I have never used that gun but from what I remember its a nice gun. I have a cheap aluminum gun I use most of the time for banging around but I bought a Woody Magnum(3 band gun) for my dream of bigger fish(maybe one day a tuna). I guess if you get it cheap you cant go wrong for a first gun but it is too nice to beat into the rocks after sheep. Good luck with it. Martin

The only problem with those (the Magnum and Magnum XHD) is that the shaft are way too thick, at close range the XHD are very powerfull just because of the amount of metal weight/force from the shaft with 3 slings (good for grouper) at close-in shots but for low vis. small to mid. size fish the Sawed-off is an overkill and too heavy in my opinion but better than no gun at all. Don't get me wrong I own several of these and for the money you can't go wrong but just stay away from their low-end guns. Remember that a heavy shaft has a lot of penetration at close-in but it drops fast and loose steam very very fast!

Thank you for responses...I bought the gun because like i said the price was very good...Less than half of what he had in it...Got a spare tip as well..I just have to practice now..I guess my first real attempt will be the spades . I'm going to the swimming hole in the next few days and play with it...I'm sure i will have more questions after this....Hopefully be a successful hunter before long...Thanks again Donnie B......

Though it would be good to use on small fish.
