLUS ... I have another new, white-colored 'OOR' DD I will include for the CoRe! Hard to find so it's worth its weight!

      Also, it has the Hand-Grip and Control-Housing Environmental Covers, and I am including a spare lower-rod and a few Nut & Bolt & Washer sets.

      $375 ... Nokta FORS CoRe w/'standard' 7X11 DD, one kindly-used and one new 'OOR' coils, both white-colored, a spare lower rod, Environmental Covers sand misc.

      Free Shipping in lower 48!

      Hi all!

      I would like to remind those of you in the market for a high-quality, heavy duty carbon-fiber sand scoop handle that I'm now branching out with my company into producing these handles.  While they are not up on my webpage as of yet, I do offer handles for T-Rex scoops, and have just begun offering handles for Xtreme and Stealth scoops (including marine-grade stainless steel threaded insert, bolt, and washer for attachment to the Xtreme and Stealth scoops).  I also have word from Nokta, regarding handle diameter dimensions compatible with their brand-new sand scoops, and can now confirm that I can offer handles for these Nokta scoops as well.  Finally, I have also done a few handles for customers who own other brands of scoops, on a special-order basis.  So, if you are in the market for a great carbon-fiber scoop handle, please contact me either here, or via email at steve@stevesdetectorrods.com, and I'll work to provide you with the handle you need.

Each comes with a brand new coil cover, personally autographed copy of my book "Advanced Nuggetshooting with the Goldmaster 24K," and my optimal tuning cheat sheet.

      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) ... $25 plus shipping

      Weighted counterweight tubes (built to customer specification) ... $35 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!
