Re: Double Roller Trigger for Pathos handle, Ermes Sub

Another update; the one I have in my D1 handle has a very smooth pull but it does sit a tiny bit proud. At some point Iíll pull it out and see if I didnít take enough handle material off or whether...

Re: MVD Double Roller Mech

Yeah, I think thereís money and some proper research behind Huntmaster. In this case, I think they had picked up on the buzz of the Ermes trigger and felt it would help launch their product line. So,...

Re: New Abellan Denton 2019

Just to make it clear, on this whole thread this new Abellan with the upgrades Majd mentioned is indeed ďthe American AbellanĒ, haha. Greekdiver is, afaik, living in the US and the partners behind...

MAKO Spearguns Quick Ditch Belt Reel

Iím a big believer in belt reels (who ever sells them) but actually, you may soon find that having it clipped to the gun most of the time adds a nice benefit: you can let go of the gun on the surface...

New Abellan Denton 2019

Well, there isnít sadly but there was supposed to be. Maybe @Greekdiver or someone else can lay the speculation to rest with an update?

As for Orca, then it was the guy I talked to. I think they...

The Infinite Engines Dreamair moves from dream to reality

I actually had the parts for a 3:1 version of my PulleyLoader for my airgun but turned out 2:1 was enough for my use. But 3:1 would possibly give me a bit more control of the shaft during loading so...

Garmin MK2

Great feedback on the Garmin.

As for the Suunto series of D4s in their various guises - batteries are actually very easy to change by the user. Suunto just donít advise it. Partly I guess cuz...

Re: Cetma Prana Carbon Composite Freedive Fins?

Arenít they the quite long ones?
If so, keep in mind that you might very well hang them up a bit more if youíre doing a lot of aspetto/aguatto.
I dive with a guy who uses them and in bluewater he...

Re: The Infinite Engines Dreamair moves from dream to reality

Nice fish. The previous video he put out had some recoil, too leading me to conclude/speculate that the gun has really been powered up recently. I pointed it out to Andrea who seemed almost offended...

Re: Does epoxy hold silicon? (for gun butt pad)

If youíre a gun builder youíll have epoxy around and perhaps you can cut a small sample of the silicone in question and make a test to verify for yourself...?

Re: Does epoxy hold silicon? (for gun butt pad)

Short answer; no.
As a rule, only silicone will stick to silicone but itís hard to find a good silicone adhesive.
If the mat is actually PU or rubber and not silicone then yes, you can use an...

Re: Who makes the best rubber

Primeline does make a standard ID rubber and while I only have small ID rubber from them - I havenít yet seen that cold, grayish color for the core.

Crack in Bleutec gun

Please donít bother with only epoxy. While epoxy is strong it's nothing compared to the fibers in a laminate. For epoxy to work on its own you need a fairly large glue bond (surface area) and nicely...

Re: Crack in Bleutec gun

Yeah, I can see that approach working on a wood gun. But not on a composite gun. The surface area you have between the two edges of the crack is nothing compared to what it would be in a solid wood...
