Hello again.
Two years ago I bought an Aquapulse AQ-1B (for me personally the best underwater metal detector), but there was something about it that I did not like. Namely, an S-shaped shaft that it has. I have some experience with such a shaft (Minelab Excalibur 2) that overloads hand under water. I equipped my Axcalibur with an Anderson carbon shaft and I was impressed with this combination. I came up with the idea to equip my Aquapulse, which has a 38 cm coil, with such a carbon shaft. I bought the shaft, but I did not have the end of the front shaft
which grips the coil. I contacted the dealer from whom I purchased the metal detector to see if they had such a tip to glue it to my remaining front shaft from the Excalibur. It turned out that he sold such a tip, which I immediately purchased. I cut the front shaft and glued it to the tip. For greater security, I also put a plastic bolt with a nut. It turned out something unique. And here are some pictures of this combination.
