Questions about this item:
Does the smallest of the guns, the 40cm, come with a holster? Also is there a small model with the power reducer? thanks, Denis
JAMES N no holster with this model. Not sure if a power reducer model is offered.
It does not come with the holster. It was advertised with Leisurepro as a power reducer gun, but guess what....it's not. You'll have to get into a higher priced model for that. It's still a good entry level pneumatic gun. What part of the world and how big of game will you be hunting for?
Denis P I'm in San Diego. Mostly coastal bass and corbina freediving. I use a polespear, but was hoping to have this strapped to my leg as a backup. Do you sell aftermarket holsters for this?
JEFF T You'll have to check with Cressi, I'm just a customer.
How well did it work? Were you happy with it?
JOHN V Dude,
Don.t bother with this gun. Worst speargun I ever bought. Cannot hit a bard doorn at five paces. I usually buy the Mares 850 which is a terrific gun.
Made a serious mistake trying this Cressi gun out. Never again. Back to Mares for me.
HARRY D Works really well. I am very happy with it.
DAN D This gun works really well I have purchased four of these guns and still have the first one that I bought they last really well
What do you need to add to this gun before you start spearfishing? It looks like you need to add a shock line.
How long does the shock line need to be?
Is there any way to keep the spear shaft attached to the gun without it under power (for safety reasons getting in and out of water), or do you just need to keep the shaft out?
Can you get a five-prong head for this gun? If so, is it a 7mm thread?
PAUL M the first thing I do, as Im on my third one, is the following:
- replace the shaft with Flexible Stainless steel shaft that has the Hawaiian flopper - i like it best.
- I dont use a shock line with the rubber shock absorber on it as it always tangles! - use regular cord for spearguns and i wrap it 3 times on the gun. this is great to keep store it as i wrap it 3 times then use the loader cord to hold it all together.
- if you are spearfishing in the ocean i would not get the 5 prong tip. use the shaft with the hawaiian flopper
Cressi SL Star Spear Guns, By purchasing this ready to use or have to buy separate accessories?
IVAN P It is sold with enough accessories to start fishing. Upgrades are always possible.
STEVE N the gun is ready to use. ;Most serious divers that use pneumatics replace the shafts as none of the standard issue shafts are of the necessary stiffness and can bend while loading or in a large fish. It is a good gun for the price however it is not as sturdily built as many other that cost more
What is the thread size on these shafts?
LeisurePro S This is an 8mm diameter shaft with 7mm threading.
What is the diameter of the shaft?
LeisurePro S Diameter is 8mm.
Does the speargun float?
LeisurePro S The gun is slightly negative while charged. After the shaft is fired, the gun will float.
since this is pneumatic how times can you shoot in a single load?
LeisurePro S Gun comes pre pumped. Gun will need only 2-4 pumps yearly. Each gun size will come with manual on exact pumping instructions for size. Gun can be shot 200 plus times with out pressure loss
What is the main difference between the Cressi Sub Star and the Cressi Sub SL? Also, do both come with line?
LeisurePro S The SL comes with a reducer option meaning you can shoot the gun at half or at full power. The SL Star does not have this option. Yes, both come with line sliders.
Is These Guns Spring Action Or CO2?
LeisurePro S These guns operate by air pressure, not a spring.
Good for quick bass fishing in a lake?
LeisurePro S Yes, should be. Size 55 is a good all around gun.
how is this gun for shooting big stripped bass?
LeisurePro S The SL Star is a good, multi purpose gun. For bigger bass, I would go with the 55 or even 70 inch length.
can cressi-sub sl star spear gun be reloaded under water?
hey how far does this shoot thanks
LeisurePro S Each gun will shoot accurately the distance 3 times its length.
Exist any different in power between the Cressi-Sub SL Star 16",24",28"?
LeisurePro S Yes, the larger the gun the more power.
