Beuchat Marlin Oceania 110

Looks like Beuchat has made a South African style railgun, at about half the current price of a Rob Allen railgun in the UK. Looks good.

The spear is a little thinner (7mm vs. 7.5 on RA Tuna 2x16mm), the mono is 1.8mm v. 2mm. But it has sharkfins v. notches. Is that a raised handle and reverse trigger mech? And loading butt.

I found a 28mm railed aluminium barrel to be overly thick (lots of lateral drag vs. 25mm unrailed carbon barrel) and very muzzle heavy on my old 90cm railgun.

If you want/need a more affordable but high spec. SA-style railgun, looks like it might be just the ticket. Yes, it would be interesting to hear from somebody who is already using one.
I've bought this gun a few years back but never really used it cause off the shelf it did not look like Hawaii ready! It looks like this gun was made for Ausie spearing where the fish are big but close. The twin bands are large but long so the pull is short but powerful. But as of now I need the 110 ( which is the size I have) because I plan on doing some clear water diving. I will try 14mm twin bands but shorter. And I'll see how it goes from there if I have to still make other adjustments.
