Had been reluctant to post since I never kill any super impressive fish but thought oh well. Sometimes I feel like I gain knowledge from this little community and don't participate. I am moderately bad with technology so this may be a rough go. I will post pics once I figure out how.
I have lived on Maui now for a year and a half. I try to dive twice a week but it for sure doesn't always happen ( dang responsibilities!). I am improving as a diver but still have a long way to go. I am also improving as a hunter but still have a long, long way to go. Hunting fish in Hawaii is unreal difficult compared to where ever else I have been before (fresh water, Cozumel, east/west coast Florida). It is an art. When you can dive an out of the way place as compared to the more accessible spots it becomes noticeably more successful. It's not that there aren't fish out there- it's just they automatically know you are a predator. It's crazy.
I dive with carbon speardiver fins (crazy better than my cressi garas) and an 110 aim rite super venom. I am constantly screwing with this gun to make it better. I switch first down from a 150cm spear 7mm to a 140cm. This greatly improved feel because the gun is no longer tip heavy. I like to swim with the gun flipped over and holding it by the handle tucked to my body so this reduced the fatigue in my hand considerably. It took about three days diving to get used to the new method aiming but the last time o was in the water it felt nuts on the money. Then I went from 16mm bands to 14mm. This greatly enhanced the tigger pull. I don't jerk the trigger as much (this is also probably due to me working on the issue). I switched back from a double wrap to a single even though I am still on the fence about this. Today I pulled off the Aimrite handle and put on a Pathos D'Angelo 1 handle I had lying around as my fresh water gun. I love the ergonomics of it. We will see if this translates to better performance (or not). If I like it I will upgrade to the Meandros mech when I get the money. It only gained 4 cm of band stretch with the reverse mech but the gun over all is shorter and more efficient. I had to shave down the flopper a hair even. Again we see how this translates in the water.
Anyway I post a few picks soon. Safe and happy diving
