Just when you thought it was safe to go thinking you had dakine tools for stainless steel subterfuge... I present my two latest acquisitions... :cool:

This first one is a genuine 60" Alexander. Open track, 3/8 shaft, 5/8" bands, Alexander guts, ballasted and winged. 17 pounds of hand rubbed teak and coca bola love. If it looks familiar, it's because it's cousin is pictured in Terry Maas's Blue Water Hunters

Pure, hard core, unapologetic old school launcher.

Who da man?:king

and yet another!

Man o man o man!

Fresh from these 9 digits, an Anderson.

54", open track 5/16" or 3/8" shafted, Alexander guts, laminated teak and check this out...

The center lamination is Purple Heart!! Awww yeah! :king

Tung oiled :t to a pearly sheen and weighing in at a ballasted and svelte 12 lbs, this gun is narrower in profile than the usual Riffes, Yakoojis and Wongs, though both Darin and der Dr. Wong are now also producing a line of slimmer teak guns, showing all those euro gun :girlie toting wannabees the true meaning of balanced and burly love in your hands. This thing swings faster than a six foot, blonde vitamin sales rep!

And as it's from the paws of the Sultan, need you wonder if it's smooth? ;)

I feel like I'm caught in the middle of a "Barry and Lavone" skit.... "now you know what time it is...time to dip our butts in the puddin. Awwwwwww Yeeeaaaahhhhh".

Question (yeah, that's right):
Photo 4 - That metal piece used to wrap the line over the spear. It looks considerably different than on my Riffe. Is that a standard Alexander piece of hardware, or a custom job? It seems high. Does the line jump over it (no probs) when the gun is fired?

Ted

oh yeah. saweeet tools. They looks so darn purty. Can they take a hit? I'd be afraid to set em down on anything other than a baby diaper.

puddin' love

That line post just looks a bit taller than the norm, Ted. The macro on the camera let me get kinda close. It's a direct overhead shot. It's a svenski- just 1/8" SS rod left from the pushrod.

And it's made to throw down. I have one gun on the walls that doesn't get used. The others are all non-posers.

Nice couple of tools there Sven. (The grout looks better than the last one :D ) I'm dying with envy. Thanks for sharing Sven. They are A-OK.

the rollergun is an ongoing project of dubious results. It's just something to dick around with while I wait for the sweepstakes to hit.

How do you get that purple laminate. Is that a special wood dye?

What are the dimensions top to bottom on the "slim" gun?

What are you comparing it to when you say it tracks fast, the QEII hehehehe!!!!!

Look like good pieces of kit. I will ask you to lend it if my Totem Tahiti doesn't stand up to the bluefin tuna.
