Re: Cobia Adventure


For a superior slip tip that will laugh at that kind of abuse contact Mori at (310) 628-8082 or Kitto at (661) 400-5223. They build the state of the art slip tips.

Thanks Freedro, I will call them to hear more about their products. But for now, I'm sticking with the JBL that has landed many fish for me over the years. My problem with the cobia was buying a cheap knock-off tip that morning bacause the LDS had run out of my favorite JBL The rock tip aspect of the JBL is important for my area where we shoot fish out of holes, caves and artificial reef structure quite often. Thanks for the input.

Re: Cobia Adventure

Wow. I am relatively new to spearfishing, and that video was absolutely awesome. Thanks for the video. Until recently (past 10 minutes) I didn't have any desire to pass the 120/130ft mark, but I am definately going to look into it now!!

Re: Cobia Adventure

Hey Freedro! I dive with Tony on occasion. I use a Riffe - Ice pick slip tip. Does your tip compare to the Riffe? You wouldn't happen to have any pictures would you? Thanx!

I saw Ray Odor hit one in the head that was around 65 pounds. We were 10 miles off St. Pete. Ray came back to the boat with a bent shaft and lost the fish. The skull was so hard that it bent the shaft and didn't penetrate.

Re: Cobia Adventure

Awsome video! You are going to have to make some cash and set us all up with video systems like that. Too cool!

Re: Cobia Adventure

I just saw this video for the first time today. I know, i know, welcome to last month inlet.

Very cool. The first thing I thought when you shot the cobe and it headed south, was "man you better get a grip on that gun!!!" Looks like he tangled himself on some structure and beat himself up before you gave him the dagger of mercy.

Re: Cobia Adventure

Very cool video. What type of video equipment and housing are you using, and is it mounted on your helmet?

I hate watching videos like that. When I'm at work. Which seems like all the time. Thanks for letting us live vicariously down the stock of your gun.

Re: Cobia Adventure

Eventhough I am a freediver and I know I will be never reach those kind of depths. Props to you and your friends. Those are some big cojones you guys have. Also what a great video very crafty to be able to shoot the gun and not miss anything with the camera. Great job.

Re: Cobia Adventure

Sweet video Tony. Those deep wrecks just seem so peaceful and alien in the videos. That technica/deep diving is definitely something I want to get into. Too bad about the cobia, 1 bent shaft and a broken slip tip and 1/2 on the fish. Not a bad dive. Solo diving that deep must be an experience all it's own...very freeing i bet.
