Kimberly S.
Welcome to LeisurePro. I'm here to be your personal equipment consultant. Let's get started picking out the perfect gear for you!
Hi. My name is Kim
How can I help you?
Hi Kim, I live in Hawaii and my husband is a beginner diver..
cool!
Congrats!
I'm looking for a speargun that would best suit him
how big are the fish that you think he'll catch?
5-12 lbs?
yes, he's starting off with in-shore diving
cool
Do you have a price range for this purchase?
Well since it'll be his first gun I don't want to spend alot so I'm thinking 150 at the most
ok...no problem
do you want a sling or pneumatic gun?
sling
awesome
can you give me just a few moment to go look for something that I think will suit him best?
Sure no problem. I don't know if it matters, but he's 5'11"
great bit of advice. thanks!
Cressi Comanche Speargun 100cm
OK...here is the Cressi Comanche
it is a very popular speargun
single sling
I suggest getting the 100 cm size as it will allow him to transition into shooting larger fish as he progresses
He's very big on the shooting range.. what is the range?
oh...just a moment please
It will be about 3-5 feet
to increase the distance, he'll have to get a double sling capable gun
Ideally, a reach of 6'-9' feet is preferred
ok.....let me see if I can find a gun that can do that....that's pretty far.
JBL Explorer 24 Double Sling Speargun (4D24)
this has a range of 8-10 feet :-)
I agree it's pretty far, but the divers here in hawaii encouraged him to find a gun with that range..I have no idea why :-)
cool. they would know best! After reading the reviews on this, one of the people mentioned it'd be best to get the gun butt
to help with ease of reloading
I have pulled up that item for you

Are you planning to purchase this today?
If so, I can look up shipping costs for you and also ensure your order goes through properly
