Diving was great! Only shot one fish. I was a little tense on that first dive, but it went great. 2nd dive was on the dreaded Chevron! It was a little wierd goin back down there but it turned into a great dive. I did shootan AJ there but it pulled off and swam away bleeding! How did you guys do? Steve

I lost a shaft at the Tex and the chevron within 1 week. Both had black mono with black crimps not the Riffe crimps.

Nice gesture. I hope it gets to its owner.

Man, you went back to the Chevron this soon. I would have stayed away from that place for quite a bit of time after your story there based on the bad mojo. But good on you for keeping with the sport. Hopefully, you can find the rightfull owner of the shaft. Good on you for trying. :clap

I lost a riffe shaft at Tenneco about a month ago and I restring my cords as well, but this should still be factory Riffe hardware...black cord, silver crimp......should have the riffe flopper tip instead of a biller....The shaft came with the wrong threads....My dive bud lost it for me while shooting large AJ's.....Come home to papa......
