    More of my hand-made carbon-fiber CTX 3030 lower rods READY (NEW - travel rods, too!)

    Hi all!

    I have just completed assembly of another batch of my hand-made, high-quality carbon-fiber lower rods for the CTX 3030; rods are in stock and ready to sell.

    A couple of announcements...


    1. PRICING

    The introductory pricing on the rods has expired; the new, standard pricing on these rods will be $89 plus shipping. HOWEVER, I will offer a 15% discount to all buyers who mention this ad. With the 15% discount, pricing for the rods for TreasureNet forum members will be $76 plus shipping. I will combine shipping costs for any order of more than one rod.

    2. TRAVEL RODS

    In addition to standard one-piece rods, am now offering two-piece "travel rods," as a special-order item, to anyone interested. The rods will be exactly the same as a "standard" rod, except that a threaded, stainless-steel connector is used, which will allow the rod to be unscrewed/disassembled into two, roughly 16" pieces. Travel rods will normally sell for $135 plus shipping, but TreasureNet forum members mentioning this ad will receive the same 15% discount as offered on the regular rods. With the 15% discount, pricing for these two-piece rods will be $115 plus shipping.

    Finally, I can send a small sample piece of the carbon-fiber tubing used to build the rods, to anyone who is interested. Please contact me, if interested in a sample.

    Thanks!

    Steve

    Isn't the CTX lower rod already made of carbon fiber?

    coinshooter --

    Yep, that's what the Minelab rods are made of. I'm just stressing the "carbon fiber" part, so that folks don't assume -- based on the price point -- that I must be using inferior materials. I'm just trying to make sure it's clear that mine are made of same material as the factory rods, but at a more affordable price.

    In advertising these rods for sale, I'm trying to target people that have extra coils for their CTX, but don't have a spare rod to go with those coils. The extra rods make swapping out coils a MUCH easier process -- and yet a lot of people have avoided buying extra rods for their accessory coils, due to the high cost that Minelab charges for the rods ($175). My goal was to build a rod of equal or better quality, but at a much cheaper price, so that I could have one for each of my two extra CTX coils. Once I figured out the process, and accomplished the goal, I figured I might as well put the knowledge to use and continue to build them; I thought others might also be interested in spare, high-quality rods, if they could be had at a more affordable price...

    Thanks!

    Steve
