Not a fan of reviews but this is a great product. I bought this to be able to pack in a backpack for hiking into remote places and it’s great for that but what I didn’t expect is how solid the shaft is. No wobble at all. High Plains is great to work with as well.
I bought the telescopic carbon stem for its light weight and the ability to now fit my detector into my back pack . Just stow and go , hop on the mountain bike and ride the old carriage roads to the ancient homesteads of Massachusetts. Works very well and seems sturdy enough. Great so far !!
