I ordered the woody mag Monday, I figured there must be guys my size using them. I plan on getting in the water and practicing with it before I go. I'll let you know how the trip went If conditions allow us to go.
Thanks for all of your help. Mike
One more question and I'll stop bugging you. I'm 5 foot 7, do you think the woody mag is going to be too long for me to load? Should I consider the sawed off, or is that not enough gun for the rigs? Thanks, Mike
Hey, I'm totally in love with my woody magnums. I've shot the pipe guns for years and this is a huge improvement. I use it with a gulf slip tip (modified by me) and a riding rig. I also use 2 wraps of cable and 2-22" bands and 1-24" band. Hope this helps, after you've rigged it make sure to try it in a pool and if you have any problems just call. I may be able to help.
Louis, I'm new to the board, and will be making my first spearfishing trip to the rigs next month, I've been on one rig dive while on a Flower Garden trip so I have a taste of what it will be like. I've been trying to educate myself by reading on the forum and I must thank you for posting " 100 ways" you probally saved another life here, thanks.
The reason I'm contacting you is I need to buy a gun and I wanted some advice from someone who knows and I didn't want to hear from all the idiots on the board. should I get the gulf magnum or get the woody magnum and put a gulf slip tip on it? I know the pipe gun would be easier to repair if it got bent but I was wondering if the new trigger on the woody would be better or is the one on the XHD ok? Any advice would be appreciated. I think for the money the JBL is the way to go.
Thanks, Mike P.S. I live in Pineville and will be going out with Divers Destination out of Lafayette.
