Re: Inverted Roller Build

Regarding the risk of attracting sharks, it's definitely on my mind, but I figure the risk is relatively low. First, the gun will be rigged for breakaway, so if anything gets too curious I could always just let go.

I once had a sailfish make a beeline for a throw flasher tucked in the front of my weight belt (i.e. right over my crotch) and only turn aside at the last minute. Got a great shot and landed the fish, but definitely scared the shit out of me.

I took the shiny stickers off my fins for the same reason, hate the idea of something sneaking up on me, but at least with the gun I figure I'd be relatively safe(ish) in clear water.

Love the idea of bringing a skittish wahoo or tuna in just a few extra feet closer, but will probably keep my head on a swivel when in the water with this thing.

Would you guys really be that concerned diving with something like this? I have always dove blue water with throw flashers hanging from my belt (when not in the water) and that seems like the same risk.
