Re: Gladiator Spartacus V2 120

The attention to detail is like nothing I've ever seen! Inspirational next level speargun building. Every time you post I think "He's thought of everything". Then the next batch takes it up a notch!

Re: Trio of Midhandles

I like the reef mech for my midhandle builds. I like the Ermes mech for my rear handle euro-style builds. Just my preference

Sharing these recently completed small midhandle builds I just finished up. The two smaller ones are mahogany monoblock stocks and the larger one is a teak/wenge layup. These guys are 47, 41 and 38...

Re: Salvimar Max Reel

Makes sense now knowing you have a hunk of stainless at the muzzle.

Re: Salvimar Max Reel

Why is the ballast compartment so far back though? Every gun I've ever had to ballast has been more positive towards the muzzle.

Re: new custom build

I've only ever made two guns with fancy colored tracks. I'm not that great at them but a couple things you can try. First one is rather than pouring the entire track in one shot do it in two or three...

Re: Rob Allen knot.

I have yet to have that happen. Dave Hochman is the one who turned me onto it. He's been using for years and swears by it.

Re: Fusion Roller Build

Thanks for that information! Is the internal line on the top band connected to the wishbone knots inside the band?

Re: Fusion Roller Build

Pretty much. The bottom bands get tensioned before you get in the water. Once in the water just pull the top band back to engage the spear. After firing you only need to pull the top band back. Super...

Re: Fusion Roller Build

Re: Rob Allen knot.

This knot works great. I've used it for the last three years. Addend benefit; no more holes in your gloves from the sharp ends on those pigtail "quick" disconnects! Never had the knot fail.

Re: MVD Roller Muzzles specs

You should also look into the new Mannysub double roller head. He has adapters to fit different sized tubes.

Good to know. Put me on the list of those not crazy about how the drag works on this version of the MVD reel. I'll have to check out the newer version.

Re: Fusion Roller Build

Thank you. No the top band does not have line running through it. It is connected to the bands on the bottom via the line running over the rollers you see in the images.
