Biggest Rob Allen Speargun?

Hey guys, simply would like to know what the longest speargun Rob Allen makes or has made in the past. The biggest I have seen for sale online is 150cm and the biggest i have seen in person is 160cm, so thats why i am wondering if they make or have made bigger than that. Also if anyone wants to part ways with a 160cm (or up if it exists) RA, please let me know. Thank you!

Re: Biggest Rob Allen Speargun?

When I was in the shop I heard from the Dive Factory of a 1700 RA, but that was some time ago now.
I do not recall whether it was a one-off or in production.
I do remember that it had incredible range and accuracy and was being developed for this skittish smaller fish sitting out at just beyond range of the Euro guns of the time. Thin bands and I think a 6mm shaft.
Regards all.
Mike.

Re: Biggest Rob Allen Speargun?

I had a Rob Allen "Tuna" which Rob sent me. I think it was a 160. It was long. Worked okay with 2 bands, but when I tightened them up, the barrel would flex. That's the issue with a simple Tube Long Gun, you get a longer gun, but you can't power it up much and need to use a thinner shaft. Aimrite makes some longer Tube guns, but they are using cuttlefish tubes and their tubes are double walled.

Hi nilsonov,

1. I am not hunting with such a gun. Sorry if the idea came across that I was.

2. At the time I am talking about, roller guns were not available. I am talking of around 20 years ago, maybe even longer.

Thanks,
Mike.
