Re: Nokta Simplex

I was a whites guy for 30 years or so and always had to buy tall man rods. I'm no longer interested in paying extra because I'm tall. Minelab, XP, Garrett all are plenty long enough for me. I've owned 5 makro/nokta detectors and none were tall enough. The racers I could use another brand lower for but the newest makro/nokta have specialized shafts and do not make tall man rods. All companies should make their detectors tall enough for tall people. They would still work fine for short people. If someone could measure it I'd really appreciate it.

Maybe you can consider other possibilities like:

- to buy longer replaceable lower rod,
- to buy another shaft and move detector electronic on it if it's movable,
- to prolong lower rod by inserting made of impregnated wood or abs tube:
