They do look pretty good. I tried to get any reviews on their guns, but with my scarce Turkish (and poor Google Translate) I was able to find very little info. Apparently, it is a new company and there are no real-life pictures of their products. I would rather base my opinion on their guns looking at photos @ images.google, but there are none. I m sure that pictures we see are after a "slight touch" of photoshop. =]

From Italy: ConteSub :king

It started just for passion, with a limited production for friends, then became a company. Their guns (well known as Arbaconte=Arbalete+Conte) are renowned for the clean lines and the solid build.
They also make their own trigger units.

That is an interesting trigger mech, I think maybe the first that I have seen mounted from above? Are those ballast plates beneath the reel?

I like the 3-point star shaped line-release - elegantly simple. It look me a while to figure out what I was looking at.

Now, this: from Darwin Australia these impressive creations from Ace Spearguns: very good looking carbon and wood work. Comments? "I want one!". :wave

Arriba El Magnarpon!
This creation by Pablo Magnano is one of the strangest bandguns ever seen. A little foldable speargun supposed to be easy loading. And...unbelievably weird.

The mechanical advantage of this design is questionable, plus the hinge in the stock will experience twisting stresses as the operator straightens the gun up to cock it. Then there is the drag inducing bulk of the muzzle "handle" at the front end of the gun. Pulling a band load directly back with the rear of the gun braced against the body is much more efficient than this arrangement. That is why you have not seen it before. Lever systems work for you if the point of application of the force exerted by you is much further away from the pivot position than the anchor point from where the band is pulling. Lever cocked rollerguns have a mechanical advantage due to the greater distance between the band pull anchor on the lever and the end of the cocking lever. The lever cocked band guns tend to be novelty items as even lever operated, multi-swing ratchet loading types have failed to make it in the marketplace.

A new brand from Florida, USA: its' called SubSea Spearguns.

Their ET woodies look very well carved, and the design has some pretty original features. A female-friendly company, SubSea Spearguns also offers an option for pink handle and pink enclosed track. :girlie

Here they are:
