Re: attaching line to the rest tab?

cool, makes sense now. I’ll give it a go, my goal is always accuracy, and I’m never hunting in holes. Thank you!

Hi there, Im about to finish a new home built and I faintly remember reading here about attaching the line to the rest tab? What is the benefit of this? It does seem counterintuitive to me Happy to...

Re: 14 mil bands that are "softer"

I tried Epsealon Blizzard in 14mm and they’re quite soft. Colour sticks out like a sore thumb though. Worth a try if you can get your hands on it

Re: Salvimar Hero & Hero Storm test

Thanks so much for the review, I had my eyes on the hero for quite a long time, but of course - the current crisis put a spanner into the works. Would be interesting to know if you have had a bad...

Re: Enlarge hole for shooting line in shark fin

�� not sure if you're joking about buying a new shaft. Anyway – first, carefully work with a dremel and a cone shaped head. Then put a toothpick into a drill, dip into cutting compound and off you...

Re: Does a magnet affect spear velocity?

I epoxied a thin rare earth magnet into the Muzzle of one of my guns just for that reason - worked quite well, but they rust out really fast. Decided it wasn't worth the effort (though I'm sure a...

Re: wood handle classic and ergonomic thumb rest

Re: How short is too short? Will this damage my barrel ?

Mine does. No clue why (still has stock rubber which seem a bit too long). It's my spare gun though, only used it once and didn't get around fixing it yet. 115 Sniper

Re: Carbon fibre to strengthen wooden muzzle

Re: 2 shafts, 1 gun

I used your first option with double 16mm, worked a treat for any size reef fish

Re: How short is too short? Will this damage my barrel ?

Uh, I just noticed the open muzzle – how are you planning to wrap your shooting line over the spear? In front of the flopper won't do it.
I suggest buying a new one.

Re: Sporasub america one alternative

Re: Sporasub america one alternative

Yep, I've given up on the RA spears too, considering their price in Oz and NZ. The only ss shafts with a reasonable quality here are Riffe, but again at over $100 a pop you still flinch a glimpse of...

Re: Sporasub america one alternative

There's a sporasub one shaft you're describing for their sk40 gun but max length is 130 at 6.4mm thickness. The beauty with the hardened flopper is only available for their One air. Being in the same...

Re: Need help: How to remove trigger mechanism for Sporasub One 105

Re: Rob allen misfired

RA had a trigger recall a while ago, if you still have the old black one, you'll get it exchanged for the grey. Won't fix it if there's an issue with the sear though, may pay to take a closer look.

Re: Small reel recommendations

I have an ermes colibri in my shelf reserved for my next reef gun. Can't give you a review just yet, since it won't get wet for a while, but it looks quite sturdy and very well built. Worth a look.
