Equinox COMPACT Upgrade Bundle

Looking for an even lighter carbon fiber option? See our other Equinox Upgrade Bundles HERE.


Built for Convenience

The brand new Detect-Ed COMPACT Series Carbon Shaft is a fully low weight, 3 piece design made to collapse down smaller, yet still extend to full length to make transporting or storing your Minelab Equinox 600/800 metal detector even easier!

How Does it Compare?

The Compact Shaft for Minelab Equinox metal detector is a 3 piece design that telescopes down to an even smaller size than our other Equinox shaft sets.  The original Detect-Ed shafts (2 piece design) are still the lowest weight option for your Equinox metal detector while this compact 3 piece design is the most convenient for storage, travel and fitting your detector into a bag.  


- 30% lighter than the stock Equinox shaft
- Telescopes down small for transport and storage
- Bolt-On Upgrade (all parts included)
- Smooth matte finished Carbon Fibre finish
- Anodized Aluminium twist-lock clamps
- 100% Carbon fibre

The Detect-Ed Alloy Arm Cuff is a high-quality CNC cut aluminium part, with smooth edges all round. It is designed primarily to replace the fragile plastic arm cuffs found on many metal detectors! 

The cuff is designed to be ergonomic as it hugs the arm rather than the sloppier fit of most modern metal detecting machines. The placement is not dictated by the holes on your shaft, allowing you the flexibility to bolt it in your preferred position.

We designed the arm cuff without padding so that it's compatible with submerged and wet environments. However, the low profile button heads are essentially unnoticeable on your forearm as product testers have also confirmed. It also has rounded edges for comfort.

The arm strap points are lower than some standard cuffs meaning your arm is strapped down snugly in place rather than bouncing off the walls of the cuff.
