Rating: REVIEW
Reviewer: Jason J.
this is a good gun it came with black bands when in the picture they were yellow but it seems to function and work well, except for the spear tip its very difficult to get it tight onto the gun because of the swivel tip, i had mine actually fall of and after 45 minutes of swimming at the bottom of the lake found it but other then the spear tip its a good gun

This is my first gun, and I bought one for my son also. It has a nice feel to it under water and Im surprised at the power. Ive never used more than one band (yet), but havent had shots at any huge fish yet. Weve bagged a few flounder and sea bass so far. Id recomend this to anyone.

Rating: Great Gun for a great price. Recomend on all levels
Reviewer: Nicholas Dean  -  View all my reviews
This is a sweet gun for a sweet price! I bought the gun for fishing in primarily coral and reef areas in Hawaii. The smaller size of the gun makes it extremely mobile. Not only is its mobility great for quick navigation amungst thick coral, but also if you do much traveling it makes it much easier to pack. I have used it about 4 or 5 times now, and havnt even needed to put the 3rd band on it for added power. I was really impressed with its power as well as how easy it was to load. For those who are worried about how hard it is to load, almost every gun on the market is going to take some muscle. Ive used guns that are much harder to loard than this one. All around I would recomend this gun. You cant beet the quality of JBL, the customer service of Scuba.com, and the price that you pay for this gun.

Reviewer: Ronald Bublitz  -  View all my reviews
The gun is everything I expected it to be . It is perfect for small to medium sized fish. Since I bought the gun for my first spearfishing trip , I really didnt know what to expect but I learned that this gun has good penetration within the twelve foot range. I captured everything I shot with it. A great buy!

Rating: Puttin food on the table.
Reviewer: Brian Olson Instructor
I LOVE THIS GUN! Ill start with its versatility. Three bands means that the diver can adjust hitting power - fewer bands for small fish up close and near rocks, Three bands for quick hard-hitting penetration on larger fish or at greater distances. The relatively short overall length means that you can switch direction and maneuver quickly for the kill-shot. The changeable tip can be switched to accommodate different quarry and conditions. The open muzzle allows for rapid reloading so you get more shots in a shorter period of time. This all ads up to more fish on the grill. For all-around performance and successful hunting, this is the one to lay your bets on.

I purchased this model w/3 bands specifically for the Ling and Cabezon in our area. It appears to be well made, and I am itching to pull the trigger on our next trip.
