Questions about this item:
Does the commanche spear gun come with a spear shaft or is it just the gun. If it is just the gun what size tip do i get for a 60 cm gun? What is the best tip to get for shallow water hunting in hawaii? thanks ed
SCOTT G The Cressi Commanchee comes complete and ready for action. You will need to string your line. We always add a shock cord or bungee to the line. I will say for it's small stature the 60cm packs a very impressive punch. It is a bugger to load though, better be hitting the weight room often. My 75 and 90's are easier to load but I don't think they are anymore powerful. We use the 60 for river fishing and tight places. The Commanchee has a one piece shaft, meaning the tip is not replaceable. You can buy additional threaded shafts and experiment with different tips, the key is to keep the points sharp.
Steve S Yes. This gun will come with the gun, shaft and a tip. It is ready to go right out of the box.
how long is only the barre on the comanche 110? l mean how tall without handle and head. thanks
DMITRY G Cressy Comanche 110 has barrel length only 110mm (without handle and muzzle).
MATAN M the barrel itself, just the metal tube is 110cm long.
Hey where do you store/ route the line on the speargun?
JAKE B yes the line has a release just in front of the trigger where it id released
PAUL K Once the line is connected on the bottom front loop of the gun, it will run back through the little hook near the trigger then back around the front in a slot just underneath the spear and so on until the line is used up.
PETER R I have three illustrtaive photos I can send but figure out how to post or send them. I was challenged on this as well when initially stringing this gun.
Oregon Inlet, NC
Speargun size 90 cm, What is total length ? What is shaft length ?
Monica s The gun is 90cm which is about 35.5 inches. The shaft is 53.25 inches.
the sizes we have to choose, is it the size of the shaft/gun or is it the length of the stretched bands ? eg: is the 110cm a 110cm gun or a 165cm gun ?
GENNARO D size of the gun. for a 110cm gun u shot a 150cm shaft. bands dont mean anything. cut a band comfortable for u. not too loose or it wont penetrate...should be a hard to pull back but not difficult. if u fish dirty water like for black fish on a rock wall get a small gun. like a 60cm. if the water is clean with 10-20ft visiblilty...get the bigger gun like 110.
ERIC C The size is only the barrel length not the overall length of the gun and shaft. A 100cm gun is is just the barrel length, not the overall length of the gun and shaft.
IAN E The gun is listed by the length of the gun. Band stretch and spear shaft length may be listed in the details. I have never heard of a 165cm gun- That would probably kill a whale.
BURAK O Size of the gun. 110cm gun is a 110cm gun
On the 100cm speargun can you add a second sling?
MANUEL L Yes. but you need to change the original muzzle to open muzzle because the original muzzle is single band screw on only
Frank L Yes, but the second band is different from the primary, and we do not carry this item.
Can I use a Riffe shaft 7mm or less in the 110 Comanche?
Carlos N Dont know, i have a 75 mm
EUGENE T I am sorry but I refund the gun,so I have no idea...
HOW MANY TIPS COME WITH THIS SPEARGUN? WHERE CAN I BY MORE?
DAVID L Sorry I confused this with another gun I have. It is a fixed tip on the spear.
DAVID L 1 tip comes with the gun. You can order more right through leisure pro. they are usually $15-30 bucks each. The swivel tips are a bit more expensive but much better. The tips dull easily if you miss, but can be easily resharpened with a stone grinder.
CHRISTOPHER R This gun has a fixed tip. It cant be removed or replaced. It is a basically a solid shaft that is sharpened at the end.
BESS J One tip come with the gun. I do not know where you can get others. We returned the gun because it was too hard to load.
CHAD G I believe just one tip. Leisure Pro should be able to get more for you.
WILLIAM T It is a fixed tip (part of the shaft) so you would have to buy a whole new shaft.
CHRIS H The shaft has a permanent tip. You can order a new shaft if you damage it.
