Re: New Speargun suggestions

i use a mako predator pro, open muzzle with the shark fin, and a single band, i think it was like 120$ use the rest of your money to safety up either a reel, or a float and line....

i love it!!

Mako has allot of good products, you can be set for 500$ and they have a ton of followers and great customer service...

Get a 110 Rob Allen , every other rail gun is a wanna bee.
Mako's are good though.

Without details about what kind of hunting you do its hard to advice.
If you serious about our game you will end up with several guns anyway. Bluewater gun will be usless while looking under the ledge in 5 foot vis...

Re: New Speargun suggestions

What do you want to shoot with it and at what range? Scuba or freedive? How experienced are you?

A simple railgun like the MAKO or ROB ALLEN allen is good until you get more experienced if you aren't already. Taking big fish isn't about having the biggest baddest gun but the technique so a simple railgun is fine for most fish.

Damn, for $500 at Mako you could get a gun, wetsuit, fins, mask, snorkel, floatline and float (or reel). Or I guess you could just get a Koah.

Got a Mako 120 a few months ago - shoots straight and powerful. KOAS and RA's a great guns too. For $500, you've got a lot of options.
