Comanche is the 2004 world champion spear gun, and is the result of continuous fine-tuning and the search for perfection. Special, anti-corrosion aluminum tubes eliminate any bending of the barrel, even on the long models. Extremely modern, new generation thermoplastics guarantee very light and non-deformable point and handgrip, for incredible firing precision.
The highly compact, hydrodynamic point makes it possible to lower the positioning of the bands, in order to optimize the forward thrust and guarantee perfect visibility and rapid and precise aiming at the same time. Very gentle shaft release system, ring for the line, sternal support for reloading, dovetail triggering for the reel, the possibility of choosing from a number of different model bands, are just some of its fantastic features.
The Comanche series spear gun barrels are made of the highest quality anodized aluminum. All barrels are sealed, minimizing in-water weight, allowing for easy firing. Shafts are aligned and centered in the muzzle and hand grip, offering exceptional accuracy. Side rail supports are incorporated in the barrels to position the shaft movement during firing. Available as an accessory is the spear fishing reel. The reel can easily be added to the bottom of the handgrip. Comanche is the perfect spear gun for serious fisherman.
The Comanche spear gun is based on the long experience acquired by Cressi with the Apache series. New generation thermoplastics have been used for the handgrip and muzzle; these materials are light and at the same time very stiff, with large mechanical resistance. This makes the materials less flexible for more precise firing.
It has a very compact, streamlined and hydrodynamic muzzle. The bands are positioned lower down so the shaft is now perfectly aligned with the bands. The muzzle provides excellent visibility for precise and rapid aiming.
There are also new rail supports for the line on both sides of the point and a new smaller spear-rail connected to the muzzle for the line to pass through, so the shaft is released without jerking. There is a support for a second band on the bottom part. A longer spear-rail saddle on the front of the handgrip guarantees very precise firing precision at the moment of release.
There are some 4 line releasing devices: two on the side, with new catches to hold the line properly but at the same time to release it easily when firing. There is also a mechanical line releasing device that is freed when the shaft is fired and a fourth one on the front, under the barrel.
The back of the handle ends with a handy sternal support, for easier loading. The butt is made from soft rubbersoft material, for a safe and comfortable grip. A heavy duty ring attachment for the main line comes out of the bottom part of the butt. A lot of attention has gone into the design of the streamlined, high capacity reel (up to 70 m of Dacron).
It comes with a premium recoil snap and excellent friction, really progressive and effective. It has a dovetail clutch line system for hooking onto the gun, situated so that all the line releasing devices can always be used, including the mechanical one activated by the trigger (Cressi exclusive).
The Comanche barrel is made from special, very stiff anti-corrosion tubes to ensure excellent firing precision. The standard bands are black, highly reactive and quick, with a diameter of 16 mm and articulated wishbone. They can be substituted with the more powerful 18 mm diameter, S45 bands, or, particularly in the longer models, with the 20 mm diameter, G20 bands.
The Comanche spearguns come in the following lengths: 60 cm, 75 cm, 90 cm, 100 cm, 110 cm The shafts are available in 6 mm stainless steel, 6.5 mm stainless steel, 6.5 mm burnished (only for Comanche 60, 75 and 90), 7 mm threaded (for Comanche 60, 75, 90, 100).
