CSV17 Pneumatic Antenna Launcher
The CSV17 is 17 inches long, weighs about five pounds and uses a 3″ diameter PVC pressure chamber that pumps up quicky with any tire pump and is optimized to work well with a single 12 gram CO2 cylinder per launch. It reaches up to aboout 160 feet in height and fits into an 18″ tool case. The CSV17 is available in several configurations:
- Basic Kit
- Super Kit
- Super-Zip Kit
- Deluxe PADS Super Kit (see PADS Kit)
- Pre-Assembled Option
- Launcher Accessories (see Parts and Accessories)
The CSV17 Basic Kit includes the parts for the Launcher. Assembly requires PVC Primer and Cement, and a few tools. See the instructions below for details.
The CSV17 Super and Super-Zip Kits include the Basic parts above plus Loop Kit for Five Tennis balls, Ramrod, Pressure Safety Relief valve and tap for tapping the holes into the pressure chamber.
The CSV17 Super Kit also includes a Reel mount for your fishing reel.
The CSV17 Super-Zip Kit also includes a pre-assembled Zip reel loaded with Launch line.
Ordering CSV17 Kits
The assembly instructions for the CSV17 are the same as those for the CSV19. Only a few parts are different. Prior to ordering you should review the assembly instructions and required tools:
CSV17 Assembly Service
The CSV17 Assembly Service is provided for those who prefer that we assemble the launcher. This option is available on the various Super Kits. It must be purchased at the same time as the kit, and is a separately purchased option. In this case we consume the Epoxy and we drill and tap the holes so we do not supply a tap. Three Pre-Prepared Launch Balls are included instead of the Launch Ball Loop Kit and Safety Tool. The other components of the Super Kits are included with the shipment. Building adds about two weeks to the order preparation process.
Separate accessores such as Prepared Tennis Balls and Zip Reels are available on the Launcher Parts and Accessories Page
