Re: AB Biller 48 special modifications?

A few weeks ago I went on a spearfishing trip where a friend of mine invited me. I got him started spearfishing almost 20 years ago and really never caught up with him since. He was still using the...

Re: Band stretch. Where is the upper limit?

I think about 390% is the very limit. That is when bands stop getting "stretchy". If you can load 15mm small ID bands to 390% ... you certainly have got your band loading technique optimized!

As...

Re: Double Roller Trigger for Pathos handle, Ermes Sub

I agree about the handle. As for how I modded the handle, I didn't have to do much as the distance from trigger to palm is perfect for me as is. I just added a little epoxy putty to the right side...

Re: Loading pin/rest tab installation?

To do the roller band length ... go with the minimum length you can get away without having any pre-stretch. Adding pre-stretch to the roller band will cause your shaft to shoot low. As for the...

Re: What Iam I doing wrong ?

Do you have some close up pix of that mech. I am curious to what the problem is. Mario from Ermessub send me the drawings for this mech to see if I can help trouble shoot it and simulate the action...

Re: 120 cm Exotic wood reef gun project

I would first start off with what length shaft you plan to use and what diameter and then build my gun around that. If I were to start building a 120cm gun, I would choose a 150cm @ 7mm shaft ......

Re: Loading pin/rest tab installation?

My first question is what bands are you using? If you are using the default 17.5mm bands that came with the Sniper 105 then maybe a good idea would be to switch them out to 14mm or 14.5mm bands. ...

Re: Double Roller Trigger for Pathos handle, Ermes Sub

It was actually a lot more problematic than I thought. Initially I just dremelled slightly the inside to allow for the trigger to drop in. The plastic material is very soft so is quite easy to...

Re: High Current Gun Suggestions

No, I tried the handle from Salvimar for a gun called Metal which according to the local Salvimar dealer has the same roller trigger as the Salvimar Hero. After looking online I can see that the...

Re: What Iam I doing wrong ?

That is not a double roller trigger. This is the floating front roller trigger that is a replacement for the Dangelo 2 trigger for Pathos. There is another post with this trigger and this trigger...

Re: Pathos handles

I wouldn't bother with the Abellan trigger as the Pathos Dangelo 1 already has a plastic trigger. I guess if you wanted side line release that would be an option. But the price of the Abellan...

Re: Source of Bulk Colored Rubber

That is actually very dangerous and we have had several fatal accidents locally with spearos getting hit by boats. Use a floatline and tie your gun to it. It is a PIA initially, but you get used to...

Re: Pathos roller kit ... to roll or not to roll!

You always want a flopper toggled on the other side of the fish before you try to handle it.

As for the power of 82cm gun, I was actually quite surprised at how much power I was able to get. ...

Re: Pathos handles

Re: High Current Gun Suggestions

An aluminium Pathos Pro 120 with the plastic trigger ... just mod the handle with epoxy putty, then 2 x 14.5mm bands and a good 7mm or 7.5mm shaft @ around 150cm to 155cm shaft ... add a cone to it...

Re: Source of Bulk Colored Rubber

I think spearitco go for the Black and Amber as they can give the best price. There was a time it was really difficult to get the small ID bands, but now many carry it. Functionally the black is...

Re: improving Pathos Sniper Roller 95

Nice! I agree that the Pathos 2 handle has a terrible loading pad. It just gets in the way of everything and is on as an after thought.

Re: Pathos handles

No not at all. The 1 grip has a plastic trigger sear that is also housed in a plastic cassette. The 2 grip has a Stainless Steel trigger that just drops in the handle and is held by a side pin. ...

Re: Pathos roller kit ... to roll or not to roll!

On some days the water was so murky that it felt like we were diving in milk. You could have very clear water in one area, then the current switches and all of a sudden it gets really murky. ...

Re: Pathos handles

I think the D'Angelo 3 handle just has the palm to trigger finger shortened by about 1cm (similar to the D'Angelo 1). I like the D'Angelo 1 handle best because it also has a better trigger than the...

Re: Ra Rollergun second thoughts and fish report

You need to setup your roller setup to just the point where the shaft doesn't start diving. It will shoot straight if you do that. Sure you will lose power, but you keep the accuracy. And to be...
