Re: Thoughts on Abellan Albacore 130 vs Bleutec Oceanborn 125 & King Cobra

Azure Recluse, for Melbourne Australia I would recommend the Abellan Robalo 90 or Denton 100. I have a Denton 120 and live in Victoria, for the price paid, it doesn't get much use. I have a friend...

Re: Meandros b32

Yes, if you want to handle the recoil of an 8mm spear you will need the custom grip.

I tried it with an 8mm and couldn't get it to shoot quite right.

Re: Meandros b32

The distance between the the rear of the handle and the trigger on the B32 isn't that big. Especially after you take off the white rubber handle grip. I find that I can shoot 3" grouping with little...

Re: Meandros b32

Yeah, it just wanted to bite him!

I spoke to him after the coral sea trip and he said the thing that saved him was the spear going through its top jaw and out the back of its head. He said this...

He has both Devoto and Sigal spears. They are in QLD on Stradbroke island.

IMHO you can't go wrong...

Re: To all manufacturers of spearfishing equipment.

Neptonics is great! Just the way it should be, cheaper to buy from the Australian shop, because they imported the gear in a big shipment. If they don't stock it, you can still buy direct.

Re: Meandros b32

The 130 B32 does seem to shoot pretty accurately for me, but it did come with a 7mm Devoto Sub spear 170cm and twin 16mm rubbers at 380%. The stock setup wasn't accurate for me, so as mentioned...

Re: Meandros b32

This video is a friend of mine, Tibor. I told him to change to 14mm small id bands at 350% to help with that recoil, but I think spearq8 is right about the grip and left shift.

I have my 130 b32...

Re: Hunt Spring Shaft

Hunt do not sell directly to the retail market. You will need to buy from an authorized dealer. Like Deepbluesub. The spring shafts are only available in limited sizes and didn't suit my needs. I...

Having shot the RA and Pathos, I now own the Meandros B32. It's a great gun IMHO.

Re: Meandros b32

The 115cm is not a big gun but it's too much gun for 5m vis. In 15m vis hunting around the reef it would be great.

I'm pretty sure the barrels on the B32 are the same as Edge Super Frog guns. I'm...

Re: Alemanni Demultiplied Rollerguns

This is why the booster band is needed? To give more of 1:1 ratio from the dead start.

Re: Alemanni Demultiplied Rollerguns

Ok, do I understand this correctly.

If the below bands have enough force to overcome the force of the stationary shaft and contract as fast as they can then the cable on the shaft tab will have...

Re: Alemanni Demultiplied Rollerguns

This is great Pete, I've been trying to understand these guns and how they shoot.

Would I be right in saying that they create their power with shaft speed and not necessarily kg's of force driving...

These guns are great. I have the 130 which has 142cm band stretch. They are good value for money, coming with reel and line. I have 2 friends in my spearfishing club also with them and both also rate...

Re: Brazilian teak?

You're obviously talking about Masters. I don't see any reason you couldn't use Brazilian teak(Dipteryx odorata) but it is not Teak(Tectona grandis).

Re: Shafts for reverse mech railgun?

I like Sigalsub spears. They have pinned shafts with penetration cones and the rear pins are all the way back to give maximum band stretch. Devoto and Hunt technology also make really nice spears but...
