Hi Rig,

Yes I've seen the pictures and would have loved to see you with one holding a fish too. The most awesome one is Guy spearing two tuna 204# and 262# with a 60in hybrid gun. Puts new meaning into the saying..." its the indian and not the arrow!"
I'll be on a tuna trip over the holidays and will let you know how it goes. I will be sending out a new ono gun but you can't claim it since I engraved a name on it already. You'll see it Thanksgiving.
Speaking of Floatlines, My neoprene ones are still on the Ambar in Cabo and I'll be using my old norprene ones. I hope they hold for one more trip.

Aloha, Daryl

Hi Mr Wong,

I know its too early but do you think to establish some international dealers in europe? Especially in Cyprus:D . BTW i saw in your site that you started to manufacture semi closed tracks hybrid with 5/16 shafts. I am just curious about its technical properties. If you use same track with 60-65inch CF hybrid with 9/32 shafts is it allow you to overpower the gun bit more with extreme accuracy. BTW where do you put the track wood end or carbon end?

Bye...

Hi Murat,

My company and the other company I am partnered with (Aimrite) would like to someday establish a broader customer base through international dealers. But alas, we are still two companies of one elf and two elfs....Rick and I both have regular jobs and hope to one day become internaltional.
The new semi enclosed hybrid is enclosed on the wood side. This enables at least half of the shaft to be enclosed while it is going out when the trigger is pulled. by the time it leaves the enclosed portion, the bands have provided most of its power and the shaft is on its way. This was a way to get rid of as much shaft whipping of the 9/32 shaft when using three bands. It was first designed for the smaller 9/32 and since then a freind has made it popular with the 5/16 shaft too. I named the gun model after him.
A diver recently sent in a picture of two tuna's over 200#'s speared with the semi-enclosed track hybrid gun. It will be up on our website soon, along with the others who have landed tuna with my guns.

Aloha, Daryl
