Re: my 145 denton

I don't like how Abellan guns shot, but this gun is beautiful!

Why don’t you like the way it shoots?

Re: my 145 denton

Too much recoil for my taste. I tried a friend's one and almost ripped my hand off my arm!

And swinging it in the water is another story...

But that's me. They look pretty and some people loves them.

Okay that makes sense.
I conclude significant, difficult to control recoil (unless spearq8’s handle mod).

Difficult tracking.

Do the other Denton users feel the same?

My Denton 120 does not recoil at all. Bands are original 15mm (or so) stretched at 370%. Handle has not been moded. Purchased it this year.

Hi Fred,
How do you like the Hunt Maxi reel? Does it free spool easily with no control?
Does the brake work OK?

Do you mean that you damaged the thread on a 50 kg tuna?

my Denton doesn't have much recoil. What gun do you usually shoot?
