I ordered some custom bands from prime line. Same ones Harry shoots. When ur ready, let me know. I will be in Key West today working. I go down there once every 2 weeks. Let me know if you want me to bring you some.
Hi I have spoken to Gabriele who builds the Denton 120 and he says that the standard setting now is shaft 8x1400mm and bands 62-64cm which is almost 400%. I have ordered one...I hope i can pull the bands which I am sure even with the rest tab will be heavy considering that I am only 5'8"
I have heard great thinghs about the Denton 120, there is a nice contribution http://www.spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=158301 of a recent trip in Panam where they used Denton 120 with 8mm shafts, twin floppers but with standard band lenghts to shoot hugee garoupas and cubeiras...if you google videocean they have also conducted pool tests of several guns and the Denton 120 was the fastest speed m/s with 8mm 2 16mm@ 400x...more than with 3 14mm and more than Abellan roller with single 19mm...very interesting gun...
Have you changed the settings or tried the 8mm shaft? I think probably the original set up may be the best in flexibility to diferent situation with perhaps some 8mm with slip tip for deeper reef or ligt BW?
Hi I have very much enjoyed reading your posts. Which guns do you have now? which one do you use most and with what settings?
I have a cressi carbon 90, a riffe Euro 110 and I am now looking for a go-o gun for Panama's waters which is not too difficult to handle on the reef or with not great visibility while at the same time has the capacity to carry a 7.5 or 8mm shaft when I need extra punch for bigger game but not necessarily a pure blue water since I am also waiting for an Ulusub 165 and hope that when Jon comes back I will be able to get one...any suggestions?
