Aquagat Speargun Art

Here is something a bit different, a mid-handle inverted roller where the band battery flanks the grip handle. Various colors are available, but the pink version caught my eye....

Re: Abellan and Orca Evo (same but different?)

The downward angled band anchor hole and band elevator ramp are seen more clearly in this photo.
I wonder why the trigger finger guard is not longer, say something like this.

Re: Abellan and Orca Evo (same but different?)

Unless you take out a design registration anyone can copy anything. Then you have to enforce it through legal action, which is very costly. Most just try to fill the market by making enough guns...

Re: Abellan and Orca Evo (same but different?)

Muzzle for band wrapping in terms of elevation looks OK (as no band troughs on the top deck)....

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

You get more stretch travel for the same force on thinner bands. Bands can be thought of like an onion cut in cross section with rubber tubes of increasing diameter stacked on each other. More...

By way of absolute contrast a French postcard from the very distant past.

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

I watched that at low speed, but the moment of shot blurs the action with the camera on the gun.

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

They don't try to overpower the shaft with too many bands as the inverted rollers halve the tension in the wishbone, except for the kicker band, as you know. The multi-band ballasted guns place a...

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

A speargun needs a track for loading so that the spear can be pushed into the sear box using the track as a guide. The fitting of tracks certainly improved tube guns. With open muzzle guns you need...

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

If you click sequence that photo series B1, B2, B3 then you can see the gun hand is pushed back as evidenced by the drag on the cuff of the glove causing it to bell out as the gun begins to tilt up,...

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

Here are the images combined with a white line through the shaft and a red line through the gun. A flick comparator is a handy way to look for movement, unlike this image, but it allows measurements...

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

If you click through these photos look at your hand and the cuff of your glove to see what is going on with the recoil. The timing clock readout is a bit misleading, but look at the red line...

Re: Bleutec linerelease

You may have to if there is a nut that falls down when you undo the pivot screw, but unlike us you have the gun directly in front of you, so you are in the best position to work it out. If you look...

Looks like one of them here, may be a screw if it has a slotted head.

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

All spearguns create a couple trying to twist gun up around your hand.

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

Lens distortion tends to banana that image. The best way to judge what is going on is to see the whole gun and some constant reference horizon that does not move in the photo frame. In your earlier...

Re: Bleutec linerelease

Spearq8 failed to look at your photos or he would have realized that your gun's line release is at the back of the mechanism. As you can see it has a window on either side of the mech and you should...

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

Eurogun models which you shoot with one hand, and maybe two if you cup one hand over the other, will always lift unless the gun is heavily ballasted in which case it will not really be a eurogun. ...

Re: Made a 145cm inverter, 10mm shaft

One way to look at it better would be to make a short video loop of the actual shots from this angle and compare them. I have just done the shot at 2.35 seconds.
