Re: New Abellan Denton 2019

Yup, as Majd mentioned earlier on, Greekdiver is one of them.

Re: New Abellan Denton 2019

Afaik, these guns would not be coming out of Spain but the US. Something like a licensing collaboration, possibly.
Last I heard, they had bought an expensive CNC machine and were getting that...

Re: Custom Roller Gun

Nice looking build and great with some history behind the wood.
Quick question, you measure distance to target from the tip of the spear?

Re: Soft Shackles for floatline rigs. Anybody use them?

I've made a few for the attachment point at the handle and onto the floatline, and will probably do more in the future. I like the simplicity and how quiet they are - no metal clanging against metal.

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

A Danish engineer and spearo did this some years ago just for fun. He said some species bolted, others didn't. Sadly, I can't recall which ones weren't bothered...

I actually live in China, have a...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Yeah, that stainless steel sling was the one I had in mind.
Of course, there'll be funky tech here. A lot of Chinese didn't grow up with water sports, many can't swim and it's only now that diving...

China's own technology spearguns

Yep. E.g. I am fairly sure Omer makes a lot of their guns here, if not all. They def make fins and other stuff. Wetsuits might be from Thailand or China.



They do make some local wooden guns...

Re: Carbon fiber question

Not sure I understand;-)?
The sleeves come pretty much as long as you want them. They are woven as one long continuous sleeve, though you pay for them per feet/meter.

Don't have much to add other than a thumbs up and a rule of thumb...;-)
First, cudos to Dean for sharing the trick - I think it's something a lot of us have wondered about (and the guns look great)!...

Re: Pneumatic loading help

Hmm, nah. If I was on scuba with the rest of the stuff hanging off of me one more thing might not matter. But freediving - having anything attached to you that you can't remove as easily as a belt is...

Re: Pneumatic loading help

But it doesn't have to be this advanced. As mentioned above, a rope with knots on it should suffice. It has for spearos in the Med for decades.
I will share a handful of pics which are not my own,...

Re: Pneumatic loading help

I am even shorter than the OP and I have used extended loaders quite a bit. They work a charm and I feel longer guns are sometimes easier to load than shorter ones because your "work position" is...

Re: Band choice/stretch for 90cm pipe gun?

If not mistaken, the number I see the most from Majd for Small ID 14-14.5mm is 380%. But i have seen from 360-400%. At 360% you might not get the most out of them and at 400% you might kill them a...

Re: Homemade Hawaiian Sling

Hi Chuuken,
Sorry for digging up this old thread - I was researching slings for a friend.

Re: Small ID pole spear band?

As for the hand strap, I totally agree with Polespearo - no need for couplings, just make it as simple as you can. If you do intend to put a shackle or similar in the "power train" then make sure...

Re: Planning New Bluewater Roller Build - 1 or 2 bands?

That makes sense. I had read page after page on the glory of Abellan guns and when I first saw one in real life I was, even though prepared for it, I was slightly underwhelmed. Simply because it...

Re: Planning New Bluewater Roller Build - 1 or 2 bands?

Hate to say it, but if you are to trust Majd's testing, which I personally do, it seems a well designed two-banded classic gun (very high ergo handle, no ET, no band friction, good trigger) running...

Re: DIY inverted polispast conversion questions

I still haven't ventured onto this path myself as my airguns still have untapped potential but I do like to keep tap on what's happening elsewhere.

As for the bearings, I am fairly sure Roisub's...

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

I guess it is "calibrated" at a given distance where the raised muzzle - from the sight not being at the same height as the muzzle - takes the guess work out of shaft drop? So, if you shoot closer...

Shafts for pneumatic salvimar

Seac should fit, too. But they don't really make great shafts.
But remember these are screw-on tails so for now you still have your original tail-end on your original shaft. You can move that over...

I think the difference is that Breezy got the older Vuoto Air and not the Predathor. Nothing wrong with...
