De Los Pistoleros – Petar Pan Inverted Roller

Spearguns have slowly advanced in technology. Starting from wood sticks with surgical rubber attached to one end and a sharpened rod of metal and ending up today with pieces of artwork made from carbon fiber and multiple laminates of exotic wood. But, when it comes to speargun technology, you really can’t get more innovative and current than the inverted roller gun.  Six 20mm bands connected through pulls under the belly of the beast leading to a fully tuned and hardened 8.5mm plus shaft.  The theory behind the inverted roller is simple. Get the most band stretch possible out of...
