Mon, 2012-06-11 13:19

I'm running a 1500 RA Carbon with double 18mm rubbers and an 8mm spear - got plenty of punch and is super accurate. Then a 30m Riffe float line to 5m bungee and 11 litre RA Float. Not much you cant land with that.....

Geez DBZ! that thing is huge. I would have been thinking that thing might get angry after putting a spear though it and turn on you :)

Did it run you around long

Cheers for the comments.


Buz / Snapper miles - yeah it had a decent first run but ran out of steam suprisingly quick, although the shot did nic the spine which helps.


I shot it amongst a few decent sized bronzies so was trying to let it run a bit get a lead on them. The noahs had been eating reefies off us all day but they seemed hesitant to take a swipe at the big guy - i think they were too scared of the fangs up front
