MAKO: Q8 SS Inserts for Small ID Latex Bands

Q8 Stainless Steel Wishbone Inserts for small ID (1/16") tubing

Designed by SpearQ8, who is arguably the most well respected authority on speargun kinetics and technology, these stainless steel wishbone
inserts are made specifically for small (1/16") ID tubing, such as the MAKO/Primeline small ID tubing.



These are the best wishbone inserts for small ID tubing that I have seen.

  • You can change your dyneema without re-tying bands (no tools needed)
  • They are easy to install.
  • They won’t pull out.
  • And they keep the water from being siphoned into the bands.
  • These things are awesome!


Warning: Do not use these wishbone inserts for regular ID tubing. They are specifically designed for the MAKO/Primeline small ID tubing.

Helpful hint: Burn a “stop bulb” on each end before tying your knots. These “stop bulbs” provide additional protection against knots slipping.

Re: MAKO: Q8 SS Inserts for Small ID Latex Bands

I would imagine shipping won't be too much either since they're so small.....?

Re: MAKO: Q8 SS Inserts for Small ID Latex Bands

Hey Spear One,


The diameter of the ball is 6.45mm. The shank is actually tapered. At the ball, the diameter of the shank is 2.89mm. At the hole end, the diameter is 2.73mn.

Hey Sealark,


Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Our software system has difficulty calculating shipping on very small items such as this when they are purchased without additional items. I will get that fixed today.

Thanks!


dano

Re: MAKO: Q8 SS Inserts for Small ID Latex Bands

Hey mishu 1984,

Sorry for the delay in responding. I was traveling yesterday.
There are actually two knots that are recommended by SpearQ8.

• single loop
• double loop

In either case, before tying your knot, there are two important requirements.

#1: The bridle material must be stiff, like my South African Wishbone cordage.
I have tested wishbone cordage from many suppliers from around the world and the
South African cordage is the toughest cordage I have found.

#2: You must create a really good size “burn ball” at the end of your cord.
If you are unsure about the integrity of the burn ball, you can add a simple
half hitch knot at the end for added assurance that it will not pull through.


Below is a photo of the burn ball only.


Below is a photo of the burn ball plus a simple half hitch knot.



Single loop Knot:

Step 1:
Thread cordage through hole and create a burn ball at the end.




Step 2: Wrap the cordage around the shank one time and pass the end through the loop that you just created.



Step 3: Pull tight, ensuring the burn ball is well outside of the knot.



NOTE: For additional confidence, you can also tie a ˝ hitch knot on the end after you create your burn ball.


Double loop:


Step 1:
Thread cordage through hole and create a burn ball at the end.



Step 2: Wrap the cordage around the shank two times and pass the end through the two loops that you just created.






Step 3: Pull tight, ensuring the burn ball is well outside of the knot.



Once again, I would like to thank SpearQ8 for sharing these awesome inserts with me.
We are all pretty darn lucky to have him around.

Dive safe,
dano
