Hey guys (and gals). I'll be ordering a new Rabi soon for bluewater use, and don't know which size to get. I've been using a 120 for general spearing, and chest load it fine. I am 5'8" though, and do have to reach a bit to load it. My buddy has a 140 that I'd try, but I'm in Iraq right now and can't. Anyone out there my size that can give me some advice? Thanks in advance.

I don't know if 10cm is going to make a world of difference. If your getting a euro gun for bluewater hunting I'd go 140. With my euro guns I try to stay w/ 20cm increments. I first got a 120 and then an 80. This way I can get a 100 if I need to and have the full spectrum covered. I also think your 120 should do the job, have you tried it for bluewater hunting yet?

If you can load your 120 you already have the technique to load any eurogun no problem.

Blake, is that you?

I really don't think that the last post is in the best possible taste.
remember there are people on this board from all over the world, not just the US.

Matt,
I forgot you had the 120. Go 140. Looking forward to having you back home to use them.

I'm looking to get a bigger Rabi as well. I currently own a 110cm Aluminum Stealth and a 120cm Apex Carbon. I may go 130cm only b/c I would like it for both blue and on the reefs. I hope the bigger one ends up being as accurate as my other smaller ones. Stay safe out there!

I can't believe that last post of mine was edited!

Rolando, Blake tells me his friend bought a 130 rigged for bw use with the heavier spear, but also got their normal sized shafts as well. That way he can switch from bw to longer-range bottom spearing just by switching out the shafts. Sounds like something you might consider.

I've decided on the 140, but with all the tax free pay I get, hell, I just might get both.

I had many muslim friends as well. Including a Kuwaiti friend who offered to take me diving on the rigs there. The people I worked with there and Afghanistan were some of the nicest and most well-intentioned I have met anywhere. All politics aside, Matt has a unique persepctive on those things given his situation.

Anyway, I just wanted wanted back up Matt...not stir the pot.

Rolo, the 140cm gun is the "Hand of God" and nothing escapes its rath!

With all of my respect to the comunity here...

This statement is more than enough to start poletical discussion, its even tempting to me to say few words about it, but here is not the right place.

So lets be little more carefull and choose the words more wisely when talking about such sensitive topics. Please..
