Re: Ermes Avatar speargun handle

Thanks. I understand the the right handed thumb rest is removable which will become a universal. Will there be a left handled thumb rest available?

Thanks, Man. Yeah, super stoked and super grateful for you and Mario. With my current Titan Elites and these new Spartan Elites, I have a totally stacked division.

Regarding my carbon barrels, mine are not foam filled.

The problem with the foam, as you mentioned, is that the required density needed to withstand the pressure at depth
will be such that it will increase the weight of the barrel and throw off the balance. Right now, the gun is perfectly balanced.

So, instead of foam, I have my own water stopper plugs that I install. I use 3M 5200 to keep the plugs from migrating while under pressure.
We did some earlier depth testing and without the 5200, the water did not penetrate past the water stoppers, but the pressure at depth pushed the water stoppers inward.


thanks
dano
Is the Mako Spartan handle the exact same thing as the Ermes ? Let me know when the Spartan Carbon Roller is back in stock =)

Same handle. We will announce when the carbon barrels arrive so we can start selling the new gun! Thanks for the inquiry!
