I am thinking of buying a speargun and am looking for advice on the best type.

I believe a 90cm gun would be best for the Scottish waters I will be fishing in.

I have looked at the Sporasub Viper comp, Imersion Initiation, Cressi Comanche and Practisub Rayo X-Act, all on the Scuba Store website.

Any advice on the best gun from this list would be greatly appreciated. Would I need to buy any accesories to go with the gun I get?

I am very new to spearfishing so any advice owuld be of great benefit.

Brian check out the Ra railgun there should be threads about them if you go to the search function. Lots of us here use them they are a top gun and more durable then the guns you mentioned.

You will prob want two guns a 75cm and a 90cm poss even a smaller gun as well ,thats what I use in the UK whats the viz like where your diving and what fish are you after??

Matt :)
In UK your best bet would probably be either a Cressi Comanche cabon (THe one with the rail). Normal comanches are bloody good as well depending on your budget.

Sporasub vipers are good but the sporasub reels are crap. The only other reel you could user, due to the rail, would be an Omer pelagic 100 reel which would not suit you (unless you are hunting "Killer Bass")

Metalsub have a very good railgun as well which is also a good option.
