:duh i am new to freediving and i am running into SO many problems. I have worked out the suit problem, i need a custom one. I think i have the fin problem worked out, Sporasub H.Dessault Open Heel, I have a size 14 US or 49 Euro foot, i will also be weraing a 3mm booty, so i will need a size 15 or 50, does anyone have any other recommendations? But the serious issue is the gun. I live in Southern California, right near Catalina. The fish i will be targeting are Halibuts, White Sea Bass, Yellowfin, Sheephead, and smaller fish like sand/calico bass, sculpin, rockfish,etc. I will be fishing rocks, reefs, kelp beds but also have the ability to fish deeper water for white sea bass. I spoke with Roger Yazbeck of Picasso and he recommends his Century gun. I spoke with the Riffe's and they suggested their guns. I just can't seem to get a good solid straight answer. Should i just go with a picasso 110,120cm for general all purpuse (even for halibuts...i am just worried about the shafts getting wrecked) and then get a Riffe for blue water...something like a MetalTech (i was also told that metaltechs aren't worth their pricetags)? I am going to Maui in Dec/Jan and i want to go after some big Ulua 20-100+lb fish, so with that in mind, what type of blue water gun would suffice? and i am looking for guns i can get here in the US (riffe, omer, sporasub, picasso, sporasubs, etc.) please help guys. i reall appreciate any and all info you give.
