Mares Sten Mini Rigged Speargun..
Rating: Mares-Sten-Mini-Rigged-Speargun.. Best Speargun Ever Created! 12/04/2010

The Mares Mini Speargun is one of the easiest, most powerful spearguns I have ever used. It is lightweight enough to be held in one hand for extensive diving, and small enough to shoot a spear into a rocky hideout, yet powerful enough to hit a fish from 10 feet and knock it down. I shot a 29 pound lingcod with this speargun, and it brought the fish down with a well-placed shot. The way the speargun is set up directly from Scuba.com is also nice. Took me about 30 minutes to set it up, and I used it the next day! Perfect! The reloader is a bit hard to use underwater, and it seems to me that there should be a better holster or keeper for it than just in the handle, where it can be lost when brushed against a rock or kelp. But overall, a great product.

Mares Sten Mini Rigged Speargun..
Rating: Mares-Sten-Mini-Rigged-Speargun.. WOW! 08/06/2007

I thought when I bought this that a 1 piece would be difficult to get in and out of...but this thing makes suiting up a breeze! All my diving buddies are jealous of me already! Not only that, but wearing a size 2X most of the time, I could have gone to a 1X because of the stretchability of the material. Great stuff!

Mares Sten Mini Rigged Speargun..
Rating: Mares-Sten-Mini-Rigged-Speargun.. Another Great Product! 08/06/2007

Not only does this thing come with extra pouches for added weight...and the pouches are secure enough to make it so you dont give them a second thought, but it is also lightweight out of the water, easy and mobile, and feels great under the water as well.
