Koah Spearguns, a Florida-based speargun manufacturer, is renowned not only for their durability, accuracy, and functionality, but also their beauty. Their TwinR Blue Water Roller Gun is no exception.
Outfitted with two roller bands, a five-part ported enclosed track, Brut Genesis trigger mechanism, Delrin ball bearing rollers, 11/32-inch (34-mm) heavy-duty shaft, and fully teak stocks, it packs a serious punch with almost zero recoil. The variable ballast system allows divers to remove one or more of the lead disks to balance the gun after adding accessories.
Stocks are book matched and balanced to prevent warping and delamination. The gun is then brightened up with a proprietary four-stage epoxy to give it gloss and protection.
When I mentioned that I personally had never owned a varnished gun because of the likely chipping that will follow real world use, Koah head John Ippolito said his company refinishes guns as well. For just $80 (~65 Euros), divers can send their guns back to Koah for a complete refinishing. For $200 (~162 Euros), they get the complete refit with new finish, new shaft, bands, and even rigging. Essentially, you send them your well-used and blemished baby and it comes back about two weeks later looking like it did on Day One.
The TwinR Blue Water Roller Gun retails for $1,250-$1,375 (~1,010-1,111 Euros) depending on whether you choose the 62-inch (157 cm) or the 68-inch (173 cm) Blue Water version.
