    Hey Joerg,<br><br>Think you could post a closeup of the pouch attachment on this one?<br><br>I've got some 70, 80, 90 and 100 lb tubing to use and I'm wrestling with attaching the pouch to rubber so thick!<br><br>Thanks

    In fact, it took me some time to figure that out...<br><br>Knot in tube did not work, the rubber is too thick, impossible to put enough pressure through it even with the constriction knot. <br><br>I ended up using a length of paracord with a knot at the ends. You put the loop around the tip of the rubber, then you tie a string around it (just behind the knots) using the constriction knot. Then, you strengthen the string with rubber bands, wrapped tightly around. <br><br>I use this method for both the fork and pouch attachment. <br><br><img src="http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/4020/attachmentspeargun.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="In%20fact,%20it%20took%20me%20some%20time%20to%20figure%20that%20out...%20%20Knot%20in%20tube%20did%20not%20work,%20the%20rubber%20is%20too%20thick,%20impossible%20to%20put%20enough%20pressure%20through%20it%20even%20with%20the%20constriction%20knot.%20%20I%20ended%20up%20using%20a%20length%20of%20paracord%20with%20a%20knot%20at%20the%20ends.%20%20http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/4020/attachmentspeargun.jpg" border="0" alt="">
