Phil, not sure what you mean but this is the same post on spearboard. I thought I'd share it here as a lot of people aren't over there.
I do not have a side shot with bands loaded. Weather looks good this next weekend so I should be getting the gun ready soon. I'll take a picture.
(edit: Phil maybe you meant the formatting? Bill Mac, I have your line loop. I'll be getting it to you asap)
Bill McIntyre wrote:Its always interesting to see how the same post here and on Spearboard can lead in entirely different directions. In some cases that can be a plus, since its always nice to see different opinions and comments, but in other cases its just weird. I was just reading over there about concerns that the thin wood over the handle might be too weak, so I went down in the garage to look at my gun to see if I was missing something. With that stainless plate screwed to the wood, I don't know how the hell I could break it if I wanted to. I don't plan to use it as a crowbar, and its the thin wood that permits the handle to be so high in the first place.
Ar 15 grips is another example - I use 25$ hogue grips (usa) on mine - and on the few other comapaies i have seen with ar type handle systems- they have the A2 grips for 4$ on them. If you allow customers to see and feel both - they will go for the hogue - 100% of the time- it's no contest.

I may band myself from there pretty soon.
I also just got a Mythicon Erevos and the CF is really sweet on that gun. It shoots great too. The thing I like about the Abellan in comparison though is that my Denton 120 will float with the shaft in but it still shoots great. The Mythicon sinks like a dropping anchor. This is something that is strived for with the Denton model and an aspect I would not like to have go away. I'd imagine to add any CF over the top you would probably need to add wood? Or remove lead like you said before?
I love the fact I can have the gun float next to me while I adjust my weight belt, help a buddy, etc. all while the gun is loaded and that is with a gopro mount and gopro attached.
Bill McIntyre wrote:It sunk until I removed every bit of lead shot, Then it barely floated with the butt up about 10 degrees from vertical. Does it need that shot to shoot straight? And now I'm wondering if adding a line loop and a loading tab will sink it.
This is disappointing. Since my other Abellan floated I assumed that all Abellans floated. I knew it had a thicker shaft but I also knew that it had a lot more wood. I guess I should know better than to make assumptions.
