Re: Gladiator Bestiarius 120 Invert Roller

Has that ever been done on a shaft in the way you explain it?
I certainly like a retaining method where you are not dependent on a rubber o-ring that ends up half way your shooting line after every...

Re: Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

Just watched the video. Thanks again for sharing it.

Re: Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

It remains unclear to me why it has slipped. Checked all my other crimps just to be sure.

The yellow line is stiff dyneema. Pretty decent stuff it seems to me.

Re: A new hybrid

That is a very fine looking gun I can imagine it performs at least as good as it looks.

I wonder how you shaped the wood to fit so precisely around the barrel?
Did you use a ball router bit the...

I must admit that getting the height of the mechanism can be tricky if anyone tries to do the same as me.
Even with a template it remained challenging. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures...

I am finally getting there seems to take forever. But then again I only spend half an hour here and there on it instead of reading a book at night.

Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

I drilled new holes for the trigger retaining pins but realized that by doing so I broke the waterproof barrier between the carbon and the foam core.

Just to make sure that no leaks would develop...

Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

Of course I go hole hunting but then I usually use a 75 or 82 gun. When I am using larger spearguns like this I am targeting reef fish that swim freely.
If I do encounter a good opportunity on a...

Hi Mikel,
Thanx for the advice. That is indeed usually what I do but my question is specifically related to accuracy.

Thanks for your reply. What you are saying makes sense and is what I already do.

Re: Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

@spearq8
Based on your experience with this gun do you think the placement of the mono would affect performance or accuracy?

Usually I always rig my mono on the shark fin but most of my...

Re: The Ocean's Critters are All on Vacation Here

That question is irrelevant. Everyone would like to have the diving spot to themselves. Unfortunately there is more than one little group of spearfisherman around and none of them own the ocean.

Very nice build. Maybe a bit crude here and there but that adds to the charm.

Looking forward to seeing the next one taking shape.

Re: Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

Yes I think you are right. I will apply one layer first and probably keep it like that unless it feels too rough. In that case I may apply a second coat to smooth it a bit.

Double Roller Trigger for Pathos handle, Ermes Sub

Why did you choose this version of the mechanism and not the drop in replacement? I think it does the job equally well and itís easier to install.

Nice work though.
