Default Big thanks to Steve's Detector rods.

Thanks again to Steve. My daughter loves the look of her nox now. Also on a side note I like how itís glossy like my Detect-Ed top shaft is not sure why they started not being glossy looks a little off that my top is and bottom isnít. My next purchase for myself will be the coiltek 10x5 and a shaft for it from Steve. Not sure if this is the first hot pink nox in the world but my kiddo thinks so.

Thanks again.

Love mine also from Steve. Great function and style. I have the black one. Makes my 800 1) lighter 2) stiffer (no wobble) 3) easy to adjust 4) and looks cool.

If you area considering any kind of upgrade, I recommend Steve and Coiltek 10 x 5" coil. You will not be disappointed.

Too bad there is not an upgrade to make the 800 really waterproof.
It is more like it is water resistant!

I don't trust mine in the water any more.

It is more like it is waterpoof!

I have had no issue with either of these in water. I have had my 800 under 6 ft no problem. I do know it happens especially around the charging area as seen in gigmasters video but I have been fortunate not yet to experience that problem. My 800 has paid for itself so I would be ok I suppose with getting another but I understand that issue and it sucks.

Well now just need a pink shovel setup for her and would like to find a pink carbon fiber arm cuff or I might just plastic or hydro dip it. Ended up getting a screen decal for her and a coil stiffener

My wife is starting to consider getting into the hobby. I may order the new deus once out for her so I have a reason to try one.
