Hi Baur,

i am currently awaiting a Seac Sub Asso 115 modified by Maorisub, with 8mm threaded shaft and Devotosub Tuna sliptip.

My buddy is also bringing a selection of Riffe sliptips from the states.

I also have the 19mm bands already tied ready for the Tahtiti.

I am sure one of the two setups will work :D

As Fernando mentioned, a fractionated bouy system is your best bet.

The tuna's heart and muscle fibres are designed for hardcore endurance and are a lot more resistant than AJ. IF you value that tender do not use it as the first bouy. Get a couple of small ones in front to slow the beast down.

I guess its gonna be good this summer. Fernando, you and me all vying for a monster.

First one to catch a tuna over 100 kilos this year buys the beer ;)
Beers??? A whole dinner !!!!

The first one to land a big tuna invites the other to a dinner !!!!It is a minimum !!! In December we will talk about the year.

Shane. Put some photos in an album in pescasub.com. YOurs are very good photo !!! I would like to see more !!! :p :p :p :p
Goodmorning Shane & Fernando

Double 19's ready for action here also :D
I ended up getting a 8mm (7.94) Riffe sharkfin threaded shaft with a riffe slip tip. I am confident that when I choose to pull the trigger the Tahiti will "deliver the goods" with this setup. Received 50m 2mm inox aircraft cable from the States, and bulk bungie from Riffe. Good advice on the bouy preceeding the tender, will have to test and see soon ;)

The dinner/beer bet is on. Bringing war to the tuna..:martial:martial
