Just thought I'd show you all a couple of pics of my visit to Totemsub factory in Rome. The gun I am holding is a 120 Tahiti with double 16mm bands. Trigger mech will hold double 20's no problem.

The people I am with are Fabrizio D'Agnano (President) and Adriano who finished building one of my guns whilst I watched.

The third pic is of a few guns hanging out to dry.

Not a bad way to spend my honeymoon eh!!!!

Hello Shaneshac,
Congratulations for the wedding and especially for the honeymoon place around the Italy esp. around the totemsub!!
did you buy that tahiti 120,it seems very elegant,if you buy double 16mm why didn't you prefer double 20??
And the Shaft wasn't really 7 mm??
Greetings from Turkey

Each gun with reel costs about 300 euros. Fabrizio and Adriano only make 3 to 400 guns a year as they are hand made. I got a 7mm shaft on the Tahiti.

I got twin 16's as I want to get used to that power and then increase as needed. I bought a few metres of 20mm rubber for that.

Spearfishing is extremely popular in Italy and most of the original spearing brands are italian. Cressi, Omer etc.

Tuomo if you are interested in a gun PM me and I will explain a few more details.

The rubber is made specially for them. 19.5mm 100% pure latex bands.

The gun comes with a 2 year warranty.

Generally european brands does not produce bulk rubber, and most of the latex bands manufactures in US.

Hi shaca,

I was just interested about the price since the gun looks quite sweet. Unfortunately i'll have no use at all for gun like that here, and it would be rather difficult to convince my wife that i actually need that gun.. ;) otherwise that would be a sweet thing to own.

Looking forward to read your reviews on that beauty.

Tuomo,

They also make the Aqua model which us the same shape as the one I am holding but with a thinner barrel. THey make this in 75cm I think. This gun is desingned for use in rough water for smaller species and is used a lot in italy for cave hunting.

Check it out on the www.totemsub.it website.
