Interesting site devoted to speargun setup

He's got a tool you can use to play around with different band setups, determining at what point shaft whip occurs etc. I think Pete will enjoy this.

Re: QUESTION: Tips&tricks for installing pinned mechs

A little late to the comments here but I did a little post about a new method I've adopted when pinning mechs. This was specific to the Neptonics Reef mech but could be used with others. Read Here...

Re: Fusion Rollers - Build photos and finished guns

The handles go pretty quick a rough cut "blank" takes maybe 1/2 an hour. Once it's glued into the stock it takes me about another 2 hours to get to the final shape. Didn't vac bag them, material was...

Re: Gladiator Spartacus V2 120

The attention to detail is like nothing I've ever seen! Inspirational next level speargun building. Every time you post I think "He's thought of everything". Then the next batch takes it up a notch!

Re: Trio of Midhandles

I like the reef mech for my midhandle builds. I like the Ermes mech for my rear handle euro-style builds. Just my preference

Sharing these recently completed small midhandle builds I just finished up. The two smaller ones are mahogany monoblock stocks and the larger one is a teak/wenge layup. These guys are 47, 41 and 38...

Re: Salvimar Max Reel

Makes sense now knowing you have a hunk of stainless at the muzzle.

Re: Salvimar Max Reel

Why is the ballast compartment so far back though? Every gun I've ever had to ballast has been more positive towards the muzzle.

Re: new custom build

I've only ever made two guns with fancy colored tracks. I'm not that great at them but a couple things you can try. First one is rather than pouring the entire track in one shot do it in two or three...

Re: Rob Allen knot.

I have yet to have that happen. Dave Hochman is the one who turned me onto it. He's been using for years and swears by it.

Re: Fusion Roller Build

Thanks for that information! Is the internal line on the top band connected to the wishbone knots inside the band?

Re: Fusion Roller Build

Pretty much. The bottom bands get tensioned before you get in the water. Once in the water just pull the top band back to engage the spear. After firing you only need to pull the top band back. Super...

Re: Rob Allen knot.

This knot works great. I've used it for the last three years. Addend benefit; no more holes in your gloves from the sharp ends on those pigtail "quick" disconnects! Never had the knot fail.

Re: MVD Roller Muzzles specs

You should also look into the new Mannysub double roller head. He has adapters to fit different sized tubes.
