Re: Where to buy rubber for rigging bungees

Good tip! Sure it looks tidy.

Which gun is in the picture? Looks like CF barrel with plastic muzzle.

Re: Where to buy rubber for rigging bungees

Have you thought about how are you going to thread it with the dyneema afterwards?

Not having done it before I would try to do it just like it is done to lay cables in conduits for long straight...

Re: Canova 95 Carbon speargun

If it shots as well as it looks, it is going to be a winner!

Re: Need advice on fins

I was in the same boat a few years ago. Long time Cressi Gara 2000 HF user I switched to carbon fiber (from Carbontec, LCS model, budget fins with Mares footpockets). At first I had to adapt to it....

Re: New to kayaking: Bic borneo

Well, i have gotten it wet exactly two times so far.

First one with my gf and daugther. Strong wind and against a river like current. Not fun.

Second one a couple days ago. Open water, no waves...

Re: Hobie tandem Island

Kayak? Well, the floating thing is based on a kayak... but it is far faaaaaaaaaar away from what I could consider a Kayak!

For me one of the joys of the kayak is how light (relatively) and easy to...

Re: Carbon Fiber Gun structures

I don't know if any manufacturer is going to disclose this information as I believe is a big part of the design of their guns. It would be like releasing the blue prints of the guns.

Cool to see?...

Re: new custom build

With the advantage of CAD drawing and CNC routing you could go with less squarish shapes and still get a perfect symetric stock (think Abellan).

I commited to build a CNC router with a friend of...

Re: Warning: Subprof are best avoided!

Re: Rubber band properties, marketing lingo and related issues

Re: Best 120

Fly LUFTANSA! They allow you to carry skis in a skybag and won't even charge for it! Just stick the guns in the skybag / sportstube and go for it.

Re: Lost KB Signature Speargun

Re: A Good Way to Samba/Blackout

Thanks for sharing. Arround here our fishing is much much different. Dirty water, shallow depths and even when you try, very hard to do real buddy diving. Water isn't usually THAT clear. But we have...

Re: Fish groupers on the fringes

For those who want to make themselves one of this clickers, I came across a bunch of sellers in Aliexpress who stock these sort of gears in pretty much any material. I hope this helps!

New to kayaking: Bic borneo

Hello all,

I recently bought a used kayak with a dual purpose in mind. Main use would be recreational with my gf and 5y old daugther. SEcondary use would be, as you can imagine, spearfishing.

Re: Gladiator Bestiarius 120 Invert Roller

I am one of those who tune the floppers to stay open, sharpens the back end and raises it a little bit. So far I haven't damaged my line and in one of the guns the setup is just like this. Doesn't...

Re: Gladiator Bestiarius 100 Invert Roller

Beautiful gun and attention to detail is second to none. Got to love CNC. However guns like that don't come out JUST because CNC is used... there is a lot of work behind during the design phase!
