Re: 17.5mm rubber?

Got back from the coast last night. Got a chance to do a quick shore dive and chase a few fish with the RA70. I tried out the 17.5 primeline rubber. Itís cut to 230% loaded to the first notch, and...

Re: 17.5mm rubber?

Thatís a very good point! Right now everything I have is Primeline rubber, but Iíve had a few batches in the past that varied a lot. I think Iíll just start at 22Ē and trim it down from there. ...

Re: 17.5mm rubber?

It is indeed good stuff! So, silly question, but as to cutting 17.5 to length. Iím thinking I would just go halfway between what I would cut 16mm to and what I would cut 19mm to? As an example, on...

Re: Advice for a new 70cm gun.

Max Iím a bit embarrassed to admit it, but I already have a C-0 and use it often. I just donít shoot it very well. I love it for hole hunting and bad vis, and on a good day, can even do well with...

Re: Advice for a new 70cm gun.

Yeah good guns, but not for me. Dive with a buddy and tried his out, but just didnít care for it.

One big advantage to the RAís is that spare shafts are easy to get and fairly inexpensive. I...

17.5mm rubber?

The gun I find the most useful here in NorCal is my little Rob Allen 70. On a gun that small Iím a fan of just a single band. With a 7mm shaft, a 19mm band cut to 23 inches gives the most accuracy....

Re: Spectra wishbones for small ID bands?

Re: Spectra wishbones for small ID bands?

Thank you sir!
That’s actually pretty much how I’ve made the bands for my Riffe guns, but using much thicker line and dipping the knots in 5 minute epoxy. I tried the same technique awhile back...

Re: Cooking Mono... Spaghetti, I Meant Cooking Spaghetti (A Quarantine Project)

Re: Cooking Mono... Spaghetti, I Meant Cooking Spaghetti (A Quarantine Project)

I think I see the problem with the stuff I tried to dye red. I looked at the packages of mono I use. It’s Momoi leader material and is “smoke blue” to start out, which is kind of translucent blue. ...

Re: Cooking Mono... Spaghetti, I Meant Cooking Spaghetti (A Quarantine Project)

Looking back, I recall now that I once tried to dye some clear mono red, but the best I could get was a light orange color, so now Iím jealous of how nicely your red mono turned out!:thumps:

Re: Cooking Mono... Spaghetti, I Meant Cooking Spaghetti (A Quarantine Project)

I’ve done this many times with Rit dye. I buy clear mono off fishing websites and dye it black. It’s worked really well and the color seems to penetrate because it never fades out. Fun project,...
