Carbon cannons

Alright guys, picking your experts' brains here.

I want to upgrade from an aluminum 140 (three 14mm bands, 8mm shaft) to a carbon gun to chase large yellows and wahoo, and occasionally use for BF when I can't get my hands on a wooden tuna cannon.

The go-to carbon behemoth everyone recommends is the Oceanborn 145. https://www.spearamerica.com/collect...n-l-e-speargun
What do I miss in performance if I go for a bit of a less expensive option like the Picasso Magnum BW Bluewater 140, with an 8mm shaft and three 14mm bands, or its 120 roller sister https://www.spearamerica.com/collect...25251987816512

The OB is monocoque and 4 bands, the Picasso has a cuttlefish pipe but handle and muzzle are plastic.

Let me know!
