How do I cope with this? I equalize by holding my nose and pushing but I am aware of other techniques...

    Picked up Mares Frontiersman Competition line Pneumatic

    So I picked up this speargun at a yardsale for 15$ and was wondering what it is worth. I tested it and it fires well but the tip is slightly dented. This is the first speargun I have owned and am looking forward to using it.

    Considerably lower holds than normal?

    Hello everyone. I have only been working on dry static apnea for a couple weeks. I have worked up to about a 3:00 max, but today I am really struggling to make it to 1:30. Are bad days something that happen occasionally, is there something I might be doing that is reversing my progress? Thanks!
