Thanks for all the responses guys, never knew I was so popular :wave .

Scott,
When I do finally lay down the cash, do you think I could order one of those brackets? I have a reel mounted horizontally on my Aspic 100 and like the way it feels, barely notice the reel is there.

Eric,
I'll check the website and make the decision on RA or Rabi later. Thanks for the info.

Ulua,
Sent you a pm and email. I can always use more dive partners. The guys at the Y are all good guys just a little suspicious and tend to guard their spots. Can't say I blame them as most divers do the same. I have known some of them for years and have yet to dive with them. Anyway look me up and we'll hit it.

Brad

Brad,

Here's a pic of my setup. It's kind of expensive to have made and mounted ($45) and then shipping of the gun there and back on top of that but because I'm real anal about my gear being perfect, I cough it up. I have this setup on both a 110 and 120 as well. When the time comes, if you're still interested, I'll give you contact info for the guy who does it for me.

Eric,

Don't get me wrong, I'd take a Rabi over any other Euro style gun made (excluding RA of course) any day of the week. Like you, I say RA and Rabi are the best, I just prefer the guns in the opposite order than you do. You are also right about the price. That's the reason I tried the Apex in the 1st place. I was able to get the carbon Apex for about the same price as an aluminum RA of the same size so I figured I’d give it a try. I used to get RAs for $100-$110. That's probably why I own 6 of them. But now they're $300 ($281 + tax - absolutely ridiculous!!!!!) so now I recycle parts and build new guns by just buying the barrels ($30).

And yes, I would love to have a new, non-rusting trigger for my Rabi when they come in. Thank you.

Scott

Which Rabitech are you considering - they seem to have 2 ranges: Stealth or Apex? (Contributors: Which do you use/prefer?)

Some contributors mentioned Rabitech's being cheaper than Rob Allen (in HI, USA/FL, USA?). That was not my experience in Europe, Rabitech seem to be very expensive and hard to find (Finland? 22% VAT!).

[BTW RA have a couple of fancy new lightweight reels, just came out]
