Hey borquaoar,

If you post this thread to spearfishing equipment section you will get more post.

I never heard of Marc Valentin guns. I heard the reel but not gun.
If you have chance to check it before you buy you can understand if its good for you or not.

there are best french guns for "serious" sparfishers" .
It loooks old fashioned but it's very good. There is only what is important , no marketing bullshit on this gun.
it is very precise without any railgun.
the best trigger i know (very sensitive trigger)

its is very similar to the old cressi apache for the handle , but i prefer valentin.
go for it!

Thank you both.

Unfortunately spetton.com is only in Spanish, so i am having some trouble navigating. Anyways.

This gun is made in France and is no BS gun... quality and simplicity is the winning formula for this gun... cheap and good.
unfortunalty there isnt a website for the valentin guns...

Here is some info i found on the Spetton website which have adopte the valentin in their new Champion speargun

Classic model in French and Spanish fishing. It was designed by Marc Valentin and after many years on the market, it is still one of the most popular spearspearguns. Because of its simplicity and reliability, this is a best-seller speargun.

HANDLE: Over-dimensioned trigger to facilitate handling with thick gloves in winter. MV handle with treble dismultiplication, less drag. Line release clip with mechanic operation mounted on bracket. Barrel guide with line retaining clip.

HEAD: Traditional design, nylon injected. This speargun absorbs the energy transmitted by 20mm rubbers. It can perform single rubber operation.

TUBE: Light aluminium, galvanized during its manufacturing process. There is a guide bracket with line retaining and releasing clip. 28mm diameter and different lengths. Refer to the Dimensions Chart.

RUBBERS, WISHBONE, SPEAR: 16mm natural rubbers. Articulated detachable wishbone with 4mm stainless steel arms. 6.25mm hardened stainless spear.

Marc Valentins are exellent guns. Personally the best trigger and handle combination I have tried. Until the early 90's many claimed it was the best gun around.

By the way what ever happened to HFL (Hellas Freediving List)?

Marc Valentin handle is, in my opinion, excellent. But I don't know about any gun with this handle and carbon barrel...
Regarding spetton, there is a new site (apparently still under construction) that offers spetton in the US:
www.spetton-usa.com

Dive safe...
