Re: Band width for carbon gun

Well now we have some numbers. For a minimum run order of say teal in 14 mm small inner diameter band material the buyer has to stump up $2821.50 for the rubber which comes in at 3.75 cases of 400 feet each. I don't know how the company handle the 3/4 case extra unless they sell it as an odd lot of say 50 feet x 6. On top of that is the shipping cost, so maybe we are looking at under 2 bucks per foot if you buy from the manufacturer directly.

If 100 divers wanted 15 feet each then that would be about 30 bucks each, so you need a group of 100 individuals who all want the same band size and color. Maybe create a Spearboard "band bank" for the buying and distribution of desired colors.

Found the catch on ordering small batches. $45 shipping fee from Ohio to pa and a $15.00 penalty for under minimum order.

Re: Band width for carbon gun

I received a batch of small ID bands in fluorescent orange. Maybe it was a custom request from the person who ordered it, but I have to say I really like them. You can see those bands from a mile off on the surface, and they are great in open water where boats are around you and you want to improve your visibility in case a boat comes close to you. Not sure if the color spooks fish as that is not a natural color underwater, but so far I haven't noticed any noticeable change. Once you are below 15 feet the color seems to fade out quite well.

Re: Band width for carbon gun

has anyone tried the red Meandros small ID rubber, made by Primeline? The 14.5mm a sweet size, and apparently calipers pretty close to that
