Re: What To Do About Rubber Rot (gummy bungees)?

Line anchor bungees are all that is required in some situations, depends on what you are shooting and where in terms of obstructions and potential line snags in the water around you. I use a reel on...

Re: This fish is not invasive but clingy!!

Remoras often hitch a ride on sharks, but sharks have better uses than transport as can be seen here after conversion to foodstuffs....

Re: 2 shaft speargun, over & under, ebay

As the sliding trigger bar is pretty much set the best option would have been to use the roller sear tooth design of the old US Divers "Sea Hunter" spearguns which finished up with Div-Ak. There a...

Re: 2 shaft speargun, over & under, ebay

No, these photos come from the eBay auction which I saved and recovered from an old computer drive, plus some photos provided by Ron Mullins of the gun opened up to look at its innards. We were...

Re: 2 shaft speargun, over & under, ebay

Just found this thread with a search on “Ace XX” as I could not remember how far back it was. The eBay link at the beginning is now toast, so here is what the "Ace XX" looks like....

Re: For sell SEAL 130 new and never used!

Yeah, well this one is as "multi-coque" (cock) as you can get, but it was probably useless as a speargun. Never bought one, but Ron Mullins did as an example of "how-not-to-do-it" for his museum.

Re: For sell SEAL 130 new and never used!

The gun has yet to arrive as I requested that it be delayed to avoid the pre-Christmas log jam of parcels that nearly stops the various mail systems in their tracks. Something to consider when...

Re: Sea cucumber recipe?

Yes, eating other parts of the chicken like livers and guts and the legs and feet are just a con job to use up all the scraps. One of my associates was an honoured guest at a Chinese banquet in...

Re: Huntmaster Spearguns

Although what I think is a separate entity, the business template may not be all that different to OceanPro which is more scuba related and has no spearguns listed....

Re: Huntmaster Spearguns

I think it is sourced from overseas as my guess is "Huntmaster" is a marketing entity set up by Australian divers, but none of that gear would be made in Australia. MVD is a Greek company, but my...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

Meandros have their own roller tooth trigger mechanism, but here it looks like the roller tooth engages the side slots in the housing, so this will need the eurogun ramped or curved spear tail notch...

Re: Sea cucumber recipe?

They are prized in Asia, but are not particularly flavoursome on their own, instead they act as a carrier for other flavours infused in them. Much like pasta is eaten for the sauces and fillings...

Re: Huntmaster Spearguns

This is the "Huntress" model, although it does not state that on the barrel sticker. Guns come in 75, 90, 100 and 110 cm lengths....

Huntmaster Spearguns

A new line of spearfishing equipment has appeared which popped up on a recent search of spearing gear. Their "Huntmaster" speargun looks surprisingly like the MVD spearguns, however there is also a...

Re: Rob Allen Tests Stainless Trigger Mechs

Slamming a shaft tail to latch it should not be necessary if the trigger mechanism is properly designed. A problem with dipping sear tooth trigger mechanisms is there is no backing projection on the...

Re: Rob Allen Tests Stainless Trigger Mechs

The Rob Allen “Vecta” trigger mechanism (tested with a non-standard metal trigger) appears to have about 5 to 1 gearing in the sear lever, therefore for a 120 kg loading on the mechanism’s sear tooth...

Re: Rob Allen Tests Stainless Trigger Mechs

When you think about it spearguns are the most powerful weapons that run all the propulsive force through their trigger mechanism, nothing else comes close. Say you have a six band gun with 100...
