    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...

    The Russian "Kobra" is a hydropneumatic speargun built using the forward latching design employed in the "RPP" pneumatic speargun, among others. The main difference is the extensive use of molded plastic parts in the mid-handle and muzzle components which were previously all-metal items, plus a...

    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...

    Freediving Apps for Apple Watch?

    I've been looking for freediving apps and not having much luck. Anyone know of any good apps? I'd hate to buy a watch just for diving if an application already exists for my Apple Watch. Thanks

    Pathos Open vs Pathos Open Pro. What's the difference?

    What is the difference between the two? As far as I can see they have the seam tube, trigger mech, handle (D1), muzzle, well, pretty much everything. The only difference I can spot is that: - The Open has one band, and a notched spear. - The Open Pro has two bands, and a spear with sharkfins...

    Ultimate Speargun Properties Calculator

    Hi folks, I've been working on a spreadsheet based calculator tool that would be useful to any manufacturer/home builder.

    Speargun configuration & dive float/buoy tweaks

    We were blessed with much better than usual conditions on a recent trip to Cornwall. Consequently, after just 1 dive with my trusty default speargun, a 75mm Omer XXV (super-light, slim speargun), I switched to my little used 90cm Omer XXV and used that for all of the rest of the week. The...
