If you happen to enjoy fishing but are getting slightly tired of testing your patience then its time for taking a different, more active approach to the sport. One of those more active ones is spearfishing and if you think that you’ll have to, once again, stand patiently over a body of water while waiting for the right time to thrust a spear at a fish you are mistaken. Modern spearfishing utilizes spearguns, an underwater fishing implement. To kick off your new hobby you will need the right tools for the job and we have just the one for you, the Cressi Comanche Speargun.
This superb speargun is made by Cressi, a company with a long-lasting tradition and presence in manufacturing various diving equipment. Out of twelve models in their speargun series the Comanche speargun is the 2004 world champion speargun and is the result of constant improvements and fine-tuning. First of all, you should know that this model is available in five sizes: 60 cm, 75 cm, 90 cm, 100 cm and 110 cm. The shafts of the speargun are available in 6 mm stainless steel, 6.5 mm stainless steel, 6.5 mm burnished (exclusive for Comanche 60 cm, 75 cm and 90 cm), 7 mm threaded (exclusive Comanche 60 cm, 75 cm, 90 cm, 100 cm). Regardless of the length of the model you choose, you can rest assured that the anti-corrosion aluminum tubes will eliminate any form of damage and/or bending of the barrel of the speargun.
What assists in making the accuracy above average is the modern, next generation thermoplastics out of which the light, non-deformable point and handgrip are made from. In order to optimize the forward thrust of the speargun and increase visibility, you have the option of lowering the position of the bands which launch shaft. This is made possible by the aforementioned light, hydrodynamic point. With this lowering of the bands you can also increase the speed and precision of your aiming. This speargun also has a very gentle shaft releasing system, a dovetail triggering system and a sternal support which will provide you a smooth spearfishing experience. Apart from the standard, black bands which are 16 mm in diameter, you can also use more powerful ones such as the 18 mm bands or 20 mm bands which are particularly good for longer models on the Comanche.
To kick off the coming of spring and more pleasant weather conditions for outdoor activities, get yourself a Cressi Comanche Speargun and experience spearfishing on a whole different level. [via]
