Are these blue slings still usable only the blue outside layer of rubber is cracked.
I think if either break it couldn't snap back and leave a mark slings are to short to snap back to rear of gun correct.

I haven’t used my 41” speargun in proballey over 8 years it’s been in the closet that long.

Would like to have it on hand this cobia season.

edit: I'm shooting from the deck of a vessel.

So are these slings still usable
Thanks STB

It looks like an abrasion, like it scrubbed up against something.

steve the brain 03-25-2018 02:42 PM

actualley I think it's dry rot like a trailer tire.

this area of sling is under alot of preasure the rest of slings look good.
Thanks

8 years old, replace them.

Definetly not. We use about 36 similar bands on our Rockwall, broke 4 yesterday that looked similar. All less than 6 months old

Best way to punch yourself in the nuts with both fists at the same time on earth. Especially from the deck of a boat. Then poke a hole through the top of your right hand. Ask me how I know.

Replace them or they will break on the money shot

Yeah definitely change those bands.

And always know when your safety is off....or you'll see the biggest gag you've ever seen and just scare him away.

Canít believe Iím the first one pointing this out but, I gotta ask is your plan really to shoot the cobia from the boat? Seems like a great idea to shoot one and pull in a green cobia or shoot one and not pull it in...
