Equinox Golden Mask Shaft Conversion


Recommended Posts

Im curious how the twist locks hold up over time getting dirt and grit in them? I am debating this shaft or the other one out there with the cam lever locks made by Detecting Innovations? But I dont think the Detecting Innovations one will rotate when collapsed to allow it to all lay flat into a case because they have a groove in the shaft to eliminate any shaft twist?

The other benefit of the detecting innovations one is that it weighs a half pound lighter than the stock shaft. So im torn between the two but want to be able to put into a case for transport

I suppose you could just pull the lower shaft out and lay it alongside in the case

Sadly, the Golden Mask rod for the Equinox appears to have been discontinued. There was a late version made that came complete with all required Equinox mounting hardware, but now I can’t find it for sale anywhere.

I have made mine by buying an axis in ALIEXPRESS and bought them from the partner who makes them in a 3d printer
