Trials with the humongous tbar speargun. The spearguns shoots Tbars instead of shafts. The damage, the trauma, the carnage is quite effective at killing fish instantly. It's the instant killshot machine for walleye, bass, perch, malachigan, hell any fish. I can't wait to try it on large bass!
The prototype was tested with three of the four bands I intended to use. I also added one kilogram of led to the stock mid test. This made is almost neutral.
The fish shot were walleyes, perch, malachigan and I did some tests on carps.
The advantages include :
stops anything in it's tracks,
the bar costs nothing,
the bar is indestructible,
you can put any amount of power to the bar without fear of bending it,
you don't need an integral track,
you can add a slip tip without changing the balistics,
the inertia of the bar makes it almost unstoppable (high penetration),
all the bands can be attached at the very back of the bar (no waste).
The disadvantages include:
it's very heavy,
takes a while to load,
the recoil is severe,
taking the shaft back up is like dragging an anchor back to the surface,
it scares children.
