    Does adding a second band require cutting?

    I am a new spear-fisherman so this may be a dumb question. I have a cressi moicano speargun and when you look it up in the description it always says that it has room to add a second band. I can not find where to add a second band and was wondering if the "O" part has to have a small slice to...

    Question Najade sprint vs cressi pro star

    I do competitive finswimming and I was wondering which is better considering the price of each one of them.. Are the najade fins worth the extra money and will they make me any faster than using the cressi pro star

    Cressi wetsuit tears

    Hey all, I’ve got a Cressi camo 5mm wetsuit. I’ve used it maybe 10 times and there are loads of little tears on the inside from pulling it on. I’ve always been really careful. Does anyone else have this issue? Just bought some wetsuit glue to dab into the tears, but is this normal? Never had it...

    Masks with GoPro mount. None of the big manufacturers make them, why?

    I'm puzzled. Nowadays the GoPro is more or less standard diving equipment regardless what kind of diving you're in to; scuba, freedive, spearfishing, snorkeling... we all carry our GoPros! I've been looking around quite a bit for a mask with a GoPro mount, but the range is limited to say the...

    Looking for advice on spray painting Freedive fins

    Hola! I am new to the forum. I have recently purchased a pair of Cressi Gara 3000 in gray [picture attached]. I don't find the gray particularly flattering and am considering spray painting them a solid black (including the foot pockets). Any thoughts on this? Will it look uneven and weird...

    Do you ice your catch ASAP or string em up?

    Hey guys, so yesterday I went out In search for some calico. Instead I ended up with about 6 nicely sized Opaleyes. I was probably in the water for about an hr. When I would catch one I would string it up right away on my buoy & search for my next catch. I forgot my knife at home so I didn't...

    CRESSI SL STAR maintenance / servicing in Melbourne, Australia?

    Hi, Does anyone know where there is a Cressi servicer in Melbourne, I can't seem to find one online. I'm a bit worried about the exposed part of my piston (the part that's in contact with sea water), it seems to have some rust on it and I don't want that rust spreading near the seals.
