Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

C4 originally used single strand bands mounted in a crossbar muzzle, same principle as socket mount bands that give in-line pull. Originally in euroguns which were all tube guns a vee shaped wire...

Re: Rob Allen Inverted Roller

A problem with that handle for adding another band anchor at the rear and under the barrel is the line release under the grip. On a simple rollergun it is OK as the shooting line keeps away from the...

Re: Omer discontinue their pneumatic guns

If you want one now is the time to buy it as they are clearing them out. The "One Air" I bought has now had another 30 bucks knocked off the price (Oh darn). There are a few sellers selling them at...

Re: Rob Allen Inverted Roller

Inverted roller side pulley halves the tension in the wishbone cable because the other half goes to the cable muzzle anchor, so you need two bands to replace one to get the equivalent of one band. ...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

I expect that the free publicity, over 12,000 views, had something to do with it.

Re: Omer discontinue their pneumatic guns

Anyone with one of these Omer/Sporasub guns needs to periodically check what is going on under that removable rear handle. These photos explain why and were taken by Diving Gecko....

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

With water lubrication there is nothing in it, what you don't want is the band ends skating on the barrel, but with the tumble home on the top deck that does not happen as the wishbone approaches the...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Auction is how the word for spear translates on the on-line translators. The circular headboard must refer to the band anchor hole as the guns have used circular bands for years. Cord wishbones...

Re: Gladiator Bestiarius 105-110

Interesting to see the band troughs for the top band. Nice blended curves everywhere give the gun a molded appearance, very symmetrical and smooth. Highly contoured are the words that I am looking...

Are you running the shooting line through the lower line wrap hook with the reel fitted?

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Maybe a combination of not putting too much emphasis on “feeding the chooks” and “build it and they will come” (with money) regardless.

Old sayings. Heads blown off and guts torn open evidence stays on the bottom. Deaths at sea remain at sea.

Re: What to do with old Swimaster Voit? Shaft diameter?

You can use 9/16" bands on the Magnum, that is what the guns were fitted with originally.

Re: What to do with old Swimaster Voit? Shaft diameter?

If you don't want it then give it to some kid who wants to start spearfishing, it seems to be all there, so not really sure why you are asking. JBL haters have yet to come out of the woodwork.
