Minelab Equinox shaft adapter. Another shaft

Not everybody likes the Minelab Equinox shaft – some aspect of its design is flawed.

Nobody will argue that the Garrett AT PRO has been able to win its place in the history of metal detectors. Having taken this place, it set a new vector for MD hobby development. It was the Garrett AT PRO that launched an era of amphibian machines. However, the legend has become a bit outdated, so the manufacturer has made some changes to it.
