    Love my new strap

    Got me a shoulder strap. Love it for not what you would think. Sure it makes me look cool and sexy and yes it does make it great to take some of the strain off my shoulder. But the real reason I love this strap is because it holds my MD when I am digging and shaking with my beach scoop. I was getting easily frustrated dealing with my MD while trying to dig things up as it would fall or be in the way. Now I just pull my arm out of the forearm rest and it conveniently just swings to my back. Works great when I am digging in the surf and the waves are beating me to death.

    That’s awesome! I just got the Limbsaver Comfort-Tech 24501 Metal Detector Sling, Black from amazon.
    I added an 11” bungee to make it float:

    This strap has turned out to be a great strap compared to the others I have tried. The bungee that I added after taking off the short strap that connects to the detector, gives the detector more swing reach as I swing it the right. Plus it floats the coil better at just the right height.
    Good luck!

    I will have to try that. I tend to push down on my detector with the strap to push it out far enough to swing it. If it hangs naturally then I am detecting the tops of my shoes.

    Same here! So I took off the short strap off and added one of these 11” Bungees just below the controller on the handle:

    Awesome improvement in control.
    Good luck!

    I have the same shoulder strap and want to try the bungee setup, any pictures on how to attach to the detector and strap ring?

    Here’s what I did. I had an old detector strap that I took the swivel clip/hook and pinch adjuster off and used it on the 11” bungee. I removed the short web strap on the ring and clipped the plastic swivel onto the ring. And stretched the bungee over the controller and tightened up the cinch button as needed. You really don’t need the extra parts on the bungee but it helps. Here are the pics. Hope this helps and good luck!

    That helped a ton, thank you. I ordered the bungees two days ago and will be rigging it all up to my excal II next weekend.

    Strap worked great! They should make this standard. Mind you strap works great just as it is (for anyone reading this that is wondering if it is worth getting). I like that it keeps tension at all times with the bungee.

    I didn't find anything in Sebastian. It was cold, windy and the surf was brutal. Saw some dig holes so someone was there earlier. So I went where they weren't. Found some pull tabs a lure and a strange piece of metal that I can't tell what it is. Here is a shot of the beach.
