Barrett,

If you're going DIY, checkout this post:

Spear Pics

If my dusty old memory serves, copper tubing was used for the extended version...

Hope this helps...somehow.

Stay safe and good luck.

oh, good lookout, Tim. Thanks for the link. However, I want to make mine as an open spear, not a closed one. Can you email me a couple of good pics of the open spear to nineoftheonering@yahoo.com?

Thanks.

Barrett,

Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of the extended spear. I did awhiles back, ICONs mod I think, but when my old comp crashed, I lost everything...

Maybe, someone else around can help you out...Good luck!

Stay safe.

Tim.

MR is doing the spear, so maybe you could wait and if you wanted an open spear you could modify that piece.

I built one years ago from the Icons molds. My partner and I extended the piece and now it resides in phillipies collection, or he was at least restoring that spear for someone else.

I have a mold on the spear and hope to make a custom spear sometime, they are just a beast to cast!

I started planning one a while back, & had the working pnumatics diagramed out, but all my info is on my old harddrive I've trying to salvage... I have a huge file of closeup pics from Philips, not sure if they are the same ones Kit posted... PVC or copper pipe should work fine, just have to sculpt & cast a centerpiece & the individual tips...

I think the weight of using nothing but copper pipes would be prohibitive to using the spear to walk around with, think about it for a sec about (12) 5'-6' copper pipes would weigh easliy about 30-40 lbs

I think if you painted the PVC black and weathered it with copper it would be just as effective

Yeah, Andrew, I smell what you're steppin' in.

I think I'll go with the PVC. I'll probably just sculpt and mold the spear tips for it, using the PVC as a guide.

Are all the spear tips pretty much the same?

Please backup or burn a photoCD of pics so we don't loose more reference pics. Got some cool ones here myself to burn including a shot of the skull mask not yet posted on this site to my knowledge. Great detail! keep the pics coming!

I just purchased some PVC pipe over the weekend and started my spear. My idea of using an umbrella to extend the spear will work but its limited. I now have a new idea I'm going to test out tomorrow night and I think everyone will be happy with the results. I racked my brains all day to figure out something and its time to test it. Just a teaser,but I'LL keep ya posted.
