Re: Moving sharkfins further back on spear?

You have a picture of a long tang euro shaft in a short tang euro mechanism.

Re: Custom shafts from spearcrafters

That is actually a cone that fits over the shaft and not a separate piece. The cones are 17-4 heat treated and so precision that they appear to be different than they are.

Re: Enlarge hole for shooting line in shark fin

Out of the hundreds of spear shafts we’ve rebuilt, I find that the vast majority of shaftmakers take lots of shortcuts which include not countersinking line holes or flopper holes.

He showed me a couple videos on his phone and they were very impressive especially in regards to color and clarity.
