Spinal Tap said:Oh where to begin...
Spinal Tap . You are what I would call "biased" and because of that you missed Some of the important things that was said.You have misunderstood
the post because no one said that there products wasn't good.
My post all but actually says "I'm biased". I admit I haven't read each post of this thread carefully. Technical stuff bore me. I'll expand on this further down.
You've either misunderstood or side stepped my point about attacking their intent. Below in Italics is what I'm referring to.
We have a manufacture that post on here quite often and they never have a problem because they don't feed us hyped up techno babble about there products.They give it to us on the level ,straight and true.As an educated/ business man I would expect you to have better communication skills to be able to talk to someone about something you know more of without belittling them .
Perhaps you could have rephrased Rick's "techno babble" into a more digestable terms, or were you just mad you couldn't comprehend what he was writing about?
I could dumb it down for you but the just of it is you don't have to be a rocket scientist to build a decent trigger
Could it be possible that the discussion was of a technical nature, and Rick actually needed to use what ever "techno babble" to describe whatever he was describing?
It is possible but what differce would it make of some people reading could not understand what he was talking about or did not bother to read becaused it board them.
Out of curiosity, who is this other manufacturer? I know Mark L of Omer has written some detailed stuff, but I don't believe he actually manufactures those products. I could be wrong.
Believe or not everything they sell they don't make .You missed when they said that.
Anyways, to conclude this point. You're implying that Rick or Daryl's intent in participating in this thread was to used "techno babble" to feed you guys hype. You also felt that experienced businessmen such as Rick and Daryl were in this thread to belittle some participants.
They're intent was to teach some people about speargun triggers.
My lead in on my Original post used product and character as an example, but attacking their intent was the focus.
The way I read there post they made it sound like making a safe trigger was beyond the capability of
the common man.
I just found
some of there statements questionable.
You could have said it just like that and then reference those questionable statements.They were mentioned ,you must have read over it.
Just a question for you would you feel any different if it was another company and you owned three of there brand?
I don't follow. Are you asking if I would take the time to respond on this thread had it been another company (whose product I own)?
I'll take a stab at answering your question anyways...
That depends on the person(s). Is he a person I want to be friends with? Would I be proud to know him and call him my friend? I made it pretty clear in my post that I consider Rick and Daryl to be my friends who happen to make spearguns.
It has nothing to do with friends .I was asking if we was talking about riffes and you had only riffe would you fill the same?
Do you know any owner(s) of gun companies that would help you pick up a used gun (one of his) that you bought from a guy near him, fix any damages, and send it to you with some fresh bands for free?
What do you think of companys that doesn't do that?
There are people that own things and have strong feelings toward them but have know idea what what makes them better or maybe equal to something else.I don't own any of the major brands and anytime I hear one talk about something they offer that other companies don't have, I try and find out what it is all about .I don't believe it just because they say it ,I believe it because it has been proven as fact.Some people don't question anything and people like me always have questions.
Thanks for the veiled insult. Technical stuff bore the hell out of me. If I'm not mistaken, you're a fan of euro type guns...Spearguns in general seem to be heading in the right direction and making some great progress. Just for reference I have never shot or even held a euro gun but reconize the advantages of using one . . You wrote this last July. To me that sounds like you read up on euro guns and liked what you read about them, so they're for you?
I don't understand your point.I not only read up on them but built my own.Im also going to start building a hybrid in about two weeks .You must have missed that thread in your search.
Did you ask all the questions you can before buying your Bandito Panther?
No questions needed .Members on this forum with simular situations answered
all the questions I had.
Also you missed the part about why I bought it .Because it was affortable and suited the low vis water we have here.
One thing I would say to you is that since you are a friend and you own three of there guns some people could think that you're a represenative of what they stand for and if you did something that was out of line it would reflect on them.
That's the most ridiculous thing I've read on this website. What the hell kind of logic is this?
If you don't understand what I was saying there is no point of having a discussion with you.
If I was seen as a represenative of another company I should't go around throwing punches at people for the products they produce.
You lost me there champ. Did I diss another maker's products?
No you didn't .
I was making a reference to other peoples behavior.
If you look at some of the equipment some of the more seasoned guys use you will notice they have different brands and when they choose one over the other it is because of it's intended use and not because of it's brand name, Something we(or at least I) can look foward to .
Well that depends on the seasoned guys you know. I dive with a handful of old bastards (and I call them that endearingly) in my town and they only have a couple guns each. One guy has only one, an Alexander Bluewater which he uses for anything from 2lb to 70lb fish.
If you look at some of the pics in the fish photo section you will see some guys with very respectable catches .And they have several photos with different guns in each photo either differt styles or by different makers.
You didn't read very much of what was written and you're to angry to understand anything I said . If you're going to search thru old post to find ammo you should atleast come up with something decent.I sent you that pm to help you understand what happened but you said you half read thru it too so I don't think there is anything that I haven't said that can help you.
