About Omer Airbalete Camu 3D Speargun W/Reel

A revolutionary pneumatic speargun that combines the best traits of power in air guns to the maneuverability and aim advantages of band guns

BARREL/PISTON CHAMBER
The barrel of the gun is produced using Hydroforming technology which allowed us to manipulate the shape to achieve the best maneuverability for an air gun. The internal piston barrel diameter is 11mm which consents easier loading at higher pressure compared to most standard 13mm air guns. In addition thinner faster shaft diameters between 6-7mm are employed

HANDLE
An innovative handle design resembles those of modern band guns. As with band guns, the handle alignment positions the hand directly in line with the spear shaft contained in the inner chamber, opposed to below the barrel as with all the current pneumatic speargun models. This realization allows a more natural aim and better absorption of recoil similar to the characteristics of modern band guns. The handle can be easily removed thanks to a generous sized stainless steel locking pin that fixes it to the rest of the gun. Once removed there is access to the dump valve of the gun which is otherwise sealed dry during regular use.

MECHANISM
The trigger mechanism is designed to offer a sensitive trigger independent of the amount of air pressure preloaded in the barrel. It therefore remains neutral and unaffected offering unaltered trigger sensitivity regardless of the power. This was the result of a push rod lever design that exponentially reduces the load between the trigger and the trigger mechanism. The tooth used to engage the shaft, known as the trigger sear, is produced with a special stainless steel that has a very high resistance to wear and tear and is treated with a special coating that reduces friction. Another innovation in the field of air-guns is the side pivoting line release that keeps the shooting line tucked to the side of the gun

MUZZLE
The new muzzle integrates a power reducer which can be easily employed while fishing. The side water ports in the front of the gun (larger than standard ports to increase the water escape from the piston chamber) can be shut by simply turning the muzzle cover. By doing this the speed of the shaft is reduced by 15%.

PISTON
The piston is furnished with two O-rings produced with a unique material that reduces friction against the piston chamber during the stroke. Just thanks to the employment of these O-rings a 15% increase in shaft velocity is achieved as well as easier loading effort.

SLIDE RING(Microspeed)
The slide-ring is a fundamental particular in the hydrodynamics of the shot along with the penetration properties of the spear-shaft. The new Microspeed metal slide ring is fruit of long studies geared toward reducing hydrodynamic friction as well as maintaining the highest shot precision. Created with a method known as Microfusion or lost wax technique in 304 stainless its reduced dimension and two wings are used for slotting the shooting line at a 30 degree entry. This innovative solution avoids the concern of having to keep the correct shooting line angle while fighting a fish because it places the entire load on the slide ring itself rather than the holes of the slide ring. This prevents any stress to the shooting line. Also thanks to the shape of the slide ring, the stop washer as well as the spring typically employed in pneumatic speargun shafts, have been replaced reducing the profile considerably.

      Comments about Omer Airbalete Camu 3D Speargun W/Reel:

      The airbalete is an improvement over my Mares Cyrano. It costs much more but all told it's a better gun. The gun is unique because you take the handle off completely to pump air back into it. This eliminates the possibility of the gun (all pneumatics eventually do) leaking air through the handle and trigger 0-rings. The review above is right, the first generation slide ring did stick and I called Omer and they replaced it with a new one that doesn't stick to the tail of the shaft. The gun has more range than my Mares Cyrano and has virtually no recoil. If you hunt in murky visibility like I do this is a great gun because it has more than twice the range and power of a comparable size band gun.

      Comments about Omer Airbalete Camu 3D Speargun W/Reel:

      RIGHT NOW IM SHOPPING FOR A GUN TO REPLACE THE 110 AIR BALETE THAT IM ABOUT TO SCRAP.THE GUN WORKED GREAT FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS. I MEAN REALLY ACCURATE AND POWERFUL. I THINK IT WOULD PUNCH A HOLE THROUGH A BRICK WALL. I DIDNT ABUSE THE GUN THOUGH.NO SAND CLEANED IT EVERY TIME. I USED IT ABOUT ONCE A WEEK ( THREE HOURS AT A TIME) FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS. THEN PROBLEMS AROSE. FIRST THE THE SLIDER RING STARTED GETTING STUCK UNTO THE END OF THE SPEAR.I TRIED BUYING A NEW TIP AND SLIDER ( AFTER ATTEMPTING TO FIX A FEW TIMES)BUT THE SAME PROBLEM CAME BACK, EVEN RUINING THE THREADS ON THE TIP OF THE SPEAR. HAD TO BUY A NEW SPEAR AND DIFFERENT DESIGNED SLIDER ASSEMBLY. GUN WORKED WELL FOR A COUPLE MORE MONTHS. THEN ONE MORNING BEFORE HEADING OUT, I FOUND THAT ALL THE PRESSURE HAD DISCHARED OUT OF THE BARREL. 2 HOURS AND 1300 PUMPS LATER I WAS TESTING THE GUN IN THE WATER. THREE TRIPS LATER SAME PROBLEM. DOES IT NEED A KIT, PISTON, INNER BARREL ? I DONT KNOW BUT IM DONE DUMPING TIME AND MONEY. TIME FOR A BAND GUN, WILL STICK TO OMER THOUGH.

      Questions about this item:

      Kevin L  How far does the speargun shoot effectively and hit fish?
      BRETT R  Hey Kevin, the farthest I have shot a fish with this gun is aprox. 4.5- 5.5 meters. Most fish I have shot are on reefs or rocks, so 3 to 4 meters is the norm. Great gun for air/spring powered. Very stealthy, easy to point and shoot. Reel needs to be fine tuned for your shooting style, and against backlash. All works great together. If you want a sleek,stealthy,fast,deadly gun, then this is for you. Now bare in mind that this is NOT a blue water gun for yellow fin, or triple digit Wahoo. But it will damn sure shoot a 30 lb Grouper coming out from under a rock! Great Gun! I give it 4.5 out of 5. Been diving in Fl. since the late 60's.
