The Comanche spear gun is based on the long experience acquired by Cressi with the Apache series.
New generation thermoplastics have been used for the handgrip and muzzle; these materials are light and at the same time very stiff, with large mechanical resistance. This makes the materials less flexible for more precise firing.
It has a very compact, streamlined and hydrodynamic muzzle. The bands are positioned lower down so the shaft is now perfectly aligned with the bands. The muzzle provides excellent visibility for precise and rapid aiming.
There are also new rail supports for the line on both sides of the point and a new smaller spear-rail connected to the muzzle for the line to pass through, so the shaft is released without jerking. There is a support for a second band on the bottom part.
A longer spear-rail saddle on the front of the handgrip guarantees very precise firing precision at the moment of release.
There are some 4 line releasing devices: two on the side, with new catches to hold the line properly but at the same time to release it easily when firing. There is also a mechanical line releasing device that is freed when the shaft is fired and a fourth one on the front, under the barrel.
The back of the handle ends with a handy sternal support, for easier loading.
The butt is made from soft rubbersoft material, for a safe and comfortable grip. A heavy duty ring attachment for the main line comes out of the bottom part of the butt.
A lot of attention has gone into the design of the streamlined, high capacity reel (up to 70 m of dacron). It comes with a premium recoil snap and excellent friction, really progressive and effective.
It has a dovetail clutch line system for hooking onto the gun, situated so that all the line releasing devices can always be used, including the mechanical one activated by the trigger (Cressi exclusive).
The Comanche barrel is made from special, very stiff anti-corrosion tubes to ensure excellent firing precision.
The standard bands are black, highly reactive and quick, with a diameter of 16 mm and articulated wishbone.
They can be substituted with the more powerful 18 mm diameter, S45 bands, or, particularly in the longer models, with the 20 mm diameter, G20 bands.
