    Steve,

    I just checked the link and its working fine. I'm using Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer, the issue maybe with the type of software they're using, something other than Microsoft or it could be a web browser issue. I know when I go to our "Louisiana Employee's Online" website to do my yearly testing, it will not work properly with any other web browser other than Internet Explorer... JMO

    Yep, Possumcop, I'm thinking it's software-related, but it sure seems odd...

    Now THAT is interesting, Foggynotion. When using the TNet android app, and you say "the link doesn't work," are you getting that "White's" information or whatever, that some others described?

    What do you make of this, Treasure_Hunter? Anything? Not that it's a big deal in my particular case, but it sounds like it may be an issue with the T-Net android app?

    If you mean your using the TreasureNet app, it is no longer supported, hasn't been supported for long time. I recommend you download and use Tapatalk for Android or use the browser on your phone like it is a computer and access site as a pc.

    THANKS, Possumcop, for making the post; Treasure_Hunter, would it be possible to "undelete" his post? I never even saw it, before it was deleted. LOL!

    sonofadigger (and others), I have uploaded some pictures of the rods to an album here on the site...

    If anyone would like more info on these rods, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Any chance of doing a better designed E-Trac lower rod? Just thought I'd ask.

    Steve, seems like someone, not sure who it was, but he was just talking to you about making lower rod's for different machines I just can't remember who that person was... "D"

    Possumcop -- LOL! Not sure WHO that was...

    Gerry -- I am flattered that you'd ask.

    Truth is, I HAVE "thought" about it. But, I don't think I could do it the way I'd want.

    What I mean is -- my attitude toward anything I'd sell, is to offer HIGH quality at UNBEATABLE price. With Minelab's CTX rods priced as high as they are, there's a unique opportunity there for me to produce a high-quality rod, and do so at a price that is very competitive.

    When looking at the E-Trac/Explorer/Safari rods, though, there's a pretty "healthy" amount of rods available on the used market, usually selling for somewhere in the vicinity of $40. And there's no way I could source the parts, invest the time to build, and then package and ship the rods for $40. It would be a money-losing proposition. Now, you might say "you could make improvements, and sell them for more than $40". However, being a "new" business, and not having a lot of "name recognition," I would expect people to be hesitant to pay more for my rods than they could get them for elsewhere. So, long story short, I don't think I would be successful, from a business perspective, trying to sell E-Trac rods.

    Same thing with the Equinox. I've pondered selling Equinox rods/shafts. But, I am sure that simply making a carbon-fiber lower shaft for the Equinox would likely not draw many buyers. And since I expect the Equinox lower rods to be inexpensive, I couldn't compete, price-wise, with a carbon-fiber lower rod design. I considered making an entire shaft system for the Equinox, but -- not being a beach hunter and thus not knowing what a beach hunter would want, and since it's largely beach hunters who like customized shafts, I wouldn't know what to make that people would want.

    Probably more info than you were wanting, Gerry. As my daughter would say, "TMI!"

    But, I really appreciate the "vote of confidence" that you'd even request it!

    A little long, but.... well told Steve. Just kidding!
    Now I just have to figure out the inside joke... damn I hate being on the receiving of the joke, especially those “inside” ones... left with no ammo in a manner of speaking.
    Thanks,
    Gerry

    Gerry,

    No -- the inside joke wasn't about you, LOL -- it was about your request for a rod for a different machine. Possumcop suggested to me awhile back that I should consider making rods for other machines beside just the CTX...and so when you asked about an E-Trac rod, he was basically saying "see, Steve, I told you so!"

    LOL!

    A message for all who have contacted me about purchasing rods...

    I received an order of 20 blank carbon-fiber tubes Monday, and 20 of the "clevis" pieces, that attach to the lower rod (where the coil attaches and where the coil cable routes into the inside of the rod) will arrive this afternoon. I have begun initial prep work on the tubes, and when the clevises arrive today, I will begin assembly on a batch of 20 lower rods. I should have the rods available to be shipped starting next week. If you are on the pre-order list, I will be contacting you individually with about a week to arrange payment/shipment. If you are not on the list, but wish to be, or if you are interested in more information or to confirm your place on the pre-order list, please contact me via PM. In addition, my website is just about ready -- it is up and running, but still requires a few tweaks so I'm not releasing the URL publicly yet. But, I would be glad to give the URL out individually/privately, as the information contained on the page (including pictures) is complete enough so as to be helpful.

    THANKS to all who have shown interest in "Steve's Rods."
