Question Monoroller Speargun Question

Oct 12, 2018
I've never owned, nor used a rollergun of any sort before. I'm interested in this Italian monoroller and it appears to be simple but I want to make sure I understand how it works and the limitations before I purchase something this expensive.

Here's what I'm looking at:

It looks as if you load it like a normal gun, but then flip it over and there are 3 different length positions for the bottom to be stretched to and it requires a metal rod / tool to get a good grip on it. My main question is: will the gun still work (at a lower power) if I leave it on the first position and forego using the tool? I can see many situations where I would need to load the gun quickly and it appears to take a considerable amount of time to get it all set up between shots. Also, is it possible to fully load the rubbers without this tool? I prefer to limit the amount of gear I need to carry/have on me whenever possible, especially when shorediving.

Thank you for your time!
