The new Omer Invictus, that we have already presented in the Invictus Rex version, we analyze now in its top version with carbon fiber barrel. More rigidity and lightness for the Invictus line!
Handle and release mechanism
100% 316L laser-cut stainless steel release mechanism mounted on a 30% glass loaded Nylon PA 6.6 handle. The elements of the reversed mechanism are well designed, with longer leverages to increase sensitivity. Well-shaped are the robust trigger and the smoothed edges lateral line release lever, easily shiftable right or left.
The handle has a modern design, robust but slim at the same time. The chest support is removable but extremely well-matched with the handle and with a good concave upper profile for a clean line of aim. The frontal part of the handle is complete with two small lateral wings to move away the monofilament from the line of aim and the shaft shark fins, for easier connection of the wishbones to the shaft.
The safety system regulation is only on the right side and small, so not well feelable by the spearos hand with neoprene glove, and totally not by a left handles holding the speargun.
The grip is covered with a nice well preformed symmetrical white TPR, thermoplastic, material.
It is the upgrade of the Omer Invictus compared to the Rex, a 100% 3k Carbon with 90° fiber direction on the inside and twill outside to give more rigidity. Dimensions are 28 mm diameter circular section, 1.2 mm thick wall and a glued on shaft guide. This is not the neatest solution, even though some companies indicate that the final result is as good if not better than the integrated shaft guide on carbon fiber barrels. The barrel is connected to the muzzle and the handle with double O-rings. Available lengths are 75, 90, 100, 110 and 130.
Muzzle and elastic bands
Probably one of the slimmest design muzzles on the market, this solution by Omer is made of 30% glass loaded Nylon PA 6.6 has a triple passage for circular elastic bands and asymmetrical protuberances for the passage of the line.
The standard setting includes two circular bands for lengths 75 and 90 cm, and triple-band for 100, 110 and 130 cm, of 14 mm diameter with 3.2 elongation coefficient. Wishbones are in Dyneema.
The is a stainless steel single barb set on the superior part, three shark fins all with a hole for the passage of the monofilament. The diameter of the shaft is 6.5 mm for the 75 and 90 cm, and 6.75 mm for 110 and 130 cm long spearguns.
The list price of the Omer Invictus Carbon starts from 299 € for the 75 cm length, and it positions itself at the very top of the dossier of the best spearguns between 200 and 300 €.
