Thought I'd post what I ended up doing. The telescopic shaft with shipping was to expensive for me to justify. But I did find a cheaper alternative which looks very similar. The Andoer C-555 carbon fiber monopod. Found one on EBay for $41 shipped from China. Ordered a few other parts here and there to modify. I' very happy with the results! I made a video of my process and include a parts list if anyone is interested. Cheers!

      It's a made up name which is a mash up of the words Quick, Bungee and Double (double adjustment point).  It describes another innovative product from Doc that makes detecting more enjoyable and helps save your arm, shoulder neck and back from undue stress.  Just add your own backpack or Hydration pack.

      This amazing Bungee Support System provides absolutely instantaneous adjustment so your detector is always at the proper height off the ground, even when you are in mid-swing.

      We use super strong Marine Grade bungee that is stronger than 3/8ths inch bungee that is commonly used for tie-downs.

      Could someone who has one of these please tell me how long the bungee is?
      I’m wanting to find a bungee in the states that has enough length to attach it to the lower shaft of the GPZ 7000.  I’ve seen that this is how some of the ozzies are holding up the 19” coil and would like to try this.
      Any ideas?
      Thanks guys!

      I have been searching this site as well as others for one simple question and can't seem to find the answer. Will this harness fit fat guys. I mean I am 5'11 and 275 pounds. Will the hip straps adjust enough for us bigger guys? I would like to buy one as my arm has been taken a beating.

      Its a silly question but I am curious to know how many use a bungee or other support system while out bush or even in a park?
       
      I use just a standard harness and bungee pretty exclusively as it reduces wear and tear on my person   The advent of the Zed kinda makes it imperative to me now.   I gain extra control of my coil, regardless of the machine, and I don't have to worry about dropping it to take a break~ or that someone will try to grab and run with it. 
      Silly question but I'm curious to ask.

      I tried a couple of methods to balance and hang the detector from my harness and hipstick. These pics show clearly how I did it. Attaching the bottom of Doc's bungy on the right and then bringing the top connector through a d-ring on the left does a few things. This attachment helps eleviate some of the twist that the detector wants to do, it keeps the bungy in line for maximum lift and control, you can turn the detector loose and it won't fall to the ground and it makes swinging the detector very easy on worn-out wrists and elbows. Also, it keeps the bungy up and away from my fairly large hands...comfort and convenience thanks to the Hip-stick, Doc's Bungy and a little modification by me...

      Not ever been a user of a heavy detector, I didn't have to use any support system but wished I had when using a large coil. Now with the ZED I can't detect with out a bungee being attached to a harness or a Hip Stick. Even a bungee has a learning curve. The habit that I got into was to disconnect it from the machine, as it was always out of the way and I could grab the eye and attach it to the detector with out looking. One problem, I didn't always get the right end, then reversing it and readjusting it was taking away from detecting time. My cure, take some electrical tape and close the adjusting end of the bungee.                                                                                  Norm
