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.

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

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.
