When you are looking to use a metal detector, you must have parts and components that enable you to be more efficient. One crucial part of a metal detector that can optimise your performance is the detector shaft. The Detect-ed carbon fiber upper and lower shaft set for the Minelab Equinox 600 & 800 is a far superior upgrade to the original.

The Detect-Ed replacement carbon fiber shaft is lighter by up to 50% compared to other alternatives on the market. Being 100% carbon fiber it is much stronger and best of all has no wobble, which is the case with the original shaft.

The after-market carbon fiber shaft by Detect-Ed can be safely used in seawater and features a drainage hole from where water and sand can escape.

A custom coil connector reduces wear on the coil-ears, which has been known to snap using the standard configuration.
