I have a question for all the experts out there:   Idiot

I have been detecting for a little over a year, Do you know why minelab has so much cable to wrap around the shafts, is there a reason for the excess? Crazy
Why I ask is I clean my detector all the time whenever I go out and I can see wear and tear from constantly coiling around the shaft. Seems Minelab  would run a little slack in the cable and attacch to the shaft so when you shorten to dive with it you dont have 12 ft of cable to wrap around 2FT of shaft.
Any thoughts? Pray

Master Chief

The reason for the wire length is so you can disconnect the unit from the shaft and wear it on a belt. Divers can then let the coil float nearby and pull it in when needed. Get some Velcro cable ties and secure it to stop the chafing.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.
