Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

I don't think the wavelength of Bluetooth can "punch" through water at all - pity really as Bluetooth, the protocol, was named after a Danish viking king, haha;-). As far as I know, none of the...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Hi Ross,
Great to hear from you:)
Sadly, there aren't captions on my pics on the site, but I have had so many great moments with these amazing women and have proper background stories for most of...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Yes, the Ama and Haenyeo are very much sisters in culture and spirit, but the Ama seem to get all the glory. But the real story is that there are pretty much none left in Japan, whereas in S. Korea -...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Yeah, moving to Asia honestly opened my eyes to how important it is that we start really farming seafood - in a sustainable matter. I mean, we don't shoot wild buffalo on the prairies any longer, so...

Re: Timber spearguns from Asia

The actual location might still be in China. A ton of Taiwanese and HK companies produce in Fujian and Guangdong province but show their original/HQ company addresses to the outside world since it...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

I think it's fairly established that the Taiwanese fishing fleet is pretty much roaming the world with impunity. Have been so for a few decades by now. I sometimes come across reports of poaching in...

Re: Carbon Wrap

I realized I have been using bag "sleeves" most of the time - it's just that they are 1m wide, haha. Anyways, I haven't really had big leaks on those either. But for smaller parts, I have since...

Re: Carbon Wrap

Yep, the vast majorities of laminating epoxies have zero UV protection in them. So far, I have decided not to care - but the hazing on my last resin was a bummer.
I got you on the rotissirie, I...

Re: Carbon Wrap

All good points. And yup, it's probably just a tiny leak somewhere along the tacky tape.

Yes, peel ply was specifically made so that you could do secondary bonding without having to prep the...

Re: Carbon Wrap

Good info, Majd! It's cool to have all this in one thread. I had been wondering about the heat shrink and it's great to have been saved the headache of trying it out.
I've mentioned it before -...

Very much so, this is exactly the type that Mikel and I mentioned - and the type I have. I have the smallest possible one as for our purposes, you really don't need anything else. It's actually also...

Come to think about it, I have some vacuum bags used for storing duvets, winter clothes, etc sitting in my closet chuck full of rubber bands. You know, the corny TV-shop kinda product with a Zip...

Re: Carbon Wrap

I agree. I don't know how much vacuum a vacuumer pulls, but I doubt that it is enough.
Some people who do huge parts, like boat hulls or DIY aero parts start with a vacuumer just to evacute most...

Re: Carbon Wrap

Can't help this one as you are right about the rest, but plenty of guys manage to get leak free bags, period;-). It's not super easy, but it's certainly not impossible either. Even I have managed....

Re: New Abellan Denton 2019

Afaik, these guns would not be coming out of Spain but the US. Something like a licensing collaboration, possibly.
Last I heard, they had bought an expensive CNC machine and were getting that...

Re: Custom Roller Gun

Nice looking build and great with some history behind the wood.
Quick question, you measure distance to target from the tip of the spear?

Re: Soft Shackles for floatline rigs. Anybody use them?

I've made a few for the attachment point at the handle and onto the floatline, and will probably do more in the future. I like the simplicity and how quiet they are - no metal clanging against metal.

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

A Danish engineer and spearo did this some years ago just for fun. He said some species bolted, others didn't. Sadly, I can't recall which ones weren't bothered...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Yeah, that stainless steel sling was the one I had in mind.
Of course, there'll be funky tech here. A lot of Chinese didn't grow up with water sports, many can't swim and it's only now that diving...

China's own technology spearguns

Yep. E.g. I am fairly sure Omer makes a lot of their guns here, if not all. They def make fins and other stuff. Wetsuits might be from Thailand or China.



They do make some local wooden guns...

Re: Carbon fiber question

Not sure I understand;-)?
The sleeves come pretty much as long as you want them. They are woven as one long continuous sleeve, though you pay for them per feet/meter.

Don't have much to add other than a thumbs up and a rule of thumb...;-)
First, cudos to Dean for sharing the trick - I think it's something a lot of us have wondered about (and the guns look great)!...
