Dealer Sale Variety Of Upper & Mid S Rods For Minelab, Garrett, Fisher (updated Photo & Price)


Recommended Posts

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.

6th one from the bottom a Garrett? Will it fit my Seahunter? Plan on using the SH armcuff I got and will mount the box under the arm.

6th from bottom is an older model Minelab long 1 piece S shaft.  Most lower rods that attach to coils will slide up and lock into place.  You'll need to drill a couple holes into the upper part of the rod to attach your arm cuff.

Actually if you plan on hip mounting your Sea Hunter, any shaft with arm cuff and lower rod that attaches to coil should work.  Are you going to take your arm cuff off the original shaft or purchase a used one that has arm cuff on it?

Let me know if you need to see any close up pics of anything.

If anyone else has modified (hip/chest mounted) their Garrett please chime in.

Of course the lower shaft of the SH doesn't fit, it is 0.026" too big.

What is the width of the connector from a ML shaft where it connects to the coil? I think the Tesoro lower shaft may fit as well but in either case I may have to either machine them or make a custom bushing. No biggie just looking for least work possible.

Thanks

Big thanks Gerry!

Here is pics of my now Minelab/Nokta/Garrett shaft for my SeaHunter.

Much lighter, balances just slightly nose heavy which is perfect for in the water. Stock shaft was off a bit and the larger coil would rise. Foam grip should be bit warmer in the winter and yes no wobble.

Happy happy happy! :)

Glad you were able to get it to work right for you.  I'm actually surprised more folks were not interested in converting some of their heavy detectors.

Heck, Maybe must of them are swinging the NOX?

Thanks for letting us see your new S rod design and supporting a Dealer who enjoys helping customers on this fine forum.

      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!

      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!
