Just received an email from Spearfishing.co.uk. Although I have never been a fan of Picasso gear, the specification for this inverted roller really is quite impressive, if you are into the whole roller speargun thing - it seems overkill for my needs but perhaps your needs are different:


3x14.5mm bands, carbon barrel, 7mm spear, barrel lengths from 85cm-140cm. The spec., at least, is impressive; the price less so, at more that 3x the price of my Apnea Amarok 95 roller speargun (which already seems like it might be a tad overpowered for my needs!). But its fun to gaze and wonder and theorize sometimes :D

Ive tested an invert roller and i was amazed with the design, power, precision , how easy was to load ( takes time to get used tho) and absolutely no recoil
This are the specs

But i find it its not an everyday speargun, and more efficient in open water , or waiting , Takes a bit load when ur not used to , and with current and swell.
Nevertheless its always good to have one or couple in your "arsenal" .
The no recoil blowed my mind i was like: " oh no...did the wish bones broke?did the shaft left?" And ...Yes everything was as it should and the shaft left the barrel as expected ....6 Meters away from my locations with not so good visibility it fully pierced the target , ive tested at sea by the way , i find it a better way to really check how a speargun performs instead of a pool, due to the natural environment
