  1. Steve, I did the same thing months ago... when I first started looking into the Golden Mask shafts... I got the same results. Now I have had quick responses in the past from him... but regarding this subject (Golden Mask shaft conversion kit)... not so much. Not implying anything, he’s always been a great guy... just, maybe, this project didn’t interest him. Gerry
  2. Geo, I haven’t corresponded with him lately... I’ve sent him a message about your issue... I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back from him. Gerry
  3. Thanks for the thought. I live in S. E. Michigan if you’re ever near the Detroit area drop me a line.
  4. Good deal. I’m glad you made it best for you. I did consider making an adapter for it (the original arm cuff) but after using it as it was, I skipped it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
  5. Sky355, Above I did the weight comparison between the standard shaft and the Golden Mask shaft.... the difference in weight was negligible... and it felt that way to me too before I weighed it. Check it out above... OOOPS maybe the previous page. Hope this helps, Gerry
  6. I looked it up. The Equinox weighs 2.9 lbs as originally equipped. The Minelab Equinox 800 on the "Golden Mask collapsible carbon fiber Equinox shaft" doing the conversion weighs 3.1125 lbs or rounding it to one decimal place... 3.1 lbs compared to an original/OEM shaft weight of 2.9 lbs. Gerry
  7. Cal, The weight of my Minelab Equinox 800 on the "Golden Mask collapsible carbon fiber Equinox shaft" with the 11" coil attached is 3 lb 1.8 oz. I weighed it 3 times same weight each time. Best of luck, Gerry
  8. Cal, Not at this time.... I'll get that for you tomorrow after work. Gerry
  9. Cal, i'd have to disassemble everything to do a comparison weight between the two... I should have maybe thought of doing that first off but I didn't. I can tell you, I, myself, didn't notice a discernible difference in weight between the two shafts. Gerry
  10. Taras, the seller of the Equinox to Golden Mask carbon fiber shaft kit. Sent me this link if you want to purchase the kit and send it to the U.S. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/173787937281?ul_noapp=true BE FOREWARNED THE IMAGE IN THE ABOVE SHORTCUT DOESN'T SHOW THE EQUINOX SET-UP, IT SHOWS THE Xterra SET-UP. If you want see the Equinox set-up... It's here: To clarify for those that still may be questioning what you get in the kit, here it is: You get everything: The Golden Mask collapsible carbon fiber shaft with cuff, The adapter w/all the hardware to mount your Equinox 600/800 control box/head unit/hand grip to the thicker Golden mask shaft Nylon coil bolt and rubber washers. (I just used my Minelab nylon bolt) Essentially... the only thing you need is a Minelab Equinox 600 or 800 and nothing else. Best of luck, Gerry
  11. Glad to help. I think you'll love it. It took a month for mine to arrive so be patient is my advice. Gerry
  12. I've been in touch with Taras the seller of the shaft on and off... I will send him a PM through eBay and see if I can get you all a direct way of ordering it. Gerry
  13. Sorry Sky for the slow response, had to take a family member to the hospital... the non-US shipments was new, but I knew that there were ways around that. It seems you got that worked out your own. Let me know how you like it... Best wishes, Gerry
  14. Here's one of my videos showing my Ebay purchased, Minelab Equinox to Golden Mask collapsible carbon fiber shafts: The seller's information is also included in a couple of different links. Have any questions, ask, I'll be glad to help. Gerry
