Re: QUESTION: Tips&tricks for installing pinned mechs

Hi Mikel
It seems like you have a decent plan and going about it as you describe should work just fine.

Re: buoyancy of Sigalsub Reel Edy 60 mm Carbon?

I don’t think there is a reason to get too worried about this reel. The circular plates are carbon and the whole reel is well made and functions flawlessly. It seems pretty bombproof to me and if the...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

I am sure it shoots just fine in the water and will shoot a plenty of fish as it is. I have no doubt about it’s performance to shoot straight and hard out of the box.
It is just a hobby project to...

Which makes it a 90 cm bandstretch gun. Except that I am now unable to load it to the last sharkfin until I change the band.

Today I received this upgrade kit from C4. It came with a bottle of wine which was a nice gesture from them and instructions on how to cut it to length.
It gives you an additional 20mm of...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

At first I was not too concerned about it but now With more testing experience I do feel the same.

It is not very clear on the picture but the bands are actually angled lying on the face of the...

I understand what you mean Pete.

C4 spearguns in the past always had very specific ways of how the mono has to be wrapped. I was, and still am, under the impression that with the Gladius they...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

One more thing to mention is that the 16mm band is sitting loose in the band hole and therefore the bands whip forward after the shot is fired and tangled with the too long dyneema in front of the...

Got to shoot the Gladius 85 in the pool today with its standard setup.

buoyancy of Sigalsub Reel Edy 60 mm Carbon?

I have the Sigalsub Carbon reel mounted on one my Sigalsub Team Carbon 110. I dont think it has a great influence on buoyancy but it’s hard to tell without checking it. I can’t take it off that...

What C4 may do first is review their manual.

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

I certainly will and have no doubt that the gun will work fine out of the box. It is rather a quest to squeeze All. the potential out of it.
