Carbonia 115x6

So this showed up at my door last week. Got to dive with it once so far. Only pulled trigger 3 times but three fish died. Will report back more once I get a few more times diving with it but when...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Nothing about this gun looks like an improvement over the guns they have already produced. Just my two cents.

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

It was easy. I carefully took a spade bit and drilled out most of it, the used the Dremel to finish the cleanup. Only took a few minutes.

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

I definately at some piont need to tear the muzzle down and smooth all the metal edges a bit more. I will have to monitor wear on the spectra line anchoring the bands. Would hate to have one side of...

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

QUOTE-I have a 7mm RA shaft (wire fin) coming in today. Not sure if my gun will be too powerful for it, but if so, I could adjust back down to 3 sets of bands. I'll post another picture later how...

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

Another detail-

I did foam fill the barrel. Worked exactly like the video. Then sealed with marine sealant to insure that no water would infilltrate the foam. I used 4lb and seems great. Gun...

Here is my Gun Built-

Took out today for first time. Definitely needs some tweaking but I am so happy once I pull the trigger. Drives nails right where I think it will. Is surprisingly heavy...

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

I think this worked. Apnea muzzle. I threaded one hole and inserted a stainless bolt which I ground down to a small shark spike. Also will try to use a line guide.

What I did with Makoa's barrel

I dont know how many people on spearboard bought a barrel from him but I thought it would be fun to start a thread for the different ways we built guns and what we thought about them. I am not very...

To bad they still arent using the muzzle from the Mr Dark. That seemed perfect.

Re: Thoughts on Abellan Albacore 130 vs Bleutec Oceanborn 125 & King Cobra

Re: Cuttled Barrel Ballasting

So not to hijack a thread but when I get back to Maui I will try the High density foam idea with the barrel I got from Makoa. I will start a new thread so I can get all help you all are willing to...

Re: Cuttled Barrel Ballasting

I am assuming it was 4". Largest PVC in stock at Home Depot. I am away from home so cannot check.

Question Re: Cuttled Barrel Ballasting

If you get the 4" PVC and use it when done you can repurpose it as a fresh water soak tank for your guns after diving. I got the basic idea from a post of Pete's saying you should really submerge...

Re: Cuttled Barrel Ballasting

Any thoughts on foam filling as opposed to plugging the barrel? Advantages and disadvantages?

Re: Rob Allen knot.

That's awesome. Also the tip about hooking the line from the reel on the release one more time to make a lower profile line route and ability to adjust tension better. Thanks for the video Rob!
