If you are interested, give me a day or so and I will look through my spares box as I could have a spare adapter. I am sure I have seen one there somewhere.

Mike.

Awesome! Thanks! I am about to resort to taking the thing into the hardware store and let them find something thatíd fit.

JetBoy,
I found a spare plug. Its a black male threaded plug with a extra small hole for the flag pole.
If you cannot find one locally to match Rob's specifications, PM me with your address and I will send it USPS fixed rate.
Consider it a Xmas gift.
Be Safe Out There.
Mike.

PS if you are close to LA did you try the Freedive Shop? Greg/Vanessa should have them in stock as well.

Re: Rob Allen float flag rig?

Pleasure Rob.
Give my regards to Jeremy and the other old-fart spearos, too numerous to mention.

Rob,
Oops, I have a feeling that I may have sent the wrong plug!
I have at least 3 * different series of the RA hard floats in my collection.
The original PVC covered hard float and then 2 * foam blown floats, one is cylindrical and the other is a flattened cylinder.
The plug I sent is for the completely circular hard float, as opposed to the latest flattened float.
Did they have the same thread for the flag pole?
Thanks
Mike.
