Mares Cyrano 1.1 70cm Pneumatic Speargun Product Description

 

The Mares Cyrano 1.1 70cm Pneumatic Speargun extremely popular for divers who are looking for a compact gun that can be easily stored away. It is a popular pick when choosing an air powered speargun due to its mid size length of 70cm that is perfect for shallow reef diving and catching small to mid size reef fish. This pneumatic speargun is universally appreciated by all spearfishermen for its accuracy, power, and reliability. The way that this particular pneumatic gun works is by using compressed air which propels the spear out of the barrel. There is a chamber inside the gun that you pump up using the hand pump provided to fill the chamber with air and this take approx 390 pumps which will give more than enough power to penetrate through small to mid size reef fish. There is a piston inside the barrel that moves when the spear is loaded and is what pushes the spear out when shot. Having the piston prevent air from escaping when the gun is shot which means that no air is released, giving you multiple shots without having to pump up the gun every time. Depending on how often you use the gun, will depend on how long it will take for more air to be added. 

 

The Mares Cyrano 1.1 70cm gun comes with a 7mm shaft witha single flopper, some line, the simple loader and hand held pump. It meets the needs of fishermen looking for great power and reliability, yet at a compact size. Generally this gun is used by boat owners who are looking to jump over board to catch their dinner, then store it away for the next meal. The length of gun does not determine the amount of power, the length determines how far of range you will have and the general rule is that the range from handle to tip of spear is 4 times the length of the gun so being 70cm, you will get approx 2.8m of shooting range. The operating line pressure is 20 BAR and the connecting piston is 1.5mm. The ergonomic handle is extremely comfortable to hold and this particular gun comes with an added feature of a holster that straps to your leg when diving so you can keep your gun out of the way with both hands free until you need to us it. Another great feature is the stainless steel trigger and line release, these have more potential of cracking when made of plastic so the 70cm Cyrano will out last all the restt.

 

To load the pneumatic gun, you use a "loader". This comes with the gun when you purchase it and is a small black plastic hand piece. This is held on the tip of the spear and is what you use to push the spear in to the gun against the air pressure. This is just as difficult as loading a standard rubber loader railgun as you are pushing against alot of pressure. The loader is something that you can not loose, if you lose it, you will no longer be able to load your speargun. Here at Dive Warehouse we recommend on always having a spare, but tie some thin rope to your loader and have it connected to your self of you gun to prevent from dropping or loosing it.

Care Instructions0

 

  • Rinse with fresh water after every use to remove all sand and sea water
  • Keep rubbers in the freezer if not being used for long periods of time - this slows down the perishing process
  • Remove spear when cleaning and dry throughly before storing
  • Keep in a dry and safe place
  • Store in a speargun bag if possible
  • Do not load out of water
  • Do not rely on the safety catch

 

Extras:   When purchasing a speargun, there are a few extras that we recommend you purchase to complete you kit. A float rope and divers float are the 2 main extras. The rope is connected to the gun at handle and the other end of the rope is to be connected to the float, this will ensure you will not loose your gun by accidental dropping it, or having a fish steal it! (It does happen). A pair of gloves is another item that we recommend you purchase also. Once you have shot your fish, trying to grab it and finish the kill can be very difficult without gloves. Fish are not only slippery but also have made spikes and teeth. Gloves will prevent cuts and scratches as well as grip. Here at Dive Warehouse we are loading with information regarding spearfishing, gear and tips so feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What is the warranty?

 

Mares Spearguns have a 2 year warranty on the handle, trigger mech and barrel.

 

Do I need a license to buy a speargun?

 

You do not need a license to purchase a speargun, howevere you may need a fishing license depending on which state you are in. In Queensland you do not need a fishing license.

 

How do I load my pneumatc speargun?

 

If the gun is short enough, you can place the butt of the gun on your hip and use the simle loader to load the spear using both hands. If the pneumatic gun is too long for you to reach when it is on your hip, place the butt of the gun on your foot with your foot flexed and load the gun this way.

 

How do I know when the gun needs more air?

 

The Mares pneumatic spear guns come pre-pumped so you will not have to pump them up when you purchase them. When you start to feel the shooting power dropping off, you will need to add a few extra pumps in to the barrel using the provided hand pump. 

 

Where can I go spearfishing on the Gold Coast?

 

On the Gold Coast, you will need to stay out of all of the rivers and the broadwater. Stick to the headlands and ocean. There are fines if you get caught where you should not be and your gear can be confiscated. 

 

What length is best for me?

 

The best length of speargun for you depends on where you are spearfishing. If you are in shallow reef waters then a shorter gun from 50cm -110cm is perfect. If you are in deep open waters then 110cm - 140cm is perfect.

 

Which one is a beginner gun?

 

All of the spearguns work in a simular way. There is no such one as a beginner gun, its more about quailty and what you are prepared to spend for your first gun. The more you spend, the better the quality they will be.

 

Can I shoot the gun out of water?

 

No, this is dangerous and all spearguns are to be used in water only. 

 

What else do I need once I have me speargun?

 

Once you have purchased your speargun, you will need a knife to kill your catch, a float and flag to connect the gun to and your mask, snorkel and fins. These are the necessary items however there are many more things you can add on like a wetsuit, gloves, socks, stringer, flasher & more.
