Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

This is what I meant by using the wrap hook on the bottom as a line guide.

Re: Gladiator Bestiarius 105-110

Interesting to see the band troughs for the top band. Nice blended curves everywhere give the gun a molded appearance, very symmetrical and smooth. Highly contoured are the words that I am looking...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Are you running the shooting line through the lower line wrap hook with the reel fitted?

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Maybe a combination of not putting too much emphasis on “feeding the chooks” and “build it and they will come” (with money) regardless.

Old sayings. Heads blown off and guts torn open evidence stays on the bottom. Deaths at sea remain at sea.

Re: What to do with old Swimaster Voit? Shaft diameter?

You can use 9/16" bands on the Magnum, that is what the guns were fitted with originally.

Re: Omer discontinue their pneumatic guns

​I recently had a look at an Omer "AIR XII" brand new in its shipping box and noticed that in very tiny letters on the end of the white cardboard box it said "Made in Taiwan". So assumedly are the...

Re: What to do with old Swimaster Voit? Shaft diameter?

If you don't want it then give it to some kid who wants to start spearfishing, it seems to be all there, so not really sure why you are asking. JBL haters have yet to come out of the woodwork.

Re: What to do with old Swimaster Voit? Shaft diameter?

The Voit Swimaster Magnum was produced by Joe LaMonica for the company, when they got out of spearfishing he continued making the gun under his own name, hence JBL. The safety only works when the...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

A good idea, which C4 might care to adopt, is to put user manuals or instruction books on their website in the form of pdf files. If an owner loses his copy he can then easily replace it by...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Issuing an owner’s manual seems to be a first as nothing came with my “Urukay”. Although what is in it is rather basic we have to remember some gun buyers have little experience, so telling them...

Before you change the muzzle try it as is, then you will know if you really need to change anything.

Re: Omer discontinue their pneumatic guns

Re: Bleutec muzzle question

"No" to both questions. More likely stylistic and somewhere solid to hold the line hook.

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Back in post #14 I commented on this and expected that the curving shape of the stock was being relied on to accommodate the now inclined band pull. As for the lack of extreme shape variation it is...
