If you like that gun, check out the Picasso Cobra and compare.....

Re: Meandros b32

These guns are great. I have the 130 which has 142cm band stretch. They are good value for money, coming with reel and line. I have 2 friends in my spearfishing club also with them and both also rate them very highly.

Re: Meandros b32

My mate uses the 115cm. They are powerful guns. What will you be using it for?

Looks exactly like the Picasso Magnum EVO series. If it is the same handle, I'd say it's as good as the rest of the Greek pipe guns. Meandros reels are said to be very good quality.

Hey Tim. Local mainly where the vis can be 5mts and the reef where the vis is 15mts. Maybe a bit big.

The 115cm is not a big gun but it's too much gun for 5m vis. In 15m vis hunting around the reef it would be great.

I'm pretty sure the barrels on the B32 are the same as Edge Super Frog guns. I'm not sure if that's the same as the Picasso above or not. They have a V track. The B32 for an Aluminum gun is very light in the water and really well balanced for an off the shelf gun. I can support my 130cm with 1 finger placed just in front of the reel and it balances at this point. This is with a 170cm 7.5mm spear in it. They come with 7mm Devoto Sub spears in them.

Meandros B32 115 aluminum or the Pathos Laser Open 110 aluminum or the Rob Allen 110 Snapper or Rob Allen 110 Tuna. We dive in Miami and the Florida Keys 30 ft or less.

Re: Meandros b32

Having shot the RA and Pathos, I now own the Meandros B32. It's a great gun IMHO.

The 115 Meandros is 140cm long from muzzle to butt in case you didn't know.

Re: Meandros b32

Looks like a well designed gun. Meandros is better know for their triggers, but I certainly would like to try one of these guns. IMHO by far the best designed euro pipe gun is the Sporasub America One ... but it maxes out at 105cm. This gun looks very similar to the Sporasub gun. With 2 x 14mm small ID bands and the correct shaft it should perform really well.

Re: Meandros b32

Tim G, how are you measuring band stretch? That number is very impressive for a 130 gun. When you get the time, do you mind stating the total length of that bad boy from butt to muzzle? As soon as spearq8 says it looks like a well designed gun, you know a whole bunch of spearos are going to start looking into them
