Riffe Euro or Standard for a beginner?

Hey guy, i'm new to spearfishing and was wondering about the kind of gun i should get. I've been looking into the Riffe euro and the standard and was wondering what you opinions on the guns are. I live in Florida so I would mostly be doing saltwater fishing, but also my family goes up to Michigan and I was thinking that when I got a gun I could bring it up there and go spearfishing in Lake Michigan. I'm also open to suggestions on different brands.

Omer cayman is a good starter gun. But if you got the money? Riffe Euro is a sweet gun!

Never mind on the Riffe guns. I didn't realizes how expensive they were. Now I'm leaning more towards the Cressi Comanche or the Hammerhead Jurrasic.

Riffe Euro are $$$ but a great gun, if you want to save go with a RA...for the price of a Riffe you might as well take a look at the guns SettingSteel is making...send him a pm I've heard he's cutting some deals on SB members.

If you got sticker shock from the Riffe, look into Mako guns. Pretty cheap, with excellent customer service.

Chek the Sea Sniper Euros, pay a few dollars more but the quality and finish is great

Re: Riffe Euro or Standard for a beginner?

I have been shooting the 110 Predator Pro for about a year & have really enjoyed using it. No problems @ all & it's pretty much nighty night fishy when I line up a shot. I used the 130 ETR down in Baja & the only problem I had was there weren't a lot of big fish around! The Oceanic was a laser. Call Dano & he will style you for sure. Yes to accurate, reliable, & powerful. Good luck. Tommy
