Who said an aluminium tube speargun cannot be perfect? Presenting the Meandros B32 - the speargun that overcomes all others!
This naked version of the B32 comes without reel, spear or rubbers. So you can customise it with whatever diameter, length and style of spear and rubbers you like, or add a reel and line of your choosing.
The B32 speargun is a 32mm barrel tubular rail speargun. Produced after extensive consideration, testing and attention to detail. Meandros incorporated all the features needed to make the ultimate railgun in terms of quality of construction, user-friendly operation and ballistic performance.
The B32 has resolved all the problems and weaknesses that are common with aluminium or carbon tubular barrels that have strong recoil, deformation of the barrel itself and buoyancy issues. The B32 has been developed to last and perform for a very long time, as all its components are of excellent design, quality and performance. Nothing has been left to chance!
The outer diameter of the aerospace aluminium alloy barrel (32x 1.65mm) in combination with the integrated shaft guide in the shape of a V not U, reduces friction and power losses whilst providing greater rigidity to the barrel even in lengths greater than 1.5 m. The greater mass and higher internal volume gives the proportional mass capable to quench recoil from heavy set-ups. The barrel stiffness combined with no recoil maximises precision and ballistic performance - from the tip of the spear 5 times the length of the barrel.
Most of the energy from the bands is absorbed and lost to recoil when the mass of the barrel and the gun is generally disproportionate to set-up. Similar performance and quality of shot cannot be obtained from a common barrel of 28x1mm aluminium or 30×2 mm carbon.
To maintain the rigidity outside of the barrel, attention is given in the connection points of the handle and head with the barrel, in terms of materials and static geometry so that even at high load, deformation of the connection points is almost zero. The handle has a super comfortable universal anatomical grip, at the perfect angle and position for movement, so that it feels like an extension of the hand. In terms of materials, structure and design, the handle responds successfully to large loads.
The mechanism is the most major and very important part of the speargun The Meandros handle is fitted with the worlds most robust, powerful and reliable Meandros reverse mechanism. This has excellent ergonomics and the ultimate operating system that is Patented & guaranteed. The mechanism self-centres the shaft through the generous entry mouth and has excellent line of sight. Also unaffected is the sensitivity of the short stroke trigger. The optimal angle and rotation of the trigger and unparalleled sensitivity is guaranteed even under heavy loads. As with other Meandros mechanisms, the right or left line release tappets are operated independently of the trigger and shaft. This prevents the hard trigger phenomenon, as well as the deformation and distortion of the shot profile.
The open-head is of a particularly hydrodynamic sleek shape design, which makes movement of the gun in any direction a simple task. The head also nests the double bands within the body to a different position and height of each, which contribute to agility and accurate shot whilst at the same time avoiding oscillations and friction between the bands.
The B32 open model exploits the maximum total length of which is about +25 cm from the length of the barrel - about 20 cm length is for loading. This simply translates to a speargun that has the same loading length as a speargun that would normally be 10-15cm longer and by longer it would also be more difficult to manoeuvre. The B32 is shorter more manoeuvrable but at the same time it is more powerful and accurate due to its clever construction.
The B32 is a fully integrated quality speargun, carefully constructed and studied in depth. These spearguns, in terms of features, quality and performance, will more than satisfy the high expectations of even the most discerning spearo.
