Re: Small id bands dyneema knots popping out

x2 what GR said. Inserts are the best for small I.D. rubber or the 2.8mm Neptonics dyneema. Just use dish soap to get it in.

Re: The keys travel

May can be really good for fish but so-so with weather. Some Mays are completely blown out.

June and July are the best for fish and weather with winds staying calm for weeks on end.

August is...

Re: Special thanks to Majdq8 for his contribution in 2017

I'll pile on this as well. The praise is well deserved. I only hope is silence has been from being busy diving and with life in general and not from being discouraged.

Re: Abellan denton 120 (2017) reel replacement

The 90 has a lot less wood than the bigger guns and same amount of hardware so I don't think you're going to get the same results.

It's up to you but I would not change the shooting...

Re: Abellan denton 120 (2017) reel replacement

Both my Denton 120 and Albacore 130 float with Aussie reels on with shaft in and GoPro mount attached. They both sink very very slowly with the GoPro attached from what I remember.

Re: 2 or 3 wraps

2 wraps. I believe the 110cm I used to cut the shooting line 20' 6" so it'll be about 21' or more for the 120cm (I've never measured it). 21' plus a 61" shaft, slip-tip, you're at 25+ feet, that gun...

Re: Abellan Denton Model Variations

This is a much older version with the metal butt extension. There have been 2 new models since then. The model after that had a wood butt and then eventually got a wider mech, I believe 10mm. As the...

Re: Andre Accuracy

He can still keep and use those. Put them away in the closet until you need bands again. Or cut them to proper length and take them as spares in case a wishbone breaks, pulls out, etc.

Re: Andre Accuracy

It may reduce power supplied but it may increase power to the shaft. Even with an enclosed track the recoil will dissipate energy into you if the gun is not proper for the 3 band load and leave you...

Re: new hatch super gremlin review

Sorry but I agree 100% with Sea_Archer.

Re: Thoughts on Abellan Albacore 130 vs Bleutec Oceanborn 125 & King Cobra

No problem. I have no idea how they turned sideways.

The muzzle seemed normal to me. I only have shot it a few times with that shaft, it's an 8mm. I have shot it quite a bit with an 8.7mm shaft...

Re: Thoughts on Abellan Albacore 130 vs Bleutec Oceanborn 125 & King Cobra

Here you go. I also agree the Albacore is not for small fish. The grouper in my avatar I shot with the Denton 120, through the head. Stoned and strung. It also has plenty of power. 80#
