The two part construction is both strong and light while being easily adjustable. It has all the holes for adjusting the arm cup and total length from the original three piece shaft but will fold much shorter while fully assembled by retracting the lower stem almost fully into the upper.
Adjustments to the lower stem is made simple by our own quick release, lever cam-lock made from tough light nylon and a no-nonsense one-piece stainless steel button clip. The cam-lock has been specially designed to be compatible with standard Minelab spare parts. In the event of wear the lever, pivot pin and press block may be replaced with those from the Minelab E-Trac and Safari cam-locks, giving you peace of mind that spares are available from Minelab outlets.
Our prototype design has been field tested with the 15" coil (EQX15) to ensure the cam-lock and button clip gives a firm hold free from anywobble.
Both parts are compatible and interchangeable with the standard Minelab Equinox shafts allowing you to swap and change parts at your convenience, for example a spare lower may be used to hold an accessory coil for quick change over.
