    Come to think of it, I don't know which mine is. Does it matter?

    Are you sure it’s a stock shaft?

    I've had 2 with the matte black, my new one is gloss and so is my hunting partner's.

    Interesting Dan, I've always just wondered the reasoning. Maybe Minelab will see this and answer, Or I'll email them.

    When did you get your 800? My guess would be that one is the newer shaft which was supposed to fix the wobble problem.
