Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

And to turn this very valid argument upside down - this is actually the exact reason why I would consider a laser...;-)
But only as a tool in the pool, and only to make sure I aim in the exact same...

Re: Harassed by a shark: a dilemma

I'll try to remember that one, Jon.
I dived a spot in Indo last year and after some deeper dives I moved inshore just on the inside of some small pinnacles which the waves broke against. The place...

Re: Japanese spearguns (local manufacture)

Yeah, and even polespears are supposedly illegal in certain places now. But it can vary from one tiny little "precinct" to the next.
I actually built a Japanese inspired polespear for a trip to...

Re: Japanese spearguns (local manufacture)

It's true that very few spearos use guns in Japan but not true that it is not allowed. I've actually dived with a a local, who used a gun;-). But as Pete says, it has a lot to do with where you are...

Re: Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

Congrats on the decision - let us hear how it all goes:)

As for the argument of who speaks well of which guns, it seems there is almost a direct correlation between how much a spearo spends on his...

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

I don't think the wavelength of Bluetooth can "punch" through water at all - pity really as Bluetooth, the protocol, was named after a Danish viking king, haha;-). As far as I know, none of the...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Hi Ross,
Great to hear from you:)
Sadly, there aren't captions on my pics on the site, but I have had so many great moments with these amazing women and have proper background stories for most of...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Yes, the Ama and Haenyeo are very much sisters in culture and spirit, but the Ama seem to get all the glory. But the real story is that there are pretty much none left in Japan, whereas in S. Korea -...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

Yeah, moving to Asia honestly opened my eyes to how important it is that we start really farming seafood - in a sustainable matter. I mean, we don't shoot wild buffalo on the prairies any longer, so...

Re: Timber spearguns from Asia

The actual location might still be in China. A ton of Taiwanese and HK companies produce in Fujian and Guangdong province but show their original/HQ company addresses to the outside world since it...

Re: China's own technology spearguns

I think it's fairly established that the Taiwanese fishing fleet is pretty much roaming the world with impunity. Have been so for a few decades by now. I sometimes come across reports of poaching in...

Re: Carbon Wrap

I realized I have been using bag "sleeves" most of the time - it's just that they are 1m wide, haha. Anyways, I haven't really had big leaks on those either. But for smaller parts, I have since...

Re: Carbon Wrap

Yep, the vast majorities of laminating epoxies have zero UV protection in them. So far, I have decided not to care - but the hazing on my last resin was a bummer.
I got you on the rotissirie, I...

Re: Carbon Wrap

All good points. And yup, it's probably just a tiny leak somewhere along the tacky tape.

Yes, peel ply was specifically made so that you could do secondary bonding without having to prep the...

Re: Carbon Wrap

Good info, Majd! It's cool to have all this in one thread. I had been wondering about the heat shrink and it's great to have been saved the headache of trying it out.
I've mentioned it before -...

Very much so, this is exactly the type that Mikel and I mentioned - and the type I have. I have the smallest possible one as for our purposes, you really don't need anything else. It's actually also...

Re: Carbon Wrap

I agree. I don't know how much vacuum a vacuumer pulls, but I doubt that it is enough.
Some people who do huge parts, like boat hulls or DIY aero parts start with a vacuumer just to evacute most...

Can't help this one as you are right about the rest, but plenty of guys manage to get leak free bags, period;-). It's not super easy, but it's certainly not impossible either. Even I have managed....

Re: New Abellan Denton 2019

Afaik, these guns would not be coming out of Spain but the US. Something like a licensing collaboration, possibly.
Last I heard, they had bought an expensive CNC machine and were getting that...

Re: Custom Roller Gun

Nice looking build and great with some history behind the wood.
Quick question, you measure distance to target from the tip of the spear?

Re: Soft Shackles for floatline rigs. Anybody use them?

I've made a few for the attachment point at the handle and onto the floatline, and will probably do more in the future. I like the simplicity and how quiet they are - no metal clanging against metal.

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

A Danish engineer and spearo did this some years ago just for fun. He said some species bolted, others didn't. Sadly, I can't recall which ones weren't bothered...
