that might be me . Im not from beaumont but I dive out of sabine pass when I am in townI have relatives in Nederland and arrange to go visit them often..I have a 52" rhino with commercial muzzle and steel cable .It is fairly quick to reload . the commercial muzzle is very accurate.I am at work now so I will give you more info later when I have some time.

as far as the tip I use a slip tip http://www.slinginsteel.com/tips.html#slip
I think it is the T230 on that page .it is on a plain old threaded 54" shaft .just as with any gun you have to decide what size cable to use the larger sizes sure are a lot stronger but theyslow down the spear a lot. if you think you will be taking longer shots at smaller fish .a thinner cable might be better .
