Re: Looking for new wetsuit.

I just received my custom elios wetsuit the other day. Tried it on and must say it's better fitting than the general sized ones. Heard good things about the Polosub as well. Polosub has a pee tube...

Re: Anyone try Interceptor speargun?

I think it's a really nice gun. Very thoughtful on how they designed it all. I like the cutouts for the bands and the notches they hook into. I'm guessing that small orange wishbone loop is to take...

Re: Best Railgun/Pipe gun handle

If looking at the Pathos DII handle, I would recommend getting the universal grip, vs a right or left hand grip. The right/left hand grips create a long reach for the index finger to pull the...

Re: Metal wishbone FAILURE

Yikes. Glad you're okay. I've always been leery about using metal wishbones for this reason and this seems to reinforce that. While not the same thing, I recently fractured my finger when it got...

Re: Gladiator Spartacus V2 120

gspearguns, Very nice work! The fit and finish on everything is beautiful.
Are the reel and invert pulley custom made or of a particular brand? I noticed you have two loops near the muzzle to...

Until Andrew's account issue is resolved, I'll just post up his latest responses I got from him.

In response to Deep_Six about the mech "The mech on the gun is smooth. The line release could use...

Re: Carbonia 115x6

Andrew texted me earlier that he wasn't able to respond to this thread, mentioning he was locked out. In response to my question about the bands, the gun came with 3 pairs of 16mm Rob Allen bands on...

Re: My Invert Roller

I ordered and received a 7.5 mm Addiction Spear from Dean Koutras. It's threaded 6mm, 148 cm in length. I've never ordered a custom spear before, but I was very pleased with the quality. I'm...

Re: Carbonia 115x6

That's a nice gun man. Looks very well thought out and made. I've been using my 6 banded invert in the reefs a lot this year (without a top band) and it's been doing well for me. Do you know the...

Re: Big Island Spearos

I'm tied up this week unfortunately. Yeah, definitely check out the Hawaii Spearfishing Facebook page and ask. You might get someone to jump in with.

Re: My Invert Roller

Reporting back, no thrumming with the bands loaded. I tried moving the gun faster through the water with both hands and still no thrumming.

Re: My Invert Roller

The trigger mech and the pull is still smooth and functioning normally. The bands may look powerful with 8 of them there, but the pulleys reduce their force by half.

The total estimated force on...

Re: My Invert Roller

In my opinion, if you can get a classic band setup to shoot consistently and accurately and with enough power for the game you're after, the classic band setup would be without question the go-to...

Re: My Invert Roller

That's a good question. While I didn't notice any, I didn't turn my gun much in the water. I'll definitely pay attention to that next time I take it out.

Thinking of my reef invert, I don't...

Re: My Invert Roller

I built another invert roller and I thought I'd update my thread (just so it's all in one place for me). The following are the specs:

- 120 cm cuttled barrel, carbon, gloss finish (bought from...

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

After the foam stopped expanding, was it easy to remove the excess foam from inside your barrel for your muzzle or handle fitment?

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

I got it from Makoa in the gloss finish (vs the matte). In the end my barrels get scratched a bit so the prettiness kinda wears away, although I suppose I can always polish it a bit, haha.

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

I took videos of me shooting the gun, so I might have a picture still I can nab off of the videos. To answer your question though, the bands rub the belly of the barrel. The bands have the ability...

Re: What I did with Makoa's barrel

I also bought a barrel from him. I thought of the idea to build another invert roller, but one that was geared more towards pelagics. The following is the setup you see in the pictures below:

Re: Neptonics custom shafts

How's the straightness of the shaft when you roll it?

Re: Cuttled Barrel Ballasting

I just want to be clear that I'm not just packing clothes (or whatever is used) and not plugging the ends. I do plan to permanently plug and seal the interior cavity so it remains dry.

Does the 4" PVC also fit your handle? Good idea on re-purposing.

Re: Cuttled Barrel Ballasting

I've got the internal volume at 68.37 cu in and could probably test it out on a smaller scale with pvc pipe to see how that goes. I like that it would be more uniform than my clothes, haha.
