Adjusted exploded diagram for new parts, only new muzzle in alloy to add which has the line slide holder built-in. Released in titanium version, but no profile part photos in alloy yet. Prototype shown below. Note carabiner now has a coil spring (part 11).

Taimen have now announced hardened stainless steel spears (Sandvik) for their guns which come in Tahitian single flopper, Tahitian single flopper with replaceable point and threaded end versions for screw on speartips with floppers. If you hunt near rocks or a stony bottom with a light sprinkling of sand then replaceable tips are recommended, otherwise you will be grinding your tips down after a shot hits the nearest available rock when it lands.
