As many beach hunters know, the cam used with these twist locks can get "crapped up" by a mixture of salt water and sand and it is almost like glue when it dries out. Because the new shaft lock does not use a cam, there is less chance of the lower rod getting stuck in the lower shaft. Everyone knows we should clean our equipment after every use, but, do we really? I know, I forget to do it now and then. At the very least, the rod is easier to remove from the shaft without the sticky cam.
The handle is adjustable and the heavy duty, black, powder coated, aluminum arm cuff comes with a strap and removable pad (pad is reversible and washable). The 2 stainless steel bolts that attach the arm cuff to the shaft also hold the extension in place when you are using the Excal on the shaft (very solid setup).
