MAKO Spearguns: NEW - Rapid Change Wishbones

Rapid Band Change Wishbones for 14.5mm small ID tubing

http://bit.ly/mako-rbcw


MAKO Spearguns Rapid Band Change Wishbones make changing 14.5mm small ID bands fast and easy. Our 14.5mm small ID power band latex tubing is fast becoming the most popular tubing in the world for spearfishing.

NO TOOLS NEEDED

NO CUTTING NEEDED

No slits in your muzzles? ...NO PROBLEM!

Install, remove and re-install your bands as often as you like, quickly and easily. Specifically made for 14.5mm small ID tubing.

NOTE: DO NOT USE ON REGULAR ID TUBING OR TUBING LARGER THAN 14.5MM as it may pull out.

MAKO Speargun bands are the best in the world because they are made by Primeline Industries USA. If it isn't Primeline, it is not the best.

Includes two loop knots hand dipped in rubber to prevent water intrusion into bands and the Dyneema wishbone.

Different insert, but same technique.

There are actually two knots that are recommended by SpearQ8.

• single loop
• double loop

In either case, before tying your knot, there are two important requirements.

#1: The bridle material must be stiff, like my South African Wishbone cordage.
I have tested wishbone cordage from many suppliers from around the world and the
South African cordage is the toughest cordage I have found.

#2: You must create a really good size “burn ball” at the end of your cord.
If you are unsure about the integrity of the burn ball, you can add a simple
half hitch knot at the end for added assurance that it will not pull through.


Below is a photo of the burn ball only.


Below is a photo of the burn ball plus a simple half hitch knot.



Single loop Knot:

Step 1:
Thread cordage through hole and create a burn ball at the end.




Step 2: Wrap the cordage around the shank one time and pass the end through the loop that you just created.



Step 3: Pull tight, ensuring the burn ball is well outside of the knot.



NOTE: For additional confidence, you can also tie a ½ hitch knot on the end after you create your burn ball.


Double loop:


Step 1:
Thread cordage through hole and create a burn ball at the end.



Step 2: Wrap the cordage around the shank two times and pass the end through the two loops that you just created.






Step 3: Pull tight, ensuring the burn ball is well outside of the knot.



Once again, I would like to thank SpearQ8 for sharing these awesome inserts with me.
We are all pretty darn lucky to have him around.

Dive safe,
dano
