Technical characteristics

Muzzle and elastic bands
Cressi Moicano Camu muzzle bands & wishbone

Cressi Moicano comes with a pair of standard sling bands in pure black latex, S45, and 18 mm diameter. The muzzle gives the possibility to substitute the pair of sling bands with the longer and thicker versions as the G20 of 20 mm diameter. High quality caps in Delrin© with threads are designed so that threading and unthreading the bands can be done easily by hand. Also, a circular band can be added. Bands have 3 – 3.2 (300% – 320% – depending on the length) elongation coefficient. The muzzle is compact with a closed solution and made of PA66 30% glass loaded nylon. The line passage (fairlead) is made of a steel wire for high resistance to wear. The wishbone is the French articulated type steel solution.

Barrel

Camouflage barrel in greens and browns has a 26 mm diameter and is made in Anticorodal aluminium (6082T6 alloy). It is aesthetically attractive in multipurpose shades for Mediterranean and Atlantic areas. Thickness of the walls of the tube is 1 mm, and increases in the bottom part for greater rigidity, strength and consequent resistance and precision of the shot.

The line release is the simple standard solution with the glass loaded Nylon lever set in the inferior part of the handle in front of the hilt.

The security system is lateral of generous dimensions, but not particularly “feelable” with the hand once the spearo is holding the Moicano.

Handle

The handle has a special deeply tested angle for best shot precision. The material is PA66 30% glass loaded nylon, just as the muzzle. The grip has a TPE thermoplastic rubber rear cover in the area where the palm of the hand adheres to the handle. For best antislip effect the lateral and frontal part of the grip have spotter surfaces. The rear of the grip is white for best visibility on the sea floor, disappearing under the spearo’s hand when the Moicano is held.

Below the handgrip a passage integrated with the handle is present as line passage. At the front of the handgrip and laterally there are 2 line holding devices, the dovetail support for the reel and a glass loaded nylon passage as rail for the shaft. Two wings positioned laterally are present to facilitate loading without interfering with the Nylon line and also to clean the line of aim from it. The rear part the handle is complete with a short anti-slip TPE covered gun butt.

Shaft

Shaft is made in 17-4 PH (AISI 630) tempered steel and is 6 mm diameter with single barb and notches. The coating is burnished with light reflexion reduction. The area of the barb has no machining for improving penetration.

Comes with

Polyester line and sleeves.

In brief

The Cressi Moicano is definately a simple product, that in some solutions shows it is price wise positioned in the low part of the dossier. Still, the easiness, lightness and high brandishing qualities that such speagun definately has, make it an excellent value for money solution, especially in the shortest versions adapt for spearfishing where quick and short distance shots are needed. The reinforced barrel is a plus.
