Coatesman Compound Roller Speargun Pool Tests

Pool Testing the new Compound Roller Gun
Here is a sneak peak at the new MAMBA Compound Roller Speargun. We tested a bunch of guns but this one way my favorite, it just plain blew me away with its performance.

1000 Custom painted (blue Water version) MAMBA Barrel
Rob Allen Vecta 2 grip with loading butt.
MAMBA Compound Roller Head
Harken pulley rollers
Powered by 3 sets of 16mm rubbers plus a 14mm kicker
7.5mm single flopper shaft

The gun shot through a 150mm hard foam target at 5m from the tip of the gun (6.4m from handle) and pulled a meter or so of line off the reel. This makes this gun not only unbelievable, but the future for compact Blue water spearguns.

I am off to Mozambique now to try them out on some real targets.


MAMBA Xfin Prototypes - The Deep Vader Carbon Spearfishing Fins

Latest Prototypes from MAMBA XFin - The Deep Vader Carbon Spearfishing Fin
Steve and I have been hard at work this last month or so working on some new carbon spearfishing fin designs and processes. We have totally redesigned the XFin and using some of the coolest tech around have a unique carbon blade that combines efficiency, strength and power into one crazy fin.
You might be asking what the V tail on the fin is all about. Well that is a secret :-) you will just have to try a pair and see.
