Re: Inverted Roller Build

Still need to take some pics of the final product, but put this gun through the paces last week and it exceeded my expectations.

First thing you notice is that there is almost zero felt recoil. Second, it shoots lasers at 20 plus feet with no noticeable shaft drop. Hit every fish within range in the spine or within a 1/2" or so close.

Takes a little while to get the loading pattern down, but by the end of the trip I could load this just as quickly as my four band, traditional style mid-handle tuna gun.

The clear sight line with no bands on top is an added bonus. Perfect window to watch the shaft (or at least the line) travel when shot and see the shots land.

Going to need to experiment with moving up from an 11/32" shaft to a 3/8" shaft. Either way, going to add another wrap of line as I'm pretty confident this can shoot flat past 25 feet (the current length of the line at 2.5 wraps).
