Dealer Sale Steve's Custom Carbon-fiber Shafts For Minelab Equinox!


Recommended Posts

THANKS, beatup, for the compliments!  I am glad you are enjoying the shaft -- and glad you mentioned the cam lock in particular.  That was a MAJOR focus of the design, and probably THE key component that I knew I needed to "get right," in order to achieve all of the improvements I was seeking to make (as compared to the stock shaft).  Customers seem to really like the cam lock design I settled on, and I'm really glad my focus there, during the design stage, seems to have turned out to be a success!

Thank you!

I really like not only the colors but the exterior finish on your rods beats all the others hands down. Perfect mirror smooth finish instead of textured. Nice!

Steve,

The complete rod, counterbalance and Herke arm cuff all arrived.  Love the workmanship and feel. Exceptional. I had a chance to take my 800 out with the 11" coil.  Such nice balance. Cudos.  The factory rod and cuff are back in the original box and will stay there. 

Thanks for taking the time and effort to put together a very exceptional after-market search rod. 

Regards,

UtahRich -

Rich -- THANK you for the feedback, and the kind words!  I love it that you are pleased with the feel, and the build.  Sounds like the counterweight is doing what is intended -- giving you better balance.  SUPER!

I'm glad to have helped!

Steve

Herke arm cuff?

Yes, sir -- I have Herke arm cuffs for sale.  Is that something you are interested in, or need some more information about?

Thanks!

DigsAlot -- understood.

The cuffs are made by Jeff Herke (hence the name), and Jeff has been making that cuff for various different machines, for many years.  The one which I offer, for my Equinox shafts, is the same design as the ones he offers for various other machines; the only difference amongst all of his cuffs, is that he slightly alters the sizing at the connection point, to fit the different models of shafts he designs them for. 

The cuffs are black powder-coated aluminum, and thus can be bent slightly to fit your forearm.  There is also an optional, padded neoprene cover which can be purchased; overall, it's a very heavy-duty, comfortable cuff, that some people really like.

Thanks!

Steve

Super excited!

I'll give a full report in a different thread when I get everything mounted and have a few swings in.

      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.

      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

      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.
       


      Thanks!

      Steve
