what should be the lenght of line for picasso century 100 cm
20 mm bands
there are 3m line on my new gun.
i was using the same length on my 71 cm omar
3m of line on 100 cm gun is standart. It is one wrap of line. If you feel your gun has more potential and you need more range swap it with two wrap of line. It's 5 meter. But if you dont need it 3m should be fine.
i thought there was a mistake
i heard this one wrap double wrap issue here for the first time

i think it must be strickly related to the power of bands
i have 20 mm original bands which i think powerful enough
what more experienced spearos accustomed with euro spears think about this wrap thing.

"Wraps": Refers to the number of times the shooting line (the line connecting the spear to the gun) is looped around the line release.

So a single wrap goes from the spear, through the muzzle, to the line release and to the attachment point near the muzzle.

A 100cm Picasso with 20mm rubbers only needs one wrap of shooting line. Any more and reloading becomes a pain in the butt. And the 20mm rubbers are powerful enough for just about any fish!
Most eurogun users with one set of bands use just the one wrap of line.

I myself jsut bought a Picasso 110 and the bands that come on picasso guns as standard are about 2cm too long.

You probably have 28 cm bands on your 100 when you could do with 26 or even 24cm bands. So you definitely won't need more than one wrap of line with the standard setup.

If you want more range I suggest you use a longer gun as opposed to more power as this will severely affect the accuracy.
