I'd also like to second the "stand" for the XP, but I'd move it up under the base of the handle. The design of the Deus shaft makes the bottom of the grip hit the ground, and the cuff and wings are a couple of inches up. My detector is constantly rolling to the side. Even pathetic wings like the ones on the cuff would be a vast improvement!
Another idea, for non-Deus machines, is the eye end on lower shafts so that someone can use a CF pole and just insert the loop on the end to hold a coil, without having to purchase a full lower shaft and chop it up (or insert the whole thing and pick up the extra weight).
I'm finishing up all the CTX 3030 mods this weekend, then moving onto the Deus, starting with the stand. I can make a couple versions easy, and I know what you are talking about. What I really need to do is get my hands on the Deus shaft/handle for a couple days so I can do a thorough 3D scan of it.
Is the attached what you were thinking of?
