    • MAKO Spearguns
      I am somewhat hesitant to make a post in response to questions about a model of gun we don't sell and which I am not intimately familiar with. So my comments will be somewhat general.

      You indicate you are going to use the gun for scuba and have not spearfished before.

      In this type of situation, you will benefit from simplicity. That means remove the reel. Add an elastic muzzle bungi which includes an integrated snap swivel. Eliminate the double wrap of line - you should be fine with one. An extra wrap of line is almost always not beneficial for scuba hunting near wrecks or reefs.

      Add monofilament line (one wrap) for the shooting line. Monofilament is stiffer and much easier to handle underwater and will therefore not tangle up nearly as much underwater.

      Also I THINK the way you have the line wrapped is incorrect. The fixed plastic tab forward of the line release is intended to deflect the wrap of line and hold it DOWN away from the bands. It looks to me like you routed the line around that tab.

      If you are interested in making any of those adjustments, we have everything you might want on our website.
