The wood is mahogany of the Sipo variety just like the totems.

Handle has been developed by Giorgio Dapiran from olympic shooting pistols.

An amazing gun if ever i saw one ;)

Congrats Memo

Nice, on a related note -- I received my PAL90 from Teak-Sea and it's nothing short of gorgeous!

I'll give it a little write up/review when I've done some rather extensive testing once the water warms up a couple of degrees.
All I've seen so far in the forums about these guns seems to be friends of Teak-Sea attempting to sway people's buying decision towards them, does anybody actually have one or know anyone who's tested them out yet?

Roll on Spring!

I tried it yesterday and man its balanced!!!! with short twin 18s the recoil is almost none and it really really shoots well.

The reason I did not choose superjedi.... Because they are different.. The design, manufacturing, lamination... And I love Victor's work.

Memo,

Does your 106cm gun with 18 bands has similar range compared to the 120cm tahiti with 16mm bands? Which one has better tracking and range? This should be interesting long gun with thinner bands vs shorter gun with thicker bands..

The denton with twin short 18s has lower recoil than tahiti 120 with 18s. The accuracy of tahiti with 16s is very similar to denton's with 18s but with both rubber denton tracks better.

The range is more or less 6m, with double wrap shooting line, it pulls line from reel like crazy... so I am pretty sure that it can whack a decent fish over 5.5m

Ed the videos will take a bit of time to arrive as my camera flooded in Ibiza and i have sent it back to Sony to get it replaced.

I whacked a real nice Sheepshead bream this morning of around 3 kilos.

We will post some pics soon

Will respond to your PM on pescasub soon

You bet, I'll give it a thread with some photo's and post back with my own opinions once I get into the water for some testing.

Sweet Memo, seems like we're just spoilt for choice these days with all the fancy products on the market ;)
