Ok, I'm using a cressi comanchi 90mm. I only used it once. I shot it a few time and the mono came off the shaft. I placed an order for a mono/crimps kit that should be coming shortly. As I was or ordering the kit on Amazon the "suggestion box" showed a reel which I thought would be pretty bad ass. Now mind you I have only shot the gun about 6-7times on one dive. I was able to shoot one opal eye. Now I just started so I'm working on how the gun shoots/aims & so forth. (& dont worry I ate the boney fish) Now I plan on HOPEFULLY shooting bigger fish in the near future. Would getting a reel help make my shot go further? & would it be easier to reel in a fish? I'm currently diving in 20-30ft if that makes any difference.
