AccuturnMFG SuperLite CF Shaft for the Minelab SD/GP/GPX and White’s PulseScan TDI metal detector to replace the stock aluminum shaft. Made of high quality Carbon fiber.
CNC machined and assembled here in the U.S.A.
It is a myth that carbon/charcoal interferes with Pulse Induction detectors. This myth was started when it was discovered that in areas where there was a recent wildfire it was difficult to detect. The real reason this is a problem is not because of the trees that were burned and turned to carbon, in fact it is because the heat from the fire causes the minerals in the ground to change molecularly and as a result they interefere more with the detector. If you don’t believe it, get a charcoal briquette and wave it by your detector.
Aluminum, however, being a metal, does interfere with your metal detector’s signal, decreasing sensitivity and decreasing depth. Carbon fiber does neither. This is especially prevalent with coils above 12”. The larger the coil, the more the stock aluminum shaft interferes. And since this is a hobby, or in some cases a business, where fractions of an inch can mean hundreds of dollars in your pocket, don’t you want every advantage you can have?
The carbon also weighs considerably less. Only 4.8oz vs the 7.5oz aluminum for the Minelab, and 9.6oz vs 14.6oz for the White’s. For those of you that don’t know, carbon is much stronger than aluminum as well.
The shaft is made of pultruded carbon with a 3k twill wrap on the outside.
Our two piece shaft uses a cam twist lock to ensure that the lower half does not rattle around inside the upper half, just like the one that came on your detector that locks the lower shaft into the upper shaft. No cheap, shoddy o-rings here! *All rights reserved to all Accuturn Manufacturing products.
