I have a C1 and just wanted to know who else is using something similar? :confused:

Comp #0

Ive used this gun for a bit over a year now. I began using it with the two bands it came with, but later (with advice from members of this forum) added a third to it. Its got the single flopper on the narrow shaft. Real simple and accurate, but I think the third band may have decreased accuracy. Has anyone switched to a thicker shaft and an extra wrap of line to increase range? Other customzations?
My son, the mighty Pudman is sportin a #0. He's a ways from needing to beef it, but I swapped in a 5/16 shaft and a twin barb JBL tip.

I have 3 friends using C1. Two of them extended the butt for easy loading...:head. Both with 9/32 threaded. One with medium Riffe tip and 2 x 9/16 bands + extra 1/2 bands. The other one with 1/2" x 2 bands, with his own stupid tip that made me loose a nice trevaly.

The last one belong to a lady friend that just recently lost it in the water....poor soul. Using 9/32 hawaiian shaft and 2 x 1/2" bands.
