Well...

Pretty high tech guns but don't deserve that money. First of all it has no rail. As i writer said shaft can hit titanium muzzle while swing around. Muzzle uses screw on type bands which has no benefit but high price and fixed length. Barell and handle is one piece carbon thats good makes it rigid gun. I think if it had rail and open muzzle it would be great.

I found that gun around 300-350 euro range in 115cm. I would consider buying one at that price range.

In my opinion TOTEMSUB Pelagos is much better than this gun. Also it has dealer in Türkey.

Pelagos is sure an elegant weapon and also a functional one. But my vote goes to C4.

I respect but let me remind you something. When you are down and ready for shot you will need reliable and best performing wepon rather than cool looking starwars toy.

Think twice before you buy such an expensive and important equipment. I am regretfull to don't know about Totem dealer in Türkey so i lost the chance to buy pelagos.

Just to add fuel to the fire, here's what a 115cm ‘Starwars toy’ did for an Italian friend of mine named Peppo Biscarini while diving with me one day in Florida. The cobia weighed 62 lbs. Notice the gun in the left hand side of the picture. The thing I don't like about the C4 is that it doesn't have an automatic line release. Instead it has what OMER calls an alligator clip. I don't like alligator clips because they don't hold the shooting line tight enough for my liking.

Yes, yes...

C4 is more than average gun but man you have to pay 340 euro to it. All i meant to say is there are better guns at that price. There is even RA Saracen to the half price. I didn't use it but all i heard was good. It has also has PURE carbon barell + molded in rail.

C4 guns have a lot of recoil due to their very light structure. This can cause problems if you use a lot of power.
There is a new C4 130 coming out with facility to use a double set of bands.

I heard about the 130 gun, but I think 115 will be a better all around aspetto gun. and recoil should be a problem I know... I'm still negotiating with C4 so we will all see what should I get at the end..

at the end, I dont think C4 is a bad gun, especially I have to opportunity to get without charges of shipment and duty.
