Hello,
I'm planning to buy a speargun for the Mediterranean sea, salvimar predathor vuoto.
The diving in shallow water in depth of 5-10 meter and visibility 10 meter approximately.
What speargun size recommend?
The fish Species saragos, mullet, red snapper ,dentex, sea bass...weight approximately 500 gr to 1 kilo and gropper 2-3 kg..

Thanks

I don't know your area, but an 85 cm which is really a 92 cm is probably a good all round gun for the Vuoto. The 100 cm is a bit long for reef areas, and is actually a 107 cm as Salvimar guns are 7 cm longer than their size designation.

Longer pneumatic spearguns can easily shoot 2 line wraps, so for an 85 cm Predathor that is 152 cm times 2 plus the length of the spear and it will be travelling reasonably straight over that distance. Guns can shoot further than that, but 3 line wraps is pushing it. A 100 cm Predathor has a 182 cm line wrap, so you get another 60 cm with two line wraps compared to the 85 cm, plus the extra length to the line side which is a few centimetres on all cocked to shoot guns.

Checked from my Predathor 100 cm and my Vintair 85 cm with some adjustment as the wrap lengths are a bit shorter on a Vintair, although the wraps there are on an angle to the line release finger in the trigger finger guard rather than straight back along the gun.

Note that your gun can carry more line, but you don't shoot line off the reel.
