Complete gun review
I use this gun 4 / 5 Times a week so I really do a proper stress test on the gun. First I have to say that I like the gun however it has major problems as it comes from the factory: Good bits: Accurate, light and with a very sensitive trigger mechanism. All my guns are open muzzle, and the QRS is a good feature (not as it comes from the factory) Bad Bits: The rubber is way too long. The QRS is too tight. Without putting a 10 cm shorter rubber and loosen up the QRS the spear falls before reaching to end of line, no power at all, for a 6.5 mm shaft that should fly!!!. Many people don t like metallic bridles, I do, the one that comes with the gun is good, wide and comfortable but weak, however it broke after a month when I put a shorter and stronger rubber, the rubber went forward and I found myself with a piece of metal and plastic on my hand when loading. More serious, is the bungy, I cannot believe that they are selling this gun with such a weak bungy that will not hold any big fish, the bungy is very short, thin and doesn t have a dyneenma cord inside, you will need to change another one if you are shooting something bigger than sardines. The line releaser on the trigger is still ok, however it feels also very weak. So in conclusion, is a very nice gun, where you can see many good features, however, it really feels they haven t invested enough in the accessories of the gun
I second the opinion of RICO. I love this gun a prefer it to my 2other Omer Cayman(110) and custom made wooden greek gun(110). I have added a 19mm shorter rubber with custom wishbone and use the factory supplied rubbers with metal V as second rubber (on 2nd position). Bungee has been replaced with a Beuchat reel... Gun is very accurate/and powerful
Nice gun. I agree with Rico. The QRS is too tight, but you can loosen it. The butt end is attached to a joint which is horrible. Went fishing yesterday and the butt end just gave in while loading, now its broken and have to remove it. Im so disappointed. It ruined my trip.
What needed to have complete set?
What do I need in minimum beside the gun to go spearfishing? Has the shaft and cord be ordered separately? Thanks

Very good rifle
It is the second Beuchat Marlin Carbon I buy me. The first was in 85cm. It is a super accurate rifle with firepower and fast loading rifle to be an open head. I like gums equipped with two 16 mm with dynema and a slightly longer rod (150cm). I recommend the fusil.
