    I tie a empty water bottle to give the controller some Buoyancy when I let go of the detector in the water...that way I do not need to bend
    over to grab it or stick my head under water when it sinks...the lanyard is one I made for my carrot. it helps when a wave were to sweep the detector out of my hand...I do the same thing for my long handle scoop.

    The only thing I do different from the video to make the coil is to squeeze eyelets on the ends...you can get them from Home Depot .
    in the electric dept. I also used a larger dowel diameter. If you are going to do the ends like in the video I recommend you stitch the para cord to give it more pulling strength.
    I have used this coil for years .it is compact and has saved me from loosing my gear many times.

    enjoy.

    Bottle isn't a bad idea. I just let my machine hang by the headphone cord and it hovers right by my side. Doesn't go anywhere, but I don't hunt in rough surf either.

    If you find the coiled lead to tight on your minelab waterproof headset(or any headset for that mater), just reverse the coil as described in the video posted above.
    It may not effect some people but for some a tight coil will always tug on the headset.

    enjoy

    Reading a manual can make you look real smart
    Not reading a manual...can just make you look not so smart.
    Telling people you can't read on a forum....just makes you look stupid.

    I find lots... for me this hobby is like hunting or fishing, Not everyone is about the trophy. If I can't eat it, sell it or give it away....I leave it, or trash it.

    I’m from Louisiana I grew up hunting and fishing just wasn’t sure why you bought it up unless you where making a analogy. I was just asking where all your “fines” are with that killer “rig” you have set up on your Smart car. I was surprised you weren’t vegan
