Re: Shipping Speargun / Shaft Estimate

Depends on the gun, obviously a pipe gun style is going to be cheaper than a larger wood gun. Best bet is to remove the handle if possible and put it into a pvc tube and ship like that. For shipping...

Re: Advice on where to buy carbon barrels

That's the handle/muzzle I put in mine which is why I ordered in that size.

Re: Advice on where to buy carbon barrels

If you guys want to post the quantity and length you're interested in I'll shoot her an email and get a price quote on the barrels and on shipping to S.Fl.

Re: Advice on where to buy carbon barrels

I've ordered through Alibaba you have to contact them through Alibaba then they'll send you their PayPal address to place the order. Nautilus is almost the same price if you're just buying a single...

Re: One band on Pathos laser pro 120?

It came out less because I figured I'd have to replace the shaft that an off the shelf gun came with anyways.

Here's a link to the CF barrels, they'll sell a single one but you have to pay for...

Re: One band on Pathos laser pro 120?

The gun I built is essentially a Pathos 120cm (bought the CF barrel on Alibaba and saved about $200 from retail putting it together myself). I've set it up with two 14mm small ID and a single 16mm...

Re: Riffe Mid-Handle Bottom - 20mm band length?

The advantage of the loop setup (or inserts) though is that if the wishbone fails for some reason you can retie the knot to the loop or just grab another short piece of line from your reel and retie...

Re: Band stretch. Where is the upper limit?

I have an almost identical setup (125cm band stretch) single band 16mm small ID at around 400% and can echo almost everything you said. With a single wrap it's so quick to reload, coupled with...

Re: Small ID pole spear band?

What did you use for a loop to put your hand in to hold the band. Mind sharing some pictures, I have a Neritic Big Blue as well and thinking about doing an identical setup.

Re: Who went out for Hogfish, any thoughts???

Hogfish are somewhat unique in this regard. Many other fish are the other way around with females being the larger of the species which is why we see slot limits for fish like snook allowing larger...

Re: Who went out for Hogfish, any thoughts???

You could pretty reliably get a limit of hogs on patch reefs off Miami in an hour last year, trouble is they would have been 12-14" fish.

Hopefully we see more and larger fish in the coming years,...

Re: Towing a Freediver - Techniques?

You might want something more neutrally buoyant than a RA float if you're trying the saddle idea. I've seen how a RA float acts when towed behind a boat and you'd be in for quite the ride.

Re: Towing a Freediver - Techniques?

A wakeboard rope with a triangle shaped bridle is pretty easy to use. You can put the bar that you'd hold in the crook of your arm or under your armpit to relieve some strain on your hands. Although...

Do you have any tips for finding side scan maps on that app? I've searched their database and only come up with a single side scan.

Re: Polespear Build - Titanium?

Assuming I'm building a 10' pole Ti seemingly offers a nice mass/volume ratio with the added bonus of likely not snapping or breaking should...

Re: Devoto sub handle and rob allen tube?

This says it fits 26mm ID barrels, not sure what the ID of the Rob Allen barrel you have that you're trying to match it to.

My thinking has kind of been in line with yours in that machining would be the hardest part. Any thoughts on just using an 8' rod (1/2") and just machining male threads at each end to screw on a butt...
