There are tons of posts about roller guns on the forum. Maybe not specifically these models but most of them are comparable.

Is this your first speargun? Why do you consider these models?

Yea rollers overall are a whole forum for itself. No got a salvimar metal for 2 years now, and built a wood gun with a good friend of mine( lost it on the fiest day #beginners luck) now want an additional rollergun to go for some dentex / tuna. Broke it down to these to because they are pretty unique and also affordable. Atm im leaning a bit more to the pathos but i hoped that someone with expirience could give some advice :)

Rob Allen, 110cm carbon barrel roller speargun, 14mm rubbers, 7mm spear? RA Breakaway barb spear?

I like the look of the Pathos but I own a Turkish Apnea Amarok, great value at the time. I expect the Salvimar is good too.

Oh yea forgot totally about rob allen guns. Never heard of the apnea brand, ill look at this too thanks!
When we go for tuna ill definetly will setup breakaway spear with an additional breakaway system, for dentex i think i go with a normal 6.5mm+reel.

Fyi I still haven't tried my Apnea roller, with covid lock downs and poor visibility. I was contacted by a Turkish spearo yesterday who has the same roller and wanted to know how to stop the line tangling/locking up the spear. Probably just a line routing issue but, maybe not.

The RAs have become expensive in the UK in recent years and they are rather bulky and heavy for our modestly sized fish, and tip heavy in the short sizes we use most. However, for large fish and in longer barrel lengths, they are more than worthy of consideration.

There is an wooden Italian roller that gets rave reviews, I forget the name. Expensive though.
