The rails are slightly taller to stop side-to-side motion during the kick-cycle. This will be available all the way down to Men’s size 4-5. Pricing will be in the US$570 (~€500) range though is still TBD for 2019.
The Invictus speargun, in Carbon and Hydroformed (HF) Cuttlefish barrel shape, will come with a three-band muzzle suitable for 14mm bands.
