this 6' came in after falling out of a truck on the freeway. It was run over a couple times before it was recovered. Needless to say, it either needed some work or it was going in the trash.

I ground off the male 6mm thread as it was no longer useable. I dreamed a hole in a GAT-KU adapter big enough for the stainless rod to slip fit into, epoxied the two together, installed a new band, and a custom shrink-wrap grip.

Its not a GAT-KU, but it sure was fun turning something that was going to the trash into fully-functional polespear.

The customer sent me some pics, I thought I'd pass em along.

Nice job Dustin. I have a JBL spear here that I'm adding a weighted rear section to add mass and one of my paralyzers as well.

Is that a Gat-ku paralyzer just spread out?

Dustin:

I Gat-kued one of my blue water pole spears by adding the carbon fiber shaft and front end to one of my large diameter poles. It is working great. I will show you at the pole spear workshop at the BlueWild.

Yeah,
they actually work best spread out an inch or so in diameter.

Dustin,

How do you spread them out?
