Mares spearguns
Review Of Ludovico Mares Concept

Mares spearguns come from the list of scuba diving equipment from Mares. The spearguns concept under the brand was conceptualized by Ludovico Mares way back 1949. Together with the spearguns, Ludovico started creating the scuba diving mask as well.

The company behind Mares spearguns

There is a history behind why Ludovico started creating his Mares scuba diving line. Well, this can be tracked from the fact that he himself had a passion for underwater diving.

And by creating diving masks and Mares spearguns for public consumption, he believed that he will be able to share that passion to his followers.

Everything started with a small company found in Rapallo. Sixty years later, the Italian-based scuba diving gear company branched out to other countries all over the globe.

Now, it also makes use of innovative diving technologies to come up with the most competitive scuba diving equipment in the market.

Mares continues to be a proud maker of various products ranging from regulators to computers and from instruments to BC vests. The company also offers diving wear that includes not only a men's line but a women's line as well.

Add to that, it also has snorkels and fins on its list.

But going back to the original reason behind why Mares was created, you will certainly be interested to know more about the Mares spearguns. The collective name for Mares spearguns is the "Mares Pure Instinct".
