You are right Cece.
Moreover there were many problems with the first release of the T20 trigger mech. Then if you buy an Omer Master America, be sure you have the updated version of the trigger mech....

Regards,
Jeff

hiya memo

thats exactly what i was talking about. Exact same gun, just the handle is white.

Thanx guys for the info regarding totemsub vs america. I hate having to make decisions. Will probably just have to save some money and then buy both guns !!:D :D :D

I do love wooden guns, but don't like the mutiple bands and recoil that goes with it. I'm also looking at a riffe or wong for our YF tuna. Will probably get one of those blue water canons later in the year.

First priority now is to get a digital camera!!

Hiya

Memo is correct once again!!! :D :D The whole idea is to give more grip on the handle so that is whats used to get a rough finish.

Just curious, has anybody actually used the Omer America. I'd like first hand reports because you only get distorted views on products if people haven't tested them themselves.

Hi,

I haven't actually used one, but I've held one in my hand. The gun felt very good and looked extremely nice. I havent had the possibility to test it though. I have been considering buying one this summer, but I'll see.

Miles,

I will be attending the Omer stand on the 12th- 13th March at the EUDI show. I will try to get some pics of their new products and give them some grief on Murats behalf ;)

I will let you know what its like when I get back after the 15th.

Hi guys,

I've seen pic's of the gun and done quite a bit of reading up on it. Seems to be a well thought out product.

I've got a omer mimetic 5mm wetsuit, omer snorkel, omer aries mask (spare mask) and omer flat hunt knife and am quite happy with their products. Well, the knife doesn't keep its edge for long, but a regular sharpening sorts that out. My 90 Excalibur was also ok. (now my girlfriend gun!!!) I've also just recently acquired a omer 100 and 30 reels. Very happy with the 100's performance and it looks wicked too!!!!:D :D

Just curious, what gripes did murat have???

Tuomo, does the gun look just as wicked in real life as it does in the pictures??

Memo, some more pic's are always welcome!!!:D :D

Shaneshac, i know that you're as enthuisiastic about your totemsub's as i'm about my Rabitechs. Have you compared them to a rail gun yet (well, actually a South African railgun at least RA or Rabitech) Would like to see the outcome. I recall a while back, Hawain Skin Diver had a accuracy test of 1.1m guns. The RA was shot only once and had a near perfect score, but was deemed too difficult to load :confused: . If my memory serves me correct, the omer got the best results. Would actually love to get somebody on the forum to do a similar test.

Regards

hiya Rui

Thanx for the pictures!! That is one wicked looking gun!!!!
It's a sin to have such a gun and not being able to use it!!! :D Don't you just hate it when work interferes with your spearfishing?;)

Anyways, looks like i'm definitely going to get me a omer master america.

Shanesac, whats up with totemsub??. I've sent them an email on Wednesday asking for a price and approximate building and delivery time and they still haven't gotten back to me. Not very impressed !!:naughty

hi guys

Miles, I had problem with T20 handle other problems solved after some modifying with tools...

Hi guys,

Memo my speargun has 100 cm barrel lenght which the length that I use more often. There is another version of the Master America with an opening for a second loop band but one good 20 mm band is enough for me. You can download the Omer 2004 catalog in there website, it has pics of both of them. http://www.omersub.com/omer/

Unlike Murat I love the T20 handle! All my guns feature the T20 handle, the new and the old one. I got the new ones in the beginning of January and the trigger mech is fine.
In fact the new handle is stronger than the old with the down sides of the old covered. The trigger mech of the T20 is a little harder than the Excalibur mech, but I guess that his just a question of habit.

From top to bottom…

Master 16 - 106cm
Master – 96cm
MB 16 – 86 cm
Master America – 100cm
New T20 Millennium carbon – 90 cm
