The Pad on the arm cuff is now "twice" as thick and it is also removeable, reversible and washable. Other lengths available on request. Important note: The first two lengths of this shaft, when assembled are 33" from the tip of the shaft lock to the back of the arm cuff, 6" (almost 7) longer than the stock "S" shaft that comes with a new detector.
Please keep this in mind as you try to figure out the proper length shaft for you. If you are short, say 5"-2" or so, you may want a shorter length. Now comes with my new Shaft Lock on the lower end and the middle joint for even better stability and is a lot less susceptible to sand & salt corruption (does not have a cam to get crapped up) and much less likely to seize up. Also, you may have your choice of all Black Nylon Bolts, all s/s Snap Buttons or 2 bolts & & one snap button for the battery pod.Please check out my other listings too.
