    AT-Pro Winter Project

    Bought an AT-Pro as a spare land/water machine for myself, friends & family. Noticed it was a little front heavy so I did this quick mod the other day to improve the balance. (Get you a picture as soon as it will let me upload one to the page.....lol)

    That's very interesting to me. How's it feel now with that mod?

    I guess after swinging an 8 pound machine these super light machines (at pro is 3.5 lbs) just don't seem to be a problem for me.
    Have you tried swinging that in the water?

    Looks pretty good, but I think it would be to short for me, but I like the new configuration. This is a mod that helps stabilize the control box that I did here is the link to it it's on Tnet.AT gold and Pro mod

    I swing an Excal all day long, frequently with a 15" coil, so weight alone wasn't an issue. I just didn't like the weight forward feel of the thing.

    I'm thinking about bringing the control box above the wrist/forearm area. This was just a quick mod, a starting point to see how the balance changed. If I bring the box above the wrist/forearm area it should also further reduce the swing radius in the water which should further reduce arm/wrist fatigue and fatigue on those mounts. So another winter project to play with....lol

    I still need to fit the box to the top of the handle on this new prototype but this adjustment really balanced things out well. The control box is above the wrist now, which I really like. So we'll keep playing with things while the snow is flying, see what we end up with?.....lol

    If you figure out a good light set up show that also, I end up hunting late and I wish the screen was backlit or Garrett would come out with something to light these older models, some kind of upgrade.
