In the Mediterranean Sea I use a Pathos Sniper roller 95 or a classis Pathos laser 110. Both have comparable range but one shoots a 7.5mm shaft and the other a 6.75.

The roller shoots a little low but seems more powerful.

First you should make a choice between roller or classic setup.
Only then size becomes the next question. Personally I try to choose the shortest possible gun for the type of hunting. I like the maneuverability of a small guo so never felt the need for anything larger than 110.
More important is to learn good technique to approach the fish closer.

By "roler shots a little low but seems more powerfull" , do you mean more range, precision or just it would pierce bigger fish?
What you think about roller 105?

A roller is more powerful for its size compared to a classic setup.
With shooting low I mean that the trajectory is different from a classic setup. More arched for lack of a better word. It means you have to compensate for that by aiming slightly higher.
This is typical for all roller guns and is not at all limited to brand.

Because of the speed with which the rubber bands turn around the roller and the inherent centrifugal force the wishbone is lifted slightly this affects the trajectory of the spear causing them to shoot low.
