For instance, if I asked you this question, what would your answer be off the top of your head:

Who could shoot and reload faster?

1 - A well trained man with a semi-auto pistol using a magazine

2 - A well trained man with a revolver and a speed-loader

If your talking 99% of the people that shoot...it would be the semi-auto...HANDS DOWN!
But you found an exception..
I have to wonder tho...
As fast as he might be...
....how much faster he'd be with a semi auto!!!

Re: New Ocean Rhino/Biller Free/Line Shaft

Top loader Biller.A semi closed or open muzzle is needed when shooting paralyzers fast.No magnets in the track on this one,but I may put one in my new gun.
I wrap a single wrap around my handle using #300 mono with an open tuna clip on the shaft end dangling from the other end.Keep at least 1 shaft with a slide ring for pelagics and deep holes.Converts in a few seconds. I'm not particularly a fast reloader in my circle of friends so everything has to be operating smooth for me to keep up.

Re: New Ocean Rhino/Biller Free/Line Shaft

I guess i'm always having fun...since i don't usually miss.

Important rules of spearfishing:
1. Aim
2. Shoot
3. Stone
4. Repeat
5. Don't suck
6. Don't F it up

While most of us don't shoot commercially, there is another thing to consider that can impact fun... Losing that fish, maybe a personal best fish, because it took too long to get a second shaft in it, or you lost sight of where it went while looking back at the handle to see if you're lined up to lock the shaft in.

That for me is where you can get slowed down. Pulling the shaft back toward you sometimes results in the shaft not being seated in the track because you're working from the front of the gun. Anyone who says they haven't done this is lying. The correct technique is to guide the shaft with your free hand, sometimes that doesn't happen perfectly, especially when you're excited.

Backloading allows you to insert the tip into the closed muzzle and drop the shaft in the track. You don't need to take your eye off the target. It can be done simply by feel. You have better leverage on the shaft.

This is just my opinion and for some it's worth exactly what they paid for it, for others, they might like that option.

At the end of the day, the stringer does the talking.

I don’t like to brag too much but, I can miss 3 fish in 3 seconds with a pole spear.
