Coil brace
« on: February 09, 2014, 17:58 »
Is there such a thing as a coil brace for a Sand Shark? Took Sharky into the surf the other day and couldn't get the coil to stay in one place regardless of how much I tightened the wingnut.

Do any other salt water detectors have a brace option?

Any chance of adding an o ring or 2 (either side) in there for a little extra traction?

Yes there is. I add a thin plastic washer to the inside of the coil brace. Works like a charm, that's all you will need, very strong. Forget kellyco, they are dodgy.