This cressi comanche 110 cm comes with a spear-tip provided?
MAX L Is very light, but is to big co care in travel bag, if like to buy something like that, look for one have a separation on center, so u can pack in travel bag. with out problem.
ANDREY N Yes,
It is not a whale killer, but it does its job very well and you get the fish from the spear fast.
BTW. I love my comanche. I shot about 80 snappers now with it since I bought it 3 months ago, and would take snooks many times easily, if it was legal.
If you buy it, the manual is a bit obscure about connecting the line. Surf the Web the answers, or just figure out how to connect the line (no "single wire" as in manual).
Spear-gun is it rigged, I meant the spear?
RODNEY T no string comes separate. you have to rig it yourself
How does line connect to Shaft?
ANDREY N there is a small hole on the end of the spear. Pull the line through it (I know it's not easy), tie the know few inches away so that the knot doesn't jam the release. Pull the other end thru the front "nose" of the gun, and attach the line to one of the mounts in the front
Tim M Thank ou for your help!!
Tim M Thanks very much !!
Hey how do you attach the line to the spear shaft on this model? Just got it brand new and the only way i can see is a hole on bottom of spear shaft but then how will that work when it has to go insided the gun or trigger mec.
PIKE A you cannot tie a knot it will catch on the end of the gun break the line and the shaft will keep going, DANGEROUS!!! it is supposed to be a copper grommit but you cant find them anywhere!, Don't risk using it it could injure or kill someone when the line breaks:(
This was my first speargun. I am still a beginner by I bagged a couple fish this summer here in the Northeast.
I wondered the same question. Attach the line to the end of the spear with a bowline knot. Use a big enough loop so that the knot of the bowline is outside the trigger mechanism. There is plenty of space around the shaft at the tip of the gun to allow everything to flow smoothly out.
Should work for you Tim.
Tim M Thanks for your Help Tom!!
MEHDI B yes, that is true...in other models that whole in the back of the spear shaft isn't that far away, but you have to force it in...plus when you wet it and use it a bit it will get thinner and slide better in there. Otherwise most people do not use the line that comes with the comanche but make their own setting with some thinner crimped heavy test line...
CHRISTOPHER R I used a basic no slip loop knot. The knot is about 2 inches from the hole.
PETER S Just tie with a bowline knot. This way you can keep the actual knot away from the shaft with at least 2 inches. When pressing spear into trigger mech, just make sure line is tight going forward. Once spear is set in trigger mech This way line does not clash with trigger mech), you do not need to worry about line pointing forward anymore.
BURAK O Use the bowline knot where the knot is away from the whole so it does not get in to the mechanism. There are many examples on youtube. Also use a bungee on the other end of the line. good luck
Tim M Model is a Cressi-sub Comamche 1m
What is the range of the 110cm?
Tom A I say like a good 15 feet or maybe more.
Brett H Though every gun and every shot is different you would see the maximum range of the gun being about 15 ft, and anything closer than that would be better.
what is the range?
MANUEL L on a Cressi Comanche 100 cm. range will be 10 ft.
you will be able to penetrate a fish that is 2 inches thick
from 10 ft away. with the factory shaft!
JUNI P I was able to shoot few sea bass in 3 yards range, just OK feeling. I would say the most is 5 yards.
PETER S approx 6 ft effective range, 10 ft total range.
YAIR C Around 10 to 13 feet original shafts and rubber bands
PHILIP G It's about 8-10 ft comfortably from tip of gun, but on the furthest notch, you could pull off a 15 ft shot if you aimed perfectly.
ANA S mine is 90 cm cressi comanche, i have been shooting fishes from 10 to 20 feet and it is very powerfull speargun. think may be the light shaft helps a lot... becouse the gun only has one sling
how long is the 60cm?
YAIR C The small one its 60 cm
how many slings can it hold ?
Brett H It comes setup with a single sling, It looks like you could add a second circular sling but the mfg does not recommend doing this.
