One question Murat: Why do you want such a powerful gun in Cyprus?

Then why Alluminium shoots lower? May be you just shot longer distance so spear fall down at certain point. You know it, but i didn't got it why it shoot low.

I don't need such a powerfull gun in Cyprus. I am wondering why they need it in greece?:)

Ivan,

Did you tried Totem's video to get opinion what it looks like hunting in med? Maay be Shane gives you some review about them. I would like to hear as well.

Both Alberto March's videos are excellent.

You should see the "Deep Ambush" video from Dapiran (L'aguatto Profondo)

The guy catches everything from a couple of bream to a 50 kilo tuna with a 106 cm eurogun.

Had to dive to 47 meters to give the tuna a second shot. Used his RIB as a bouy.

Well....

Last year i heard a local spero shot two tuna in one day. One weighted 150kg other is 40kg. He used OMER but don't know which model. My cousin told me the story. He said that guy dove to 50 meter and shoot the fishes from downside directly to head.So the shaft penetrate through the gills.First i did not belive it. But after reading Shane's story about Tuna...... I don't know. Why these guys don't report those catches. Probably they don't aware of the net?

Anyway, Shane did you watched Totem's movies?

I think most people don't know they can apply for a world record.

Most times the fish would fail the criteria as your fishing partner gives you a hand if needed (ie a second shot)

The totem mpeg on the site don't show much. The Tahiti mpeg I think could be improved. Double banded speargun for a small bream. Overkill I think.

I have not watched the full Totem video though!

Does it matter wheather you shoot the tuna in 1 meter of water or 50 meter of water? It shouldn't as long as you drop the gun as soon as you shoot.That why they use float right? Not mentioning tangling.

Does anyone knows about Fabio Antonelli movies?

Well...

I just looked picasso web site. I noticed carbon coated shafts. Does any of you using it? Does it achive what its advertise?

I first saw this year ago in Quentin's web page from New Zeland. probably he sold the idea to Picasso.

hi

Murat im sure if the Tuna was in 1m he would have shot it or anyone for that matter, but I imagine they are found in deeper water in the Med ??. So can you or I shoot that same tuna at 47m on a breathold :hmm I very much doubt it and that is what puts him above most.

Learning how to find fish in your local area is something that we all learn with time, I was always taught to call this fish sense ie the ability to find fish by using all your knowlege and gut feelings about YOUR area on the day.

Most spearos can stalk fish good enough and easy enough in shallower water, but it would take a super human effort to shoot those fish in 47m of water. Its very easy to say yeah this guy shot a Tuna in 47m of water so what, just think about how hard that would be :cool:

Fabio Antoni is one of Italy's top spearos, if I remember correctly he placed 3rd individually at Zadar (Croatia) back in 98.

I have never used a Carbon shaft but some "Old mates" ive mine have and said they snapped easily, something about being to brittle :duh

cheers
