ok spearos. i think i have narrowed my speargun selection down. i think i am going to get either a Riffe Standard #2 or an Omer Aluminum 130cm gun. i figure that this will be a good choice for spearing spadefish, tautog, flounder, and amberjack. i am not sure what is a better choice. on the one hand the Omer tracks faster and is lighter, but the Riffe is stronger and seems to be more versatile with the addition of a 4th band, bigger shaft, ect. and personally i think the Riffe just looks cooler. this would be the first gun, then i would end up getting a bigger gun for bluewater. perhaps a Riffe #Island? do you all think that this is a decent plan for a first gun?
