Showing the different barrel shapes. Pelagos is wider but thinner top to bottom for better side tracking and the pelagos is thinner but quite a bit thicker to sustain the increased recoil from 2 bands.

Trigger mechs laser cut from 8mm stainless steel and then hand polished. Real sweet operation and can sustain 3 x 16 mm bands easily.

Memo,

If your still thinking about the guns just stay away from the sporasub viper. A dealer acquaintence of mine showed me a stack of 'trigger cassestes' which he pulled from sporasub guns b/c the didn't properly hold the spear. He stoped carrying the line and woul'd let me buy one of the guns off him even though that meant I bought a different railgun somewhere else (needless to say he gets the rest of my buissiness now). I know they make a lot of guns and I'm sure people use them w/out problems, but why would you take your chances w/ a company that puts crap into circulation?

As soon as I can get my mate with his 3.8 million pixel digi cam I will take a few real close pictures.

The guns left Italy on Thurday and were in Spain ready for collection on Monday. Great delivery service but pity about the bloody misunderstanding at the collection depot. Picked them up on Thursday.

Went to Spain yesterday and bought some 1.5mm Kevlar braided line for band tying. Might change to dyneema bands on a few of my other guns as well. A bot more work involved but a lot cheaper.

Yes the 1.5 mm is quite hard. The braid is very compact. The line is used for high performace kite flying and kite boarding which is quite big in spain.

They were also selling 2mm dyneema 45 Euros for 200 meters. Is that a good price or not????????

Might go spearing fist thing tommorow morning. Will take the pelagos as I am not sure the water is clear enough for the 120 tahiti.

Don't know if the dyneema is hard but apparently it is "Virtually Indestructable".
We'll soon see about that HEHEHEH!!!!!

I will write something about my first experience with the gun tommorow evening.

as far as I know Dyneema is very popular in sailing world, and even in some rope pulleys these ropes tend to show some defects because of friction....

but sure its not a problem for us as we are doing business under water :D
