I'm 13 yrs old, 100 pounds and about 5 ft. tall do you think I should get a bigger or smaller gun and are the bands easy to pull back?
CHARLES B With a little practice, I think you can manage. Its all in the technique. You may want to put a second band on the gun as well. I found it a little weak with just the one band.
I would not recommend a smaller gun. This is an entry level gun IMO.
TREVOR M I'm 6'3" 220 pounds, I think it's easy. But it all depends on the leverage for you. But it's a good spear as long as you take care of it, and take it all apart after u get home from fishing and clean it.
WILLIAM B This speargun is very user freindly. Every feature is easy to use. Very simple yet effective. I do suggest you purchase the second band if you are going after larger size fish.
DAVE B I dont know about a bigger gun but the explorer could use a little more power. You need to to have spear within a foot of fish to stab through.
GEORGE N The band is very strong. I put the butt in my hip and crank it back. I wouldn't get a smaller gun. The bands will be smaller and leverage to load the band may be an issue. I did not put a second band on my gun. Enjoy.
ANDREW S I think you will be ok but maybe get a different set of bands then the stock ones - they are tough to pull back. I have 24's on them right now, but that's just what the store near me had at the time - some 22's would be perfect I think but maybe at your age/size start with bigger ones just to get used to the process.
PATRICIO M The bands are ok you just have to learn how to do it under water you will find it preatty easy about the size is a really good size
MIKE B I think you'll be able to handle it
