The best wahoo gun

Hey guys,

I was wondering whats your take on the best gun to shoot wahoo in Florida with. Im talking more about size and style like euro vs american style guns. Let me know what you guys think is the best.

Thanks

Re: The best wahoo gun

I like a 130 cm to 150 cm rear handle gun shooting an 8 to 8.5 mm shaft with slip tip for Florida wahoo.

Cheers,

G.R.

Do you prefer wood, carbon, or aluminum for wahoo guns?

Perfect advice. Mid handle is fine too but not necessary.

I prefer wood. A well made wood gun feels more stable and handles recoil well.
