    Yes it actually did, but with all the coral I really did not need it at either Port.

    Here's my travel setup on my last trip. The old thrift store, $3 Samsonite suitcase from the '60's easily handled my detector, sand scoop, my "finds" bag, pro pointer, sifter and plenty of room for rolled up clothes. Having my at pro user guide book on top helped get through security getting on the cruise ship. I had to call a supervisor over once about the sand scoop telling them I had 0 items on their "prohibited" list. They questioned the sand scoop, but talked my way into keeping it.Click image for larger version.

    Does anyone make a carbon fiber shaft that will break down to fit into airline luggage? I use a straight " Anderson " with the Xcall and can't figure a way to pack it. If not what is next best option?

    I love the rain. A day without rain is like a day without sunshine I always say.

    Yes, I believe they do. I have seen one in a post but I do not know where. Google search it. Good luck!

    I found it beneficial to call the airline you will be using. For instance, I recently flew Frontier Airlines and they REQUIRED my Equinox 800 to be in Checked luggage. They do not allow such devices as a carry on. Just their lithium battery policy. So glad I called 1st to avoid a hassle at the airport.

    ANDERSON CAN CUSTOM MAKE RODS I THINK - I TALKED TO GUY THEIR FEW YRS BACK AND HE SAID TELL THEM WHAT I WANT - I HAVE SEEN BREAK DOWN MODELS FOR A FEW MACHINES BUT DONT KNOW IF THEY HAVE THEM IN NORMAL STOCK FOR WHAT YOU NEED
    i HAD SAME PROB AS YOU - I BOUGHT THE LONGEST STRAIGHT ONE ANDERSON MADE AND IT ENDED UP BEING 6INS TOO
    LONG FOR MY BIGGEST SUIT CASE - I ENDED UP PUTTING IT IN ITS ORIGINAL BOX AND PAID FOR IT AS EXTRA LUGGAGE ONE TIME
    ANOTHER TIME I MAILED TO HOTEL --I GOT A TRIP COMING UP IN A WEEK AND GOT TO DECIDE WHAT IM GONNA DO THIS TIME
    Motto = "I try to hit where others cant or others wont "
