    I thought about it, but at the moment I really don't want to get into all the political stuff that will blow up from that video. A lot of people are pretty set in what they believe to be true and will not be happy. Send me a PM and maybe I can send you a link on condition it is not shared.

    Hi have you been able to go hunting lately? When is the dry season in Panama?
    Cheers, Kerry

    Maybe you should tell him to send them at 350% first so you can try them? You can always cut them, you cannot make them longer.

    Well that is good news. I must have been a week too late. I wish I had an 8mm... oh well. If it is the cressi bands you should have no problems. It will be heavy but your height wont matter because the gun is very compact. As long as you have some strength. At 350% mine are very manageable. Like Carlos said in the Panama post. I use a 7.5x1500 though so the mass should be very similar to the 8x1400. I have been shooting some very nice fish with it and cannot believe the accuracy. Like Victor told me, aim at exactly where you want to hit. And jokes aside, he is right. You do not have to compensate like most guns. Aim at brain, hit brain. I've never had so much fun spearfishing.

    I just received my gun from Victor about a month ago so if standard is now 8mmx1400 it must have been changed in the last couple weeks. I have just read 17 pages of that forum where they tested the gun and it is very interesting. The 7.5 RA shaft I use is 1500mm so probably very close in mass to the shorter 8mm. I wonder how much speed I may be losing with 3/64 cable I wonder what that guy used for line in panama? Also, the bands victor sent me were 350, not 400%.

    Thank you for the link

    Abellan is now mounting the 8mmx1400 as standard, with cressi brown 16mm, I think charged at 400x? they did the pool tests and this was the fastest set up, check out http://www.pescasub.com/foros/index....c,36565.0.html.
    Carlos during his Panama trip was using the bands at 350x to have more flexibility and ease of use....

    I saw this post but never after the original report. I did not know people were using 8mm shafts, that is all I've ever used. I have not used the Abellan shaft yet, only custom made Rob Allen 7.5x1500 single flopper with pins all the way back (same as Abellans). I have been shooting it with 16mmx350 bands and 3/64 stainless steel cable. It has shot really hard at the current setup. I have had one 7.5mm shaft before and really liked it. You could tell it has the speed of a smaller shaft but still plenty power. I don't know if I would go back to 8mm after shooting this Rob Allen 7.5, its is very stiff and I'm not shooting huge fish like that report (until I go to Mexico in July maybe

    I also bought a 7.5mm abellan threaded shaft and put a Ultimate Slip-tip on it for cobia and small tuna which I will try this weekend. I'm trying to keep it very fast so it hits where I aim. The speed is what I have enjoyed most since getting the gun.

    Currently I use the Ulusub 165 for bluewater and will likely use it in Mexico for larger game. I only use one other gun now and that is a Abellan Denton 120. I have only had it for a month but it is incredibly accurate and powerful. It shoots a 7.5 shaft and if you look at abellansub.com you can see where he tests the gun with the standard 2 x 16mm setup hitting a 2 inch square from 6 meters. I see time and time again people shooting 60 - 80 cuberas with this 120. It is also the size of a normal 110 railgun, only 54" total. I do not think a more compact and powerful gun exists at this time.
