Hey how do you attach the line to the spear shaft on this model? Just got it brand new and the only way i can see is a hole on bottom of spear shaft but then how will that work when it has to go insided the gun or trigger mec.
you cannot tie a knot it will catch on the end of the gun break the line and the shaft will keep going, DANGEROUS!!! it is supposed to be a copper grommit but you cant find them anywhere!, Don't risk using it it could injure or kill someone when the line breaks:(
This was my first speargun. I am still a beginner by I bagged a couple fish this summer here in the Northeast.
I wondered the same question. Attach the line to the end of the spear with a bowline knot. Use a big enough loop so that the knot of the bowline is outside the trigger mechanism. There is plenty of space around the shaft at the tip of the gun to allow everything to flow smoothly out.
Should work for you Tim.
Thanks for your Help Tom!!
yes, that is true...in other models that whole in the back of the spear shaft isn't that far away, but you have to force it in...plus when you wet it and use it a bit it will get thinner and slide better in there. Otherwise most people do not use the line that comes with the comanche but make their own setting with some thinner crimped heavy test line...
I used a basic no slip loop knot. The knot is about 2 inches from the hole.
Just tie with a bowline knot. This way you can keep the actual knot away from the shaft with at least 2 inches. When pressing spear into trigger mech, just make sure line is tight going forward. Once spear is set in trigger mech This way line does not clash with trigger mech), you do not need to worry about line pointing forward anymore.
Use the bowline knot where the knot is away from the whole so it does not get in to the mechanism. There are many examples on youtube. Also use a bungee on the other end of the line. good luck
Model is a Cressi-sub Comamche 1m
