What exactly was wrong with your friends gun?
Mmmm.... crap. I just remember. My friend bought two guns at the same time: Seateck Gecko AND Bucanero R. Both used in the secondary market.

The Gecko was perfect, very little use. I got to work on it because my friend is not so proficient rigging guns.

The Bucanero R (round tube, that is) is the one that had the line release in non-working order and my friend tried to "fix it". As you can imagine, at the end it was FUBARED. So I built him a line release just like the one in the Gecko. I used some stainless sheetmetal, cut, shape, polish, drill, massage to fit and install... voila! Instant line release.

i like the Gecko but with the bulbous design is not what I would call manuverable. Is better suited for stalking. We fish mostly in the Cantabric sea (shore diving mostly). No BWH arround here. Most of the fish are well below 3kg.
