Which spear gun to choose?

G'day all,

I am looking at buying a new speargun at xmas time and I'm particulary interested in the rabitech steal pro and the riffe guns as I've heard great reviews about both types. I am after a gun around the 1.2m mark with perhaps twin 16mm rubbers. Also it needs to be fairly easy to load, powerful and of course pin point accurate.


Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.







Do the right thing and there will be fish tomorrow.

I found the best value for money guns to be the Rob Allen Sparid. I have 2 and a Carbon Zulu.

Thanks for the feedback lads. By the looks of it there are alot of quality guns on the market and at the end of the day it all comes down to personal preference...On the other hand those aimrite guns sound pretty hot!!

Aimrite are nice have a 1.3 and removed the lame second trigger safety and loading butt and it made it so much better to use. have for around the reefs a 1.1 rob allen with a reel and value for money they are great weapons

i have used Rabitech, Freedivers, Rob Allan, Edge and aimrite but i lashed out and got my self a Riffe euro 120 and love it so much i sold all my other guns and got my self a Riffe euro 130 as well ( powered up with 3 16mm rubbers for bluewater work) it may just be me but i would take the riffe over any of the other guns i have used
