PIMP YOUR SPEAR
 
07:52
Hello My spearfishing community Have you bought a new stainless spear? If you have, then stop right Here, before you string it to your gun we are going to .. PIMP YOUR SPEAR Now I cannot emphasize how important this procedure is, this will not make your spear travel further or faster, but it will land more fish. Now anyone who says they never have a fowl shot when shooting are either lying or don't spearfish very often. What I am going to share with you today will increase your chances of landing that fish which is only holding on by a small amount of meat or skin. I just want to clarify this is intended towards stainless spears only that come with euro guns. The South Africans spears have all these processes already done on their spears, Secondly their spears are usually plated spring steel so we don't want to take off that plating. First lets look at what we will be modifying. Just four things here really, Smoothing the back of the flopper, pinching the flopper so it stays upright, polish the notch and lastly checking the hole where the shooting line will go through. Tools you will need 30cm of 2mm Sacrificial dyneema Jif or some kind of cutting compound 2mm needle file or dremel Large side cutters flat metal file 1 Polish holding side of the flopper. 1:00 Lets start with the front of the spear. Two things we have to do here. Firstly this is an absolute must, I cannot emphasize just how important this is. If you only do one thing to your spear today, then makes sure it is this. Most stainless spears have floppers that are pressed from sheet metal, as a result from that process they end up with a very sharp edge. This left unattended can be the difference between keeping or loosing the fish. There will be a time where you shoot a fish and it does not make it all the way through the fish. Then as the fish wriggles, the spear slowly works it's way back out of the fish. And the only thing keeping the fish on your spear is the flopper caught on the fishes skin. What you don't want is the flopper cutting through. You can use sand paper but a file is quicker. What you want is a nice rounded edge once it is finished. One day you will thank me when this super simple mod saves you a good fish. 2 Pinching / locking the flopper. 2:15 Now if you are only going to do two mods on your spear today then this is a very close second. Another weird thing you will often find with euro spears is that the flopper does not stay up when struck. This is where the side cutters come in. Have the flopper up at 30 degrees then pinch the base. 3 Polishing the notch 3:39 Our next mod depends on what sort of bridle you have. If the answer to that is dyneema then you want to preform this one. Most of your common euro spears have been machined for an articulated bridle which are no good for dyneema. If you have an articulated bridle and are happy with it then skip this stage. This is where the needle file comes into play. What we have to do here is remove all sharp edges. If we do this carefully we can reshape without weakening the spear. Once this is done we will finish it by polishing the surface with dyneema and some form of cutting compound. 4 Polish shooting line hole 6:06 Here all we are doing is running the dyneema through the shooting line hole with the cutting compound until the machine lines fade. So to recap on what we have done: Polished the holding side of the flopper to avoid cutting the meat, Pinch the flopper to stop it falling back down after we have shot a fish. Polished the notch to avoid wear of the dyneema bridle. And lastly we have polished the shooting line hole to improve the life of the shooting line. There we have it, now all you have to do is string the gun, we will go through that in an other video.

Replacing Your Flopper
 
07:34
Hello Spearfishing community, today I'm going to show you how to change your flopper. For different reasons you may find yourself wanting to change your flopper for example some diver prefer the flopper on the bottom and then others on the top. Some divers change to a different size. Tools 0:45 O.k, so tools we will need here is a file or grinder, a small hammer and a sturdy vice. A lot of spears use the same size pin of 2mm in diametre. Now we are not going to cheat and buy a pin as many would not have access to these. So what we are going to use is a bike spoke. Don't go stealing this from the nearest kids bike you see. Just go down to your bikeshop and buy a good quality stainless steel spoke. Make sure it is stainless. Removing flopper 1:12 So first we need to remove the old flopper which we will do by grinding off the head of the pin. Then push it out. Making the new pin 2:23 Now we have to bur over one end of the spoke with a small hammer if you have one, otherwise a big hammer will have to do. Stainless spokes are quite hard so don't try beating it into shape with one hard blow. Instead we will tap it around the edge slowley burring it over. This could actually take five minutes before you have enough of head. Installing pin 4:11 Once this is done we will put the whole spoke through so that we can measure how much of the spoke we want to cut off. Cutting off to leave 3mm out proud we then slowley burr over this end of the pin too. And there you have, one repind spear. Now if your watching this video I would also recommend you watch the Pimp your Spear video which shows the mods before you take out your gun to use. I hope you enjoyed this video and if you would like to see more like it, please subscribe.

Finding clear water at Cuvier was great. The swell was a challenge and so was the current. A great day to try out My Beuchat Magneto 95, with a winged muzzle, one and a half rap and a magnetic rail.
