Hawaiian transplant...

In the Florida Freedivers catalog, I noticed an item labelled "Loading Butt for Handle"

Thought about it and I've never seen a Rob Allen with a loading butt. Any one seen one or have a picture of one?

Local store carries some Rob Allens, but after a near-knockout experience with a butt-less esclapez, I'd rather have one and it was one of the main things pushing me towards the Rabitech.
Hi fuzz
check out this link. they have a pic of one under gun accessories. they also have a good gun loading tutorial for chest and stomach loading.


the pic on the site isnt very good, so this may give a better idea of it



for interest sake, what do you think of their floats?

Those floats look... interesting. Lots of space, but looks like it'll act like a kite too :(

Thanks for the pic Griff - good hunk of Karma coming your way ;)
Do you think the loading butt is solid enough? I can't properly tell how it's attatched to the butt of the gun :confused:

Jay, I'm glad they came around :hmm
nuthin worse than a buttless euro. :mute

and that pad sure is aero! :hmm friggin :girlie guns...

:t sven
Sheesh , I really am getting old ; what happened to the good ole days when you simply grabbed your gun and swam out to the reef ? :confused:
I hear ya Abri, next thing you know we'll all be :girlie and using Riffe's......

and not too long after that I guess everyone will be landing fish...;)
Why do you guys need loading butts on your handles? Do you not have a loading pads on your suits? I find the loading butt uncomfortable and gets in the way when aiming.

Rob Allen.
Hey Rob, welcome! You've just entered the driest, wittiest place around. Must be the wood...;)

Thanks for the welcome, I needed to see what all the fuss is about........ still looking!

Rob Allen.
Welcome Rob.

WHen are you guys going to get a dealer in Europe. I've got a few contacts in Spain if your interested!!!

Keep those posts coming

If you speak Spanish I will, If not I will relay the Info for you.

Would this be of interest to you??

Welcome Rob. May be you guys wanna have dealer in Cyprus too.
You will be open new era in euro vs Riffe (wood) battles. Seems Abri found the strongest ally ever.:D
Welcome Rob,
Glad to have you aboard, nice to have a manufacturer to ask questions to directly and looking forward to using your guns.
