Re: Does a magnet affect spear velocity?

I epoxied a thin rare earth magnet into the Muzzle of one of my guns just for that reason - worked quite well, but they rust out really fast. Decided it wasn't worth the effort (though I'm sure a...

Re: wood handle classic and ergonomic thumb rest

These look awesome! Have you considered selling them? Probably a tricky market for spearguns, but there are companies out there who made handles (albeit sport guns) their sole business…

Re: How short is too short? Will this damage my barrel ?

Mine does. No clue why (still has stock rubber which seem a bit too long). It's my spare gun though, only used it once and didn't get around fixing it yet. 115 Sniper

Re: Carbon fibre to strengthen wooden muzzle

Re: 2 shafts, 1 gun

I used your first option with double 16mm, worked a treat for any size reef fish

Re: How short is too short? Will this damage my barrel ?

Uh, I just noticed the open muzzle – how are you planning to wrap your shooting line over the spear? In front of the flopper won't do it.
I suggest buying a new one.

I'm using the small stainless beads from shower curtain hooks as inserts. One set (~ $1) is good for 30 bands…

Re: Sporasub america one alternative

Re: Sporasub america one alternative

Yep, I've given up on the RA spears too, considering their price in Oz and NZ. The only ss shafts with a reasonable quality here are Riffe, but again at over $100 a pop you still flinch a glimpse of...

Re: Sporasub america one alternative

There's a sporasub one shaft you're describing for their sk40 gun but max length is 130 at 6.4mm thickness. The beauty with the hardened flopper is only available for their One air. Being in the same...

Re: Need help: How to remove trigger mechanism for Sporasub One 105

Just had a look at mine and unfortunately it seems you can pull it only from top with a major operation. However, the pin in the back and the one in the handle lets you remove handle and butt, making...

Re: Rob allen misfired

RA had a trigger recall a while ago, if you still have the old black one, you'll get it exchanged for the grey. Won't fix it if there's an issue with the sear though, may pay to take a closer look.

Re: Small reel recommendations

I have an ermes colibri in my shelf reserved for my next reef gun. Can't give you a review just yet, since it won't get wet for a while, but it looks quite sturdy and very well built. Worth a look.

Re: Gladiator Bestiarius 112 inverted roller

Haha – if this is your 'standard' model, I'd be really keen on seeing the deluxe version. This is a piece of art, great and inspiring work!

Re: Weedtrimmer line for Mono?

No, of course it's not worth loosing a shaft over. Though if it is the exact same stuff, off the same roll, from the same factory it's neither worth paying a premium for -insert brand here-...

Since you're in Australia – have you considered Jarrah? Has very similar density to Padauk and I have seen them work.

Re: Threaded inserts for reel mount

Jason, is that a dab of silicone grease (as used for gaskets and o-rings) or the gluey stuff you'd use for fixtures and things around the bathroom?

Re: Weedtrimmer line for Mono?

Thanks Phil. That looks like the ticket, but won't get it in my neck of the woods. Not going to risk loosing a shaft with the line.

Re: Weedtrimmer line for Mono?

Well, I thought it may have even more tensile strength, given it needs to be as abrasive resistant as possible. Think it will have more memory though?
