I don't think I will get any RA longer than 130cm and no less than 100cm cause I intend to use it as a fast tracking gun. I know what u mean by the rest tab on the longer RA, my soon coming 155CM #4 Riffe is ordered with rest tab just in case I can't reach it.

I think cause of small 6.5mm shaft the RA accuracy will be rather off with cable. My 124cm #2 Riffe uses 8mm shaft and I can get good accuracy with even a 500 lbs coated cable. I fear mono because it once slipped off the crimp and bye-bye shaft, maybe it was a bad crimp. I will give mono a few more try.

I just can' wait for the Riffe-s to come. I never seen a Metal Tech before ( only photos ) and my friend is ordering one. I will let you guys know how it will behave with 5 of 9/16 bands on 3/8 shaft. I been asking a few forums on Metal Tech with the new aluminum muzzle but it seems no one logged on has it yet or perhaps they don't bother to reply. I am thinking to set up a 3mm plywood
target board to register hits, like firearm c-t-c accuracy testing.

The more I scan the profile of you gentlemen, I realize that there are a lot with engineering background. Can you guys please check out a new thread I just started I want opinion from the Einstein in you.

"Recoiless Speargun.....Is it possible ?"


Thanks Guys

East of Bali

Abriapnea,

East of Bali will be Lombok, right next to Bali. The coral there been bombed big time. As I said Bali in like a country in a country, even Lombok being close, the difference is still great. Bali is more developed and rich in cultural hindu heritage. Lombok or anything more 2 east are poorer.....poorer.....poorer. Those bored with the crowd in Bali, they go to Lombok. It is growing but since the culture is different between the 2 island, Lombok is not doing that well. Anything more east should have good diving area but infrastructure is poor and probably job vacancy might not be that easy. Anyway good luck & if u need any info blast me an email.

Iya
