S.O.S! Hello everyone!
I am trying to understand what is the most common term in English to define an ARBALETE (in italian): a speargun that uses bands. I found roller gun, rubber speargun, band speargun, rubber-powered speargun, band-powered speargun.
I would like to know which one is the most natural to english native speakers.
Thank u.
