Hopefully the captain will chime in and let us know if 02 was available and administered.

I think this thread is providing valuable lessons for all of us and hopefully the open discussion of...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Re: Conditions after Hurricane Michael in Clearwater

Fish often get very “chewy’ after a big storm. If there is no vis the prospect of good fishing may be a good enough reason to risk an offshore run.

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

I doubt aluminum will expand enough to crack the plastic but lateral stresses will likely split it if it does not have any glass in it. However, wood expansion can definitely crack it. A good example...

Rogers on that Pete! Another thing I noticed from the picture of the China grip assembly you posted previously in this thread is........ the molded plastic is very smooth and glossy. This indicates...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Yep, the tip in the middle is the one they copied. Also, I believe the trigger mechanism they copied was the original version and not the more recent V3 version. Pete, maybe you could confirm my...

Well said:thumps: I am just guessing on this but I believe most diving related injuries/emergencies are caused by panic. Panic is often induced by a lack of proper training on how to deal with...

Re: Teak Oil Finish for Mahogany?

I agree on the Tung oil Wood Guy. I tried Watco Teak Oil but it took forever to dry enough to sand it smooth. Tung Oil dries enough to sand smooth in 24 to 48 hours and has a nice soft luster/gloss...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Pete, if you ever run low on Sea Hornet triggers let me know. I have almost 1000 of them with steel springs in them. Sea Hornet send me a batch of grips that had steel springs instead of stainless...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Rogers on that Pete. Replacing the spring is not super difficult for those of us who are very familiar with design. In addition, you may want to increase the depth of the the two notches in the...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Good tip Pete. I had proper springs made for the sample guns I received and the triggers then performed well.

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Probably a good decision! The scary this is they will continue to sell these spearguns into the USA market. It’s unfortunate because it’s a very cheap and easy fix and the overall quality of the gun...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Yes, all three of those spearguns use the same spearshaft. Sea Hornet and Biller use the Wally Gibbins design trigger. Ocean Rhino uses a totally different designed trigger. The ocean Rhino trigger...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

It appears they did not. As you can see the natural arch in the spring is not even in the center of the spring, it is about 25% off to the left of center. Also, the excessive length of the spring...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Yes, Fred Biller did patent his version of the Sea Hornet in the USA and he also patented the current AB Biller design in 1985. However, both of those patents have since expired.

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Does the barrel of this China version have an end plug to keep the barrel from flooding or does it have a foam insert?
