MAKO Spearguns, YOU GOTTA READ THIS-

Can't say enough about this company after what they just did. UPS wasn't as ginger as they should have been and ended up banging my gun a bit to the point where it chipped a part from the trigger mech...

Dano, i believe the founder/owner of Mako, DROVE 3 HOURS from the MAKO virginia headquarteres to get me the required components to ensure I had them for my trip to the keys tomorrow, and put my NEW gun together... shot the shit for a bit, then left. Cool guy, knows about his product--- and will obviously exceed what you expect as far as service goes.

This whole series of events still has me in awe... never seen a firm/business etc... go this far out of the way to make one customer happy.


I give this company a 10 / 10.... Hands down.

Re: MAKO Spearguns, YOU GOTTA READ THIS-

I emailed them today with a question about custom building a small inshore gun. I had a reply in less than an hour and said he would do a custom no problem. Seems like a cool guy. A friend of mine at home knows the owner well and had good things to say about him and his product. Let us know how the gun performs when you get a chance. some feedback would be great.

Re: MAKO Spearguns, YOU GOTTA READ THIS-

Well guys, let us all know how well those guns shoot. I would think anyone who goes that far out of their way for a customer is obviously proud to stand behind their work. My suspicion is that these guns shoot well. So let us have performance reports after your trip(s) folks!

Re: MAKO Spearguns, YOU GOTTA READ THIS-

I met Dano at the miami DEMA show ,I got a wet suit from him, and send
him the pics with some nice fish, I can tell you, this guy is for real, and
his warranty will hold, his gear prices are awesome, and if he gets a chance
in the diving comunity, his new company will benefit us all.

Re: MAKO Spearguns, YOU GOTTA READ THIS-

Let me add my Kudos! Made my first order on 2-16 got it 2-18; there was a small glitch; Dano responded to my email with a phone call and corrected the glitch.

i'm very pleased with the QUALITY of the products and the price!
For me Quality comes first and price, while important, comes second. Customer Service of MAKO ROCKS!!!

You CANNOT go wrong with MAKO!!!

MAHALO AND KUDOS Dano!!

Re: MAKO Spearguns, YOU GOTTA READ THIS-

wow, that is awesome /\

I too spent a moment meeting the Mako guys and picking their brains and I was really impressed. All of their gear looked top notch (esp a really cool idea for a locking stringer) and more importantly, they were all really eager to talk and share their thoughts. I can see now that it was not just a case of them putting their best faces forward at the Expo...can't wait to add some Mako gear to the arsenal thanks for doing it right guys

Re: MAKO Spearguns, YOU GOTTA READ THIS-

I've directed a bunch of friends to them. Good prices, excellent service, and what looks to be a good product from what I saw a the BW expo. If I had known then what their prices were, I would have another gun now.

They will even ship to APO's (My friend is in the Coast Guard and lives in Colombia).
