Rating: JBL Travel Magnum Combo Speargun
Reviewer: Ethan Bond,
This is a GREAT value gun.
Light, accurate and versatile. for a traveling spearo, ths is definately worth considering.
In 24" cut down mode it does lack power, and so be careful you dont hit the gill plate or you might watch your fish swim away. Fortunately in full size mode it is light enough for quick target aquisition and has plenty of stopping power in the 40 lb range - havent tried it on anything bigger yet.
The only real criticism is that you need to make sure you keep checking the spear tip and spear sections as I found that they came lose more often than other spears I have used. Take spares!
