    Mares Bandit 75cm/95cm? Good spec. but very disappointing execution :(

    I just came across the Mares Bandit which seems to have an excellent feature set/spec. Similar to more expensive railguns. It could make an excellent entry-level priced speargun (well under $100 in some places - don't over pay for it) with intermediate and advanced spearing capabilities. But I...

    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...

    So I have been getting more and more into freediving and decided it's time to get a good freediving watch/computer. I would really like something I could use for scuba as well as freediving and the new Smart Dive computer from Mares seems like a really nice option. However, I also found that...

    Mares spearfishing wetsuits - anyone use them? Review/sizing?

    Hi, Do you have a Mares wetsuit? I am considering purchasing a Mares spearfishing wetsuit (or perhaps just pants) and I would be very interested to hear from anyone who already has one. e.g. - How accurate are their size charts? (There XL size looks like it might be a good fit for me :) - other...
