View Full Version : Band sizing clarification for Panther gun

06-23-2009, 07:30 PM
Can someone please confirm to me that when purchasing a band that is labeled as 18'' x 3/4'' - - - - the 18'' is measured from knot to knot, correct?

This would exclude the wishbone and and rubber between the knots that is on the wishbone. Sorry for such a simple question.

I used some sizing instructions and it comes to 17.8'' so I'm going to go with 18'' 's on this old vintage ScubaPro Panther 2 gun I have. Actually not sure if three 3/4'' one will fit the muzzle. Might have to go with three 5/8'''s instead.
Adding a Rob Allen composite reel spooled with 100 ft of line and want to get the absolute maximum power out if it that I can.

Does anyone have any input on putting oversized bands on a gun like this?
Up until now I've only done smaller rock and reef shooting - - going to deeper water in 3 weeks.

Best Regards,
