Agree 100%. It isn't until you play around with a few multiband guns in the water and on dry land that you realise this.
I used to own a big American cannon (thick 9.5mm shaft...4 bands.. double wrap... the lot) and no matter how you load the bands, they would not lay nice and flat... very noticeable muzzle flip. I sold it for less than half what I paid.
These new European rear handled tuna guns make me drool. I'm gonna keep saving my pennies until my next trip up north

This is a great thread! Would love to hear more from the guys who kill it with these high end guns
