pneumatic speargun. which one? 1500 gun for sale

i've just started at spearing and i had a crack at using a rob allen sparid 1.2 and well i find it very hard to load as i have short arms (bloody arms) so i was thinking of a pneu. any recommendations on what gun would be best?

also i have a andrea gold 1500 that the old man bought me and well i will never get around to using it. it cost $1100 but i will take $750 for it. its a blue water gun. 3 rubbers, range of 10m

I suggest you harden the fark up,

 And wash your mouth out with soap.


hardly any pneumatic guns will rival a lacky gun mate. You've admitted you've only just started spearing, so my advice to you is to go get a slightly shorter rail gun, and work more on your technique.

Don't bother getting a new gun, just lengthen the bridle a smidge. You can read what to do in this thread. Then go watch a bunch of videos on youtube on how to improve your loading technique.

Does it have two 16mm rubbers or a single 18mm one?

I'll give you $50 for the Andre ;)

well you guys have talked me around. i'll try my luck with a 1.2m rob allen sparid or something similar. amazingly the technique that i was using was very similar to those demo'd on youtube, but it must just come down to experience and familiarity. thanks for the help guys

Also the way on which you hold your hands when pulling down on the rubber..... Make sure your hands are palms DOWN...  Does make a huge difference..

As for the 1500 not sure what I will do with it for now. I'm sure with a bit more experience under my belt it will come in handy but for now it's back to gathering dust

I have had a couple mate don't bother with them when your on a trip and they do a seal they are buggered and then try and get them fixed it is near on impossible I used to make my own guns but these days you can get a Rob Allen rail gun of the shelf and you are ready to go
make up your own rubbers and bridles to suit how you load your gun its just practice when it comes to loading don't do what my mate did loaded his new gun at home and accidently discharged it through his ceiling and roof hahahah
