Thumbs up General use guns

I am looking for a multi-use gun for mostly reefs and maybe an occasional Carribean blue water dive. I have the Andre Platinum 160 for my big pelagics and a Hammerhead 110 that I'm looking to upgrade. Anybody have experience with the Riffe Padauk 2? Other thoughts?

Had a Riffe 3 and couldn't stand it. It was really inconsistent and I sold it. Others my have different experience. The Riffe Euro are supposed to be really excellent. How much are you looking to spend?

This is a good General use gun if you are talking about chumming up Muttons and Cuberas but also being able to take a good shot at a passing Big Kingfish or Wahoo.

Re: General use guns

Looking to spend in the $400 range. I already have the Andre which is a beast. Looking for something around the 110 to 120 cm but more stable than my Hammerhead.

Re: General use guns

Riffe euro enclosed track or just the magnetic track. Quiet and easy to load a big spear with the magnet. I hate to say it because I think its priced too high but you wont find a guy who doesn't love that gun.
