    For your location/conditions, I would recommend a 52-60" gun, set up for freeshafting with optional lineshaft.

    I'd go with a Spearfishing Specialties commercial or a new Ocean Rhino or a Deathstick.

    I'm looking at an Ocean Rhino 52" right now. I think I'm going to buy that one and check it out.

    Thanks to all again
