    Received mine today. I had mine made a little longer. It came wrapped in the perfect box with excellent packing. Iíll be in the water tomorrow with it and will provide feedback on how the extra length performed in the water.

    If you don't look for it you won't find it!! So get out there and dig it.

    Went detecting for the day at the beach with the Equinox using the lower rod that Steve made for me. The rod is 3 inches longer than the standard Equinox rod. It is longer in length than my Excal rods to give you an idea of how it looks. I am referring to Anderson and Plugger shafts that i use with my two Excal's. The extra length 28 inches allows me to have an extra 3 inch reach. There was no difference in balance, and no difference in swinging the Equinox in the water. The rod is well made and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a little extra reach.
    Here is a few photos of my finds from the other day. Found a silver broken chain and a few junk rings.

    Phil and Tom --

    THANKS for your interest! I have you both added to the list, for a "standard" rod. I'll have the rods assembled and ready to ship within the next week! I'll be in touch with you both, when I have a rod boxed up and ready for you...

    slider66 --

    THANKS for the kind words -- really glad you are happy with the rod, and that the extra length is working well for you! Nice finds, as well! I need to get back to the beach again!

    Thank you all!

    I just swapped out the original rod for the new one. WOW! The slight wobble I had with the old one is gone! And the new one is really, really well made and looks awesome.

    Great work Steve. Thank you!

    Tom,

    Thanks for the kind words -- I'm really glad that you are pleased with the rod, and that it has helped to minimize the wobble you were experiencing. I try to keep my suppliers working to very tight "tolerances," including on the outide diameters of the carbon-fiber tubes, and that in conjunction with that little bit of extra length I include on the end of my "standard" rod is intended to help out a bit with respect to "wobble" issues that some might be experiencing with their stock lower rod, at that lower twist-lock connection. I'm glad it has helped, in your case!

    THANKS!

    The lower rod ordered from Steve arrived today. Fit, finish and over all quality are top notch! (The glossy carbon fiber looks way cool too) Highly recommended!

    If you are swinging the Equinox with the stock lower rod, you need one of these.

    THANKS for the kind words, Mark! Very much appreciated, and I'm thrilled that you are pleased!

    I have both EQX and CTX shafts in stock, if anyone needs one.

    Also, stay tuned over the next 1-2 weeks, for some news on the long-anticipated "complete carbon-fiber shaft" for the Equinox...

    Can you put me in for a lower rod as well? I'd like to connect it to the 11" and use the stock on the 6"? PM me where to paypal the money.

    I installed Steve's lower rod on my new 12 X 15" coil and it works great! Fits like a glove, no wobble, and nice quality. Thanks Steve!
