Re: Has the Captain of SpearBoard Abandoned Ship?

If the ship is sinking then it is all hands to the pump. Maybe Tony needs some help, so if you want the forum to keep going we need to think about how we can assist.

Re: Notable shift in politeness on this site...

Yes, a lot has probably disappeared into that “basement”, once it was created I never went there. A shift in politeness can go either way, but best if egos are parked at the door before entering the...

Re: Whites Off San Diego

Marine Parks were often created to attract votes. No doubt some conservation areas are a good idea, but often they are justified by nebulous ideas of "threats". You don't need a bomb disposal suit...

Re: Who makes the best rubber

The Chinese probably added "Primeline" as part of the "sell", seeing that they would view many online adverts for speargun bands mentioning Primeline and they then think this addition gives their...

Re: Whites Off San Diego

The reestablishment of seals and sea lions after decades of hunting for furs and meat has allowed the shark food supply to gradually return over about a century, and with it shark numbers. The beach...

Re: Cressi Saetta pneumatic

This diagram has only appeared relatively recently as I looked for it once before and there was only the manual for the gun which did not have it. I assume Cressi only released this info when owners...

Re: Crack in Bleutec gun

Judging by the split running through the sticker this crack goes a long way, especially when the image is magnified. Unless you have a strong attachment to this gun I think the safest course is to...

Re: Crack in Bleutec gun

Re: Crack in Bleutec gun

I agree, that is more than a small problem! Guns don't like being cooked in the sun, especially black ones which absorb all the sunlight as heat. Structural integrity under load may be compromised,...

Re: The Infinite Engines Dreamair moves from dream to reality

Looks like you are right, the inner drum is more of a cylinder, so its contribution to gearing is fixed in the single alloy barrel model. You would still have some gearing in the beehive shaped...

Another video. In this video we see the gun floating after the shot, tail down due to the reel. All carbon version of the "Dreamair".

The Chinese are so good at copying that they will print “charge protection circuit” on a battery that has none. I have seen “protected” 18650 batteries with no vents, so they are just the cheapest...
