I am planning to get a SS gun.but I live way out in Texas and cant try one out first to help me decide which one to get. I will mainly use it on the oil rigs . I was thinking either a paulope or a rhino .My only concern on the Paulope is the weight as before I order it I wont be able to feel it in the water .any input from you guys would be appreciated.

My .02 I would go with the rhino. I have a 54 SS COMM. teak.

Is'nt the Paulope negatively bouyant? That's the one I would want for bottom shooting. But, I don't know a thing about rig shootin'....

i havent ever done any rig diving but i would think you want either teak or a rhino. not something neg. bouyant.

I too see an SS gun in my future. The paulope is negatively buoyant. So much so that I thought that I read that you can't carry an extra shaft on the gun (if that is important to you - it would be to me).
I'm sure that Spear One can clear all this up for us.

I have been discussing this with spear one and that was the impression I got .that I likely wouldnt want an extra shaft on a paulope gun. but on the rigs here I dont know if I would want an extra shaft .But I think I am leaning towards the Rhino. but with everything I have heard about the SS guns i think Is the best choicefor me.

I have a 52 Paulope Comm which I haven't had the opportunity to hunt with yet, so I don't know the weight issues personally. I've heard more than once that the weight can take some getting used to, though.
In either case, I got a deal I couldn't refuse on the Paulope, so I figured I could handle any weight issues since the gun is ten times better than my previous one! Now if everything else was equal and you gave me the choice, I'd probably go with a Rhino.
And regardless of your choice, you're still shooting an SS gun, and that's what's important!
