Finally I got the money for my long wanted rail gun, but have a dilema,
I've hear very good comennts about Rob allen and Rabitech guns, that are quit powerfull and accurate. I found them very similar, but preffer the extruded rail of RA, that the stick on one of Rabitech. Any other differences??
Which one should I buy?? I'm looking for a 120 cms. gun, with double 16 mm band.
I would pay attention to MILES

he knows what he is talking about regarding RSA guns.

Although the fact that he wears a Rabitech suit and promotes their guns makes me suspicious ;)

No seriously, Rabitechs have had really great reviews although i do not like sporasub band guns and the normal rabis have the same mech.

The apex looks a lot beefier and better IMHO
It depends basically where you live in SA X-frog...if Durban spearos reads this, they will probably suggest you buy Rob Allen, capetown Spearos will push Rabitech. ( The 2 provinces are where the 2 guns are manufactured)

If the truth be told, there is probably very little difference in terms of accuracy and power.

For me personally,I have always used Rabitech, and will always use Rabitech. It's simple, strong, deadly accurate and all the hitting power I need.

As Shaca says however, use Miles as your yardstick. I know guys who specialise in reef fish, or Gamefish, or Cracker, or Big Tuna...but I know of no spearos here who takes them all on with such a huge hit-rate and success rate as Miles...so maybe therein lies your answer about which gun ?? :D
