Love to know how you think it compares to the standard shaft.

Where did you get it from?

As we never got any feedback from the OP, I ordered a straight shaft for my Alter 71. It is here and fitted, and feels very nice. A proper test will be carried out this weekend at the Rally. ::g

Now to be quite honest I was more than happy with the original S bend shaft, but I had a small issue that pushed me into getting the straight shaft. The issue was the anti wobble bung in the lower shaft, you see it came out when I was changing coils and got stuck in the original shaft, and because of the shape of the shaft it is now stuck in there. With the new shaft if one of the bungs comes out, I will be able to just push it all the way through. ::g :D

My original post was just a heads up that a straight middle shaft was available for the RA 71.

I just prefer my metal detectors to have a straight shaft [ Nox, Deus, E trac, and now RA 71.
