Re: Gladiator Bestiarius 120 Invert Roller

I am one of those who tune the floppers to stay open, sharpens the back end and raises it a little bit. So far I haven't damaged my line and in one of the guns the setup is just like this. Doesn't...

Re: RIFFE Marauder speargun

That rottisiere system rocks! That's the best way to apply the final coats of epoxy.

Re: Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

If you plan on shooting dentex with this gun, by no doubt attach the mono to the second hole. You will avoid putting the mono inside the mech and if you push the shaft all the way through the fish...

Re: Gladiator Bestiarius 100 Invert Roller

Beautiful gun and attention to detail is second to none. Got to love CNC. However guns like that don't come out JUST because CNC is used... there is a lot of work behind during the design phase!

Re: new backyard build for reef & light bluewater - pic heavy

Great build and the results speak for themselves. If not about the looks, think that the more polished a surface is, the least chances it has to corrode (less real surface in contact with the water...

Re: Demka Spearguns

No, you are not missing anything. Regular pipe guns all the way. And somewhat boxy/ugly looking if you ask me. By that time other brands were putting out more ergonomic, roundish, ovalish shaped...

Re: longer SS thread inserts for Abellan-style handles

Kavachi,

Not to burst your bubble but the items pictured in your post are not meant to be used as inserts. Those are called rivetnuts or rivnuts. They are meant to provide a threaded hole whenever...

Let's not forget Monica Belucci, please....:D

But back to the topic on hand (not that hand, the OTHER hand), when I think curves I am talking about Abellan-like curves. Or some guns crafted by DMC...

Re: OctoSub Spearguns

While I don't doubt that those guns kill fish, and do it very well indeed, I still find hard to swallow the lack of curves. They look somewhat simplistic! Eficiente? Yes. But not aesthetically...

Re: Completed 62" Light BW Build

Looking good! However I would expect a epoxy finish to look more glassy! Customer request for it to look like that? How many coats did you aply? Rottisiere setup?

Great gun all arround!

Re: First attempt at a custom handle Pathos 120

Sand is great for grip but will eat your gloves over time. It can be excesively rough.

When I do my handles, I lke to coat it with epoxy and when it is gelling, sprinkle it with plain SALT. But...

Re: Vacuum Powered Implosion Speargun

As usual, humanity is very creative when it comes to designing items to destroy, kill, maim or hunt. Fishing (spearfishing in our particular case) is no exception!

Re: Briante spearguns

10mm shaft... definitely that's NOT for my type of fishing and hunting grounds. I cannot think of a single shot I have taken in my life as a spearo that could have benefit from such a hunk of steel....

Re: ACE Spearguns from Australia

Cool guns although the ones with screw on handles are not my favourite. I much rather have the handle intergrated (and pushed up as much as possible) into the stock.

And, yes, about time the...

Re: Inflatable dive float

The Gecko was perfect, very little use. I got to work...

Re: Looking For a New Mask - Problem with Forehead Pressure

Re: RIFFE Marauder speargun

That handle is the result of attaching add-on handles screwed from the bottom to the stock of the gun. Instead of improved... I would say... fully redisigned. But then we would be talking about...

Re: Looking For a New Mask - Problem with Forehead Pressure

Only suggestion I could think off is for you to go to a well stocked store and try on as many masks as you can. Forget about low volume and focus on comfort. This is like wetsuits and skiing boots......
