I love this gun. I use it in Wisconsin for carp and have been getting them up to about 20+ lb with no problems. The spear head that comes with the gun is well...cheap. I would get a new one as soon as you can from Leisurepro. But keep in mind you will need to get an adaptor for the shaft to fit a JBL head. The only problem that I have with this gun is that it is VERY hard to load under water. With that exception it works great.Go to this youtube video address to see this gun in action on a carp that I shot. Note: This is not an add for anything but simply a video showing this speargun in action. It will make you want to get one. [@]Get this gun and go harvest some large fish.Happy shooting.

The gun comes with a very low pnuematic load... so you will have to pump it up several times to get a good blast. However, once the gun is properly pumped to your needs it is accurate and deadly. Don't purchase this gun with out also buying a stainless spring steel shaft. The shaft that comes with the gun is low grade metal (cadmium?) and will break... fast. I shot my first fish with the gun and strung the fish. The shaft head went into a lobster pot and when I wrestled with it the tip broke off. I then purchased a spring steel hawaiian flopper shaft. Since then I've shot it into rocks, pilings and all sorts of structure behind the fish. It has been an awesome gun since. I recommend the gun but it is a must to buy a spring steel shaft to make it complete. One another note... I was spearfishing in December with the gun and for some reason the trigger kept sticking. My friends were all using pneumatics (different brands) that day and we all encountered the same problem of the sticking triggers. We surmised that pneumatics don't like extreme cold water. However, this gun killed dozens of fish over the summer and fall here in New England.

Comments about Cressi SL Star Spear Guns:

I use this gun for small rockcod 12-18inches and for regulation size lings all at 1-4 foot shooting range. The factory pressure is too much for my usage so I pump the gun up 30-35 after draining it to zero. I'm not a strong person so this gun works fine for my arm strength. Later you may want to change out the spear shaft to stainless if the cadium plating wears off from banging around the reef. Also used a 7mm female to 6mm male adapter to fit my 6mm paralzer spear head on the stock 8mm shaft. To me, this is a good deal and best performance for the price if you do not abuse the gun i.e. shooting the gun off in the air instead of underwater. And don't overpump the pressure, I use 30-35 pumps, the manual says 100 but at 100 I couldn't push the shaft in to load! If you need to use it at 100 pumps, I suggest you buy a different gun.

    This gun has a heavy duty shaft and is durable. The only problem there is no slot to store the shaft in when the gun is not being used like the MARES.

      Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
      HARRY D  Great price, great gun. Powerful, easy to shoot.
      Nathan Z  Can you fire the cressi sub on land?
      JOHN V  No it will stretch the spring and shorten its life.
      Shopper  Is the Cressi-sub with the power reducer easier to load than the one without?
      PAUL S  With the power reducer on, loading feels easier for the first 70%-80% of the range of insertion of the spear in the gun boar, then it feels about as hard toward the end. In other words, the force that needs to be applied varies non-linearly with the distance traveled by the spear in the boar. Hope this helps, -Paul
