Powerfull and reliable. Incredible gun.

By George k.

Incredible speargun. This is my second one and I don't need any other. It look like a small toy but with a great power, accurate and good range. Very easy to handle and operate. I've hunted good sizes pieces. All my friends envy me.

 

One shot one kill

By mudpuppy

I have not used the Mares mini yet but I have used a larger Mares. I love it. I believe these guns capable of penatrating through larger species than Bass and Walleye but a different system of attaching the spear might be in order. I use the trident coils and they work great for my needs. I have never shot a speargun prior to my purchase of these two Mares. The first four shots were bullseyes. I was impressed.

Spear gun

By mgersch

Very nice gun. Good purchase! Great price!

 

Excellent small gun with BIG Power!!

By Blaise_78

I use this gun in inland fresh water. The small size helps me get into tight spaces, while still knowing I've got the knock-down power. I bagged a 18 Lb Catfish with this gun right out the box!!

 

just like my benelle, boom,boom,boom

By crazyaks60

i shoot all my game fish up to that 20lb class in 1/2 power mode. big bass,walleye,northern pike,this gun gets the job done!

 

Terminator

By BIJAN R.

I added a laser on the top and a UK 1.5 watt light on the side of the barrel. It is now a lethal tool with better than 90% hit. The shaft and the tip are cheap, so I need to replace them with better kinds. After about 15 shots, I need to add about 30-40 pumps. I wished I could find the pressure gauge for this gun, so I pump it accordingly. Very good for 18-24 (in) fish, but larger ones can break free.

GREAT SPEARGUN 5 STARS

By VIERA

I KNOW IS A GREAT SPEARGUN I USED TO OWN ONE MY SELF IN CUBA I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO USE MINE HERE IN MIAMI BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER BUT I KNOW WHEN I USE MY NEW ONE I'M GOING TO BE BACK IN BUSINESS I RECOMEND IT TO EVERYBODY BETTER THAN CRESSI SUB.

Reliable Accurate!!

By kelly

This is a good all around gun. I have a 70cm and hit all types and size fish. The gun is maintenance free and I pumped only once after 2 years of use, it only took 3 pumps after all that time. I love the fact it’s easy to load and has minimal recoil. The shaft fly’s fast and accurate. Yes a band gun is quieter but this blows it away in power. By the time your prey hears it usually it to late. It works for me and is my primary gun. Happy hunting and good eats.

 

Decent Gun

By cojack2006

This is a nice speargun for the money. It is easy to load on low power setting and is quite accurate. The monofilament shooting line that comes with it is a bit short, however. Plus, you need to make sure to double check the factory installed crimps/ferrules on the supplied shooting line. I learned the hard way by missing a shot on high power setting and the shaft reach the end of the shooting line and simply stripped the mono out of the ferrule...bye bye spear. I use this in lakes in Arkansas, so once you drop something, it is gone. But the 58 has decent power, even in low setting. I can put a shaft straight through the head of a 4 lbs smallmouth bass at 6-8 feet range on low power...not bad. The storage for the loader in the handle is lacking. The tabs that hold the loader in fatigue and break off after just a few dive trips. I ended up getting a bracelet to hold my loader. Overall, great gun. I would recommend this to my friends.

 

Mares Sten performs like a champ

By Lisa S.

I use this speargun in the Lost Coast Region of NorCal. The water is cold and can be rough. There are a lot of cave/rock outcroppings in the areas that I frequent. This gun is a little longer than my Omer, but still gets in the tight spots where I like to hunt. I replaced the stock lanyard on it with a coiled JBL type because it does not behave well in cold water. I am hoping it lasts as long as my Omer did (10 years). If you put the full amount of air in it when new, it is rather difficult to load at the surface for free diving but loads quickly and easily at 40 ft.The only reason it doesn't get a 5 star rating is because I had to get rid of the sub optimal lanyard.

 

Mares Sten MiniMini

By Flipper

I have used this wee gun about 4 times now, I was quite impressed with its power for its size. On the first trial run I bent the stainless steel spear (which I had bought as an extra) while trying to load it, I must have accidentally moved the safety onto the "on" position, and for this reason the spear just bend when I pushed down on in. Like other reviews have mentioned, the instruction manual that comes with the gun are not very clear but with a little patience you can figure it out. The other thing which lets this gun down is the holster, it does not stay in place. I have resorted to ditching the holster and keeping the gun in my catch bag. The size of the gun makes it really handy, you can have it in your catch bag and hardly notice it. Good for when gathering shell fish and see a yummy fish lingering around.
