Plugger / Corkscrew

Sun, 2009-02-08 12:07

Where'd you get the plugger / corkscrew (not sure what they are called) BJ ?  Bloody not cheap having to go into bluewater and get them replaced.

Picasso

Sun, 2009-02-08 12:17

Not sure exactly what is was called but its a Picasso model, bought from Adventure Sports in KTA. Cost $20.

Paid for itself already.

Green cord is just that 'parachute' cord you can buy.

Not super fancy but works well.

Hmm if picasso do ones I'm

Sun, 2009-02-08 12:49

Hmm if picasso do ones I'm sure someone else does them for half the money too. Picasso neoprene glue is $40 instead of $12 and we all know its the same stuff!




PS: Those edge bridle inserts also look good and apparently last pretty well.

True

Sun, 2009-02-08 12:59

Thats true Till, but my options were somewhat limited in KTA when I was chasing one.

Certainly a gadget that makes the whole process much easier.

For sure, and you have one

Sun, 2009-02-08 13:28

For sure, and you have one already, more a warning for anyone else chasing the same part.

 

Oh and edge inserts.

20 bucks for a picasso one

Sun, 2009-02-08 18:44

20 bucks for a picasso one is quite cheap. The rob allen 1's go for over 50.

Have been meaning to get 1 for years, as usually a bridle breaks out at sea and a 10 minute job turns into a hour long job

There called a tee bar

Wed, 2009-02-11 16:20

There called a tee bar applicator guys,they can be made easy enoughout of a peice of 8 mm tube... for tieing your bridles i would use something with a bit more bite, there is a special blue clinch cord, i think its about 1.50 per meter its easy to use and lasts along time.

changing out your bridles can be done with a pair of pliers all u need to do is force the bulb in and your home and hosed.. if you chech out www.spearifhsing.com there is a proper clintch knot that i use.. i spear a fair bit and i have never had this not fail..

Double

Cheers Plastic Freak.

I just double wrap the parachute cord and tie off with a reef knot. Works well for me.

Must be a dbase

Thu, 2012-09-27 18:27

Must be a dbase glitch?

Anywhere, probably much the same as this pic:

http://fishwrecked.com/forum/pimp-my-gun

The only thing I would add is that, I have since stopped even using the metal bead and just use a double overhand in the braid loop. It takes a few goes to get it to bunch up nicely, but it seems to work fine.

Tee bar or wishbone

Mon, 2015-02-02 19:01

Tee bar or wishbone applicator

i got 2 or 3 spare if anyone needs one

bought 6 when i was in SA handed out some to mates

its really worth it if u not gonna use a gun for 3 months or so to take out the wishbone IMHO as they always perish right there on the constriction

i take out wishbone and store rubbers in vacu pack format in the fridge - amazing how long rubber lasts
